Dead laser, I'm afraid. Have just one like it and have measured the lens with a leader laser power meter and it barely gets 0.01mW....buy another CDM4 for it !

CDC-655 was put in storage (in orig box) and brought back out and plugged in. It loads each CD and fails to read each one. The lighted numbers go out, one by one, as it fails to read them.


Hi,

This seems to be a "Dust on Lens" problem. No issues... It happens when you keep your CD/DVD players unattended for a long period of time. Even if packed well enough, dust/moisture does tend to gather on the lens and cause this type of an irritating problem.

If you have a lens cleaning CD (if not, go buy one) then just insert it and let it spin regardless of whether or not it reads it. The spinning action will clean off any finely deposited dust particles on the lens. Repeat th process till the Lens Cleaner CD starts playing its audio. If this happens then all your other CDs should read. One more thing, make sure that the motor is indeed spinning. How can you know???

1. Buy listening carefully for a whirring sound the moment you put in your CD/DVD
2. By feeling for minor vibrations on the front panel (CD tray front cover)
3. Putting in a CD/DVD with a label straight as you can read it and see if it comes out differently on ejecting it. I hope you understand what I mean...

If this doesn't then it could be a blown lens circuit or a dead drive motor. In that case your player needs to be taken to a service center.

Hope it answers most of your query. Good luck.

Disc is not working. Error message No disc


Try cleaning both the disk and the lens of the dvd player. Sometimes even a little bit of dust can make your dvd player go ballistic. Brands like Sony,Philips and LG are very sensitive. If anything else fails, you can take it to a repair shop to find out if the lens isn't cracked or the LED isn't responding while trying to read the disk.

Disc not being read - reading reading reading


That looks like a lens problem, when there is a fault of different kind you usually get an error message.

If you use a CD cleaner , use a good one , the $2 CD cleaners do not work, you need a kit with cleaning solution. Check here.

Run the CD cleaner a couple of times more , and see if this work.

If it does not work , the unit must be taken apart, and the lens cleaned directly with a cotton stub and cleaning solution, or isopropyl alcohol.

If the lens is defective, then the lens pick up should be replaced.

If you trust yourself enough to open the case w/o breaking stuff, then open it up UNPLUGGED, locate the laser lens (small,clear,plastic) gently clean the lens with a swab of lens cleaner for glasses.
Also clean the chrome runners that the laser assembly tracks on.

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.
