Question about Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

Buttons and remote

If I leave the unit pugged in, it will come on by itself and go through random plays, pauses, etc., or just stay on and do nothing. Power and other buttons won't respond, and neither will the remote. These also work at random times, but only temporarily.

    Use a surge protection power strip (such as the Power Protect AV 600 by Monster Power).



    This will elliminate erratic behaviour of the unit, since even minute fluctuations in the power source from unbridled house current will affect the sensitive internal components of the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer.



    After doing this myself, the unit behaves perfectly as it's made to.

Power and other buttons won't respond, and neither will the remote. These also work at random times, but only temporarily. I tried the recommended solution, as it is already plugged into a power strip, still no luck. The red light for the stand by is still on but I can not get the unit to turn on with the power button or remote.

My CDC-655 works beautifully, but suddenly has stopped responding to the "Random" button on the remote. It will play tracks on the currently-playing CD randomly, but does not go randomly from one dis


CLEAN CONTACTS ON CIRCUIT BOARD BY CLEANING THEN WITH A PENCIL ERASER. SOME TIMES CONTACT SOLUTION ON BOTTOM OF THE BUTTON WEARS OFF. I BEEN NOTED TO USE NICKLE PRINT ON BOTTOM OF THE RUBBER BUTTON TO REPAIR WARN CONTACTS . PLEASE MAKE SURE NICKLE PRINT COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE PUTTING REMOTE BACK TOGETHER.

Player continues to play while in pause-mode


This is a job for a Technician of that brand. The unit is not knowing the pause mode is activated so there may be a bad cable or solder joint linking a mechanical IC to that of the main processor.

My wurlitzer play only 22 cd 's


It has probably been programmed to only play 22 cd's. The unit can be set to play random cd's, but if the original owner only had 22 cd's then he probably programmed it to only see the 22 cd's. If he didn't program it to only see 22 cd's, then it would randomly select cd 23, and since there was nothing there, it wouldn't play anything. If you have a manual, it tells you on page 23, service level 1, button 5 how to program for more or less cd's. If you don't have a manual, you can download one from a couple of sites, I just googled it, and found a complete manual from a Wurlitzer site in the US, don't remember which one. Here is another site with lots of good info http://www.flippers.com/wurlitzr.html

HOW DO I MAKE THE CD'S PLAY RANDOMLY WITH THE YAMAHA CDC 685 MODEL


shotgirl232,
Setting your model to play in random mode is easy just nothing you would think to press on the remote. The remote is required to do so on your model. Use the link below to access to instructions:

Converting Audio Cassettes to CDs


First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here
http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf

Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved.
Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs.
Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder.
The physical setup is now complete.
The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.

the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.

Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD.
follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings.
Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.

Good luck


here's a snippet

To record from an external source:
1. Turn power ON.
2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up
in TRAY II.
3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display
will show BLANK.)
4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected.
DIGITAL OPTICAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal.
DIGITAL COAXIAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal.
ANALOG:
record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks.
5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number
assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the
ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information).
6. Press the RECORD button.
The unit enters record pause mode.
The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display.
7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording.
8. Play the source to be recorded.
• During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds,
recording will stop.
• During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds,
recording will stop.
• If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording,
CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped.
To stop recording: Press the STOP [] button
To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button.
Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped,
a new track number will be assigned.

Pioneer elite pd-f27 300+1 cd changer


I've owned two of these players, one currently, and both exhibit this behavior. Although frustrating, it seems to be inherent in the vertical loading mechanism. Every finicky CD I pull out of the PD-F27 plays perfectly in my single-loading tray player, including CD-Rs. One would expect more of an "Elite" product, but there you are.

Tuning DAB radio


Just bought the same unit but the instruction manual was double dutch. After messing around for a while I managed to do it like this. Whe the unit is set to DAB, Press the Sel+/TU+ or the Sel-/TU- button on the unit (not the remote) until the DAB station displays and then press the Select CH+ button again on the unit. Wait a few seconds while the word "tuning" is displayed and that station should now play. To save the station as a preset do this. When the station is playing use the remote and press the PRG/MEM button once. Then press the number for which preset you want that station to be. The station will be saved. EG to save Radio 1 as Preset station 1, play Radio 1, Press PRG/MEM, then press number 1. After that whenever you press number 1 on the remote Radio 1 will play. Do the same with any other station you wish to save. To save station 10 press the 0/10 button on the remote. To save station 11 press 10+ then 1, 12 is 10+ the 2 etc. Good luck Dopeyemma
