Dear CED Users,

I have found that caddies that get stuck in my machine while loading have the 
same problem, a seam on one of the front edges of the caddy is breaking or 

This causes the tray to be pushed up into the caddy and the caddy becomes to 
thick to be retracted out by the machine.

When this occurs, I turn off the power strip the machine is plugged into 
because the on/off button will not work, and load/unload motor will burn out 
if the machine is left on because it will keep trying to turn.

Then I manually extract the caddy after taking the cover off by pushing it 
back into the machine and releasing the hooks that hold the tray and disc in 

After the caddy, tray, and disc are extracted, I tightly tape the seam that 
is splitting with two pieces, one going with the seam and another going across 
the seam. I cut the tape using scissors so that it does not intrude on the 

I then reload the disc and it works fine.

The best and most simple solution is to check the seams on your caddy before 
loading a disc.  Then tape and repair those that are coming apart before 
putting them in the machine.

This is the only loading problem I have had since changing the belt, so the 
problem is not really with the machine but the caddies the discs are in.

Peace.  signed James

Can someone explain to me how to add A/V outputs to a SJT090?


The easiest way to find the test points to use for A/V inputs is via the 
diagram on the inside of the player cover. TP3504 and TP3410 attach to the 
center of the RCA jacks for audio and video. You can tap into one of the 
ground points along the rear of the main circuit board for the outer rim 
ground connection of the RCA jacks.
