Multi-disk or single disc player has only one (1) lens (reader), so you can use those commercially available cd player lens cleaner. ( a disc with tiny brushes in it.)

04 accord cd skip

If it's a stand alone unit meaning it's located other than in the dash, probably the trunk? What will happen to CD players that makes this happen is the shaft that the pick up laser rides along while playing will end up becoming covered in tiny dust and dirt particles which will cause the lube that is on there to dry up and it will not track smoothly. If you've noticed that it does it at about the same place on the disks . Usually the beginning to middle will show these problems most. Also check to see if the unit is properly installed, they have directional dampening block in them and have to be configured to absorb shocks. If It's doing it in either in dash or Outboard the best thing to do is to take it apart and re-lubricate those shafts that catty the laser and also clean off the eye of the laser with clean filtered water and a microfiber cleaning cloth or tipped cleaner. I'm sure this will improve the reproduction greatly and also remedy the poor tracking that is caused from age and being outside with dust and dirt flying everywhere. The best type of lubricant to use is Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline applied with a Q-Tip to all moving parts.

My cd changer wont play the cd.. it works meaning it seems to be spinning around but just suddenly says check disk. help !! i need music to drive !!! thanks

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

The cd player says error and will not play any cd's

A lot of times, cd players will show error, so like all of us, is start putting in all kind of other cd's even music we don't care about, like buck owen's and the bosby twins. Been there done that. Sounds like you have done everything at your end. So, here is what you do and most likely it will solve the problem. At almost any radio shack, best buy store, or stereo shops, they all have little Cd cleaning kits, it goes in like a regular Cd but cleans it, pretty easy and simple to use. Some times its just like putting a couple drops on a blank Cd with some rubbing alcohol and letting it cycle through for a few minutes. I hope it helps, please let me know, so you can get back to rock'n and drive'n

My 6 cde changer will no longer play cds, just gives me an error message that says check disk

hi, the only thing you can try is go out and buy a cd lense cleaning cd then put this into your cd player this will then clean the lense and should hopefully solve your problem.
If this dont solve the problem then their is a good chance that the laser has packed up and would need replacing the problem with this is that the cost of repair would be more than buying a new one so unless the cleaning cd works your best option would be to replace the stereo

Car cd player says no disc but there is a disk

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Bad disc error on cd player

I'm sure these are good CD's that you are putting in (i.e. not scratched) but are they CD's that were burned from a computer? Some disk burned from computers cannot be read by older p[layers. If not than I would by a laser cleaning kit. This is a specials disk with small bristles attached to it. You add cleaning solution to some or one but not all. Then insert the disk in the player. This will clean the laser lens. The kits are cheap to buy but harder to find these days, check on-line but some department stores might have them. Check to see if the disk is spinning up by listening closely. Either way if cleaning the lens doesn't work you might have to replace the whole unit. Although, I suggest at that point to hard wire a aux input through the antenna wire. That way you can plug in a cheap MP3 player that can hold many of your CD's and play through your stereo.

My car cd player wont play my cds it just spits them back out.

Either the loading mechanism has failed or the lens of the laser is dirty, have you tried cleaning it with one of the CD changer cleaning disks? Try to clean it first, if the CD cleaning disc won't load then you will have to have it repaired.
