Durabrand model CD-1493

My mother received the Durabrand CD-1493 for Christmas. She has just recently tried the CD player on the unit and it skips. We tried a brand new CD and also older ones and burn copies. It doesn't matter they all skip. We do not have a receipt and the local Wal-Mart where the person said they purchased it does not carry this unit at this time. There is a manufactured date of October 2007 on the unit. Is there anything we can do?

    My durabrand cd-1493 which is less than 5 months old does the same thing. It skips or sounds like it has a lot of static and then will play for a few seconds and does it again. Very annoying. Wal-mart in my area no longer carry this product or model. Where can I get help to solve the problem. The player looks good, but plays crappy. I've tried moving it to another location, different household plugs , tried different cd's , new and old and can't stop the static and skipping. Help

    The cd player worked perfectly fine for about one year. It began skipping occasionally, then consistently. The cds play ok in other devices, i.e., in the car.



    Have tried cleaning the cds, cleaning the optical eye of the cd player, etc., but unit still skips.



    Any ideas?

    Originally, I had the same problem. Then it got worse, and now the CD player won't work at all. Also, I need the instruction book.

Player skip reading the music then come back to start over


Pull the top off the unit and use a can of Dust Off (compressed air) and clean out the inside. Then use a Laser lens cleaner and run it thru the unit once or twice. This is considered normal maintenance on a 300 or 400 disc changer that should be done annually. If it still won't play a disc, replace the unit, the replacement model is around $ 199.00. A repair would easily cost that much. Hope this helps.

Sony es cd player skips


you didn't say which "ES" model of player it is but i assume it has the KSS-240A laser pick-up, or something very similar. i've repaired so many sony cd players i've lost count and 90% of them have been down to the same fault you describe.given the age of the player the most common cause of skipping is hardened grease on the laser sled and the drive gears which causes resistance in laser movement hence the skipping. try clean as much of the old grease off the sled & drive gears as possible and relubricate. i've used a drop of light machine oil in the absence of a light grease which has made lasting repairs. but run only a small drop along the sled taking care not to drop any on the laser itself. if of course you have any light grease then i would use this but not too much. hope this helps?

I received my CD Home Music System for Christmas 2008. I have't had it a two weeks and the remote stopped working. I thought maybe the battery was bad so went and bought a new one and replaces it and it...


Durabrand is kind of a house -brand for Walmart.
I would take it all back and explain the trouble . They'll most likely give you a new one.

My Numark Cdx and Numark Cdn90 are frozen


Hi Mitchdias,
Have you tried downloading the most recent rom update for the CDN-90? All you need to do is download it from here http://www.numark.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1493/tt/5 , then burn the download to disc. Once that's done, put the disc into the player, switch the player off and wait 10 seconds, then switch it back on again. the player will read the disc and flash the ROM. this should reset the player for you. Before you ask, you can out the disc into either side of the player. Full instructions are given with the download.

New laserunit won't work


You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.
