Question about GPX Audio Players & Recorders
Model CD110A, This player was dropped from a low height and immediately stopped playing. The display shows all the zeros and all the buttons still work fine, CD's start spinning and keep trying to play and you can hear the laser unit trying to work, I have taken it apart and by holding down the lid switch & fooling the system you can see the laser dimly lights up and If manually slid away the laser drives back to the centre postion and rises and falls with clicking sounds as it trys to play a disc. No error codes or messages appear. any suggestions how to repair? could the laser unit need realigning/adjustment? all screws in the area are set with paint or sealing substances. One screw is spring loaded but also fixed very firmly. Any help appreciated, Mogsey
SOURCE: cd player buttons don't work
On almost every port. cd player is a botton lock switch . Some make all the buttons not work and some units only let play work. I suggest you look for this before taking apart as these units have whats called ribbon cable inside them and are very easy to damage them.

It's dead. Mine did the same thing, but I noticed also that the disc never spun up fast enough to be read successfully. I'm guessing that the motor just lost its oomph. I imagine that one way or another it's fixable, but with portables so cheap and a player this old not being able to read anything but manufactured CDs, i.e., no CD-R, CD-RW, etc., it's not worth it. And mine was old enough to vote! :)
