Re: won't play CDs

I have had the same problem, my solution is to never buy another RCA product. I used mine for target practice.

Re: won't play CDs

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. Sorry i cant help you more.

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds

Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

I cannot get the CD disc doors to open or close. There are no discs in there, as I remember. The radio and cassettes both are operable but I can play CDs. I love this unit, even though it is old,...

Sounds like you've got a problem with either the Drive Motor, Drive Controller or Drive Belt.

It could be an easy fix but it depends on the where the fault is.

Does it make any noise or effort to open the doors?

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.

First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

Cd system does not recognise the cds on playing deck.

The unit is a 3 disc changer usually when these kind of problems occur there are quite a number of possible solutions.
When i faced such a problem it was due to the current being low. Then it was 200 volts instead of 220 so check yours and determine if the current is adequate otherwise you can get a voltage regulator.
On the other hand this happens when the lens is dirty or the CD is not properly placed but the second option is usually an off case.
Generally to solve the problem take out the unit from the mains for about 20 mins.
If you have the technical know how you can open the unit and try to clean around the CD tray. This should be done with utmost care as damageable components are around the tray(this is not compulsory if you cant).
After about 20 mins pug the unit back
Next get a CD lens cleaner and run it in the system to clean the lens of the unit.
put in a single disc and attempt to play. At this point the unit should function fine.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

CDs won't play RCA RS2651

I think the laser is mis-aligned or the laser unit needs replacing. If you are able to check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

CD not reading CDs

Sounds like a dirty lens or laser failure.

Seek professional help.
The lasers are not as expensive as they used to be, get an estimate.
