Question about CD Players

Standby won't go off

I have a INSIGNIA home CD player, 5 disc. I can't get it to go off of standby. I've unplugged it and plugged it back in, but standby won't go off. It won't do anything while on standby. It won't even power off. I've changed the batteries on the remote and that doesn't do anything either. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The unit doesn't work any of the time. It's not intermittent. It's just stuck on "standby". Any other ideas? Thanks.

It is a loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of no sound..Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

Sony 5 disc cd player won't play 5 cds but plays just 1 disc


Check the mode of operation. There can be a setting where it just plays one disc. Random or mixed will give you more songs to get to other discs.

If There is no standby light on the unit lit when you apply ac power. chances are the main fuse in the power supply could be open, check with an ohmmeter with power unplugged and see if it reads open. If so, replace.

Why wont my kenwood cd player work ? It wont play open or do anything it wont let me do anything .


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you;

Standby light remains on for Harman Kardon 5 disc CD player


Modern electronics stay in standby mode when you turn them off because certain circuitry must remain powered up to be alert for remote control signals. In essence its always awake looking for the remote to send a signal at which time it will turn on the rest of the circutry and fully power up the unit. It is not a fire hazard and the LED's used now days have lifetimes of several thousand hours. You can plug it into the switched outlet on your reciever if you wanted to. However be sure that you do not exceed the rated wattage for the switched outlets. You can determine this by figuring out the rated wattage for the outlet(s) as it will show this rating near them and it will show the wattage required by your cd player on the back of the unit somewhere near the power cord.
