Question about CD Players
All my music CD's play well on my CD player except for one disc (original). This disc plays well on my computer and in my vehicle. When played on my player, the music comes out fine from 1 speaker, but the lyrics coming out of the other speaker has a metallic sound although I can understand the words. My player is almost 12 years old. Can you help?
SOURCE: intermitent audio
I had that happen before, one problem was my car had bad shocks or i hit a pothole in the road. The second time i had the volume up so loud the bass wass thumping the floor and it skips the CD. My question is, how lowd is the thign turned up? :P Some CD players load the data into a memory and then it plays from the memory till it needs more info. It maybe that the unit is not stable or the CD is not balanced right so it cant read the info at a consistant speed. The music maybe playing faster then it can read because of the vibrations. Is the disk clean? i know this may sound dumb but it is easy to over look. If the surface of the data side is so scratched up it may have problems reading the data quickly enough. Sometimes the coating can fall of the disk if you hold it in the light you can sometimes see spots threw the disk where the foil has been chipped off. The CD player could have a focus problem also, it could be damaged in shipping or have been dropped and it cant focus properly on the data. Do you have any other disks to try? a new one? one you never play?

You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.

SOURCE: NAD C541i CD Player plays but...
hi, i've had a few nad C541i's and not so long since the sound on one of them cut out for milliseconds and on some occasions the sound would make the noise very much like a severely scratched vinyl record, i thought it was a faulty laser so i tried another KSS-213C laser out of a scrap kenwood and the fault persisted. to cut a long story short, i took the main PCB out and there were various dry joints. once these were resoldered i was blessed with a fully functioning player. hope this helps?
