Panasonic SA-PM193 5cd stereo system

CD's have started skipping and jumping during play. It happens in any of the 5 slots. I used a brush type CD cleaner but to no avail. The CD's play fine on any other system.

    We have the same problem. But it does not happen until it has been playing for a little while. Sorry - no solution yet.

How can I fix a slot-loading cd player that skips without taking it apart?

Look inside at the laser carriage. You should see a grooved track. Check that none of the teeth are damaged. They should be in perfect condition. If they are not the lens unit will jump during playback. It could also be caused by too much grease or dirt, or too little grease. Clean the track if you can see too much grease or dirt. If it looks dry, you can apply Silicone Grease, which you can get on-line or in electrical parts shops, such as Maplin if you are in the UK.

I bought a Radio Shack cd cleaner (cd w/little brush on it) to clean the lens of the cd player however the machine won't recognize the disc when inserted so I cannot figure out how to "play" it. Many of...

yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps

multi-disk or single disc player has only one (1) lens (reader), so you can use those commercially available cd player lens cleaner. ( a disc with tiny brushes in it.)

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is

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.

How can I clean the eye on my playstation 2 console.

You can try to clean the lens of your PS2's laser with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner.

You can pick one up from WalMart, Target, etc. for about 15 dollars.

Then you will need to follow the instructions that come with the disc.

The lens cleaner has small brushes on the bottom of the disc, so typically to use it you need to insert it and then play a specific track so that the laser will go under those brushes.

Ps3 will not play ps3 games

yes, there is a safe way by using the CD lens cleaner. i recommend the air cleaners versus the brush models. the air cleaners have the two micro holes drilled into the CD that rushes air during the spinning motion, safely cleaning the lens. the brush design will kill the lens. Although this may be the issue, i would also be ready for another issue like misalignment. this can happen with poorly manufactured PS3 sets. this is rare but it could be the case here.

Static and skipping

You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.

Lens Knocking Against The CD - All CDs skip or diginoise then fail.

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.

Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck
