I had the same problem, and miguelovitch's solution and site were very helpful. I was able to replace the burned out bulbs with two white LEDs. The trick was determining that the power supplied to the bulbs is 15 volts DC. Once I figured that out, I picked up Radio Shack part 276-0017, 2 5mm high brightness white LEDs, and some 560 ohm resistors to drop the voltage to the LEDs. (The online LED circuit calculator I used sugested 470 ohms, but I went one higher for safety.)

The results are quite satisfying, though I should not have pointed the LEDs directly at the display becuase they do make a bright spot.

Now if I can only figure out how to get my home theater receiver's remote to control the CD player!

"No disc" message while CD is in


either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit that reads the disc so it can play.

Unit works fine but LCD display does not illuminate. Can be seen in a low ligfht room but it does not light up like it did for years. Do these LCD displays just die???


The older LCD's have backlights hidden behind the display that burn out over a period of time, this is a tricky repair because the unit needs to be stripped down and the covering removed. Soldering skills for most jobs will be required.

Seems a lot of reports like this have been noted and unfortunately the FIX cost more than replacing the electronics. My suggestion...make your move to a new unit.

Top console is not working on Pro 1000 Dual Scratching CD Player


Check controller cable between base and remote. Look for bent pins. If appears ok, you may have an internal loose connection. Try and narrow down if loose section is on base or remote. You could have it resoldered if needed. [email protected]

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...


I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

Teac pdh-300


Generally something that is time related with a CD player indicates that there is something stuck in one of the gear teeth that drive the laser back and forth to play different areas of the disc. A very small piece of dirt/sand can get inside and stuck in a gear tooth preventing the laser from moving past that point on the CD, in your case it's about the 40 minute mark........you can try skipping to say the last song on the CD which will advance the laser unit a bit more quickly than if you were to let the disc play through, that might dislodge the piece.
Another scenario could be a cracked gear in the same drive area. This is not as likely as you say it plays for 40 minutes or so. There is a piece that is attached to the laser which has gear teeth in it that mesh with the gears that move it, I'd suspect it's in there.
Make sure you do not have the player plugged in when you open it, the laser is capable of damaging your eyes.
