Denon UD-M3 CD Receiver CD playing

The unit will not play a CD in the normal horizontal position. If the front is raised so that it is tilted at about 20 degrees to the horizontal then it works perfectly. Is there a simple solution to the problem?

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

Cd stuck in Denon CD auto changer receiver. Displays ERR. How can I get out?


As there may be other factors at play that require a more detailed explanation, I would suggest that you seek a resolution through a discussion with a qualified technician. To do this, refer to your operating manual, which should provide a telephone number for technical contact assistance. You can also go up to the manufacturer's website and make contact for advice. www.denon.com/

I would replace the audio cable from the CD player to the Denon amp, a long shot, if you have other devices hooked to the amp and plays fine, the problem will be in the CD player. However! if all sound sources have the same problem, the issue is with the Denon unit.

Are you trying to kill it? A device has only so many emergency shut-offs it can withstand.

How are the spaces around the top, underside and back for ventilation?

0 dB isn't normally 'normal' volume.

I wonder if the fan is a self-defeating work-around because the noise might make you want to crank it up so higher so you can hear it.

Apple TV? Is it a dynamically-compressed audio signal? That would raise the average volume.

CD DRAWER DOESNT OPEN


Is there a small hole on the front of the load tray? If there is use a straightened out paperclip to push into the hole to remove the stuck cd. That might help you out.

Denon UD M31 CD not playing


It is possible that the laser has gone, the part you require is:

Sanyo SF-P101N CD Mechanism - 16 pins (there are 15 pin versions available which have the same product number, the two versions are incompatible)

i have found the part on Ebay (UK) for less than £5, the shop that sells it also suggest replacing the flexible strip that connects that mechanism to the circuit board, the strip costs £2 and replacing it would seem to be a very sensible idea seeing as you have to completely strip the unit to replace the mechanism.

My UD-M31 is in bits on my work bench at present, awaiting the arrival of a new mechanism, i'll post again if replacing it solves the problem.

The tact switch behind the panel is being pushed in by a defective front panel button, the small switch is bad behind the button, or the volume control IC is bad. Good Luck
