Hi 2002tii

These are a cool old machine. They use the cdm1 laser mechanism that was revered in its day for high performance. If you have voltage available after the rectifier stages, check the 3 pin voltage regulators. Marked as 78xx for positive regulator, and 79xx for negative. the xx gives you the voltage they are supposed to be putting out. They commonly fail, also check the same for dry solder joint. resolder them anyway if you are unsure. If all the regulators check out, then also check low value flame proof resistors in the power supply rails. Get back to me here again and let me know how you got on. Good Luck

My cd player stopped working the power light is not showing i have changed the lead to make sure it was not the fuse


Check for bulging / leaky capacitors on the main PCB, they are a common problem on Arcam CD Players.
There should be a few 25v 1000uf caps scattered around, check those first.

Hope this helps.

My CD tray closes before I insert disk


check the micro switches on the cd mechanism. these can go wrong sometimes. it's obviously not sending a message to the micro chip that the tray is open therefor it will close again automatically.

hope this helps?

Wurlitzer omt K99 the cd will stop during play


I seem to be having the same problem and all signs point to the serial control board board Pt# 0046630 under the player. The symptoms with mine were randomly cutting off songs about 20 sec after song start and returning disc to carrier. It started mostly when juke was first turned on (cold) and then progressed to all the time and now display on cd board is dark only randomly coming to life then dead again. power on the sub transformer is good and when it comes to life player works well. I am sending the board to be repaired.

I have plug my sansa mp3 player in the teac mc and it seems dead.


there may be a fuse in there or even on the back of the teac. if not on the back, then have to take the cover off, and just follow where the ac cord comes in and trace up to the switch, you may find a glass fuse there somewhere thats blown. In which case replace with an exact duplicate. (please be unplugged if you try this)

Dead


I am assuming that your unit cannot be powered up at this time. this is the result of a failed fuse or power supply board. remove the cover and check the in-line fuse(if equipped). if the fuse is OK, replace the entire power board. Now, if you unit isn't equipped with a fuse, you will need to check the solder on the power cord. make sure it is soldered on the power board correctly. if its not loose and, it is connected securely to the power board, replace the power board.

Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.


I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help

Arcam CD73 fault


Hi there. I would check the power supply rails, you have probably lost a volatge about the Audio line output /DA stages. Check voltage reg packs, they fail alot. I have repaired a few of these over the years, hit me back if you need to go further.
