CD player not working

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 have split the speakers and attached them to my speakers on to my boat dock down on the lake. Will that make a big difference? I can hear the cd's changing even shows on the front of the unit. But no sound. Do you have any suggestions? Thanking you in advance for all of your support. I do not know the number of my unit. Where would I find the number on my unit?

    The cd problem started as a intermittent problem first it would spin but not read any of the disc that i would play.Then it stopped working all together. I carefully took it apart and visually inspected it. I don"t know what part is defective? How costly is it to replace the cd component of this radio? Their were 4 screws holding the whole circuit board assembly in place with a nine pin wiring harness plug into it. If i could find the whole assembly as i took it off i will replace it my self. or maybe someone else might have a suggestion other than having to pay $50.00 and postage to send it out for repair!! HELP!

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.

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.

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

Wurlitzer 1015 cd player that wont read the cds bot the drive motor spin real fast ???

That usually means the Laser can not pick up the CD surface. I have not worked on Wurlitzer CD but have worked on hundreds of other units and the technology is the same. It could be the platter distance is too far from the pickup or that one of the six laser pickup has burned out to allow correct tracking. There is a Focus OK signal that has to be satisfied first, then spin up and data reading of the TOC. f it can not do that they may spin wildly.

The CD player in my Pure Legato 2 system won;t register CDs, the last few times I listened to CDs they skipped a bit, now it won't play them at all, it just reads 'no CD'.

I have fixed this problem in 2 Legatos. But don't attempt this if you have no experience with electrical equipment.
You need to open the case (4 screws deeply recessed in the back panel, 3 screws securing the speaker terminals and the phono socket block, and the nut and plastic washer holding the aerial socket. Gently ease the rear panel back enough to access the rear of the CD mechanism. Under the CD laser assembly carriage, there is a small trim pot (with a yellow cross-head adjuster screw). I found a small anticlockwise adjustment got the CD player working again. (I assume this trimmer increases the gain of the optical sensor amp.) Secure the rear panel before powering on again to test. It may require a little trial and error to recover the full functionality of the CD.
Good luck.

My cds are stuck in the player. They won't play or eject. The message reads "cd error"

Hi Texasgirl826,
There is nothing I can tell you to do that won`t damage the player.

I have one sugestion, go to a shop that installs car stereo, don`t go into the store, go to the bay where the workshop is and ask one of the installers real nice like if he could take it out for you, I`m sure he would.
It is a bit tricky to do it, but it can be done, without having to remove the deck and taking it apart.
Good luck.

What probably happened is that some CDs fell off their tracks and are blocking the main wheelhouse from turning. To solve this you will need a philips head screw driver. First unplug the machine. You will need to remove the top of the unit (which slides off towards to the back) after removing the 9 screws (2 top, 4 side, and 3 top back). Once you slide off the cover, you will expose the wheelhouse and you should see the CDs that fell off. Simply take the cds out. Once you have taken out all the CD that came off the tracks, slide the cover back on and screw in the 9 screws. The CD player should work again. This worked for me and hopefully will work for anyone encountering this error.

My Sony D808K portable CD player will not play a CD. When the door is shut the player should turn the CD and show info on the LCD display, but that doesn't happen. If I press the play button, it tries to...

It's dead. Mine did the same thing, but I noticed also that the disc never spun up fast enough to be read successfully. I'm guessing that the motor just lost its oomph. I imagine that one way or another it's fixable, but with portables so cheap and a player this old not being able to read anything but manufactured CDs, i.e., no CD-R, CD-RW, etc., it's not worth it. And mine was old enough to vote! :)

Turntable won't turn

There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.

Getting errors reading the first (data) track on mixed-mode CD, what can i do? get error message "TABLE ERROR"

The CD Player platter does not spin or displays Table Error.
Follow this procedure when the platter of a CD Changer does not spin or displays Table Error.
  1. Open the door to the unit.
  2. Press the center button in the Jog Dial, and attempt to remove all the CD's in the unit. NOTES:
    • Verify that all the discs that were installed in the unit are removed. If all the discs do not come out, the unit will need service.
    • If the player is not operating correctly, reinstalling CDs may damage the CDs.

  3. Attempt to rotate the platter with all discs removed. If the platter rotates, install a few discs to verify operation.
  4. If the platter does not spin when the unit is empty, service will be required.
Also are you getting any other specific error codes, if so, please let me know what they are.

Please get back to me and let me know any other specifics.
Please don't forget to rate this. Thank you!

I have an aiwa nsx 5200 mini system the cd player broke

Soooooooo many people have complained about this system not reading discs properly, yet the solution is incredibly simple. All you need to do is calibrate the lens, and you can do this without even opening the stereo! Here's how:

With the stereo all unplugged, turn it around so the back is facing you.

Now use a flashlight and, looking through the grating on the back, approximate where you think the cd lens mechanism would be. You should see 2 8-pin connector wires side by side (one red and one white) and to their right a small black circle screw type thing.

Using a screw driver, turn the screw thing about 1/10 of a revolution clockwise.

Plug in, and test with a clean cd. If nothing happened, repeat the procedure turning the screw thing in tiny increments (don't over do it.) Eventually, the cd player should recognise the cd. Keep fine tuning and testing until you've found the "sweet spot" where it recognizes and plays cds optimally.

Overall, you should NOT have to turn any more than a full revolution, and even half a revolution is pushing it. What you are really doing by turning this screw is fine tuning the "data reading point" of the laser. Too close and it will focus on the area between the cd and the lens, causing failure to recognize the disc. Too far and it will focus past the data perhaps recognizing the disc but not being able to read it. I believe the major problem with these players is that as they settle in, the area between the lens and cd changes. This would cause a gradual degrading in performance until the player finally failed to recognise any data at all (which is exactly how mine went personally.) There isnt a problem with the quality of the lens itself, therefore it is very fixable!

I have heard that all 3cd Aiwa Mini-systems share this problem so, as long as the calibration tuning screw is exposed through the grating on the back, this fix should work for any of the Aiwa mini-systems with this particular problem. If the screw isnt exposed, it is still possible to get at by opening and dismantling the player. (Unfortunately, i did not originally notice that the screw was accesible through the grating, so i went about pulling the entire system apart and wasting hours of my life. You can thank me later for saving you this tedious trouble as you're listening to cds on your newly fixed player ;-) )

If this doesn't work, or doesn't fix the problem completely, try cleaning the lens. You can do this by either by using a cd lens cleaner (looks like a cd with a brush built into it) or opening up the stereo and using a soft cloth on the lens. You may also want to try putting the screw back to its starting point and using the same procedure but turning the screw counter-clockwise. (I personally had to turn clockwise but who knows, maybe your player settled in differently.)

As for the mechanism itself, i have no idea. I did notice, however, that the lifting mechanism sometimes picks the cd up off-centered causing failure to play. You can semi-fix this by holding the stereo at an angle while it picks up the cd or placing it off-centered in the tray. Its annoying, but it works :)
