Problem with CD player

Okay, as stated before on here.
I have 4 cd changers that skip within the first
30 seconds of a track.
Now, some on here have said to get some
White Lithium grease from the hardware store, and lube
the guide rails for the laser assembly,
well I finally did that on Saturday.
It did take awhile to figure this out because the guide
rails were NOT at the top, as some said on here.
My cx90es chagers have the guide rails, in the back
corner, in the middle, and you have to use your finger
to move the gears that move the rail.
NOW, so far so good, NONE of them have skipped!
So that was HELPFULL advice.
NOW, the problem is 1 of the changers only has sound
coming out of the ANALOG LEFT channel,
I checked the board, and nothing seems to have come loose
or broken! The Female connector, seems to have a
BIGGER opening than the the left female connector!
So, can I stick tin foil in the female connector to see
if it`s just making contact? OR, is it something else?
I cleaned the laser, when I had the unit opened, and
since the Digital output is in stereo, what else
would/could it be?
Sorry, I hope this comes out right, why dont you buy a new player?
You are having way too much trouble with the present equipment.
Sounds like the right channel analog section has died. It happens. Send the unit in for service, order the replacement board and swap it yourself or just use the optical digital output which you seem to be able to do.
Well Ozzy, times are tough right now, and I was hoping to
fix this, rather than throw another piece of gear into
a landfill! But hey, that`s just me, call me crazy.
But if you want to give me the money to get a new player.
Then that`s fine with me.
Have you switched the output cables right-for-left, or simply tried another pair?
time for a sony 595 refurb from sonystyle for $60. For $10 you can get a five year warranty. If you don't like it, sony will come get it for a free pick up. no brainer.
