SOURCE: static while adjusting volume on

If the volume is controlled with a mechanical volume control, usually a knob you turn or a slider you move, the problem is the volume control device (potentiameter) needs to be cleaned. That requires special cleaning chemicals most people do not have in their home. You would need to take it in to be serviced. This is a very inexpensive repair. Normally only costing about $50 to $75.

If it has electronic controlled volume like a button you press then it will still need to be serviced, but this is an unlikely case with static in volume when using the volume control.

If I can be more help let me know.

It's a safety feature of your receiver. It will go into standby when you turn it up if there is speaker wires touching or a short somewhere in the speaker wire. Or could be a short in one of the drivers (tweeters, mids, bass drivers) voice coils. Firstly check to make sure there are no strands of speaker wire touching each other between positive and negative on speakers and receiver hookups, this is usually the problem

I had a similar problem. I called campbridge soundworks and they told me to unplug the unit overnight-and then when I powered it back on to press the power on key 10 times. IT works then.

SOURCE: Dim display on Cambridge Soundworks 88CD

I can't find a manual for this but my guess would be there is a setting for the Display to dim it at all times unless you touch a control.

Cambridge soundworks radio 730 display and or controls lock up


I recently posted a problem with a cambridge soundworks 730 which had a display problem with unreadable characters and/ or ALL of the controls would lock up after being on for 1-2 hours and could be fixed temporarily by unpluging and then pluging back in Luckily I was able to find another display board and that took care of the problem and eliminated the tuner board and the power supply board in the back as possibilities. there are several chips on this board so a service manual would be necessary to pinpoint this particular problem or a replacement board from the manufacturer OR buy a broken one on ebay that does not have the same symptoms and make one good one out of two and you will also have extra parts.BE CAREFUL WITH THE RIBBON CABLE WHEN YOU REATTACH IT TO THE DISPLAY BOARD its a little tight and must be pushed back in evenly.It might be easier to take the whole radio apart and disconnect it from the tuner board which is a straight run whereas on the display board end its at an awkward angle

How do i replace burned out lightbulb in my in my cambridge soundworks cd - 740 clock radio ?


I believe the problem is either a faulty light sensor the unit has to dim the display when the lights dim since it was designed for bedroom use with alrms and snooze button. or it is simply a failure in the circuit that drives the LCDs. Mine has been dim for a long time but I can still see just enough to adjust the sound settings. I tune and set stations by sound. so the display has not been an issue since we do not use it for a clock or alarm. I doubt there is a fix for the dim display.

Cambridge soundworks 740 display too dim


Mine is dim also. Apparently sending it in for repair is not an option.

My Cambridge SoundWorks 88CD is not working...no display, no sound, the CD doesn't spin. Any hints? Thank you.


A couple of possibilities- If there is no fuse holder on the rear of the box, it may not be user-replaceable but soldered onto an internal board. If it has blown, either there has been a component failure in the power supply that caused the fuse to fail or the supply is not starting up as it should, a problem caused by cheap capacitors in certain areas of the supply. Unless you have at least a multimeter, this is not a good choice as a DIY repair.

I just had the same problem and called tech support (800) FOR HIFI at Cambridge Soundworks for help. All you have to do is unplug the radio for 30 minutes and then reconnect - kind of like rebooting a computer.
