    God I wish I could help because mine started doing the same thing, now it won't even turn! I'm about to throw it against the wall. Actually, when I smacked it, it started working again but only for a few days. Stupid Sharper Image, UH!

Try restarting the whole equipment and see if devices pair together fine on startup.

Do not restart them with the button, that won't reset settings, unplug everything from power for 5 minutes and plug them back.

CD player doesn't play


It's possible the laser lens has been knocked out of alignment. If there's a code after the ERROR message, you may be able to find a solution by reading the manual for the unit - they can often be found online if you don't have one. Good luck!

Extract from your cd player manual:

"This CD player can play normal CDs p/us CD Recordable (CD-R)
and CD Rewriteable (CD-RW) discs. However the playability of CD-RIRW discs
may be affected by the type of software that was used in 'ripping' the tracks from
the original discs and 'burning' the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may
a/so be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for
recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed, this is nof an indication of
any problems with your player."

So try to burn the disc with another software or buy different CD-r.
You also want to make sure that you Burned the tracks as audio files and not MP3 file, because your player can not read MP3s.

Hope this helps.

First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

The usual cause of this is the optical disk itself. Either the media has defects that your player doesn't like, or the codec needed to 'read' the disk is missing or unknown. Try playing a standard DVD from the music store. If that plays ok, you may need to upgrade your firmware. New firmware should be available from the maker's web site.

Since the receiver eventually works, the delay circuit is failing. This is a circuit that allows the power supply to settle down before kicking in the output relay. This prevents the "pop" that was sometimes heard on older units. This should be a simple and inexpensive repair probably requiring the replacement of a couple of small capacitors in that delay/protection circuit.

CD player won't work


Firstly is it burnt or factory cd? Most factory cd players won't play a burnt disk.
If you have a store-made cd and it is not reading that, then the lens inside the player is dirty and needs to be blown out with a can of "airduster"

This is a typical problem when the laser " eye" gets dust on it, unplug the unit and you can try to remove cover and spray the optical pickup "eye' with canned compressed air or other type of optical cleaner found at say like radio shacks, I have solved many disc reading errors with this method
