Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Broken Magnavox 5 disc changer

It makes a really loud and continuous clicking sound when the door is opened. It will not play the CD's and only reads "ERROR". I took it apart and I see what looks like some sort of capaciter with an arm that turns against a wheel or gear. Both are turning continuously while the door is open. This is located directly under the bottom circuit board. It is an older player. I'v had it for about 16 years, but it is the best one I have ever had.
The Model # is CDC796 1701. The serial # is 23304799.

Thank you for your help.

My 2001 RCA 5 CD Disc Player won't open and makes a continuous motor sound. I thought a cd was stuck, I took the top cover off and removed the offending disk. However the problem remains. The player


Five disc players often develop indexing problems. While you have the top cover off, first read and heed the laser warning then you can watch the mechanism spin around merrily trying in vain to find a home position. You also can insert a disc in a random position (say number 1) and watch it be unable to locate the disc and display the location correctly.

The cd door is stuck as if a cd is out of place. Won't open enough to see the problem.


Before, when trying to see the problem, I clicked "skip" to see if it would go through all the discs. It did, but still wouldn't open the door. Later, I clicked "play" each time, then "skip", and after going through all 5 discs, the door opened. Go figure.

When i press cd on my radio it constantly says reading on the screen but no sound is coming out.i have a classic beetle and it needs music


The problem normally is to the reading head. You have to open the player find the head and clean it with a cotton stick very gently. Then try to listen a cd. If it works it's ok, or else your head is broken and you have to replace it thing that I am not suggesting because of the high cost of the head.

YAMAHA CD PLAYER WON'T PLAY


GG  My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player.  The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader.  They get dust on them and simply cannot read.  The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.

CD malfunction


It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.
