CD player skips on early tracks

I have a Sone CDP-790 CD player. It plays later tracks perfectly, but doesn't advance properly on the early tracks (the first three tracks of a classical CD). Any suggestions?

    Many thanks for taking the time to help me. I could only find one rail,
    but I have sparingly lubricated it and the driving gears. Its all
    pretty clean and I couldn't find any obvious problems, so I'll see how
    it goes over the next few weeks.



    Again, many thanks.

The lens assembly in a CD player glides along on a two rail track, kinda like a railroad track except tubular. The lens carriage is moved over this track by a small motor driving a worm gear. (Think long, tubular and spiral). If the rail tracks or the worm gear dry up or have dust accumulating on them, this could be the cause. Normally they have a light gear oil or lithium grease on them to keep them lubricated.

ALL DISKS SKIP ON MY SONY CDP - CX53...SOLUTION?


Hi,
If you have access to the lased head, gently wipe the lens with a stick with cotton moistened with isopropyl alcohol, or regular sanitary alcohol. Use circular movement. Then, gently shine the lens with dry cotton. DO NOT PRESS THE LENS !!!! If the issue persists, it's more complicated. You need to have access to the tiny trimmer below or near the laser head. Using a plastic screwdriver, rotate the trimmer clockwise about 2-3 degrees. Test playing. If track doesn't skip, hit the CD player's case with the finger, to check if track skips because of shock. If skips, rotate trimmer again 1-2 degr. Check again. If it doesn't work, try rotating counterclockwise. You need patience. Hope it is useful.

Cdp-ce315 skips in songs


My answer here only concerns if you're trying to play burned audio CDs. Burn your audio CDs at the lowest speed (1). Try the JVC/Taiyo Yuden brand.

My Sony CDP-XA7ES CD Player can play only up to 6 to 9 tracks depending on the length of the tracks n then stops.


replace the spindle motor. the motor's speed varies while playing cds and a worn motor will not keep to the correct speed for playback of certain tracks on various points of the disc and will cause skipping and even stop altogether.

hope this helps.

Cds dont load and tracks will skip during song play


It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.
Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player.
I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model.
Thanks.

Cd's always skip


You have done well for 10 years laser changes are in order

When a cd skips it is due to laser diode becoming weak over time not producing an original beam causing focus prolbems ,hence skipping discs
