Question about Harman Kardon FL8385 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

I get an error signal ''E'' and the carousel (5 disc cd changer) won't turn until it is turned off and on several times. If I can fix it myself, that would be great, otherwise, perhaps you can suggest a good repair shop in the Los Angeles or S. Cal area. The CD changer is the Harman Kardon TL8500/TL8600

They all have belt problems after 6+ years. Take it apart and replace the worn out belts and you are good to go.

Troubleshoot cd changer


Unfortunately, you have to remove the screws that hold the top cover on the player, unless you can remove the ones still in place one at a time through the door. If you can remove all the ones still in position, you might be able to get the remaining ones by flipping the player over.

I HAVE A 5 DISC CHANGER.......I PLUG IT IN, TURN ON POWER AND THEN PUSH OPEN. OPEN COMES UP ON THE SCREEN BUT THE TRAY DOES NOT OPEN. WILL NOT SKIP FROM ONE DISC TO ANOTHER EITHER???????? ANY...


The 5 disc carousel CD player has a belt driven mechanism in it. And after about 3-4 years the belt looses its tension and cannot push the tray in or out. If you keep your ears on the top cover and turn on the system you will hear a whirring sound coming from the inside which will prove my point.
There are two belts in the machine. One for the eject mechanism and the other for disc change mechanism. One has to seek professional help to replace both because there is timing sequence also involved like the cam shaft of an engine.

How do I clean a 5 CD disc changer?


i think the concept of this type of machine is one actual disc reader (the eye needing the cleaning) and a carousel that carries discs to the play position. So a cd lens cleaner can be placed in any of the carousel parts and do as much good as in another, once should be enough.

Jvc xl-f254 cd changer for home. 5 disc changer. Carousel will not slide out. makes humming noise, possibly trying to open.


Take the cover off and inspect for a jammed disc.

If there are no jammed discs you either have a broken belt or stripped gear.

You will have to take the unit apart and inspect, belts are commercially available from electronic stores and are a cheap easy fix!

Let me know if you need more details or guidance.

Cheers!

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel


This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!
