Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I've got a Philips AK730/10 disc changer that plays for about 10 seconds and then it sounds like the cd is scratched or slipping. Do it with all cd's. What do you think it is, and is parts still available.

Hi,

This seems to be a problem with lens. Either you could go ahead and run a lens cleaner CD or you could open the player and clean the lens with a clean cotton. There is no point of sending the unit for repair or even DIY. The cost of the lens and time taken for the complete repair is not worth the money you would spend.The cost of DIY is still expensive as compared to the cost of the complete machine.Moreover, you need to search for the lens for this model which could take days or even weeks, or you might have to buy an aftermarket lens which never guarantee the lifetime.

If you still wanted to repair, revert and i could tell you a generic procedure to change the lens.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

CD changer!! I have CD disc's in there and know it wont play them, its says disc error after awhile after I try to play all discs.


If one of the discs slipped off its tray and got jammed, you will have to take the cd changer out of the car and dislodge the jammed cd.
I had this happen a few years back and the guys at the auto parts store helped me remove it for free.

Won't play recorded cd's


Try a different brand of recordable CD. Some players are sensitive to the color of the disc itself. This is usually only with older players, but I have seen this as a problem in the past.

Play like cd is scratched


Probably there is dirt on your player head.Clean it with a soft cloth or with a CD cleaner. Clean the the CD before playing it. If it still does not play well then you have to change the player head

5 disc cd changer CC4000 will not read


All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

Won't play


Only one of two things. either a bad cartridge or your transport has given up. Slide open the cartridge door and look for a small inset dimple below the cartridge, it's a reset. push it with a ball point pen and hold for 3 seconds, the unit will reset. if you have another cartridge try it, if not, go to any car audio dealer that sells sony and see if you can try one of theirs to try. Also, these units are notorious for scratching CD's. If you have had the same discs in there for a while pull them out and observe the scratches in the discs. You can improve their ability to be played by using liquid car wax on the disc itself (just a dab is all it takes) and wipe clean with a microfiber towel. Hope this helps. If not, it needs to be serviced by a Sony service ctr. They will put a new transport in it. $100-$150 repair.

Scratched cds


anything can be repaired . with enough money and time anyways..
I don't understand why the discs would be getting scratched though.... the only thing that touches the readable surface is a laser.
Maybe the unit is just dirty. Call a local repair shop and ask how much to clean it up... I had a CD jukebox with a 600 disc changer cleaned for under $100 not long ago.

Stops playing afther 1 minuit 40 seconds,saying no disc


It sounds like the disc drive is bad or corrupted. Usually in DVD-CD units if they stop playing it is a bad motor unit on the player.

You said you cleaned the player but did you clean the disc? Any scratches, dirt debris? To clean the disc you can but special cleaning soultions at various retailers. Have you tried playing diffrent discs, that will help rule out if it's the player or disc.

You need a new laser in it. Lasers for most philips and sonys are about $40 if you fit them yourself.

Intermitent audio


I had that happen before, one problem was my car had bad shocks or i hit a pothole in the road. The second time i had the volume up so loud the bass wass thumping the floor and it skips the CD. My question is, how lowd is the thign turned up? :P Some CD players load the data into a memory and then it plays from the memory till it needs more info. It maybe that the unit is not stable or the CD is not balanced right so it cant read the info at a consistant speed. The music maybe playing faster then it can read because of the vibrations. Is the disk clean? i know this may sound dumb but it is easy to over look. If the surface of the data side is so scratched up it may have problems reading the data quickly enough. Sometimes the coating can fall of the disk if you hold it in the light you can sometimes see spots threw the disk where the foil has been chipped off. The CD player could have a focus problem also, it could be damaged in shipping or have been dropped and it cant focus properly on the data. Do you have any other disks to try? a new one? one you never play?
