Question about Vestax CDX-05 Turntable

4 Answers

Disc Jumping Hi, We are using 2 CDX-05 players but after 1-2 hours of usage the discs start to jump. When we try it at home no promlem appears. In the club after a couple of hours audio cds and mp3 cds are jumping as well. We tried all kinds of brands of cds, original ones etc, the problem appears. The vibrancy could not be the problem, if I shake the players no jumping. Any suggestions? Regards, Hunor

    Only if I use very scratched or bad quality cd. At the club we have good cds. The only thing that could change bw two inviorments are the humidity and electrical wiring.

    My CDX 05's would do the same thing. Also only a club or party. Mine would also cut out in the middle of a track sometimes and begin at the first track of the cd. Really discouraging. I was thinking humidity or power supply problems or power surges.

    Also one of my platters is sprung. It will spin for a very long time when pushed hard and when speeding up a track with a gentle touch it would come back a little. That one was my fault.

    Can i do anything for then before I sell them?

I used to have the same problem: the rubber feet of the players are too stiff. It is indeed vibration that causes the problem. Btw: after a couple hours in a club, you are usually playing much louder than at home, with more low-end punch.

I haven't had a single problem AFTER systematically setting the players on foam. This is similar to the tennis balls trick for regular turntables, except that here you need something a softer suspension as the players are very light. Shipping foam is good; camping foam mattress works also.

Blagouu, please can you specify what kind of laser you put instead? I have same problem with one of mines, so I'll change lasers.
but you change whole transport with little motor (you just disconnect wires and connect the new part?) or you change only lazer leans witch require more difficult operation?

thank you

That is very strange. So, no issues at all @ home? Only @ work/club?

It will not play Dvd Error message says reject Dvd disc may not be playable type. One DVD began to play but kept jumping. Tried multple Dvd a Few fresh out of box

The device does not play.

Ensure that a supported disc is loaded in the player label-side up.

Ensure that the disc's region code matches the player's region code.

Ensure that the disc's rating level does not exceed the player's.

Ensure that the disc is not damaged or too dirty. Clean the disc or try another disc.

Moisture may have condensed inside the player. Remove the disc and leave the player on for
1-2 hours and then try again.

or lense may be dirty, try using a dvd 'head' cleaner. this may help situation, if continues, may be internal issue and need repair.

I can't play dvds but I can play copied dvds

Most copied DVD-Videos for home playback use a CSS crack to strip the region code i.e. to Region 0 to they will work in all DVD players.

However most standalone DVD Players can have this restriction lifted using a sequence of codes.

First check your current firmware version to see if you need to upgrade:

1. When TV shows Philips wallpaper, close disc tray with no disc.
2. Press <0>, <0>, <0>, <9>, <OK> on the Remote Control.
Note: In case the firmware version does not appear on the screen, eject and close the disc tray to reset, and try again.

In this case region is 2 (UK) and the firmware is “Feb 23 2007” this is the latest for this DVD VR.

There are other codes that can be used to set this DVD to region 0 it might be a good idea for you do to the same with yours.

DVD plays well until it stutters midway thru and

If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).
