How To Repair 3 CD Changer That Does Not Play CD’s- Model: LG LM-M345
An old man walked to my shop and had a CD player in his hands. He did not know what was wrong with it but he wanted it to be fixed. The moment I powered up the player, the screen came on and I could hear a strange noise coming from inside of it.
He said to fix what possible to be fixed but since no one used tapes any more; I decided to fix the CD player only.
I could see some buttons broken but that is ok; he can use the remote control to access functions on this panel. The customer was ok with that option.
I had to take the two sided plastic covers and then the top one off. The moment I took the top off, I was able to see inside the CD player.
As you can see in the photo, the try was dirty and moist and I could imagine the effect of that dirt on the CD Pick up lens.
I pulled the try out and it came out very easily. It is not always like that but it is an indication of a broken belt that controls the in and out functions.
As you can see the belt was missing and I am sure it was broken as well.
I found the rubber belt broken inside the CD player and I put it back for the photo. That was the noisy sound that I heard before. Motor was running freely.
I found the right size rubber belt put it back on and tested the CD player and just I expected, the CD was not running smoothly and the sound was breaking up. I spread some contact spray on the spinning motor and I did some cleaning on the pickup lens and the CD was once more running smoothly and the sound was great.
