Just won a Panasonic RX-DT707 on ebay, it arrived this week, the write up said "everything working perfectly", but it wasn't, put a cd in and it played for about a minute then skipped back to about 30 seconds and continued to do so.

Tried another cd and the same thing happened again, tried going forward to another track and it just made a noise as if it couldn't find the track.

I then dismantled it to look at the cd player, nothing obvious! cleaned the cd lens then reassembled it. Still the same problem.

Any ideas anybody? :sad:

Haven't had this one apart but it might have a small adjusting screw on the laser, if so you can adjust it in very small steps until it works. That's assuming the problem is the laser alignment. :hmmm:

Hey adespin!

Isn't there something you could do like tell the guy you bought it from to reimburse you some $?

I'm here in Venezuela and I'd be screwed but you aren't! I'd suggest you try and get some sort of $ back... :huh:

Yes, the guy has agreed to give me £25 back, it cost me £70.
I want to keep the radio in the hope i can fix it, or find a replacement cd unit, i've done some digging and found out that the RX-DT401 has the same unit and they are a lot cheaper box.
Thanks for the concern Stranj.

And thanks for the advice Masterblaster.

Great outcome. :-P
The 707 is a really nice unit, with the "cobra" top lid as Panasonic called it.

Here's a link for more info....
