Question about Hitachi HTD-K170 System

2 Answers

AX-M140 problems, problems

My system seems to constantly have issues. It times out and won't allow you to replay a disk after a while without turning the device off (at the mains) and back on again. It doesn't like copying from disks very much, several attempts at doing that have failed, but the worst is that if you play back from the hard disk it hangs once it has played the last track.

Yep, I know I should have taken it back but this is our third hi-fi purchase, I really just want it to work properly. I suspected it needed a firmware update but have no idea how to get one. Hitachi site wholly unhelpful.

    Yep. I have the same, hangs up after the last track has been played. But it gets even worse. After getting the message "No Disc" the machine was returned to Currys, still under guarantee, and was returned after replacing the drive system. One month later in DVD mode, the "No Disc" comes back up, and guess what? Now out of guarantee!!! Looks like i have bought a pup.

Open the dvd case ,6 screws.
remove the bar which holds the cd on to the spinning middle piece it is secured with two screws, the cds will rumble a little until playing but will work.

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?

If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.

Failure to detect dvd/cd. 'no disc' appears. Radio+ aux still ok.

You are having the issue with the tray with the lense problem thats why you are getting the " NO DISK" error, so you need to replace the entire kit that is tray with motor lense.

DVD HO1 error, and tray is jammed - how do i change the mode to External Port (iPod)?

It means that there's a misaligned disk inside. You need to

1. Unplug it and shake it side-to-side.
2. Then turn it on and press the open/close.
3. If it doesn't open, goto step 1.
4. When it opens, get the disks out, use disk exchange to try to get them all out.
5. Turn it off, unplug it, shake it again and make sure that there isn't another loose disk, if there is, then open it and get it out.

This is a known flaw in certain Panasonic DVD changers. Good luck

Use a computer to rip your CD's Then copy them to a memory stick. Then you can plug the memory stick in and copy the files to the hard drive that way. Each files takes about 5-10 seconds. Hope that helps

Problem with sound skiping on Bose Lifestyle 8

would not exactly agree with bose proposed solution, however easy to test......

borrow a dvd palyer of a different model and type , ensure that the output from the dvd player is set correctly ie. 5.1

you need to verify that the co ax you are useing is not damaged, faulty and is connected both ends correctly,

if bose give you some hassle get a spare set of cable to be sure the connect or to the co- ax is not damaged in any way.

lastly :
i suggest there is a problem with the on board decode for dolby 5.1, known as SPDIF = "S P diff " ( a system designed in conjunction with SONY and PHILIPS and used on nearly every 5.1 decoder sold in the world) easy to fix its usually a firmware upgarde or reset usually done in the factory, simple problem, could have been caused by electrical interference or unusual magnetisim problem post manufacturing or possible on site problem, however from your point of view impossible to prove either way.

must point out that analog cables don't carry a 5.1 signal. and also should point out that co -ax is not 100% necessary nor the only way to push a 5.1 signal into that bassbox.

check your cables first , then borrow a dvd player, then bring it back to bose and tell them to fix it. if its still wrong.
