I had the same problem last night, I tried everything like you did, maybe I just got lucky. I was about to open the case of the unit, the system boot stopped and it went to sleep mode, then I turned it on and luckily the CD can be ejected. Just try playing around with it, you might get lucky. Good Luck...... NOTE: Never play that CD again in your SongCube

I have 5 disc changer that will revolve but wont play disc just keep running.


What you hear running may be a fan, a motor that spins the CD, the motor that moves the head in & out, or the motor that turns the turntable.
I suspect on something that old, the motor that spins the CD may be worn out. Place 1 CD in position and make note of the exact position of the words on the CD, let the player go through all 5 positions and see if the CD is still in the exact position that it was when you started. If this is the problem there's usually no easy way to fix it.
If the turntable doesn't turn, then it's that motor or a possibly a belt that no longer works.

There is also the possibility that the read head is no longer moving in and out smoothly, you'll have to take the unit apart and re-grease the slides with light lithium grease.

The read head being dirty or too dusty is another possibility, but even less likely. When you get it apart, clean the read head with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol, anything harsher might damage the components.

Radio is on and I can see the numbers, but I can't hear it; however, I can hear the CD..


sounds like an antenna problem to me. It might have come loose from the radio. A car stereo shop or dealer could help on this one.

I can hear sound out of the player for the radio but not when i put in a cd I can't hear. I tried with one cd or 5 CDs.


If you have audio from the radio, all of the internal components are working, such as the power amp. If the CD section is not working, a switching relay, or connection may be at fault. If a read head is misaligned, you cannot pick up data from the CD and communicate with the audio out either. If the CD's are CLONES (copies) they too may not work. There are many reasons, and that mentioned are only a few.

I can hear music from radio with head phones...but not thru speakers. Worked until I used the CD.


i have to refer you to the users manual -- i am sure its an easy fix -- have you tried reading the manual and locating a mute biutton or switch to take you from audible to head phone set ?

I bought a '96 Mustang with an Alpine CHM 5620 CD player already installed. The unit appears in great shape and looks as if it were installed by a pro. It seems to load up the CD cartridge and change CDs...


This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.

But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.

Everything works fine when i play a cd it works it reads it but dont hear the music when i turn to radio i hear the music,just wondering what could be wrong help me out thanks..


First off how long have you owned the unit? Did you buy it new? Did it ever work playing cd's? it sounds like either a setting problem or a hardware problem with the unit. Once I have more information I can assist you further in trying to isolate the problem.
Thank you,
Lee

You can try using a head cleaning cd to clean the head. You can buy these cleaning cds in most places where they sell cds. If this doe not fix you problem, you will need to call Emerson customer support at this telephone number. 1-800-909-1240.

RADIO PROBLEM


you should be able to get a factory connector for the unit that matches the stereo to the vehicle internal wiring. you will have to go to the dealer for this but you should not have to get a new head unit. please rate this solution....thanks
