The CD player on my system operates normally for 3-5 minutes upon insertion of a CD, then it stops and skips to the next CD or stops playing the CD it's on. It doesn't shut down, the CD player just stops working. Any thoughts?

Re: XD-A8 CD player
This sounds like it could need just a simple cleaning with a lens cleaner disc, or could be a bad spindle motor or spindle servo circuit, or the laser is getting weak, and last but not least It very well could be a damaged or dirty slider rail or motor assembly. In my opinion, the only one that is worth the money to try, would be the cleaning. Good Luck

There are several brands and publishers of audio books and you didn't identify yours. In most cases professionally produced audio books are separated into several 3-6 minute tracks. your CD player should just skip to the next using the button with the single arrow pointing to the vertical line. >l
When listening to audio books, If I'm using a cd player that doesn't retain the last track when shut off I make a mental note of the track number.

At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.
Greetings, I have owned this system since around 1999/2000, my CD function started to mal-function a year or so later. It would sometimes play, but more often than not, it would wobble and make strange clicking type noises. I gave up trying to figure the problem out because of the frustration, and didnt want to spring big bucks to take it in the shop to fix professionaly. However...only yesterday, based upon some advice I read online somewhere, I think I solved the problem and I will pass along what I did.
1 I first took some rubbing alcolhol and useing a model paint brush, I dipped the brush into the bottle and applyed it on the laser lense (do this spareingly, do not flood) this cleaned the lense of dust and grime)
2 It played a CD for the first time in 10 years. BUT...it started to do it's old tricks when I tryed to skip to the next song.
3 I noticed a small button on the right, front side on top of the unit. I think this button serves as a sort of safety stop. I then lifted up the glass lid, and held down the button with my finger. I noticed the lense of the laser go DOWN into the body of the unit. When I released the button, it came back UP.
4 I placed a CD into the player, placed the stabiliser on the top of the CD as normal, AND HELD THE BUTTON DOWN with my finger, LEAVEING THE GLASS TOP UP. It PLAYED. I recorded a Flatt
NAV unit uses a DVD disc. If its a copy, it may or may not work. I suggest you remove the NAV disc, unplug the NAV unit from power for 4-5 minutes, reconnect the NAV and try inserting the disc again to see if it reads. If it still does not read, another NAV disc needs to be inserted to verify its not a "bad" NAV DVD disc issue. If it still cannot read the second disc, the NAV unit is bad. The handbook feature needs the disc inserted in the slot 1 of the CD changer unit.
1. Go to System/Library/Caches and trash the folder com.apple.kernelcaches
2. Go back to System/Library and trash the file Extensions.kextcache
If that doesn't work, try trashing this file:
That is the way its done
I had a rca system similar to this little different. It's a problem you'll find in any cd player after awhile. You'll need to replace the laser. It's quite easy google for some instructions to replace a cd laser. Look around for a laser that can read cd's and cd r and cd rw and you'll be ok. The disassembling might be a bit tuff but it's worth it. I had to replace my hifi laser and after i did sound was incredible again no skipping. Make sure when opening your system you power it on and unplug it to make sure all charge is gone wait 30 minutes or so before you go and operate.
