    Hi,

    Just went and tried a re-set still to no avail. When I push scource I get tuner and standby, also I'm not sure if it's lighting up correctly. The tuner works perfectly and it is storing the pre-sets, it's as if it can't see the cd as it wont let me put one in ?

Hi,

The normal source selections for this model when the SRC button is pressed are: TUNER, CD and STANDBY.

If there is no CD inside the tray, or if it is dirty, unreadable, inverted or damaged, then the CD source option will not display at all.

If the there is a known good CD placed properly inside the tray and the CD source will still not show as a source selection, you may need to RESET the unit. The reset button is near mid bottom. This will also erase all settings, memory and tuner presets.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    I am assuming then that there is a known good CD inside the unit and yet no selectable CD as SRC (source).

    Then the issue may be with the CD reader internally. The only easy check (and hopefully repair) is to use a CD cleaner readily available from most computer shops. This looks like any other CD except it has a small brush like protrusion that is intended to clean the laser reader eye/lens.

    If still a no go, am afraid that the unit needs to be pulled out and opened for diagnosis of the CD mechanism and circuitry. This would require that you be familiar with electronics and components, possibly the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable doing a DIY, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    The CD power circuitry is integral to the whole unit, one power for all. A couple of possibilities:
    a) there is already a CD stuck inside, you would need a tweezer or something to pull it out other than disassembly;
    b) CD loading mechanism/motor defective, stuck, blocked, it would need to be rebuild;
    c) your 2nd post "...not sure if it's lighting up correctly..." indicates possibility of internal problem perhaps in the power distribution, voltage regulator. Back to the last paragraph of my second post.

My Sound Space12 powers on but there's no display and no manual or remote functions to operate the discs or the other functions.Can you provide a answer.regards


If the system is connected properly and the main tuner power is on you will see the orange standby light on in the front of the main diamond shaped control unit. If that light is not on, you have not connected the system and power cables properly.

If the standby light is not lit, press the power on/off button in the middle of the rectangular processor/tuner to turn it off and unplug the main power cord from the main tuner/processor from the wall. Next, ensure that all of the power, video and audio cables from the diamond shaped control unit are properly connected to the large tuner/processor. Since you are there, check any other av in/out connections.

Now that you have checked and adjusted the cables between the controller and the tuner, plug the tuner back into the wall and push the power on button. Now check the standby light again on the diamond shaped controller unit.

Once that light is lit, press the silver, horizontal on button in the middle of the diamond shaped display unit, or the Power Standby/On button on your main remote control and you are operational.

Driving along and radio stopped working, the word "ocer" came across face of radio. Now, radio and cd player both will not work. Help!


I pushed the reset button and "standby" mode appeared. I proceeded to hit the source button and switched to tuner and cd player with no problems.

Wont turn on


No, most units will at least work basic functions without a remote. What is the make / model? I would take it back as soon as you can.
