Question about Stanton C.304

3 Answers

Stanton 304 After approx 2-6 mins of playback, the cd deck lcd display goes blank (but remains blue, i.e. doesn't lose power) and then READ flashes as if the player can no longer read the cd and the player locks up until i turn it on and off. I have checked all the power cables by changing with my other identical deck and the same thing happens. I suspect that because of the time period before it stops working it could be a fan problem and maybe tripping out overheating but I need help as it is no longer under warranty. Is this something that sounds familiar?

    The problem happens during playback. After a period of playback time the deck will rapidly reset its self, any settings I had adjusted like removing the pitch lock and setting pitch to 8 will go back to the settings they were on when I first turned the unit on.
    Playback stops and the decks are useless. At first all was fine but after a while one started to go wrong then the other one did the same.

    a Stanton C 304 has nothing to do with DVD's. It is a CD deck used for DJ'ing.

Some DVD players simply don’t support these types of discs. Others may play VCDs or SVCDs only if the discs were authored with certain settings, which the VCD/SVCD/DVD creation software may point out. The same goes for DVD playback software, although the developer may provide a patch or plug-in to enable this functionality.

First, consult the DVD player’s documentation for VCD/SVCD support. If your DVD player allows firmware updates, as some DVD recorders do, try updating it. Update your DVD playback software if applicable.

Also, you may find that different burning software, even from the same developer, may make discs compatible with your player. For an Apex DVD player, as an example, we were able to create working SVCDs with NeroVision Express, but not with Nero Express. Both titles come in the Nero 6 and 7 Ultra Edition suites.

Try burning the disc at a slower speed. Also, certain brands of CD-R may work better than others for this application. Roxio says that some players cannot read recordable media at all. Other sources say that CD-RWs might work better in some players.

Read up on your disc authoring software’s settings for VCDs and SVCDs in its help file, settings menus, or support section of the developer’s Web site. Try different settings related to compatibility. If all else fails, try the ones that will make “non-standard” discs

    There's a certain problem of some parts into the SCS.1d Deck features. Can may maybe upto the LCD “scribble strip” to let you know what parameter you’re tweaking without looking up from the deck.



    SCS 1d is like having many “virtual turntables” at your disposal; a single button press is all it takes to switch from one deck to the “next.”



    If this defective it will cause the system into malfunctioning state.



    thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...


Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
