Re: mp3 player doesn't work

According to panasonic only the SC-EN27 out of this series can play mp3's. It looks just like the SC-EN25 you posted on its page. In case you have the 27, this is what the manual has to say: ? You may not be able to play MP3 if you have copied a multi-session disc that has no data between sessions. ? When creating a multi session disc, it is necessary to close the session. ? The amount of data on the disc is too small. Set the amount of data to greater than approximately 5 MB. Hope you work it out. If you want you should be able to connect it to an external mp3 player. Good luck

Radio works fine. cd player wont read discs in either of four slots. Message - Disc error.

This can often be solved by opening the cover and blowing on the optical head to displace dust and any debris that is fouling between the optics and the actuator that controls the head position. It isn't fool proof but will fix perhaps 40% of units. Take a can of air duster (aerosol blower) and blow the little pick-up form the distance of about 1 inch. It will bounce around in the wind but don't blow to hard. Give it a gentle blast and then try the player. If it doesn't work then try again this time but blow harder.

Sony cmt-ne5 cd reads no disc

Then it is time to replace this player the Laser reader is defective or the disk doesn't spin due to a defective drive motor, in most cases they don't even sell parts for these players and they are not repaired unless under warranty.

My SONY MHC GNZ 7D shows please wait in the DVD position.Other functions such as Tape,FM Tuner etc are working fine .Please help.Question from N.Shankar

Check it with an MP3 disc and a viedo disc. Cehck both of them are reading well and OK. Check with new CDs. If these discs works on and the problem occurs only with DVD discs, check it with other DVD discs. Some writion formats may not recogonized by the set. If the problem occurs with all discs, just put in a lens cleaning disc into the player, and pley it at least three times. This disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare parts at your town. If after cleaning, the problem perists, the Laser Pickup Unit should be replaced with same type and number. If you are experienced to disassemble and reassemble the CD mechanism, you can do it by yourself at home. It is a skilled work. If you are not experienced, get this set repaired either by Sony Authorised Service Center or by any well experienced service techinican you know well. OK.

The disc player suddenly stops playing and says no disc even if there is disc on the shelf

Your disc player has a "lens or eye" that reads the electronic signal from your disc and transform that signal into a video image and audio sound. The reason why it stops playing and says there's no disc inside is because it fails to read the signal. The lens or eye may have acquired dirt that's blocking the signal. Try to open your disc player and locate the lens located on the center of the rotating disc holder. It is very easy to locate because it is directly under the disc. It is round, very small and made of glass. Get a cotton ear bud or just a small piece of cotton, moisten it with alcohol, or nail polish remover then wipe the lens. By doing it, you are removing the dirt that may have accumulated while you were using your disc player. It is highly advisable that you switch on all your electronic gadgets at least twice a week even if you're not using them. By doing this, you are preventing your electronic devices from acquiring moisture due to heat/coldness in the environment.
Another possibility, the format of the disc that you inserted (mp3, mp4, blueray, dvd) is not compatible with your player and therefore your player was not able to decode/read the signal.

  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    I created a mp3 data cd using cd-r and it doesnt play. I create a music mp3 and it plays with no problem. What am I doing wrong?

    Many cd players do not have the capability to play mp3 data files. They do not have the processing capacity of a computer, which reads data mp3 and converts it on the fly as easily as other data files used to install software, etc.
    If you know your cd player to be mp3 compatible, try burning at a slower speed, like 1/2 the speed the burner is rated for, or less (like 4-8x), to see if the cd player will read that disc. If that doesn't work, try another media brand. Some cds are of inferior quality and won't write well enough for mp3 data files to be read well by all players.

    You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it.
    As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.

    CD Player will not read ANY CD's, in ANY tray or any type (stamped, CDR, MP3, etc)

    If cleaning the laser lens with a cleaning disk doesn't help, then it may be time to take it back and get a refund. Good luck.
