The Fisher Price record player has a device that prevented kids from pressing the needle down and sctratching the record. If you look at the cartridge where the needle is inserted, you will see that it floats up and down. The problem is that this keeps the needle from having enough pressure to play the record. Pennies just make the cartridge recede further into the arm. If you wedge something above the cartridge, the needle won't float and the it will play your records. I've had four of these and none of them worked until I figured this out.

It might be that there is some kind of resistance not allowing the arm to "skate" across the record freely. If there is even the smallest degree of resistance then the arm will effectively stay in one place when it should be moving along with the grooves of the vinyl.

OR - if the needle is does not have the correct tip or is worn severely, it will not fit properly into the grooves and will very easily skip (and sound terrible when playing).

Judging by the age of the unit, look into the first option. Make sure the arm moves freely across the entire range of the album.

Good luck.

Mine did the same thing so I stacked about six pennies together and duct taped them on right above the needle

MY PANASONIC 5CD STEREO SKIPS WHILE PLAYING CD'S I HAVE USED A HEAD CLEANER AND IT STILL DIDN'T WORK.I HATE TO DISCARD IT.


The laser pick-up unit fault [weak]. You have to replace it with a new one of similar number. Contact any service technician. To replace this part, you have to take out the whole mechanism from the system; and this is a skilled work.

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)
