Question about Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

My DX-C211 6 disc changer will not play as the discs are slipping on the spindle. In operation the motor lifts up collects the disc and engages with the small balancing plate above it. The motor turns but the disc does not. On intermittent occassions the disc will play , the full disc and then refuses on the next disc. What can be causing the slippage?

The slippage is cause by the disc not being press firmly when it plays.
I would suggest to cut a small peace of rubber with a 0.5 mm thickness and apply it to the plastic that holds the CD. If that did not work, try with a 1mm thickness. After the CDs play normally you can add glue for a permanent fix.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

    You can also try to move up the plastic CD holder for about 0.5mm and see if it plays.

Rubber belts might need to be replace since it not fully grabbing gears to access disc function. Is it still within warranty? have it check cause mechanism are a bit complicated, cant really suggest that you dismantle it.

It sounds like the disc isn't getting pushed down to below the little springs on the spindle, can you see the disc spinning at all, I would have a look at the tiny springs and try placing a disc on it by hand and see if there are any problems trying to lock it in place. you will have to take the cover off in order to get at this. Be careful not to touch metal components.

Also does it make any sound while the disc is slipping


thanks

This is usually cased because the unit is sensing that your spindle motor is not turning or turning at a slower speed then normal. "The spindle motor is the motor that spins the disc. This is the most common problem found in DVD and CD players.

The large changers after a few years start to show ware and tare, the gears become worn and because you are dealing with plastic makes them all most impossible to repair. So to answer your question, easier to replace the device.

Our sony hcd-hpz9 stereo will not allow the 5 disc changer to open. It will play disc 1 only. Any suggestions. It makes a rumbling noise. Is there a way to manually open the disc changer?


this is done by a belt drive. i have seen the belts get old and slip. try to gently pull the door open as you hit eject. If you get it to open and find that it will not fully open or close without assistance this is the problem.

I have a tascam CC 222 cassette compact disk player. sometimes I get a disk error message and cannot even play a compact disk. I there a reset or some other way to avoid this problem


Hi James

It is probably an optics problem causing you symptom. Does the machine consistanly not play the any discs, or just particular discs. Either the lens is dirty, or you have an failure occurring in the optic block. CD lens cleaner discs are generally a waste of time, so I would suggest that you remove the lid, and clean the laser lens. with a cotton bud moistened with windex, then gently polish off with a dry one to be sure no smears are left behind. See how this goes. The other common problem with not playing discs is a lazy spindle motor, identified by the disc atempting to spin, but not getting up to speed. Try cleaning the lens first, and let me know if you still have problems.

Kenwood RXD25 CD player intermitent??


Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further

Cd player fault quick fix any one?


You can do a few things to see what may happen.
  1. Check the spindle height. The platters sometimes slip down the shaft, or the spindle motor bearing drops and the platter gets closer to the lens.
  2. check that the spindle motor has not become lazy and "poling". give it a few spins. then try to read a disc again.
  3. Clean the laser lens with a cotton wool bud moist with windex glass cleaner. Then "polish the lens with a dry one.
  4. the spindle motor top bearing is worn and the payer mistracks as the armature moves about under the changing drive conditions. Makes the player mistrack and skip. More likely to happen at the start of a disc, because the disc is spinning fastest whilst reading the TOC.
A drop of light machine oil from a syringe oiler can help the bearing to spin an not produce the knock. Only a short term fix to give the motor a "lube". Once the oil leaches out of the worn bearing the problem will return. I have run motors immersed in an oil bath to rejuvenate them before... but better to replace it anyway if its suss at all. Good luck, You could bump my profile by giving me a "FixYa" rating for my sharing my "knowhow". Any problems check back with me here.

regards
Graeme.
