Belt for DBX D5 CD player
« on: March 07, 2020, 11:07:33 AM »
Looked online for answer to sticky CD drawer issue and I think Jim also told me that I
need  a 30mmID x 2mm rubber o ring  Hate to order 50 from Amazon but its less than $4.

Any of you repair guys have an spare one laying around?

thanks

I'll check my bin later on, I could have one. Few years ago I got a multi pack from Advanced to fix the bearing on a Dual. So you could try an auto parts store or even an old school hardware store.

I found an incredible assortment of o rings at the hardware store on Green tree Road near the parkway entrance.  I needed a couple to fix a Laserdisc player drawer and found what I needed, cheap too.

Repair update.    I talked with Jim Pittsburgh yesterday morning before the Dow plunged  another thousand points. (It was already down 2000.)    He gave some useful advice about replacing the belt.  I removed the belt from the DBX and, after picking up my supplies at the state store yesterday, I went to the Busy Beaver in Irwin and and found a similar size O ring.  Got home and removed a gear on the player and installed the ring.  Works like new.  The D5 is now back in service! 

Thanks again, Jim

Appreciated the call and glad I could be of a little help. Congrats on the D5. The only thing I did differently is I changed out the op-amps. It does make a difference.
