CD jammed in player

I have a CD jammed about half way into the player. The disk had been playing normally for about a week - but when I went to switch disks this morning - it jammed. I can't eject the cartridge. Is there anything I can do short of taking it into a repair facility??

Hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent. regards Mark

Hi, my sony changer control audio master wx-c580r doesn't want to play CDRs, any reason why?

On the player there must be the loge CD-R compatible. If not, it wont play CD-r disks.
Normal CD's have a metallic reflector layer, giving a high contrast. CD-r disks have a dye, that will be changed in colour by a laser, giving a lesser contrast. When the laser and detectors in the player is not capable of reading the lesser contrast they can't play CD-R disks. Most older players can't. Sony is one of the manufacturers who deliberately kept there players incompatible with CD-r disk the longest.

CD player plays some CD but some of the others it spins them and tosses them off the cone

The center cone on the hub could be a problem if the player was not for the right juke. Each brand has their own style. (If you still have the old player, check and make sure the the hubs are the same.) The center cone on the hubs are glued in place so if they are different you might be able to pop the old one off and replace it to the new player. One other problem could also be the magnetic pressure disk that is supposed to hold the disk on the hub. Is it centered in the hold down arm or does it rub the sides? Does the disk wobble as it spins? The magnetic disk is supposed to hold it down on the hub to prevent it from wobbling and coming off the turntable.

What is wrong with my CD player?

Great player. Although the manual does not say a thing about this error, I'll try.
I think you use normal CD's and not disks you or someone burned for you.
The only thing I can think of is the CD must be dirty to scratched.
Or if you try to play disks, burned in a PC, that could cause trouble too. Although all CD and DVD burners in a PC, can play these disks, not all CD players can. Only the ones where the manufacturer says the drive is compatible with CD-R and or CD-RW.
A normal CD has metal as a reflector and gives a clear image from the ones and zeros on the disk. CD-R and CD-RV only have a dye on which a laser has changed the colour. Not giving a clear distinction between ones and zeros. The better CD players, have a stable motor and so on, but the laser is not set up for the dye disks. And although sometimes a disk can be played, for the player it looks lie a "dirty" disk.
I hope this helps.
If not, perhaps you should clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. DONT open the player and DONT touch the laser.

My portable dvd player will not read any dvds

  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Good day,I have a few Sanyo products which seem to have a common problem which is the radio does not read the CD's When you switch the CD player on the CD's spin as normal but you cannot hear the...

  • A couple of things here.
  • First take a disk player cleaner and run it through two complete times. It is quite possible that the lens on your your CD players has become dirty and just needs a good leaning. this is quite normal actually. Any lens that plays a disk should have a good cleaning weekly to give optimum performance. Overtime dust collects and prevents the lens from reading the disk. The lens disk cleaners have tiny gentle bristles that "sweep" the lens back to normal.
  • Also you want to make sure that there are no smudges or scratches on the disks themselves. Often time a gentle wiping will remove smudges but if the disk has some scratches it may need to be resurfaced. A resurfacing cost about $2usd at your local record shop or gamers/video store.
  • Now if neither of these solutions work , and often they do, then it is possible the lens has come out of alignment and this would have to be addressed by a tech. A lens only need to move a mm for it to not be able to read a disk properly.

  • hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Playing music

When the lid is closed on your player there is a little switch that is activated (closed) letting the player know you have inserted a disk and you're ready to jam out. Sometimes they are fairly easy to find and sometimes they are located in places that aren't so easy, like in the hinge. For the most part, there will be a hook- like piece extending from the lid of the unit which, when closed will activate the switch on the other half of your player. If you can find this hole where the hook goes into, check to see if it is making contact by taking a tooth pick or something similar ( nothing metal !! ) and activating the switch manually with a cd inserted.
