Cambridge Soundworks Radio CD 740
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Okay thank you. Taking a look at this model right now. Can you tell me if pressing and holding Eject gives you the sound of the eject motor "trying" to remove the disc?
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When I hold in the "eject" button, I hear a brief 'motor' sound and the message "CD Reset" comes into view.
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Please unplug the system from power, then press and hold the power button on the system itself (not the remote), for 15 seconds and release. Wait a minute, then while pressing and holding Eject, plug the system back into power. Continue to hold eject until the disc ejects, or for 20 seconds- whichever comes first . Let me know what happens please.

Sorry, nothing happened. Want me to repeat?
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Did the machine make the eject noise when you pressed and held eject- or was there no response?
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It made the eject noise. (And I just tried again.)
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Okay please try that up to three more times, as it's our only hope on a user level to correct it. Also can you please tell me when/how this occurred? Was it working fine and then stopped, or was it un-used for a period of time prior to this?
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I"ve now tried it a total of three times. Can you tell me why the "CD Reset" message comes up?
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
That is a general error code- simply meaning the system cannot play the disc. Can you please tell me when/how this occurred? Was it working fine and then stopped, or was it un-used for a period of time prior to this?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yes, I was using the radio, and three days ago tried inserting a CD. I'mnot sure of the prior CD disc history. I hadn't used it for a long time.
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Okay, please check this FAQ from Cambridge Soundworks and see if you can correct the issue: Reset for SoundWorks Radio CD 745i or SoundWorks Radio CD 740Step1: Unplug unit for approximately 10 minutesStep2: Plug unit back in and then press and hold the CD IN button until the screen reads CD RESET.Sometimes if the CD does not respond, pull the plug and re-apply power within 15 seconds. Sometimes a completely discharged state casues a lockup of the CD subsystem.

Did you have any luck?
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. I'm sorry.
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Okay and unfortunately this indicates a hardware failure in the unit that requires service.
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
This indicates that the disc mechanism has one or more parts that are out of spec (usually capacitors, or a gear will dry up preventing the unit from operating normally). I would suggest giving CS a call (I know they don't build AV equipment anymore- but they still may have repair service in place): Cambridge Soundworks: 1-***-***-**** If not then you can also try the following link to locate a repair shop in your area: www.stereorepair.com I'm sorry for the bad news on this one and wish there were a quick fix. If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work. You can follow up at any time, at no additional cost.
