Question about Panasonic RX-D11 Cassette/CD Boombox
CDs won't turn on platter and don't read. I don't have a screw driver long enough to take apart the unit. I figure there's probably a little elastic that's popped off under the platter which could be replaced. Thanks for any assistance.
I fixed the CD player on my Aiwa CSD-TD49! The CD would spin a bit, but the counter stayed at 0:00 with no sound. Open the unit carefully by removing the six screws on the back, and one on the bottom (all have arrows pointing to them.) There is an antenna wire on the left side, and some more on the right side. You should be able to pull the rear section back enough to shift it to the left. Look at the unit from the rear left side. There is a small white adjustable potentiometer or variable resistor. Mine started out in an almost horizontal position, and through turning it clockwise almost a quarter turn, fixed the CD player. I can't tell you exactly what this did, but it worked. It was a little hard to put the unit back together, but just be gentle and patient, and you'll get it back into one piece. Hope this helps!

NO NO NO NO NO NO dont be sticking a screw driver where you dont know where its going!!!! Theres no belt under the turntable as its a direct drive motor. It the platter dosent turn then that means that the laser is not focusing on the disc. This could a combination of five differant things. First is a simple one as the lens may need cleaning. Try first by using a good lens cleaning disc. Second make sure the slider that the lens is attached to is all the way back to the platter as sometimes there is a small belt that drives the slider assy via a worm gear and that belt goes bad alot as the worm gear i've seen get gunked up with air and dirt. Third is the platter its self . It may have slipped down to close to the lens and it wont focus. Forth could be the motor drive curcuit is defective . Coulkd be a bad motor control ic or the b+ going to the curcuit. and finally but not least could be a bad laser assy. If this is bad you might as well buy a new unit unless you can install one your self but be warned if you do you will need to alighn the new PU assy for tracking and focus gains as well as rf azmuth and laser power. Good luck I hope this put a little lite on the subject for ya.

The solution #3 worked perfect for my Sony CFD-S200. My device wasn't detecting the CDs and showing on the screen "no cd" I followed the instructions of the solution #3 and now works perfect. Thanksyou very much.

Aiwa CSD-TD901 - CD player not spinning up. My solution.
It appears that for me, two problems occurred at once.
1) The interlock switch was faulty. Cleaning the contacts fixed this but still the spindle motor was not moving.
2) The laser was too far in on the track positions keeping the CD from spinning up. With the power unplugged, I manually rotated the track gears very gently to move the laser all the way to the outside position.
After reconnecting the power, the laser moved to the correct inner position, the CD spun up again for the first time since failing, and now plays music just fine.
I hope this helps someone else.

The Sony CD player (CFD-S26) won't spin and therefore it doesn't play. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

I had a similar problem with my Sony CDP-715 player.
With or without a inserted cd there would be no spin and in the screen only a "zero" would appear (not "no disk") in both situations.
With the unit unplugged I gently made the lens assembly go all the way out position, by gently spinning the white plastic gear adjacent.
Then I turned the unit on and the lens assembly would drive to its normal position at the center.. after doing this 2 or 3 times I heard some click sound as the laser was returning to sector zero and that time it went all the way, then the unit started working normally again.
Probably dirt buildup or lack of lubrication or just wear...
Hopefully this wonderfull machine will still have a 2nd life

At first I was using a CD-RW, I tried a different CD-R and it worked...apparently this is an older player and 48x CD's work.

Could also be that the lid/catch is not closing properly, or warn/ The motor does not spin un;ess the lid is secured properly

This error "disc error",
"no disc present" or " can\'t read cd". This all error are
related to lens problem. If the lens is dirty or if the lens is got cracked or
if the lens is getting blocked then it can happen. The lens is very thin glass
material. You can say the lens is the "eye" of the unit. If the eye
is dirty then it will not see the object. The unit needs to be opened carefully
and this lens has to be checked. If any dust is collected clean it. Using the
cd lens cleaner helps, but if the dust is got stuck hard or if its any other
internal part then the lens cleaner will not help. If the lens is got cracked
then the lens assembly has to be replaced.
You can use dry tissue to clean the lens. once the unit is opened. ------------ ------------- In most of the cases, this problem is not related to cd.But still get the cd checked in any other player too, this will confirm the fault. Also try other various cds in the boombox cd player and confirm. But if the cds not playing in other player too then its faulty cd.But this is very rare. Most probably the fault is related to boom box cd player. In the boom box cd player unit there are two main parts. One is cd spinning motor and other is cd reading lens(its also called "EYE" of the cd player).But many times the cd spins internally and does not play. If you can hear the noise of cd spin inside then its lens problem and not the motor. But if there is no spin noise in the unit then both lens and motor are to be checked. The motor is not spinning because its short/blocked or its connections are got loose. It has to be checked. The lens is not reading the cd, because its got dirty or its got cracked and faulty. The boom box cd player lens is made up of thin glass and its very delicate. Many a times dust gets collected on the lens, so the lens stops reading the cd and it do not play. Some times there is no dirt on lens but it gets cracked, if by mistake any pressure is applied on the unit or up-side down cd is placed in the tray or internal short circuit has occurred. These are few possibilities of lens not working. But in most cases its dirty lens causing this problem. SO open the tray by pressing the eject button, then unplug the unit from main power outlet, by keeping the cd tray open. Then take air blower and blow air in the unit. Please remove, if there is any cd in the tray while blowing air. Just blow air for few minutes. Then take a dry tissue and clan the cd placing tray externally and then reconnect the power and see, if that is helping or not. If the problem is same as before, then disassemble the unit and clean the lens manually by hand using dry tissue paper and then see if its helping. But take care while cleaning the lens with dry tissue you doesn't apply too much pressure on lens or any other parts. Also before removing any screw to disassemble the unit. Take a marker with you ready. Just mark the position of parts and screws before removing. If you have a cell phone with web cam in it then take a photo of the internal parts before moving any parts. Disassembly is not very hard but reassembling is not easy. So this pictures and marks with help you for reassembly. ----------But if lens is cracked internally then the lens assembly has to be replaced. If motor wires are loose then you can easily get it re-soldered by soldering machine. You can get it replaced from local cd /dvd player repair center. They have these parts with them. --------------- This should help. Thanks. Helpmech.
