SD/A 490t will not power on

Have an SD/A 490t that was working perfectly and suddenly froze and went blank and now will not power up. It seems to briefly bump the platter each time I press the power button but will not come on. No evidence of any burnt components that I can see. Is there an internal fuse that might need replacement? Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your 490t. I don't know much about trouble shooting or repairing of them but I am sure you will get a few to chime in with suggestions.

Thanks. It is actually a 390t. I found an internal fuse but it was not blown, so I packed it up and sent it to Rita. I appreciate the reply.

No... Send it to me... :lol: I didn't know Rita does CD players as well. Is there anything they will not fix there?

Rita does only amps and preamps. She does not have parts for cd players. Roland I think has all the parts for them.

Reese has one of these, and that happened to him when a disk slipped out of the carousel and jammed.

Great point BillD...I had a changer do just about the same thing. Worth taking the top off and giving a look!! 8)

Re: SD/A 490t will not power on

I opened it up before sending to remove all the discs and to look for anything obvious. None of the discs were out of place. I called and spoke to Rita before sending it and I'm fairly sure I identified the component. She didn't tell me not to send it, so I hope you are wrong about her not fixing CD players. The post announcing her shop on this board says they repair all Carver audio equipment. It should be arriving there any time now, so I'll let you know

Thanks.

Re: SD/A 490t will not power on

I was under the impression that she did not do CD players. Though I have been known to be wrong on items like this before. She might have gotten in parts to repair them. As far as I knew Roland was the only one who had any parts left.

Yeah, it happened when I was tilting the CD changer to get it in or out of the stack....but mine powered on and the display lit, it just wouldn't function beyond that. A close call with a simple cure - pop the top and remove the errant disc! I was careful to remove all disks the next time I wanted to move it, believe me! (Luckily I had a spare 390t in case....heheheh)

My single disc 490t's haven't had a problem thus far (knock on wood)
