CD player not working

CDs won't turn on platter and don't read. I don't have a screw driver long enough to take apart the unit. I figure there's probably a little elastic that's popped off under the platter which could be replaced. Thanks for any assistance.

  • Anonymous May 18, 2008

    I have split the speakers and attached them to my speakers on to my boat dock down on the lake. Will that make a big difference? I can hear the cd's changing even shows on the front of the unit. But no sound. Do you have any suggestions? Thanking you in advance for all of your support. I do not know the number of my unit. Where would I find the number on my unit?

    The cd problem started as a intermittent problem first it would spin but not read any of the disc that i would play.Then it stopped working all together. I carefully took it apart and visually inspected it. I don"t know what part is defective? How costly is it to replace the cd component of this radio? Their were 4 screws holding the whole circuit board assembly in place with a nine pin wiring harness plug into it. If i could find the whole assembly as i took it off i will replace it my self. or maybe someone else might have a suggestion other than having to pay $50.00 and postage to send it out for repair!! HELP!

I fixed the CD player on my Aiwa CSD-TD49! The CD would spin a bit, but the counter stayed at 0:00 with no sound. Open the unit carefully by removing the six screws on the back, and one on the bottom (all have arrows pointing to them.) There is an antenna wire on the left side, and some more on the right side. You should be able to pull the rear section back enough to shift it to the left. Look at the unit from the rear left side. There is a small white adjustable potentiometer or variable resistor. Mine started out in an almost horizontal position, and through turning it clockwise almost a quarter turn, fixed the CD player. I can't tell you exactly what this did, but it worked. It was a little hard to put the unit back together, but just be gentle and patient, and you'll get it back into one piece. Hope this helps!

NO NO NO NO NO NO dont be sticking a screw driver where you dont know where its going!!!! Theres no belt under the turntable as its a direct drive motor. It the platter dosent turn then that means that the laser is not focusing on the disc. This could a combination of five differant things. First is a simple one as the lens may need cleaning. Try first by using a good lens cleaning disc. Second make sure the slider that the lens is attached to is all the way back to the platter as sometimes there is a small belt that drives the slider assy via a worm gear and that belt goes bad alot as the worm gear i've seen get gunked up with air and dirt. Third is the platter its self . It may have slipped down to close to the lens and it wont focus. Forth could be the motor drive curcuit is defective . Coulkd be a bad motor control ic or the b+ going to the curcuit. and finally but not least could be a bad laser assy. If this is bad you might as well buy a new unit unless you can install one your self but be warned if you do you will need to alighn the new PU assy for tracking and focus gains as well as rf azmuth and laser power. Good luck I hope this put a little lite on the subject for ya.

Aiwa CSD-TD901 - CD player not spinning up. My solution.

It appears that for me, two problems occurred at once.
1) The interlock switch was faulty. Cleaning the contacts fixed this but still the spindle motor was not moving.
2) The laser was too far in on the track positions keeping the CD from spinning up. With the power unplugged, I manually rotated the track gears very gently to move the laser all the way to the outside position.

After reconnecting the power, the laser moved to the correct inner position, the CD spun up again for the first time since failing, and now plays music just fine.

I hope this helps someone else.

I had a similar problem with my Sony CDP-715 player.
With or without a inserted cd there would be no spin and in the screen only a "zero" would appear (not "no disk") in both situations.
With the unit unplugged I gently made the lens assembly go all the way out position, by gently spinning the white plastic gear adjacent.
Then I turned the unit on and the lens assembly would drive to its normal position at the center.. after doing this 2 or 3 times I heard some click sound as the laser was returning to sector zero and that time it went all the way, then the unit started working normally again.
Probably dirt buildup or lack of lubrication or just wear...
Hopefully this wonderfull machine will still have a 2nd life

Tt200 Newmark platter won't spin

RE. record deck not turning.
most older turntables are belt driven, these corrode over time becoming brittle and lose their stretchy abilities (like an elastic band), you can sometimes get a little extra use by cutting a small section out of the belt then using a tiny spot of superglue to stick the ends back together (end to end, DON'T overlap), i've used elastic bands in this same way when the belt has been beyond rescue.... postal service elastic bands are about the right width, ask your local postman. you don't want it too tight, just enough to prevent any slack.

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable

Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

    Pitch adjustment

    There's a variable resistor with the name pitch besides it... first clean it and then you put your pitch fader in the middle and turn it with a screw driver, put your platter on the unit, the plastic black plate you only have to unscrew and take off , nothing else., but like i said , but the platter on it and watch the strobe lights. Determine first which way you have to screw, it's just whole the time :taking of platter and turn screw a bit(don't forget to take of the electricity when you remove the platter), put it on and do that until the strobe stays steady.

    Recently purchased used Panasonic SL-HM42 turntable. Works, but turning a little slow on 33rpm (30-31rpms) says DC Servo System on the front. Don't see any set screws on bottom. would like to get platter...

    How to tweak the playback speed on Panasonic SL-HM42 turntables

    You will need:

    1. 1x small Philips screw driver
    2. 1x small flat-head screw driver
    3. An ear for correct pitch and a little bit of DIY skill!

    Step 1 - Remove the wooden base plate

    After ensuring that you've removed the the rubber turntable slip mat and securely docked the turntable arm, carefully flip the turntable over onto its lid to expose the wooden base plate, as per below.

    Using the small Philips-head screw driver, remove the screws holding the wooden base plate in place, then gently lift the base plate off the turntable.


    Step 2 - Expose the pitch adjustment screws

    Once the wooden base plate is removed, you will see the speed-controller circuit board on the right-hand side.

    To expose the the two speed/pitch-control screws, firstly remove the screw holding the speed-controller circuit board in place, then gently lift the circuit board up on the free side.

    Step 3 - Correct the turntable playback speed and pitch

    The easiest way I found to correct the playback speed was to flip the turntable carefully back into the original position, allowing the speed-controller circuit board to hang free as shown below.


    Next, play a record that you know well and are able to tell when the speed/pitch is correct (assuming you have an ear for correct pitch, that is!), then at the same time using the small flat-head screwdriver, gently turn the speed adjustment screw(s) to adjust the playback speed up or down until the correct playback speed and pitch is achieved (or at least until it no longer annoys you ;).

    Turning the screws clockwise (to the right) will increase the speed/pitch, and anticlockwise (to the left) will decrease the speed/pitch.

    NB - Both screws allow for fine pitch control, so if the second is already at maximum speed, you can use the first screw for additional speed.
    Step 4 - Reassemble the turntable again

    When you're happy with the speed of your turntable, remove the record, the mat again & locking the turntable arm, replace the screw holding the speed-controller circuit in place (as per Step 2) and then finally replace the screws holding the wooden base plate, as per Step 1.
    Happy listening!

    Wurlitzer 1015 cd player that wont read the cds bot the drive motor spin real fast ???

    That usually means the Laser can not pick up the CD surface. I have not worked on Wurlitzer CD but have worked on hundreds of other units and the technology is the same. It could be the platter distance is too far from the pickup or that one of the six laser pickup has burned out to allow correct tracking. There is a Focus OK signal that has to be satisfied first, then spin up and data reading of the TOC. f it can not do that they may spin wildly.

    I am trying to shir using elastic thread in my bobbin but my fabric will not shir & my elastic there jams causing me to start all over. I have studied many tutorials. It seems I need to tighten the...

    Have you wound the bobbin with the shiring under tension? you need the shirring elastic to be stretched somewhat as it goes onto the bobbin so that when stitched out, it relaxes and pulls the fabric up.

    And yes, usually you need to tighten up the bobbin tension also to stretch the elastic some more.

    The Ellure has a horizonal drop in bobbin so you will need to access this to adjust the tension. This may require unscrewing the two screws holding down the needle plate (metal flat plate you sew over). Take this off and now you'll see the bobbin holder area clearly. Look where the tension spring is, the little groove you pull the thread into when threading up. Is there a small dial just near this, about 7mm across? it will have a groove in the top and hopefully a + and - marking.

    IMPORTANT: carefully make a note of where it is set now. Take a picture or write a little diagram down so you can get it back to normal setting. Use your little accessory screwdriver and carefully turn it one click to +, then test sew. YOu may need to turn it up 3 clicks to get the elastic stretched enough. Just make sure you know where to set the dial back to when you are done.

    Also, remember you won't be able to shir heavy fabric, just light weight cottons work best.

    I find that stitching lots of straight lines of shirring like you see tube bodice sundresses made in ready to wear is very hard, factories will have a machine that sews 20 rows at once. And getting enough gathers is trial and error with a domestic sewing machine.

    Here's how I do it. Turn down top selvage edge of the fabric width you want to gather, turn down about 10mm and straight stitch around. Now on the wrong side with a sewing marker pen rule lines down from here across the fabric width spaced 1 cm apart. Now lie shirring elastic on these lines and stitch over it with a narrow zig zag stitch making sure not to catch the elastic with the needle. Start each sitching seam one cm from the raw edge of the fabric and finish the seam the same way.

    Now I pull the elastic up from each side pulling all of them evenly until I"ve got it gathered enough. Now place right sides together and stitch the fabric into a tube catching the elastic ends in and securing them.

    I hope this helps you out.

    The CD player in my Pure Legato 2 system won;t register CDs, the last few times I listened to CDs they skipped a bit, now it won't play them at all, it just reads 'no CD'.

    I have fixed this problem in 2 Legatos. But don't attempt this if you have no experience with electrical equipment.
    You need to open the case (4 screws deeply recessed in the back panel, 3 screws securing the speaker terminals and the phono socket block, and the nut and plastic washer holding the aerial socket. Gently ease the rear panel back enough to access the rear of the CD mechanism. Under the CD laser assembly carriage, there is a small trim pot (with a yellow cross-head adjuster screw). I found a small anticlockwise adjustment got the CD player working again. (I assume this trimmer increases the gain of the optical sensor amp.) Secure the rear panel before powering on again to test. It may require a little trial and error to recover the full functionality of the CD.
    Good luck.
