Soooooo Need Help......
Have this model and it seems that no sound is coming from the left component of this Emerson CD Player, checked the speaker by switching them to either side as well as hooked speakers up to another stereo, it is definately just the unit - tried to take it and get it repaired - 3 places told me that it would be to costly - that they make these intentional for throw away when they stop working. Well I have maybe used this unit a dozen times, and it has never left the wall that I hung it when I purchased it. So I went ahead and contacted Emerson for help - adn they said it was past the 90 days for warranty and they had no listing of a service provided in the Phoenix, Arizona region to help me.
What does a girl do now ? ? ? ? ?

Re: Emerson MS3100 3-Disc CD Changer Troubleshooting
Sounds like you just need to keep looking for a small shop that will take it on for a fair price.
You probably have a bad output transistor or module (which ever it uses). My shop could repair it, but to pay shipping to and from would just add to the cost of the repair and make it even more likely that a new unit would be about the same cost. There is no easy solution to this other than to keep looking and maybe talk to your friends to see if you can find a small shop in your area that can do it cheaply. Sorry I can't give you any better opinion. Good luck.

It doesn't need an amp, it has one built into the radio. You may have it wired wrong. Please tell me what color the wires are coming from the radio that you have connected to the speakers. Each channel has it's own color, with the black stripe wire being the negative for each channel. Example: the gray wire is positive for front left speaker and the grey with a black stripe is the negative for the front left. Make sure that none of your speaker wires are grounded to the chassis.
Its easy i think your chinch cables are not good try with other pair of chinches and if it not work try to change the speakers from a to b position on your amplifier if that doesnt work probably its the one chanell on your cd is not working.
Try this since you do not supply model numbers. If your receiver and CD have digital audio connector (coaxil or fiber) hook the receiver output to the cd input.
If you do not, see if there is a spare set of RCA jacks for output. If not, just hook up the cd player in the cassette jacks-there is always a cassette in and out-and hook your cd player to an auxillary input or use the cd player input.
Remeber though, cassettes have inherently more noise than cd so your cds will not sound like a pre-packed cd.
Any speaker, if abused, can be blown. And if overdriven with dirty power at extreme levels it is not uncommon to burn out the voice coil. You might also want to check out the speaker surrounds. If they go, the speaker works but sounds lousy.
Localize the problem by hooking up two known good working speakers and see what happens. If they also do not work properly or sound like cr-p then the radio is at issue.
You have one of 3 problems:1) bad solder joints in the amplifier or preamp section 2)defective output transistors/ICs in the power amp or 3)missing or incorrect voltages to the amp section. If the unit has a headphone jack plug in a headset. If you have sound then everything is OK thru the preamp section and your problem is in the power amp. Any competent repair shop should be able to solve this one easily.
