Question about Technics SC-EH780 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

CDs keep jumping

When I am listening to anything with heavy bass my CD keeps jumping. Surely it shouldn't jump that bad. I have tried brand new cds so it has nothing to do with scratches. It has been like this since day one .

Re: CDs keep jumping

The problem is not with the CDs, but with the laser pick up unit of your player. Cleaning the pick up unit is simple but I advise you not to venture that unless you are sure how to do it without damaging it, most probably this will fix the problem, if not you will have to change the pick up unit. If you are a techie, try adjusting the trimpot found on the pick up unit just a bit before changing the pick up unit.

Brand new Cd's and they skip and stop?Could it be the radio?

If it happens with multiple CDs, possibly. Try playing them in something else. Are they commercial CDs or burned?

You may need to get a cleaning CD.

Sharp XL-HP505 Not playing CDs

Hi try this.....

Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR ALL" appears, then power on your system.

This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....

Hope this helps
