    My problem is identical to yours. Did you find a solution? I'm at my wit's end & need help ASAP! Thx, Gini

    I have had the same problem twice. The first time I replaced the ribbon cable PNP1343. It fixed the problem but not for long.I am relucant to replace it again since I have checked it with an ohm meter and it seems ok. Because it is connected to the laser head that moves, it is claimed that it wear out quickly. Not good engineering! Replacement cost is only $10.

Make sure you place the disk correctly in the caddy, (Upside down in the caddy). It seems backwards, but I had it do that, and I flipped the cd over, and it worked.

    Remove the four screws on the side of the case and two in the back, to open it up. Remove the four screws holding the CD/laser component, which has the thin ribbon attached to it, and clean the lens of the laser with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip. Put all the screws back in place and you are all set to enjoy your CD player once again.

Sony dav-dz555k home theatre system-dvd tray keeps opening and closing, wont read disc at all. have to manually push tray closed and change setting from dvd to something else to stop it.


You seem to be having a door sensor problem. When the CD tray closes a small switch under the loading tray shorts telling the microprocessor the door is closed and to stop the motor (either way when it opens or when it closes). A malfunction in this switch causes this symptom.

Pioneer DV535 Player


That sounds like a problem that needs professional service. The door may have jumped a gear, or there could be a circuit malfunction. At any rate, it's probably cheaper to buy a new DVD player. CD and DVD technology are quite precarious still, and I wouldn't expect more than a couple years service from most DVD players.

Hi Peter,
First thing to ask you to check is that the discs have been inserted into the cartridge the correct way... that is writing facing down. Check that first and let me know how you get on. Happy to work through it with you.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

Pioneer PD-206 wont power up


Hi tfulton


Try disconnecting from the power and powering it up again to reset the unit.

If it still wont cooperate, the unit will have popped a IC protector in the power supply. Not an uncommon fault. The burnt disc you used may have pushed the tracking servos a little hard and a circuit protector has kicked it. Pop the lid off and look for a black 2 wire device about 4mm across that viewed from above has a D shape. Measure it with an ohm meter....It should read low ohms, if it does not... it has failed. It may be marked as ICPxx(from memory)

A fast fix we used for this is to grab the device and give it a 200 deg twist to short the legs together. Soemtimes(often) the body of the device will break off, just solder the legs left behind.

They have a habit of failingl with no reason, and shorting across them will not affect the operation of the unit, nor put it anything in jeopardy.

OR pull the board out... and replace the device, although I can tell you through experience, they may fail again.

Good luck, if you have any questions, just get back to
me here. :)
