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.
Regards
Chas

    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

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


HELLO

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.

ALL THE BEST (:-)
