Audiolab 8000CD Player Problem

I have an Audiolab 8000CD player (old version about 10 years old). Yesterday it stopped playing a CD when it was more than haf way through and showed ERROR on the panel. I tried other CDs and these all stopped fairly soon into playing.

It seems like it could be some form of problem with the logic circuit but that's just my guess. Are problems like this easy to have repaired or will it cos more than the player's worth?

    Thanks for both people who tried to help with this problem. Unfortunately, the mechnism is hidden beneath its locating holder and it's impossible to access either the laser of the its slider mechnism. I tried to remove it but met resistance and decided not to risk damaging it. I guess I'll have to take it to a tecnician.

    Audiolab transport just stopped playing in the middle of a cd last night and when you put any cd in it says error. With the casing off the cd does not spin at all when inserted and the laser does not move. With other cd players I have had the unit always spins the cd when the draw shuts and the laser mechanism moves to scan the cd.



    Do I need to send it to the repairers or should I replace the cd mechanism?

This may be a problem with the sled motor. This is the motor that moves the optical assembly in and out along a rail. Try openint up the unit and cleaning off the rail with a dry cotton swab. Be careful not the leave any fibers on the rails. Also, while you are in there, clean the lens using another cotton swab and alcohol. Report back with your results.

Why won't a CD-RW disc play in my car CD player?


Some of the older cd players, car or otherwise, just aren't capable of recognizing CD-RW's. The player in my 10 year old Ford Mondeo doesn't, but the updated model player in the newer Mondeo does play CD-RW's.

CD player will not play burned Cd's anymore after 5 years of work


If it has been playing CD's for over 5 years (really reliable CD player.) then I'd think it's had it's life, it needs to rest now. Meaning it's dead so you either get a replacement or a get a new CD player.

This is what happened to my mum by the way. ;)

Want to play cd on old cd player


If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.
