Re: CD Player

Have you tryed cleaning the laser lens with a lens cleaner?? The fact that it spins tells us that the unit is focusing but not reading the proper data. Good Luck

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?

If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

Insignia cd player that reads no disc when it is turned on with a cd installed

Check whether the inserted CD spins inside your unit or not. If it spins, and the set does not recogonize the disc, the laser pickup assembly has the trouble and should be replaced with same type and number. If it does not spins, the sled motor, the motor that spins the disc, is faulty and should be replaced. OK.

My 5 Disk CD player doesn't work. It wont read any kind of CD. The radio and Tape Decks still work though. How can I fix the CD player.

Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.

  1. Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
  2. Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play

RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

CD's won't play

I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.

Cd motor not spinning

The motors spin constantly if you play a disk on it all day think how many hours its runnign the motor. The lazers also move in and out and up and down during play and thats just one more mechanical part that can fail. Once we get all mechanical parts out of the devices we will have less trouble with them.
