Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Skipping CD We tried cleaning the CD's but every CD seems to skip so we tried cleaning out dust from the player itself but that didn't work either. What could we do or where could we go to have this problem fixed and how much would that cost. The system that I have is a Venture 5CD, Home Stereo System, Model # CD2775MSW

    I've had my SONY CMT-M100MD for 5 years now. Everything works perfectly apart from the cd player. It doesn't matter what cd it is it always skips on track 1 of every cd. I even bought the best cd laser cleaner-it skipped on that too. Are these models still available to buy?

Every CD skips. Seems to skip very badly at the beginning of each track and then about a third of the way through it will play normally. I have put the CD's in the correct way and have cleaned the dust...

The dust has probably got on the lens, which needs to be cleaned too. You can try a lens cleaning disc. But if that doesn't work I would use some Servisol Video 40 on it.

When I turn the system on the CD Drawer keeps going in and out repeatedly by itself. When I load a CD it won't recognize it and won't play it and keeps going in and out opening and closing by...


Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.

Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.

Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.

Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips,look for loose or broken internal connections.possibly have gears and belts replaced.

Disc will not play appears to be skipping

There is a product called a cd/dvd lens cleaning disc. Worth the investment to have around.

Be sure discs are free of dust and scratches.

Cd's are skipping. cleaned discs and still skipping. tried cd's in different player and they work fine.

3M makes a CD lens cleaner that is a playable CD with micro brushes sticking out of the surface of the CD.
You can find them at office supply stores, K-mart, etc. I don't remember where I bought mine, but it works great for a CD-recorder that I use in a high dust environment.

Here's a link
to one that I just found by googling "3m cd lens cleaner"

I've never dealt with that vendor before, but it has a picture of the product so you can see what I'm talking about.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" for me!

CD is skipping

Probably need to clean the lens inside the player. If you have compressed air you can GENTLY spray inside the tray to remove dust, otherwise go to Walmart and buy a CD cleaning kit to clean your lens. If it still skips then you might have a bad disc or player

Hope this helps

Plays cd's but lots of skipping going on. I tried cleaning with a CD player disc cleaner that I got today. That didn't help. None of the CD's skip in another machine. Thanks!!

When optical lens got dusty or thin layer of dust on lens, cd starts skipping, as you tried cleaning with lens cleaner cd but no result.
You need to open the unit and clean the lens with good quality cotton bud / swab with care.
Still no joy, replace optical lens.

Cd player skipping

The DVD transport rides on chrome rails. These get dust and stuff on them and wont allow the optics to track.

If you dare, open the unit UNPLUGGED from the AC.
See if you can get at those rails easily. clean with WD40 on a swab. clean with a new swab . then a couple drops of mystery oil on a swab and run down the rails over and under.
You must be VERY gentle if you clean the lens with isopropyl
