Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Was given a goodmans GCE7356MP3 for Christmas by one of my kids a couple of years ago, problem is it has never been able to play a CD, it makes a wherring noise as if it is trying to read it, then eventually comes up 'ERROR 2'. Have tried different shop bought music Cd's and copies. The wiring was straight forward using the same connection blocks as on my previous machine which did work, (different make though). Before I ditch it, maybe someone can confirm it's just a cheap make and shouldn't expect it to work?

Did you remove the "transport" screw for the laser head before installing? If so, are you sure you're installing the CDs correctly (with the label side up)? If Yes to both of those, then try resetting the player to see if that helps. The reset button is located behind the detachable faceplate.

If you can remember a time when it worked, the simplest solution may be to use system restore to a time when you think everything worked. If that doesn't do it, go to Control Panel, open device manager, and and check for any yellow checks for your CD/DVD ROM drives, and your sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Also go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. But most likely, your CD/DVD burning program may be corrupted. Remarkably, the drives don't work unless you have a functioning non-microsoft CD/DVD burning program. They don't need drivers. Find out what program you have by downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), and will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what CD/DVD burning programs you have, go to Acer and download any updates (you can't go to the manufacturer of the program, because they make special editions for different computer manufactureres). If that doesn't fix the problem, you can find and reinstall your original program (you may have made copies of all your programs when you first bought your Acer). You can copy the original programs that came with the Acer using Acer eRecovery Management. (You can read about your Acer by clicking on "All Programs" and then on "AcerSystem", where you will find your manual, where you will find the following info: The eRecovery allows you to backup/restore the factory default image, and reinstall any applications and drivers. (In this instance you want to reinstall your CD-DVD burning programs). You just need to select the Burn Disc button, then select the application you want to burn to the disc--in this case, you CD-DVD buring program you identified with Belarc, burn it, then reinstall it. (You might want to burn all the applications the computer came with, just to have them for backup). That should get you going again. Let me know if you run into any problems.

You can try reseting the unit.
Reset the set to the default factory settings:
All the information stored
(programmes, time and date) will be lost.
1.
Disconnect the set from power supply.
2. Press and hold down "STANDBY•ON" on the set and reconnect the set.
3. As soon as "IS TV ON?" is displayed, release "STANDBY•ON."

Hopefully reseting it will clear whatever problem it is having and allow you to once again use your DVD player.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

SOURCE: HP Pavillion not reading audio CD

It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.

Meet Kids? Requirement for Apple Products or not in This Coming...


It is reported thatkid this Christmas would not be pleased with toys as they are exposed to high-techvideo games and cell phones. In the contrast, they also want to have a closecontact with apple's products such as ipod touch, iphone, ipad or otheradvanced gadgets . According to Duracell Toy Report, out ofthe surveyed 2,138 kids, 39 per cent want an Apple product. Seventy per cent5-8 year olds, 50 per cent to 9-12 year olds, and 16 per cent of 13-16 yearolds wanted an Apple product this Christmas. The Apple <span>iPhone4, the Apple iPod Touch and the Apple iPad tablet computer were the three mostdesired Christmas gifts among children, with age group ranging from 5 to 16years. What a great shock for parents for they are too young to play these dearand advanced products.</span> Owing to this trend among those kids,some school made a survey that how much do they learn about ipod , iphone ,ipad."I know ipod well. <a>The iPod is a combination portabledigital media player and hard drive from Apple Computer. The original versionwas about the of a deck of playing cards, with a monochrome screen and a 5gigabyte capacity. iPods can be now be purchased with up to 60 GB of hard drivecapacity and color screens capable of playing television shows, videos ormovies uploaded from a PC. </a> <span>"AniPod can be connected to a computer with either a FireWire or USB port, withmany of the latest versions depending upon USB 2.0. iPods have a reputation forbeing user-friendly." A 10 years old boy said to his teacher. "How can youlearn so much about this?" Can you tell us some other information about ipodsuch as how to </span><a href="http://www.ipod-computer.net/guide/transfer-music-from-ipod-to-computer.html"><span>transfer music from ipod to computer</span></a><span>?"His teacher said to the little boy in a amazing manner. "Yes of course , exceptfor this, while the iPod was originally platform dependent, after July 2004iPods (and Apple's iTunes software, included with each unit) worked on eitherWindows or Mac. iTunes makes it possible to load an entire CD onto an iPod inas little as ten seconds, organize thousands of songs into favorite playlists,purchase songs, albums, videos and movies from the online store and subscribeto podcasts. The iPod supports most audio file formats including MP3, WAV, andAAC. As of October 2006, the iPod was the world's most popular portable digitalmedia player, with more than 60 million units sold worldwide. </span>Ofcourse we can transfer ipod's contents to computer through a <span><a href="http://www.ipod-computer.net/"> ipod to computer transfer </a>softwarein case of losing ipod."</span> According to the dialogue between the teacher and hisstudent, I think we won't be surprised at the fact that fourteen per cent of the respondents saidthat they wanted an iPhone, while iPod Touch <span>and iPadwere voted by 13 per cent and 12 per cent, respectively. In the list of mostwanted gifts, Kinect for Xbox grabbed fourth position, while Kung Zhu Hamsters,Flip Video Camera, Toy Story 3 Jet Pack Buzz Lightyearsecured fifth, sixth and seventh spots, respectively. </span> "Althoughsome kids have a better understanding of these advanced apple products, it is stilla big problem that can we meet their needs to buy their ipod or iphone in thiscoming chirstmas." Most parents exclaimed.

Do all kids know how to pretend play? My 3 year old just is not that interested in playing with toys that do not have a specific purpose. Should I worry?


All kids are different and even when guidelines for 'normal development' are given, it doesn't mean you should panic if your child isn't meeting those milestones. If your child can generally play with other kids, even if it's more side by side playing than teamwork, then I wouldn't worry too much.
If you are concerned, you can always consult your doctor for reassurance

Emerson ms3105 won't play cd's wont even spin


kungfuz...I have had two of these emerson cd players. One is in my home and is still working after 3 1/2 years. The other was purchased for our church just over a year ago and it has stopped working. The disks will turn a little then stop. Occasionally it will still play a complete hymn but this is rare. Also a grinding sound can be heard with the ear close to the unit. I think when you pushed the combo of buttons and it stopped working, this is likely just a fluke and it was probably going bad anyway. I may be wrong but I have been down this road myself and your problem sounds very similar to mine. I can't offer you much encouragement...sorry...!

Unfortunately it is not possible to make any estimates over the internet. As the warranty for the watch already expired years ago, there is no reason to find any particular Tag Heuer dealer. You can visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for an estimate.

Could be many things. But it probably needs a new pick-up (laser). You can try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab.
