Question about Teac DC-D2831 CD Shelf System

4 Answers

I have a TEAC Stereo DC-D2831. The power button stays in the "on" position. The CD deck drops down after loading cds to play. Can't get them out, or even turn them around to play others.

    Pulling the electric cord did not work - the power button is still stuck in the on position.

  • labcerb Jul 24, 2008

    No, it didn't work. I did manage to get the front cover off, but the inside is all circuit boards and wires.



    There is no way that I can get to the power button at all.

This particular stereo is obsolete, so finding a repair man may be hard to do. If you can find one, it may cost you more than what it's worth to have it fixed, especially since this machine sold for less than $100 new. It might be time for a new stereo.

2 possible reasons:

the switch contact may have some corrosion that the switch is left ON, if you can open the front end of the stereo, try to clean up the contact using a common eraser

if the switch uses a spring to engage and disengage the contact, the spring may be broken and needs replacement, or a part of the button lock is stuck, TLC may work for it too.

good luck

    labcerb, good job to get the cover off, since you see all circuit boards, that would mean your power button is not mechanicalso just try to check the contact (like the controller of a ps2) and clean it up with some lighter fluid (since it quickly dries up, then gently rub the surface of the board where the contact hits with a regular pencil eraser.

    good luck

I have a TEAC W-450R Stereo Double Reverse Cassette Deck. For some reason, the REC/PLAY II side will not operate. It has not for some time. In fact, that is why I believe I mothballed it some years ago....


I have not seen those to a large extent due to their value not being worth a repair. I did work on them at Teac though. The capstan motor of the right side deck sound like it is burned out. I have some motors here so it is just a matter of if you want me to work on it or not. I get a lot of units in all the time- I am Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area.

My mothers Teac DC-2831 skips when playing cds. We have used cd cleaning disc, and even compressed air. Nothing! What can we do? If we have to take it to a repair shop, can you give us one in the Los...


My DC-2831 started doing the same thing -- and continued, despite repeated cleaning with a CD-player cleaning disc. Oddly, older CDs would play OK, but brand new ones -- commercial CDs, not homemade -- would promptly begin skipping or lock out altogether. Solution?

Unplug the system, lock the turntable stylus arm into place with the attached C-clamp, then carefully unscrew the back and side panels. Once the innards are exposed, gently lift out the CD-player and visually inspect it for hidden dust, pet dander, even fur can get inside there and gum up the works, and that's something NO CD-cleaning kit can ever reach.

Once you've inspected and cleaned the CD-player of all visible dust and dirt, carefully replace the player, make sure it's seated properly within the shell, then reattach the side and back panels in the exact reverse order as you removed them. THIS IS CRUCIAL: if you don't put the stereo back together in the exact reverse of how you took it apart, you'll have components off-kilter, screws that won't go back in (and leftover screws are a sure sign you're screwed it up!) and your CD-player will be even more temperamental than ever. Word to the wise.

If all this sounds too scary, then you'll have to either live with the crappy CD-playing performance, or get a new system. You can't replace the CD-player unless you buy an entire new system. WARNING: these all-in-one turntable systems are VERY RARE anymore, so don't get mad and kick your TEAC or toss it out or give it away on a whim. You'll play hell trying to find a replacement.

Hope this helps!
