Re: ND message

It might be an older CD player that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability... If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.

Disk exchange system seems to function,changing CD's, but does not recognize a CD when s disk is selected and displays the error message "no disk selected"


The only thing you can do is clean the lens of the CD player. It's possible that dust has got inside blocking it. If that doesn't work, it will need to be taken to a repair shop as the lens might be damaged or an electronic fault.

GE Spacemaker, Model 7-5295 the cd light blinks and the cd spins but it does not play. After a short period of time nd flashes.


ND means "No Disc". It's probably a newer CD - one that's been copied, perhaps? It's got a format newer than what the CD player on that unit will recognize. Try an older CD.

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play


RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

The CD player does not work


It sounds like a mis-aligned laser or faulty laser unit. Either way unless you have experience of fixings cd players yourself its a job for the technicians. Good luck.

Aiwa xr-ms5 cd recognition problem


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean. Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function. good luck :-)
