It wont play when i insert cds into the tray, it just rotates.


hello,if your disc is clean and scratch free than the laser is either too dusty or weak to focus.I suggest you first inspect the disc for flaws,if its ok than you will want to clean the laser .The most efficient way is to remove the cover ,its held down with t8 screws ,than simply take a dry q-tip to the lens and gently rotate it.

When trying to play a cd system says cd not finalized or no cd


being an older model your optic pickup (laser) is most likely getting weak. You would have to find a service manual to obtain the correct part number for replacement. There is a good chance the part is no longer available.

"disc not finalized"


In order for that CD to play, it has to be finalized on the same device that you used to record the CD, be it a computer or a CD recorder. Consult the recorder's directions for instructions on how to finalize the disc - or tell us the model number of the device you did to do the recording, and we can tell you how to finalize the disc.

Volume with Headphones


The unit probably has resistors or a limitor curcuit to limit the amount of audiop going out on the headphones. It could probably be modifyed but it would possiblt burn out the headphones as this is a 280watt peak power unit . Its there so you dont blow out your ears.you could use some wireless self powered headphones as that would solve your problem!! Good Luck
