Question about Philips Gemini CDJ-20 Top Loading Professional Compact Disc Drive CD Player

Open Question

Non read Hello. My gemini cdj20 was not reading all tracks from disc, then started to only play first few tracks. Now the cd wont go round when inserted and it reads no disc. I tried different cds, turn off and on. I sure its broken but is it worth repairing? I saw some twin cdj for £85. Do you think it will be less than that? Probably needs a new laser and mechanism. They were given to me and they are abit batterd/ old. Many thanks in advance, Tristan

Is having trouble reading or tracking disc.I opened top and while playing disc the tracking mechanism goes out then back in and starts playing where it stopped?


You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

Gemnini cdj20 will not reconize cd. sometime it will play and than just stop. I change cd but it won't ever spin.


Consult the manual, find a cd rom with the exact same specs and take a screw driver and a pair of tweezers to the damn thing. you can do it, don't worry.

Cd/dvd stops reading disc half way then stops.loading tray sticks or has a delay


Disc stops playing due to tracking error from either a dirty source cd or a dirty blank. It is not the machines fault. Clean both discs thoroughly before recording. Even non visible dust can cause a stoppage. My Sony recorder does seem to be a little too sensitive to dust but it normally works fine.

It won't track reliably. It plays OK for the first few tracks of a CD, then has trouble tracking. Finally it just sticks.


Try cleaaning the lead screw that moves the head. Often they get dust particles which jam up the works. REMEMBER that CD's read from the inside tracks outward.

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more

Pioneer cdj 200 wont read discs


Hi, try cleaning the lens with a cleansing disk. if this doesn't produce results, it will confirm a major issue within the lens assembly. you will need to replace the lens assembly in this case. it is unable to track or read in this damaged sate.
