Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Pioneer cmx-3000 dual cd player. When I put a CD into the drive it makes a "clicky" noise and doesn't read the disk, bringing up the error E-8303. The disks are clean and new. I have taken the cover off the back and found where the laser is meant to be moving back and fourth, one of the cogs is slipping not allowing the laser to move. What can I do?

My pioneer cmx 3000 does not control speed correctly and produces draging audio out put

If your using burned CDs try burning them at lower speeds lower then 24x like 4x,8x,16x also try different brand disc. It's a common problem with poor quality discs and burn speeds higher then 24x

Pioneer cmx 3000 controller problem The unit powers up but the displays do not light up and if you press any buttons all that happens is another button lights up. It has no control of the main unit....


Check the fuses in the main unit. The fuses looks like a resistor, but are marked with "IC" on the print.IC207 (1,5A) and IC209 (315mA) are the one I found to be faulty in a CMX3000 I fixed.

Hi, try cleaning the lens with a cleansing disk. if this doesn't produce results, it will confirm a major issue within the lens assembly. you will need to replace the lens assembly in this case. it is unable to track or read in this damaged sate.
