Kenwood Compact Disc Player DP-2060

Hi Techman...Please could you HELP!
I've had this player for a good few years although it's had very little use.Very recently we've completed some renavation work to our house and thought it might be nice to start using the player.Its a single disc player played through a seperate Kenwood Amplifier KA-3020
When in use the tracks occasionally skip and jump. Ive carefully cleaned the laser with cotton & meths but its made no differance, its doing my head in.
I know its a chuck away world these days but because it cost a fair bit a few years ago I'm very reluctant to throw it.

    My DP 2060 is not used that often, but when I do it tends to skip and won't play a song all of the way through. It sometimes stops completely.

SOURCE: New laserunit won't work

You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.

SOURCE: Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.

I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help

I have a kenwood dp-r99 cd player and the cd is stuck inside with an ee message. How do I open the CD player?

6 or 7 phillips head screws. 2 or 3 across the back and two on each side. Slide the top towards the back then up. You will be able to get to all CD's with the top off. Hope this helps

Player stops mid track and shows ''no disc''.


Have you tried cleaning the lens? It's incredible how a dirty lens can cause so much grief! You'll need the CD player cover removed and powered off then get some isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud. Wet the bud but not too much get any excess moisture off.

Using a careful circular motion clean the lens, let it dry and try the player again. If this does not cure the problem, you may have a defective laser and that will need replacing.

Some one is selling me Pioneer PD-F100 Compact Disc Player for $30 bucks,Can some one help on this, does the price okay,I would like to know if this player is a good machine to buy........ Thanks for any...

Hi Danny,

30 bucks for a 100 CD changer? Not too shabby. Even if it is about 13 years old, it's a Pioneer.

A few things to check. First, make sure you get the remote too. There are a few functions that are only accessible through it.

Make sure it can register, read/play and restore CD's from both ends of the carrier. Pick a few at random in the middle too.

Bring some head phones in case theres nothing to plug it into. You know, make sure it works.

Other than that, good find.

Have fun with your new Jukebox

Playing CD-RW audio CDs on Kenwood DP-J2070

try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.
