Question about RCA RP7986 CD Player

RCA CD Portable Model #RP-7986

I have an old, small boombox that can play the radio, a CD or a tape. It worked yesterday, and today, I plugged it into the wall, and all I get is one popping noise. I really like this little machine and not ready to give up on it. (I don't want to contribute to the landfill anymore then I have to.)

Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Thank you in advance.

It finally died. Happens. Too expensive to have fixed and time to go shopping.

SOURCE: How to get in to clean the lens for RP-9316 Boombox

I had the same issue. Over time, the cd player quit palying at all. The unit would try to read the cd but couldn't and then skip to the next cd.
- I took fairlane's advice and put a cd in and listened for the ticking sound to indicate that the laser was trying to read the cd. I also looked inside through the top "vent" area to be sure the cd was actually spinning. It was spinning and I heard what I thought I was "ticking" sound so I guessed that the laser needed to be cleaned.
- I took off the 6 side panel screws on the right side of the entire unit and loosened the screw on the backside off the unit about halfway down from the top that also held the side panel on.
- I then removed the side panel.
- I then removed the 2 screws on the top side of the other side panel and the screw in the top center back of the top panel and was able to remove the top cover that is over the unit. The top cover is "pressure fitted" in so be careful as you try to remove it, using a little wiggle at a time, but it does comes off.
- Once you have the top off, there is a screw in the center of the plate that holds the tray for the cd's. Remove the screw and you will able to lift and spin the tray to have clear access to the laser
that needs to be cleaned. (Note the position of the numbers on the tray so you put it back the right way.)
- The laser is a little "glassy" looking thing about the size of the head of the q-tip.
- I used the q-tip with 70% isopropol alcohol and rubbed it over and around the laser as best I could. I repeated the procedure 2-3 times and the used compressed air to dry it off.
- I put everything back in place in the reverse order I took it off, based on what's in the above steps.
- Remember, the top will fit in with pressure so don't get anxious as you try to get it in the right position.
The cd's actually play again.
I hope this will help someone.

RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

Depending on where you live, you can find them at Radio Shack, Walmart, most discount electronics parts stores,etc.They are universal except for the physical plug style at the unit side. Best bet is to take the unit with you if possible for a perfect match. Hope this helps

I have an rca portable radio tape and cd player RCD175, and it plays good, but wont play cassette tapes. I put the tape in and press pas and the play button wont stay pressed in. What causes that?


Hello
It is due the mechanism trouble to your set. The casette tape deck mechanism should be troubleshooted. It is a skilled work. Just contact any experienced service technician to make this set right.

How do I get it to record a voice?


Many portable 'boombox' recorders do not include a microphone for recording ambient sound, but can only record from one internal source to another, like radio or CD to Cassettte. Some do include an input jack for microphones or other audio sources, but you'll need to check your device's specs/ports to be sure.

I have a Sony CFD 5250 Radio Cassette-Corder. Can I play music from an I-Pod through it? I cannot find the manual. Can I access a manual online?


The answer is yes, but the ease of doing so will vary. If the unit has an auxiliary input all you will need is a 3.5 millimeter to stereo RCA plug adapter. If it does not have an aux in then it gets more complicated, but it can be done. Do a little digging on the internet for an old cassette adapter. These were used in years gone by to allow the playing of a portable CD player through a cassette deck. The adapter looks just like a cassette, but it has a wire coming off of it with a 3.5 millimeter plug on the end. It will allow you play the I-Pod through the cassette deck just like a portable CD player.
