My daughter's compact stereo stopped playing CDs last week. She has tried
different CDs so it is not damaged or dirty CDs. The player is 4 years old.
Any suggestions on how to clean the lens, if that is the problem? I am in a
wheelchair and it is difficult to get to the machine in her room, so I'd
like to do it in one fell swoop, after I go in to take a look and figure out
what I need to get together to tackle the problem. I was once a computer
tech, but I only switched out boards and do not have soldering or meter
my stereo in my room is not playing cd's, its 3 cd exchange player and it will go through each cd and then it will say no disc... i don't have a clue whats wrong!! it will only play the radio and tapes.

There is no AUX input on your system. That is a headphone output jack, not an input. There appears to be an AUX button on the repmote, but the manual indicated that it does not work. See the link below. Sorry for the bad news. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/313546/Rca-Rs1285.html?page=6#manual
chack and see what type of CD you are using. i have been having the same issue. i actually found out that the CD's i use to play songs, and etc are "CD-R". the compatible CD's for my (RCA DIGITAL AUDIO SYSTEM RS2603) sterio are CD-RW's or compact disc that you find on production music like albums, etc. hope this helped !
The "no disc" message will show up any time the unit tries to play a disc and fails. This can be because the lens is dirty or the optics have failed. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, the optics are failing and will need to be replaced.
We had the same problem with our last rca stereo. I don't remember what model it was. My husband took it apart and found that there was and area on the circuit board that was fried. I don't know of any other solution then the one we chose. Trash it. I'm not expert but I would imagine that you could by a new stereo for the price of replacing that circuit board. Just don't buy an rca. They are junk. Our new rca just quit playing cds.
rca does not sell just the laser it sells the base assy. it consistos of the laser & the spindle motor on the metal base. no circuit boards, thoes you will need to remove off of the old one. the list price from rca is $136.10 CDN. replacing the part is not too hard, but take a little time.
