Question about Kenwood KDC-C465 6-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Changer no longer reads discs

On saturday I changed the 6 CDs in my changer. Up until then it had been working without any problem. It started to play the first disk then stopped and now goes through each disk and ends up saying 'no disk'. All the CDs are genuine and in the correct weay round. I have disconnected the power supply to the unit in the hopes it would reset but no change. Really irritated that if I had left the other CDs in I wouldnt have had the problem

Leaving the other CD's in would not have changed things. This was just a coincidence that it happened then.

You may have a bad laser pick up, that is the most common failure for these when they won't read a disc. You can try running a lens cleaning disc thru it and see if that helps. If it doesn't help, you really need to have it serviced by a professional service center.

The laser pickk up can fail at any given time, it is kinds like a light bulb. Most of the time it works just fine right up until it fails. Nothing you can do about that. Don't blame yourself for changing the magazine. it really had nothing to do with it.

Let me know if you need any more help with this,

Dave

    Good idea, but this is a decent changer, so fixing it may be a reasonable solution. Most service centers offer a free or low cost estimate. That way you can make a more informed desicion if the cleaning disc does not work.



    Good luck, and if you need any further help feel free to ask.

CDs change without playing. Installed new motor and starts to spin and stops, and cycles through the cartridge.


Check to see if the laser lens is still on the laser!
If not see if its in unit and glue back on with radio/tv cement(don't super glue)! If don't work replace the laser.

I have 6 CD Changer in a 2002 SLK 320 with changer full of cd the player reads emty and will not play.


Have you tried putting the CDs in label-side down? My Alpine needs them to be label-side-up, but a friends changer (kenwood? I don't remember) needs them to be label-side-down.

Whichever way you've put them, try flipping the CDs to see if it makes a difference.

The problem normally is to the reading head. You have to open the player find the head and clean it with a cotton stick very gently. Then try to listen a cd. If it works it's ok, or else your head is broken and you have to replace it thing that I am not suggesting because of the high cost of the head.

Discs are skipping in my changer


cds skip irrespective of their positions as the reading lens is the same for all.
you can do the following
1)this seems to be a SERVICING problem with dust playing the spoilsport.
OR
2)buy a new disc (scratchless) , play it in all positions and com pare.

if it skips in all positions, call an electronic engineer who will replace /repair the delay circuit.
