Hi,

Many thank for your CDX manual. I am still having a problem with my CD104. The tray does not open!. I could not find the circuit diagram for it on the CDX manual. I think I have to look for CD104 manual.

Once again many thanks for your help.

Chlo.

ahh that would be different as the CDX was a top loader and hand no drawer mechanism.

If you take the top off you can (carefully) manually open the drawer. If you load a CD does it play correctly ?

Is there any motor noise if you press eject ? If so it might be as simple as the rubber belt is broken. Mine is not broken but is a bit loose . It looks very fiddly to replace assuming you can find a substitute

Thanks Wojtek.l,



do you know how the Grundig 7550 differs from a CD 104 ?

My next tweak will be to add some ferrite to the 3 * 47uH chokes on the decoder board . These help to keep noise from the 7010, 7020 chips appearing on the +5v supply

generally cd104 is similar to cd7550 but cd7550 has extra special ground for kill HF intermodulation

CD104 - CD304 have very special sounding DACs, any tweaks won't change much IMHO.

Hi.

Don't forget to resolder ALL the through-board connections from the ground planes (with a wire from top to bottom) !

"" I am still having a problem with my CD104. The tray does not open!. """

These connections cause untold problems including such as above.

Andy
