Can a CD player being close to a receiver or power amplifier affect its performance?


CD player used to be in another room from amplification. Now in an old Telefunken console on a shelf right under the amplifier .Exhibited all kinds of glitches. No disc, error, skipping, not finishing full play. Anyone experience this?

Sounds mechanical. Either too close to the speakers or you rattled it during the move.

It could be power related, but honestly not my first bet.
Thanks. Has glitches with speakers off. Tech checked out mechanical functions, lens , sled, etc. No issues there.
Move it back to where it was and see if it still has problems.
Thanks. We sold that house and only have room to place it where it is.

I suppose it is possible EMF, magnetic field, of the amplifier’s power transformer is affecting the CDP in some way.

Try relocating the CDP on top of the console, not directly above the power transformer of the amplifier, and see if the problems with the CDP still exists.
Thank you. I thought that might be a reason.Just wondered if anyone else experienced this phenomenon.
No. Your tech is obviously wrong. Disc errors? Impossible to be caused by anything but either the disc or the drive mechanism or lens.
Thanks. Yep, he could very well be wrong. Researching my symptoms.So far I have seen that EMF interference could be a possibility also.

Did you move the player as I suggested? A five minute job. You will know then if it solves the problem or not.

never had what you are experiencing but when the laser goes bad, you generally have the issues you are describing.  Try moving the distance to see what happens, try taking the CDP out of the system and just plugging it in to see if it reads the CD with no errors.  It does not have to be in your system to see if the errors occur.


Happy Listening.

Thank you all for your kind and informative suggestions. I moved the CDP and the problems have been resolved. I suppose the EMF was interfering with the CDP's functions.That or maybe heat?  Just curious. Would removing the CDP from the system and plugging it in- would the display indicate if it was skipping? IE- what would that look like.                                                                                                                                     Thank you so much again.                  
If the CD player has a current/remaining track time display you would see that changing erratically if skipping.
