Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a basic Pioneer PD-206 CD player. I tried playing a copied CD and it powered down and now doesnt switch on at all. Although it didnt always recognise copied discs in the past I could at least eject them and play something else. Is it toast?
Try disconnecting from the power and powering it up again to reset the unit.
If it still wont cooperate, the unit will have popped a IC protector in the power supply. Not an uncommon fault. The burnt disc you used may have pushed the tracking servos a little hard and a circuit protector has kicked it. Pop the lid off and look for a black 2 wire device about 4mm across that viewed from above has a D shape. Measure it with an ohm meter....It should read low ohms, if it does not... it has failed. It may be marked as ICPxx(from memory)
A fast fix we used for this is to grab the device and give it a 200 deg twist to short the legs together. Soemtimes(often) the body of the device will break off, just solder the legs left behind.
They have a habit of failingl with no reason, and shorting across them will not affect the operation of the unit, nor put it anything in jeopardy.
OR pull the board out... and replace the device, although I can tell you through experience, they may fail again.
Good luck, if you have any questions, just get back to
