    I have an old mini hi-fi system where the CD skips sometimes, but the radio and the speakers are fine. I don’t want it to end up in landfill, but I don’t need it anymore. a) do you think you might be able to fix it, and b) do you know of any charities or other worthy causes that might want it?

      Hi Derek –
      Once a CD player starts doing that, or failing to recognise a disk, I think it’s usually terminal unless it’s just a matter of dust on the lens. I think maybe the laser ages after a while since it packs a lot of power into a minute space. I think the best thing might be to offer it as it is on Freegle or Freecycle. Maybe someone would be glad of it as a radio. I agree, not good to send it to landfill unless there’s no other option.
      Best regards – Philip
