CD player skipping

The right side CD player is skipping and stuttering with a number of different CD's indicating it must the CD deck and not the cd's. I find this tends to happen after about 20 minutes of operation and it is only the right hand side deck.

Try to clean it manualy. Remove cover, use dilute alcohol and cotton, be careful and DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD, be very gentle. Good luck.

CDN95 uses the same CD transport as a CDX, aka....junk. Its mostly likely defective, replace left CD drive.

Unplug the unit, remove the cover and clean the laser lens glass with a Q-tip. Spray a bit of window cleaner on one end of the Q-tip (over a sink), then use that end to clean the objective lens of the laser. Then dry it with the other end. Wipe Carefully!

Do not apply pressure while cleaning, wipe slowly and then reassemble the unit and test. This is a common problem on many laser-based products, dust and smog get inside the unit and cloud the lens, causing it to skip or not read at all.

You're best bet is to replace the stock rubber feet with a true vibration absorbing rubber pad. Audiofiles like myself have discovered that Sorbothane rubber is the best for this application. There is no other material that can even come close to matching it's performance. Get yourself a set of their Sorbothane rubber hemispheres, probably something about a 1" diameter would work best. The best place to get them is

1.25" Sorbothane Rubber Hemispheres

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is

At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.

Have a Denon DCD-520 and it skips forward and back while playing

Hopefully, it may just need cleaning and lube.

I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.

Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.

Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.

Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.

Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.

Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.
