Question about Kenwood DVF-3060

1 Answer

I have a Kenwood DVD CD player that all of a sudden stopped working. When you put in a cd the counter seems to go faster than 1 second at a time and the music doesn't play. When playing a DVD it just makes lots of whirling noise and no audio or video. The player is afew years old. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a nasty and possibly costly failure, due in part to a fault in the secondary stage of the switchmode power supply. Being a 'few years old' I doubt in today's market it would be economical to repair at component level, and I doubt replacement boards would be available.

You can always submit the player to a service centre, get a quote on the likely cost(s) if it can be fixed, then you can decide for yourself afterwards whether or not you wish to go ahead with their repairs. This is up to you.

One idea is for you to replace every electrolytic capacitor in the power supply. This may or may not restore the correct voltage rails to the servo circuits in the player, in turn restoring audio/video as well as normal counter displays. If you do, make sure each capacitor is correctly valued and voltage rated when replacing. Some values may need to be increased as originals may be unusual. This is an inexpensive and simplest way of tackling it; you might be lucky. (Electrolytics are polarised - i.e. they have a stripe down the side = negative pole)

However, if you don't believe you can DIY with this, then the only other alternative due to the possible age of this unit, is to buy a new player. The difference between the cost of a new machine and the repairs to your old one could be significant. Because it is not a recorder, in this case it might be cheaper to simply replace the whole player.

I just purchased a Rowe AMI CD-100a. It was a barn find. Once I learned to initialize, I tried to play individual tacks or entire CDs. For each track, the unit picks the CD, places it down on the player...

Could be the power supply voltage is low, possibly due to a bad capacitor, it seems that when the counter advances it is pulling the voltage down enough to cause the problem you are experiencing. If you can select a disc in the service mode, the counter should be inactive, and you can see if the disc will play through.

The M700 is purely a monitor so you will not be able to control play, pause, stop, skip, FF or RWD. I use my DVD player as a CD player and have to use the DVD remote to change tracks.
