View Full Version : CDs 'slipping' at spinup in CD3.5

Hey folks, I wonder if anyone has had this problem before...

Sometimes when I pop a CD in the cd3.5 and close the tray, it spins up but makes a kind of farting noise as the CD appears to slip and it doesn't read. The display says 'ERR'. If I open and close the drawer again, it usually reads fine without farting or slipping (or maybe a little fart, but it still reads!)

Thanks guys,
Carl

It's your puck - the little rubbers have compressed (so the disc slips) - try rotating them slightly; take a close look, it will become obvious.

Some discs are thinner than others at the hub, too...

Ah, now that makes sense, yes. I'll give 'em a whirl tonight, thanks Martin.

I use a small piece of plastic foam under the puck when it happens. Just a couple of millimeters big.
