Skipping can be the loss of tracking information or a bad motor. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, look at the rails that the optics ride on. clean those using a dry cotton swab. There should be small gears close by that move the optics along the rails. Make sure that the teeth are clear.

The Bose Wave System was very expensive, and should be at least checked with someone that can give an honest assessment. It is possible the Laser Pickup Assembly may need a good cleaning, if it works you can enjoy more time with it. If it fails then it is a matter of choice.

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is


At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.

maybe the laser has dust on it. If anything open it up and gently clean the laser with a Q-tip. You also can lubricate the laser slide poles with "Lubriplate" cream. This may stop the skipping. I love mine too but it died last night after 10 years.

Won't read discs


It is likely that the laser head is very dirty, you could try a cleaning disc to see if that helps the situation at all.

Have a Denon DCD-520 and it skips forward and back while playing


Hopefully, it may just need cleaning and lube.

I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.

Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.

Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.

Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.

Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.

Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.

Disc indicates "disc full" after only a couple minutes of recordi


Brand of disk or bad laser alignment can cause this. if you have changed brands of disks go back to the others and if you have not then laser alignment is the most likely cause and can be fixed by a certified technician in this field.

Cd rewritable player recorder tascam cdrw4u


I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.

Recording Errors


Hi. I did a google search to see how to fix mine. It's doing the same exact thing. I wonder if the CD's are the problem. I hadnt'had problems in the past, but I'm thinking maybe the companies are making their cds's a little different with the speed. I use the audio cdr's but I have had this problem.
