Sega CDX stop spinning after 30 seconds

Sega CDX stop spinning after 30 seconds

Postby portnoi88 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 6:34 pm

Hello,
I've bought a Sega CDX on Ebay. The customs opened the package and made real damage. They broke 2 sega-cd boxes and they might have caused damage on the CDX.

I've tested the CDX today. It plays Genesis games no problem. But it won't play CDs. I get power, the CD will start to spin briefly, the game kinda starts i think but then the lens starts struggling and then stop.
I don't have the official power supply so I used the Genesis one.
I don't think that is the problem because i tried an audio CD with batteries, it will spin a bit and show the "01" on the display, plays very good but after 30 seconds it just stops.

I've made this video:

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I don't have any soldering experience or the equipment to disolder the copper shielding.
Is there other way to take it off? Is it ok if if broke it?

I've tried again with Sonic CD.
It takes some time to start the game, the lens starts struggling and after 30 seconds the CD stops, but the game keeps playing with sound effects but no music until the end of the level. Then all i get is a black screen.

And cannot play backups.

Those systems are notorious for needing maintenance. You should send it out for repair.

The cdx really needs its original Power supply - or one with the right amperage.

It might work fine with audio cds, but the games will demand more power from it.

The genesis 2 power supply will fit the hole, but It is weaker than necessary!
