If the moise sounds like a stretched spring, it is most probably tracking noises you are hearing. Try cleaning the focal lens. It may have have a layer of laser dustus interuptus on it making the servo drives work hard. Do this with a cotton tip moistened with Windex, then a light gentle polish afterward with a dry one to be sure that no residue of smearing is left. If the problem persists, then more involved work will need to be done to the unit. Maybe realignment of tracking and focus servos(they are producing the noise)and or a replacement laser fitted and and then subsequent realignment. Sometimes you can back off the servos to allow for quieter operation. Experience here is the best teacher. Good luck, hope this snippet of info helps you. If it doesn't, happy to talk further on it, but you may need to sharpen you optic alignment skills ;)

Why does it make an annoying squeezy sound when I open the left door?

The gasket is new and should become less noisy the more often it is flexed.

Cd changer tray wont open

There is some mechanical trouble with the tray loading mechanism. you must ahve thorough knoledge and experience in repairing changer mechanisms. Unlike individual disc mechanisms, changers will have more alignment points and gear wheels. Moreover, there will be spring, which will have high strength. As you try to open the mechanism, the spring will slip out. It is a very hard job for an unexperienced person to refit this spring in position. OK.

We have a Kodak Carousel 4600 projector that needs repair. It holds 80 slides and it runs quitely while there is no slide showing. Once the remote kicks over to show a slide the fan gets really...

I suspect the problem you have is a stretched drive belt (from the power motor to the slide change mechanism). The good news is there are still parts available from: The problem is the replacement of this belt is a involved disassembly - at the very least you would need great mechanical aptitude and (most important) a service manual. I would recommend locating a factory-trained service dealer to make this repair for you.
Good Luck !

Audio on videos terribly noisy and hissy

Low-res audio and AVI video is probably the best you're going to get. It is a still camera first, after all.

CD Changer noise

That sounds like a bad ground wire. You may have mice eating wires. Try gently shaking the changer to see if its a loose connection. the noise will go away if its a loose connection there. if not it may need a pro to find the wire problem. if you have access to the cd changer wiring, unplug it entirely and see if the noise goes away.

I installed an "Audi 6-disc changer" in my 2001 A6. The installation went without a hitch..connection and bracket mounting was fine... it performs as expected except it seems to be extra...

Most CD changers for cars have setting for the internal springs. The springs are postioned one way for a vertical mounting and 90 degrees different for a horizontal mounting. If this is incorrect, set for vertical when it is mounted horizontal or vice-versa, the unit will skip very easy.

I am not familiar with the Audi changers, I repair only aftermarket changers like Kenwood, JVC, Sony ect. but they all have a mounting direction setting on the sides of the changer. It can be adjusted with a flat head screwdriver. Try looking for this setting on the outside edges of the changer.

I hope this helps and a "FixYa!" rating would be appreciated if this free help solves your problem.

Thanks and let me know if I can be of any more assistance,

Door won't shut

Is there sufficient spring reaction? Spring weak or broken? Has latch or catch moved? Is there adjustment on either? Is there debris stopping mechanism from working? Has door dropped?
