If you have already tryed to clean the lens on the laser pick-up assy. Then that ticking is the tracking coil trying to track on the right track. Theres several alighnments that may need adjustment, but you need to have special alighment jigs and tools. Sorry but there are no user serviceable parts inside this unit. your gonna need to take it in for repair or buy a new one. Sorry i couldnt help more.

Toyota echo 2002 cd player (without cassette, marked 31804) Radio works fine, but when a put on a cd, it reads it and starts playing... with no sound. Any ideas? Thanks a lot

well , as with all discs, old player will NOT play all CDs.
not even close.
first ask an old guy for CDDA disk or buy one from walfart.
then try that, only these disks work in all players.
other disks may or will not work.
like DVD-R, CD-R and any other recordable disks will fail.
that is the acid test, if the CDDA disk works (real audio disk)
works then the drive is ok, if not, its bad. simple as apple pie.

hi Squeakylyssa .This goes for all cd players.
If a CD is skipping, first ensure that the disc is working properly by checking to see if it plays on another device. If so, you'll have to uncover the problem in your CD player. Some common problems include: broken parts in the device, physical damage to the CD player, dirt within the player or, most commonly, damage to the lens.
Before you do anything with the CD player, it is important to remove the batteries and disconnect the device from any power source. Wait half an hour before you begin cleaning the device.
Use a lens cleaner to clean your CD player's lens properly. Unscrew the top cover of the player and locate the laser lens, which is located just adjacent to the central disc drive. Place a small amount of your cleansing solution on a cotton swab or other applicator that came with a lens cleaning kit; as an alternative to lens cleaner, you can also use isopropyl alcohol. Rub the cotton swab in very light and small circles against the lens until it is clear. Allow the lens to dry, and then proceed to test the CD player. If the CD player is still skipping after the lens has been cleaned, there is likely a hardware problem that needs to be solved.

A CD player has a few hardware components that may be causing your discs to skip. Unscrew and open the case of the CD player to locate the read head and potentiometer. Depending on the type of device you have, you may need to remove the bottom cover to gain access to the soldered side of the electronics board - if so, you will need to remove the whole board before you can proceed. In single-play designs, you should be able to find 3 or 4 screws that need to be removed to enable you to take out the whole optical deck. There may also be a grounding contact under the deck held in with one screw. Make sure you replace this exactly as you found it.
If your player spins for some time without finding the list of tracks and keeps returning some kind of error message once you place a CD in the player, there is a most likely a problem with the read head. The read head is represented by a small square piece that has a plastic disc sitting on top of it. Using a flathead screwdriver, adjust the plastic disc to realign the read head. This process requires you to plug in the device and hit play and stop until these adjustments fix the CD player. Make sure to put the case back on the CD player each time you test it to avoid any electrical shocks.
The potentiometer, which is positioned directly above the laser, may also be misaligned. Usually this is represented by a small square piece that has a plastic disk on top. The disk has a slot adjustable using a small flat head screwdriver. Before making any adjustments, mark the current position of the potentiometer using an indelible marker pen so that it can be returned to its initial position if need arises. You will need to gently adjust the potentiometer and locate the position where the CD player recognizes the disk again and plays it without skipping. Since this is more of a trial and error process, small rotations of plus/minus 30 degrees of rotation are usually recommendable. For safety, put the case back on the CD player each time you test. If you are happy with the performance after the adjustment then put the case back on and you are ready to rock.

2004 VW Jetta CD player rejects cd's 90% of the time

Laser units will over a period of time lose their ability to properly focus on the data that is on the disk. When that happens, it simply goes to laser heaven - cleaning does not and will not repair the fact that the unit is dying or dead!

U wasted 28 bucks. Your best bet is to go to Crutchfield and find a unit that will fit and work properly in the allotted space of your car. Also a lot cheaper that going to a VW dealer.

My dvd won't play any movies

the ticking sound is most likely the laser hitting the disk trying to focus, my guess is the motor isnt spinning the disc or the laser is bad or weak.

There may have been a Windows update that corruptdated one of your Windows Media Player files. Check for spyware or a virus. WMP is usually an avenue for thay sort of thing. Check for updats to all software involved. You may also consider doing a firmware update if they have one. Good Luck, Tim

CD PLayer won't play CD's

Hi First of all, you must find all the screws for the top cover and remove it. Make sure the unit is not plugged in! Then, making sure that you are not touching anything inside the unit, plug it back in,put a Cd in the drawer, and watch what happens. If the drawer closes, but you can still hear a motor running, then it is a belt drive unit, and the belt is slipping, if that part is ok, listen carefully for a ticking noise, which is the laser lense going up and down trying to focus on the CD, if the disk starts to spin then the mech has closed properly, and the unit is trying to find the directory. If the unit then spins the disk for a while then ejects it, then the laser is dirty or faulty. I would suggest getting it cleaned at a shop if the lense appears dirty. ***Never look straight down at the laser lense if it is exposed on your model of CD player, it is a class 3 laser, and you will be doing some harmful home laser surgery to yourself!!!*** Hope this helps! Good Luck! P.S. When following the steps above, if you hear the ticking of the lense moving up and down, but the disk does not spin, gently spin it clockwise with your finger, if it starts to play, or finds the directory, then the spin motor is bad.
