Pioneer PD-206 wont power up

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?

Hi tfulton


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
me here. :)

CD STOPPED PLAYING AT TRACK 3 AND NOW WILL NOT PLAY AT ALL. PD-65 HAS BEEN STORED (NOT USED) FOR SEVERAL YEARS APPRX 7. DOES IT NEED CLEANED


First try ejecting the disk and unplugging the unit power cord for five minutes.

if that did not work, that probably means you have a lens problem.

Use a dvd lens cleaner kit , like the ones that you see clicking here.

Ifthat does not work, you will need to take apart the unit, access thelens pickup, and clean the lens directly, using isopropyl alcohol and acotton sticks.

I have a Pioneer PD-M501 6 disc player and when i load a disc into one of the trays in the magizine it doesnt read it and it keeps changing disc trays, it skips it and said no disc, whats up?


Make sure you place the disk correctly in the caddy, (Upside down in the caddy). It seems backwards, but I had it do that, and I flipped the cd over, and it worked.

Pioneer pd m502 cd player. If power is restored after a failure the player defaults to turning back on. How can I prevent this?


Hi

You may not be able to. Some older gear used to have this as a feature for using a central timer switching the mainsvoltage to al devices. If you wanted to do a cool weekend project, the best you could do would be design and fit a one shot 555 timer across the on off switch, that keys it back off after say 1 second. OR You can find a specialist reset devices that will supply a "pulse" to operate the switch electronically.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.
