CD Player Tray Spins Continuously With or Without Disk

Hello, I just recently purchased this Stereo System and I am experiencing difficulties with the cd player in it. Everything else works perfectly fine except for the when you press the "CD" button, it starts spinning the tray and never stops. It freezes the system and you cannot switch back to other modes without resetting. The tray will also not open. The CD Player responds the same way when operating from the remote. Please share any tips or advice that you might have for repairing this problem, thank you.

Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck

I agree with techman. If the machine is new, it will be covered under warranty. Just take it back to the store.

Hello My SL-MC7 gives a error message No Disk even the tray is full with disks. The disks are taken out to the player and put back again without being played Kind regards Rene

Well the first thing to try is a cd lense cleaner. You may have a build up of prticles and oil on the lense causing it not to read. Secondly, make sure you try a "Shop Purchased" cd to make sure it's not haveing problems reading "cdrs" (home made cds).
If after both of these methods you still have the same problem, it's down to the laser. Could be a series of things from tracking, focussing or the laser has died altogether. Unles your experienced with electronics in a big ay and have test meters and an oscilloscope, you need to decide how much you want to keep this CD player as a new one could be cheaper than a repair.

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.

Technics SC-CH515 CD Tray Does Not Stay Open

I DO NOT think that problem related with CD cleaner
3 possibility here
1 The loading belt was lose it can not open fully to reach the switch open when the time limited was out as program design from system control it automatic close
2 The loading gear system out of position 1 tooth
3 Dry joints on switch open and close or connector from CD tray to system control intermittent contact
In any case it require a qualifier Tech from Panasonic to reset the timimg gear or service
I hope that give you some ideas if you need further info or service manual I am willing to help you out

Won't read disk

I had this problem on my Panasonic since it has a mechanised front tray loader. There are a couple of things you can do: clean the CD with toothpaste and dry the CD with a fabric cloth - not paper as this will scratch the CD.

Vacuum out the CD player by using a crevice tool and carefully insert into the mouth of the CD player to get rid of any dust.

If the CD has been burnt from a computer, it may not recognise on the Sony unit even if it states it can play CD's from PC/Mac. Usually after a CD has been burnt its best to play it on your computer before transferring to the stereo unit of your choice.

Usually the clicking noise means that the music is trying to get through but something is stopping it.

CD Changer spinning continually

i have the same exact problem with mine. what i did was manually pull open the cd deck, stop the disk carousel from spninning by holding it still, then push the deck closed. the cd deck will no longer work, but at least it stops spinning. the auxiliary works fine and so does the radio.

My VCD player doesnot recognize a cd

Try cleaning the laser lens with a cleaning disk like you might find a Wal-Mart or Radio Shack and see if that helps. If the lens on the laser is too dirty to read that it has a disk then it will not attempt to spin the disk. If cleaning doesn't solve your problem then it may be a much bigger problem like weak laser etc. Good luck.
