Hi all...

One more question- I have an old Clarion CBus 6 disc CD changer which is skipping badly- can anybody recommend me a place which can perform a competent repair? I tried taking it to Clarion's distributor..... but no joy.

I'm in PJ so referrals to car audio repairers around this part of town would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

No la bro... they said very old model, cannot repair, no parts...... all bull la. It's skipping. All that means is the lens needs to be cleaned and the stepper needs to be serviced and re-lubricated.

They just couldn't be bothered la. I'd do it myself only I'm not sure how to get the thing open!!

Skipping and non tracking sometimes could be the lens weaken. My DVD player, my technician checked for me before. The lens cost more then the set... smile_shock.gif smile_disapprove.gif
Sometimes after cleaning may or may not work properly also. I will try to contact my ex technician see if he can do anything..

What about those lens cleaning disc?

If you are not able to do it by yourself then you can have it done by a professional mechanic. Online vendors are another option you might consider.
