Many of the custom IC's used in CED players are no longer available unless you
happen upon a dealer who still has some New Old Stock. But the DAXI chip is one
of the best custom chips to have fail, as the same IC was used in all RCA players.
I'd recommend getting a broken CED player off Ebay and having the dealer de-solder
the chip and install it in your player (or depending on cost just get a working
player). If the digital counter in a player begins to count up when a disc is
loaded, the DAXI chip is good regardless of what other problems the player may
have. The DAXI IC is a CMOS chip, so antistatic procedures must be followed when
working on it. For a cross-reference on the IC's used in RCA CED players go to

Gee, I have been a lurker on the CED list for about 6 months or so, and I was very surprised to see so many requests for a list of titles and the model numbers of the stuff I am selling. I am working on the full inventory, it looks like I will have to unbox everything to sell it. The working inventory (I have gotten through one box of discs so far) is available @ -- again the sale is available @ Which I will add a link to the inventory to as soon as I finish it.
