    Any help on this please!!!

    My stereo has stopped working. Its only a cheap stereo but it fits where
    it needs to if you know what I mean.

    Basically, the CD doesnt spin anymore and I just get an error message.
    The tape deck doesnt do anything anymore also and the radio just gives a
    buzzing sound like it is just picking up noise.

    Any ideas on what could cause this before I start looking for a new
    stereo?

    You did not mention a model number, therefore common faults cannot be
    mentioned to you.


    Generically speaking:

    Troubleshoot and service the power supply to start with. This is not
    something that can be fixed over emails. You will have to take voltage
    readings, trace out the circuits, and determine the defective components. It
    is possible that the power supply may have been damaged by some other parts
    failing. It is also common that the output stage components fail, thus
    causing faults as well.

    In the CD player, it is common that the spindle motor, and ribbon cables
    fail. The laser assemblies also sometimes fail, but more rarely.

    For this type of unit, you may find that many of the replacement parts are
    difficult to find. The manufactures don't normally support after warranty
    service, unless the unit is a very expensive one.

    You may have to send it out for service. This can be complicated to service.
    If your unit is what I am thinking it is, with the CD and or cassette player
    combined, the cost to service it can easily exceed its replacement value.
    These units have a life expency of about 3 to 5 years at the very maximum.
