Question about Zenith Z228T Clock Radio

Open Question

The cd player "mechanism" (I can see it through the windw on top) starts to spin then stops, jerks along a few seconds and stops. It is not making contact with disc. It had and then on next try stopped... this is Zenith Z228T cd player, radio and clock radio. I have taken the "disc reader" disc??? not sure if this is what it is called... and removed it and tried to put it back.. nothing changes... that piece just kind of dangles. Does not look right..

Describe your problem: Depress MONTH/DATE and ALARM1 for 3 seconds and display will show DST 'start' month,week,and date.
Display will show 4F 4.1, alternately flashing

4F = April First week. 4.1 = April 1.That is the old dates for change. What we want to do is to change to the new dates. Once it is done, it will change in the new dates as it did on the
old dates..

Hold down the MONTH/DATE button for 5 seconds, and while pressing the - or down button3 times, until the display shows '3'F2.
3 is month F2 is the week.
=March 2nd week.
You have successfully change the March changeover.

Now for the November change.
Depress and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM2 after 3 second the display will show DST 'end' month,week, and date.
First digit will be 10 =month. second digit will be L=Last week, and date, will flash alternately.
While holding down the MONTH/DATE press the + or UP button once the display will show 11 (November) and F (first week) and 1 as date alternately flashing.
You have successfully set it for the next 100 years

Is having trouble reading or tracking disc.I opened top and while playing disc the tracking mechanism goes out then back in and starts playing where it stopped?


You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

hi there,

make sure that the program is not on the "Intermittent Agitate Program". that would be the cause of the delay.

the other issue would be the timer itself. the timer is mechanical, so once the contact on it is corroded, it will only function intermitently or not at all.

please let me know if i can be of more help.

thanks

CD Player stops in middle of songs


sounds like the stop button is getting a crossover signal

the CD player ALWAYS has vibration... (impossible to make a perfect balanced spinning mechanism...) and this could allow a slight vibration to affect the machine... age making it more prominent and thus the delay in occurance

but more likely the Capacitor has gone bad (13 years is a very good life for the small charge holders) allowing the voltage to go where it isn't supposed to go

assuming you are a DIY guy then trace the path for the stop button and check the capacitors and resistors in the area

usually a connection is make or break but it could have a signal pull resistor with a capacitor to stop direct current.. if so, that is the first capacitor to check... also good news in this case... the capacitor that fits with a pull up/down switch isn't very critical in it's specs so a close match should be fine
