Question about Denon DN-961FA CD Player

Open Question

Denon DN-961FA I do a lot of repair at Denon CD players, but this one is new to me. After changing the laserunit (KSS-240A, original Sony) the cd-player will not play any cd's. Placing the old laser (also KSS-240A) back in the unit works but sometimes skips some tracks. Anyone?

    OOPS read your first post , didnt realize it was related to this one too.



    How does the eye pattern look?.



    Tee other question is where did you get the laser...Denon or aftermarket?



    Most of the "Aftermarket" lasers are very poor quality but have the real numbers on them.



    How is your physical allignment? Tangental allignment is OK ?



    Shout me back...Rob

SOURCE: New laserunit won't work

You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.

Denon DN-C635 CD Player problem.


In working with consumer electronics a lot of years, the pickup, mechanism or CD section is not always at fault but people that
are trying to work on their own equipment make assumptions that may not be correct. If you put in a new CD player then the other issues as with all wave soldered equipment can be bad solder joints and even bad solder at joints where the connectors are as these get a lot of activity in a repair. Look at the PCB well. I have fixed a lot of equipment by resoldering bad or broken joints. Check around power transistors and those larger drive transistors for these broken joints.

Sony es cd player skips


you didn't say which "ES" model of player it is but i assume it has the KSS-240A laser pick-up, or something very similar. i've repaired so many sony cd players i've lost count and 90% of them have been down to the same fault you describe.given the age of the player the most common cause of skipping is hardened grease on the laser sled and the drive gears which causes resistance in laser movement hence the skipping. try clean as much of the old grease off the sled & drive gears as possible and relubricate. i've used a drop of light machine oil in the absence of a light grease which has made lasting repairs. but run only a small drop along the sled taking care not to drop any on the laser itself. if of course you have any light grease then i would use this but not too much. hope this helps?

Denon UD-M3 CD Receiver CD playing


Sounds like your spindle motor is shot. What happens is, the bushings in the motor that turns the CD disk are worn. So tilting the unit will change the loading of the motor shaft to an " un-worn" spot on the bushings and the CD plays properly. The spindle motors are chepa for the most part, but the labour might bite you a little because it is a fairly involved job. If the unit is still under warranty....great...if it is just off warranty, you may get some good will service from Denon......best of luck...Rob

Does not recognise disc


Try to change the laser unitKSS-240A (opticals). In most cases problem solved. The "zik-zik" sound is made by the motors in the unit as the laser tries to read the CD.
Caution, after installing the new laserunit remove the short circuits on the laserunit itself. This it put there just to protect the laser from static energie faulure during repair.
