Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Fixed my friends Azur by swapping new laser pickup, KSS-213C cost only 5.76 € here in Finland.
Much less than I was estimating...

Thanks for your tutorial!

Top cover screws are T6 (Torx), didn't had that small bit so I used normal 1.7 mm flat driver.

Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Thanks so much for the easy fix, friend. This has been bugging me for months and I finally got around to fixing it today. Your tutorial was perfect. Now every disk is reading and... good tunes again! Appreciate the help. - Goof

NOW, if I could only figure out how to get that LCD display panel to brighten up. The version 1 unit doesn't have the bright button on the remote, or anywhere else. I KNOW it can be brighter because I've seen it happen once in a while but I can't figure out what triggered it- and it doesn't stick. Let me know if you have any ideas...

Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Hello All,

Fantastic, resourceful and very friendly forum! Good Job!
I was searching Internet and came across to the fix for my problem (hopefully) . Azur 640c slides back and forth, as soon as I place the CD in the tray.

Does anybody have post #14 pictures?

Thank you.
Aram

Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Hi there,

New here.

Just purchased an Azur 640C V2, second hand, 75 euros (about 100 bucks if I'm correct).

When I insert a CD, it either just opens up again, or gives an error ("door").

No warranty off course...

Anybody ?

Update : when I lift the part that sits on the lens with 2 screws (sorry, noobie), the CD starts playing so I guess I've found the problem. When I close it up again, it sits too tight on the lens so it doesn't play anymore...

Anybody with the same problem? Found a way to solve this?

Thx

Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Dang! I last posted on this two years ago when I thought everything was fixed by way of this great thread. It turns out the fix only worked for a short time and then the dreaded Open --> Close --> Open nonsense started happening again, first sporadically and now pretty much all the time.

BUT! I found a wacky clue that does help resolve the issue during the event. If I lift the entire front of the deck about an inch (4cm) or so and let it drop (yes, drop hard!) the "Close" display will change, load the track info and the disc is ready for the Play button. From that point on it will play the disc normally until the next disc is inserted (or the door is opened for whatever reason). Then, the lift and drop is required again to get the loaded disc to be recognized. Seems like a mechanical issue with something not working until there's a downward force applied via the drop.

Ideas anyone?????

Re: How to fix a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C

Old thread, still hoping to find an answer. Your issue problem sounds similar to my issue: "If I lift the entire front of the deck about an inch (4cm) or so and let it drop (yes, drop hard!) the "Close" display will change, load the track info and the disc is ready for the Play button. From that point on it will play the disc normally until the next disc is inserted (or the door is opened for whatever reason).
