CED players are now in the vintage era -around 30 years since new. We are seeing more age related problems We plan to include in this page from time to time fixes for performance related problems with the players.
TECH TIP 1 Problem- My SFT100w wont play past 1 minute into the disc.
This is a problem that could happen to any RCA F or G line player. The most likely cause that play will not advance is that the arm servo belt is stretched with age and is slipping on the arm servo motor shaft.
TRY THIS QUICK FIX.
Remove the belt from the player. Shrink the belt . This can be done by totally immersing the belt in household ammonia overnight. Then next day install the belt back in the player. Most likely the resized belt will work and grip the motor shaft.
