Panasonic CD player gives "no disc" message with disc inside.

There could be several reasons why it would do this. Try very carefully cleaning the lens on the later if its dirty or has finger prints. Beyond that there isn't much you can do.

I have a 3-CD player. The system does not recongnize the discs and shows no disc in display. Is it the potentiometer adjustment that is required ? Please suggest.

  • The majority of the time when a disk player shows "no disk" when attempting to play a disk either the disk is formatted wrong for the player or most likely dirty.
  • Just get a lens cleaner and run it through the player two or three times. These lens cleaners are disks with very soft bristles on them that "sweep" the lens clean.
  • The lens is real dirty and needs a good cleaning to be able to read the CD. This is common with all disk players that have not had a cleaning as they should.
  • Be sure to give the cleaning disk a run through once a week.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

My Nx-385 will not play. When I put in a disc the player attempts to read then the display screen shows the word disc. What should I do?

It sounds like there is a problem with the Laser not picking up the CD.

If you've tried a Lens Cleaning Disc or Cleaned the Lens directly with a QTip and Lens Cleaning Fluid then the Laser has failed and wound not be cost effective to replace.

I had bought a regular cd from hmv with music on it & when i put the cd in the cd player,it wont play & reads NO DISC also does not reads the amount of music on the cd,why does it give me this...

1. Check that the disc is free of scratches and dirt or dust. If the disk is dusty, use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe the disk gently, using straight strokes from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
2. Make sure that you are inserting the disk with the plain, reflective side down.
2. Try listening to another CD (not burned) that you have purchased. If the other cd is giving you the same error message, return the cd player to the store, because it is defective.
3. Ensure that the disc you are using is not a DVD disc. It is easy to confuse the two.
Hope that helps! Good Luck!

I have a Sony Psyc CD Walkman D-Ej010 and I will have a cd in there at it will play for a few minutes and then stop and say no-disc. What could be the problem?

There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
  • For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
  • Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
  • Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
  • If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
  • NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
  • If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
  • Attempt to play the disc again.
  • Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
  • If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
  • Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

Sony cd walkman reads but won't play

If you have a small enough screwdriver and some time it's not too hard. I just fixed one of my kids' walkman (same make & model) yesterday. The motor that spins the gears that makes the laser assembly move back & forth came loose. There is a single screw that holds this motor in place. They should use some lok-tite or similar when they assemble these things.

CD player not turning

The laser is damaged/worn out. It would be cheaper to purchase a whole new unit, instead of repairing that one.
