Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Pioneer CLD J420 and after 11 years of service, the tray fails to extend when I push either the LD or the CD button. The display lights up when switched on and the the laser arm moves inside. The display changes to say No CD. Is this worth repairing? If so, please recommend somewhere in West London that can do this. If not, is there a compatable model, i.e. a newer version of the LD / CD player that I should look at.
This is all new to me so thanks for any advice...
Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck

I have the same problem with my XV-DV333. Search on inet and this came up: "... Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. What do I do? You need to get a Pioneer Service Remote. When you have it you should press: [ESC] [A.MON] [Numbers], where [Numbers] correspond to the region number you want to set. Be aware that you can only set this once, if you set the wrong region number for your area, there is no turning back. " WTF! Am I supposed to get a service remote to get this thing working again. I haven't done anything and it worked before:/

Be sure NOT to load any CD+ -R,CD+-RW or DVD+-R,DVD+-RW to this unit.
Try to load up a standard CD see if there is audio first. If so,try a good(not scratches) dvd movie.If you have tried both and still not working.You need this unit to be repair or buy a new one!

A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.

If the laser diode inside the optical pickup is dead or weak it will do exactly as you have described. It is a very common problem with cd and dvd players.
Things You’ll Need:
Clean the exterior of your karaoke machine regularly. Use a soft clean cloth to wipe down the karaoke machine housing. You can use warm water to help clean the unit, but it should be applied to the cloth, not the machine casing.
Avoid using cleaning solvents to maintain the karaoke machine. These can tarnish the surface of the machine. Solvents can also affect how the machine functions if they get inside the housing or into the buttons.
Clean the CD laser lens occasionally. Use a CD lens cleaning disc for the best results. Place the disc into the karaoke machine and run it according to the enclosed instructions.
Try cleaning the CD laser lens manually. Open the CD player and locate the CD laser lens. Wipe it off gently with a clean cotton cloth. Do not use any solvents.
Properly Store Your Karaoke Machine Step 1:
Turn off the power to your karaoke machine after each use. This will help the machine from overheating.
Store your karaoke machine in a cool, dry place. Moist conditions can cause the machine's cabinet to warp and could cause rust on interior electrical components.
Keep your karaoke machine away from direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can warp plastic buttons and screens on your karaoke player.
Consider covering your karaoke machine while not in use. This will help prevent dust from accumulating inside the buttons.
Handle Your Karaoke CDs With Care Step 1:
Store your karaoke CDs in their original cases to reduce the risk of dirt accumulation. Dirty CDs can cause tracking problems when put in your karaoke player.
Keep your karaoke CDs away from direct sunlight. Even while in their cases, CDs can easily warp when exposed to direct sunlight. Warped CDs may get stuck inside the karaoke machine.
Pick up karaoke CDs only by the very edges of the disc. This will help keep the discs free of dirt and fingerprints.
Here are some generic things to try.
