CD PLayer won't play CD's

I got this off eBay because the amp part is working fine and it was offered at a great price. Would like to get the CD part fixed but I don't want to pay $150+... When I put a CD in the player loos like it is trying to read it but spits the CD out few seconds later. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Mercury Monterrey 2005 had torque converter replaced and cd player won't work is this a result of power being cut when redcall service done?


It is their fault

They don't care

They should do what is necessary to
have your CD Player work, after disconnecting
the battery, to do other work

Go there & stand the by the vehicle, while
they resolve the issue

Can I order a remote for this player? Thank you


You can't order one here, since Fixya isn't a manufacturer's site or parts vendor. But replacement remotes for your model are available. The remote is RMT-V501C (Sony part number 9-865-061-20). A search for the remote returned several sites selling them at a variety of prices. There are some sellers on eBay offering them as well. I'm not going to supply links because I don't know where you are (if you aren't in the US they won't help) and may be outdated by the time you see this. But if you do a search for the remote number you should find a seller.

CD will not play. The CDs goes in and out fine and looks like it is playing according to the display. I can change songs, fast forward and reverse through the songs according to the display but nothing...


Do you have the radio hooked up to an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amp on. The antenna remote wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

My cd/dvd player doesn't work either. I found someone on ebay willing to sell me a used one for $150. I want to know if it's a good price and if anyone knows where to find the tutorial for me to replace...


I calld dealership about what it was goona be to fix mine bc it chooses which cds it wants to play when it wants to, it would be 300-400 & would have to remove it & send it off therefore having to drive around w/o a radio for 2 weeks, not worth the money. just make sure that it is the correct model #, part #, etc & make sure that u have the unlock code for the used deck for when u would install it. bc w/o it it wont work. i wouldmake sure that u could install it & enter the code & get it working b4 sending any $ just incase it is stolen......

CD player won't play MP3 CD's?


I have had similar problems in the past - on one computer discs burned using nero were unreliable but using Windows Media Player they were fine and on other computers the Windows programme was useless and produced unreliable inconsistent results.

I suggest you experiment with different burning software and maybe suspect the drive you are using might be past it's best.
I have several cd players in my vehicles and around my home. Only a couple of them will play all the discs and most of them are very choosy and will only read premium price shop bought discs and it is a waste of time trying to play a discount store or freebie disc, or many of my computer burned discs.

I don't know what the differences are - maybe it is the software or the power of the laser burning the disc or the sensitivity of the reading laser, but there are many differences in there somewhere. The situation is very frustrating...

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

Alpine 9881 cd will not play sound


If you had to connect the remote amp turn on lead from the headunit to the factory amp turn on lead you may find your problem there.

On many headunits there are 2 blue remote wires 1 for antenna and one for amp turn on. The antenna remote only supplies power when the radio is playing not when playing CD's. If you hooked the antenna wire to the amp trigger then the amps shut down when you play a cd. If that's not it let me know and I will research further.
