Question about Harman Kardon FL8385 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

The drawer in our Harman-Kardon HD 950 CD player won't go all the way in. It gets to the point where there's about an inch sticking out, then re-opens and tries again. This is a fairly new unit. Is there an easy fix?

It turned out that a CD had slid past the drawer and into the case of the CD player. Once I removed it everything was fine. I should point out that mine is *not* a 5-disc drive, but a single-disc drive, model HD 950.

It's the belt from the spindle motor to the gear. It's worn and can't grip the spindle anymore. If you elp it to start off it works. Open the unit, remove the cd tray and it's underneath at the front. You can replace with a similar size elastic band.

With mine, it was the drive belts for the cd drawers, which were stretched and rigid. Open the case. Remove the 4 screws that hold down each cd drive. Push the drives out enough so you can pull the silver facing off the sliding try by pulling it up. Now you can lift out the cd drives, removing all the connectors as you go. Flip the white plastic slider underneath each drive and you can mechanically open the slide tray. This reveals the little motor and rubber pulley belt that operates the slide tray. If the belts are broken, perished, rigid or something, get something similar from your local electronics parts store (a couple of bucks each belt), and reassemble.

What to do for hkhd 950 no disk


Hi, your harman kardon hd 950 has probably a problem with your optical bloc. You can try to insert a clean-up cd or clean-up directly the laser sense cell but if the problem persist you have to go to a repairshop. But take a look at the price to repair maybe the best is to buy a new player. Sorry for this answer and have a nice day.
