Cd sony 815 does not play cd

If you mean the Sony Model # ICF-CD815. A.K.A. Dream Machine
you should check the user manual, for troubleshooting instructions:
from the manual:
The CD player does not operate.
  • Did you close the CD lid?
  • Did you place the disc correctly?
  • The disk should be placed with the labeled side up.
  • Dusty or defective disc-Clean the disc with an optional cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out
  • Take out the CD and leave the CD compartment open for about an hour to remove moisture condensation.

It seems to be a top loader system, so a few checks are in order:
  • Check that the disc spins (Insert CD, try to play and open the tray) Be careful, the disc might fly out of the tray!
  • Clean the CD drive lens with a cotton bud and some optical cleaner (camera shops and radio repair shops/techs should have a suitable liquid)
If the unit seems totally broken, take it to a tech or recycle it at a waste electronics depot and get a new one.

I have a bose wave radio cd. the cd spins but won't start playing.

Install the disc cleaner cleaning kit you bought from Wal-Mart so that the heads are cleaned of dirt and debris. Now try to play a disc. Also, check that the disc is not heavily scratched or got grime on it. You going to have to go have the disc re-surfaced and cleaned so it will play again.

If none of the above work, then you have to call Bose factory service and have them look into it if your within warranty. Otherwise, you gonna have to open this thing up and replace that failing optical drive or check for a loose power cable that connects to the optical drive.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.

To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs

  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options

  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs

  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc

  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

When using my 5disc cd player it keeps skipping and causing static intermitingly.The cd's are new and play fine on my small BOSE with only one cd unit.What do I do??? ngly

First thing I'd try is cleaning the laser with a CD / DVD lens cleaning disc. You can find them just about anywhere (Walmart, Target, Best Buy)

Just follow the instructions on the disc (basically just play it) the disc has brushes built into the bottom which will clean the laser lens automatically.

Let me know if that clears up the problem.
