I have an RCA stereo CD player/digital radio Model RB3755B. It has started making a loud clicking noise when plugged in or when the CD is activated. The CD player does not work.

    No, the CD does not appear to be spinning at all. When you turn it by hand with the door open, it spins freely, but when the door has shut, the clicking starts up again and the CD does not spin.

    How do I find the manufacturer's number if I do not have the owner's manual any longer? When I look up RCA on the internet, the only information seems to be about buying things, not repairing their products.



    There is no CD stuck in the player and the door opens just fine. I have put a CD in, so there must be something fundamentally wrong with the spinning mechanism. What would happen if I try to disassemble the player myself?

    The stereo radio works just fine. So I do not think that the protect mode is on.

This clicking noise is the servo motor in mal-function the servo motor is what spins the cd. These players that are set up like this usually give out early because of the orientation of the cd, So the remedy is repair the motor or go with another type that is setting flat. These units do not last long because of the way the cd is played.

Hi.
If the unit is working, but CD keeps clicking and only CD does not work, that means that there is a CD stuck inside, or that the eject mechanism is stuck.


If instead the stereo keeps clicking and does not start up, and no function is working, that is because the unit is on protect mode.

When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.


Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.


Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.


If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.


In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.


If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.



Regards.

When I press "open" for the cd player to open on


Hi, if you know which way the door opens somtimes it is possible to gently slide the door in the direction it needs to go in. If not you may have to disassemble to reattach the rubber band that drives the door ( which is more than likely what the noise your hearing is.) I hope this provides some help. feel free to ask again for help disassembing, maybe provide model number and such. So good luck and thanks for asking FixYa. Prodzilla

I have the RCA stereo CD player/digital radio. Use the timed sleep button to play a cd and have it turn off automatically. All of a sudden, it doesn't work. It spins but doesn't play and I can't open...


Hi,

To start with, i would like to inform you that repair would not make any sense. The RCA alarm clock is easily available between $25 - $50 depending upon the model and the options.To take to a repair shop, he would charge around $25 - $50 to open it and then cost of parts and labor would be on top of this.

This seems to be a hardware failure ranging from problem in electronic circuitry to issues like lens problem.You could try to open the player.Clean the dust and dirt with a compressed can. Clean the lens with cotton. Assemble all the parts again. There is no point if purchasing the lens or any hardware stuff, as the cost of the part would be more than the part of the new machine.

I hope i have been helpful!!

Thank you!!
