Re: Still not working
Is it possible for you to see the lens while the disc in on the platform or turntable while its tring to see the disc?? if you can manage this see if the lens moves up and down . If it does then the units trying to focus but cannot. as it needs to focus on the surface of the disc to reconize the disc or to start it spinning. If its trying to but dosent it could be the spindle motor or the control curcuit, the laser its self but not likely as alot of repair peeps blame the pickup assy but motre then 3/4 that are returned for warrantee replacements have been found not to be defective, the turntable could have slipped down, or it needs a foucus offset or focus gain alighnment. In any case your gonna need to probably take this to a good audio repairperson to see what the treue problem is. Good Luck

I have the same system. I've had no trouble until a year ago, then the system got particular about when it wanted to play DVDs. I've also used lens cleaner to no avail. It plays some DVD's but plays all CD's and some copies. It has given me good service but cost me a lot of money. I hope there is a simple solution to this.
I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.
if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.
they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.
bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.
I had the SAME problem, and all that was needed was for the laser lens to be cleaned. They have laser lens cleaning discs at Best Buy (that's where I got mine) and probably just about any electronics store that sells/repairs DVD players-- mine cost about $16. You pop it in, it spins and cleans the laser lens, and then your discs are able to be read properly. Hope it helps-- it worked for me!
Hi, Do you mean DVD jumps / skips forward in playback? If yes, please clean optical laser lens in player. It sounds optical lens has thin layer of dust and causing ' tracking error ' in playback. Put CD Lens Cleaner disc in player and press play to clean optical lens by cleaning disc and if problem still exist, need to clean lens manually with good quality cotton bud. Hope this will solve your problem. Thanks.
the problem may be two fold
1 the optical pickup assembly's lens may be dirty and needs to be cleaned (donot use any liquid to clean the lens just a soft cotton swab will do)
2 the optical pickup assembly has failed and can no longer read discs (if the laser or sensors inside the optic fail it is "blind" and can not "see" the disc)
start with the cleaning.
