Re: CD Jumps

This is what solved the problem for me (no idea why but it worked, so no guarantee that this may not damage your device eventually): Open the device in order to make the cd player unit accessible. This is tedious, since everything is packed very tightly inside there and some screws fixing the cd unit are hidden underneath some electronic parts and some cables have to be pulled out in order to access it. This will take about 20 to 30 minutes. Then, having put out the cd unit, watch the circuit board below the cd player. There are 3 small screws (do not really look like screws though). These are potentiometers I guess. For me it worked to turn the one which is called "RV103" a quarter turn clockwise (I had electricity connected while everything was disassembled to test if this works - PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL IF YOU DO SO!). I repeat, it works but no idea why and how. It was some work for me but I really love the sound of the device and I am very happy I got it working again!

Getting a whine from CD player

Hi there! i have listed out the parts of cd player(see image). The clamper is a part of the cd tray ejecting mechanism that is under the tray. The pcb is used to power the lens mechanism and the laser you are talking about is a part of the lens mechanism(it uses laser to read the discs). Now tell me where did the tech tell you install the brass string and i will help you out

Hello please my cd player is jumping, when you play an audio cd it start skiping

If it only does it on some CD's see my Tip on removing scratches.

If it does it all CD's you need to clean the lens of the laser. If that doesn't work you might have to think about replacing the laser/lens. It might not be cheap either!

CD playing erratic

Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs

Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.

The CD player does not work

It sounds like a mis-aligned laser or faulty laser unit. Either way unless you have experience of fixings cd players yourself its a job for the technicians. Good luck.

The CD lens may need cleaning.
Try a 'wet' CD lens cleaner.
The laser PU may be low emision.
