Question about Adcom Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Adcom GCD-575: This unit has been the best performing player I've ever owned. After 15 years there is a problem. After insertion of a disc there is a spin up of the CD but no data is reflected/read within the panel display. I have confirmed that the Laser B+ is good. Not long ago I came across a few articles that implicated that this fault was a common issue with the player. Does any one have any recall of this issue with this model?

Your laser mechanism has lost its ability to focus on the surface of the disk and can no longer read the data. Needs to be replaced since repair not cost effective.

It will require a tech to open and clean the laser lens and change the drawer belt.

Disc spins. functions on display seem to read normal.no output though. thought problem might be the missing remote

If you have a play button then it should work fine, the only concern I have, might be set on mute, if that is the case the remote is needed to release the mute function. Try subbing the audio/video cable to rule out.

GCD-700 does not turn on. Internal fuses OK

If the fuse is intact the fault must be checked from the power supply to the main motherboard section.
Check if the power supply works, if not check the SM drivers .Click the link below;

Adcom GCD 700 tracking problems

Hi mate,
I experienced this problem awhile back with mine. I had it serviced and the techs couldn't find anything wrong. They cleaned the laser and lubed the tray and sent it back. To my dismay, the problem re-started shortly after arrival and then stopped. By coincidence, I had just finished a home theater set up "that did not have wall to wall carpeting" and low behold the problem stopped and never re-surfaced. I summed it up to static charge/discharge which might also be your problem.

I hope that helps.

Adcom GCD 700

Is there a specific question or just generalities? Open up the top and the Sony optics number should be right on the optic assembly. I believe that it uses a KSS-240 optics assembly. What else do you need?

Adcom gcd-600 won't play

If I understand your issue, you press play and the player does not recognize the disc, the optical pickup may be defective. I suggest you contact an Authorized Adcom Service Center. For further questions, contact Adcom directly.
