DTL100-DTL200 repair

Post by madmike46 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 5:48 pm

Can anyone tell me who repairs Carver DTL100 and DTL200 CD players. I have one of each, the DTL100, I know needs new belts and the DTL200 also needs belts but there are other issues with this one, like it will only read discs maybe 5% of the time if I'm lucky. Any help is much appreciated, I'd like to keep these 2 units alive if everyone knows what I mean.

Thanks again :)

The belts are an easy fix. Here is a great source for belts. The 200 problems can be a number of things. I think a belt is used for the tracking on these. Open it up and take a look at the transport.If the belt is sloppy, that will cause a read error. Also clean the laser.

Thanks I'll have to do that to the 200, also have to check out the belt lengths on the 100. Last time I had the covers off I thought the drive mechanisms were the same. I'll have to do that on the weekend, when no one is around to bother me. :)
