First try ejecting the disk and unplugging the unit power cord for five minutes.

if that did not work, that probably means you have a lens problem.

Use a dvd lens cleaner kit , like the ones that you see clicking here.

Ifthat does not work, you will need to take apart the unit, access thelens pickup, and clean the lens directly, using isopropyl alcohol and acotton sticks.

I own a technics CD changer Model SL-PD 787. The system powers up showing the disc & track no. but the timer does not count down . and therefore does not play. How can I fix the problem.


Actually it's the other way around. Playback makes the counter move. Did you hit PLAY or try to seek to a track or anything to verify it 'likes' the disc?

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

Walnt play cds, it says reading and then no disk, just got it out of the basement, been down there for about 4 or 5 years barley used and idea whats wrong?


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Hi ! When I start to play a CD , it will only last for about 30 second , then it suddenly stop playing , what is the problem ?Grateful for help.


Either the laser is failing, or the unit is unable to move the laser along the sled.
Try skipping out to track 5 or so and see if it will play there for 30 seconds, or if it errors out trying to even get there.
If it goes to track 5 and keeps playing to the end, then you need to lubricate the chrome bar that the laser sled slides on. White lithium grease is what I recommend here. Remove the old grease first with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol.
While you're in there, GENTLY clean the laser lens with a clean q-tip and rubbing alcohol.

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


Marko,

I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.

Have Kenwood CD UD-405 not used for many years. Will not now play CDs or sometimes a few tracks then cuts out stating *NO DISC". Seems fine electronically. Tried switched on for several days to remove...


Seemed to have solved problem by using lens cleaning disc. Had no effect at first but kept trying it and eventually started working. Many cut outs but kept repeating and eventually played without cut outs.
