DO NOT BUY. Very disturbing buzzing noise.

DO NOT BUY. When ON the only sound you hear is a BUZZING NOISE which is louder than the music being played. BUZZING is on RADIO mode and on CD mode. DO NOT BUY.

There is no headphone socket Re Dawns question

Headphones do not work on aux in socket. There is definitely no headphone socket. Should there be a digital display when on as I do not have that either

3 Answers

I just bought this at my local store, and, despite what the description says, there is NO headphone socket, which makes the item pretty useless for my purpose. There is a AUX IN socket (why?!), but there is definitely no AUX OUT, which is what is needed for headphones. I will be returning this item.

Bought KW -80C yesterday. The only way to turn it off is to use AUX switch on off switch (no 17) has no effect .

Does this mean the batteries are still connected as I bought the player for out door use and do not want the hassle of disconnecting the batteries every time I use it? Reply ASAP would be really appreciated Many thanks

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can advise in order to turn the Argos Value Range Portable CD Player – Silver off you need to move the function switch to the middle off position. The function switch is located on the left hand side of the player if you are looking directly it from the front. If you are still unable to turn the Argos Value Range Portable CD Player – Silver off then the item may be faulty, please contact Argos customer services to resolve your issue.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
