No worries mate... firstly, remeber that mains voltages can kill and you should always disconnect the unit from the power before taking the covers of and work safe.
What we plan to do is to

  1. Clean dried grease from the worm drive gear that move the laser optics back and forth.
  2. Clean the laser lens
  3. lube the spindle motor bearings
You will need

cotton buds
methylated spirits
light oil
fine sewing needle

Using a cotton bud moistened with metho, clean the the old dried grease of the worm drive gear. Removing the laser transport from the unit is often the best way to do this. Be sure to not touch any of the connections to the laser itself if you unplug it from the main board. They are very electrostatic sensitive, and can be damaged by the static charge on your person. Be meticulous to clean it well. I use light oil(sewing machine) or if you have it, some graphite grease to then relube it. Apply a drop of oil to the top bearing of the spindle motor (use a fine needle with the oil in the eye to get under the platter to do this. Clean the laser lens with a moistened cotton bud and then polish with a dry one to be sure there is no residue.

Reassemble the unit and see how it goes. If you have any more dramas, a replacement laser assembly can be got and basically plugged into these units with no extra setup. I reccomend using a marantz original if you can . It is described as a cdm12.1 transport. Let me know how you go.

Onkyo cd changer skips when volume is increased


Try to move the cd changer away from the speakers. Any strong vibrations transferred to the cd changer from the speakers may cause this kind of problems.

Pioneer CD deck Receiver XR P250. Neither of the two tapes work. They dont go round.


Hi John

This is something I can tell you that you can sort out yourself with a little bit of mechanical aptitude and a couple of screwdrivers.

FIRST turn the power off to the unit.

If you pop the lid off the unit, you will see that the capstan drive belts to the tape decks mechanism have failed, Either turned to back muck like windscreen sealant, or just broken and dropped off. The belts (each deck has one) will need to be replaced. The part number for the belt(according to my records) is REB1272 You should still be able to get them from Pioneer spares directly in your country. Let me know where you are and I can get some better information to you.
good luck. Happy to assist you further and answer any questions you may have.

I have a Westinghouse tube radio, AM/FM table model, uses a selenium rectifier. I need a schematic for this radio, do not have a model number, but chassis number is 240635. Would appreciate your help.


Hi driggins

Wondering if that may be the serial number that you have quoted. Most Westinghouse radios that I have been able to find are allocated model numbers as WRXXX
If it has a solid state rectifier then it will be post war vintage at least.

Are there any other identifying marks on the radio?

My cd player (model dx-1800) is jammed. When I push eject I can hear the necanism but tray will not open


Hi djhartness

It will have a faulty load belt to the tray assembly. Not hard to replace if this in an Onkyo DX1800. You need to use a belt the same cross section as the one that has failed. If you need any help sourcing the part, just let me know. cheers

Fisher stereo that has no display and the cd player keeps flashing a M-Error


If this is a multi-disc cd player with a carosel that holds lots of disc's the problem with the cd player is a clutch gear that is very difficult to replace unless you have some experience at changing it.

If you think you can replace the gear reply back and I will give you the part number for the clutch gear.

I would need the model number of the unit to be sure it is the same problem I am so familiar with. It would be very dificult to explain thru text messages how to replace this gear, the entire cd mechinism must be taken apart.

The display problem is probably a lamp that is burned out or the voltage supply to the lamp has a defective part.

Once again I would need the model number of the unit to give you any further details.

A repair center could fix this for around $100 to $150 depending on their rates.

If you have no experience repairing electronics it is advisable that you do not attempt this yourself, you could cause more damage to the unit and the repair would cost even more money.

Please let me know if I can be of any further help.

Panasonic SA-PM19 - insert CD and all the machine does is make "clicking" noises then stops and displays NO DISK.


Hi me2you

Your machine is not reading the disc. This can be caused for several reasons. The cd players lens may have a film of dust preventing it from reading. Try a lens cleaner CD. This is about the only thing you can do without getting into the internals of the unit. If you are electronically savvy, I can talk you through some more diagnostics, but generally this will mean replacing parts to fix the unit. If the Lens cleaner does not fix the problem, you may need to take the unit to a Panasonic repair guy for a quote. .

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I have a marantz cd 67 se cd player.it doesn't always play cd's.it appears that it fails to recognise there is a cd in the cd drawer. also when it does actually play it often stops playing part way through...


Hi dr dray
Your player has a CDM12.1 laser transport fitted to it. They suffer a couple of problems that can be fixed that stop em from working so well. If you are handy with a screwdriver, then I can talk you through it.
