- If a disc will not play, check to see if the disc was loaded correctly
(label side up). Also check the disc for excessive dirt, scratches, etc.
- If the disc turns but there is no sound, check the cable connections,
if they are ok, check your amplifier or reciever.
-If the CD skips, check the CD for dirt or scratches. Do not assume that
the CD player is defective. Many cd’s are recorded out of spec and
will skip on most or all CD players. Before sending the unit for repair,
try playing a CD that you are sure plays properly.
