Re: CD Player does not load CD

Try resetting the CD (Cambridge soundworks) by unplugging, then repluging. Then hold down the eject button while you turn on the power.

Cd mix 2, right tray says no disc. After about 30 times of loading disc in it finally finds disc and works all night long. Next day problem is back. Why?

If this problem occurs only at this cd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case this doesn't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Hi, i have a 1984 fisher studio standard cd player. when it plays, it sounds excellent and works fine. the machine will play cdr's as well as normal cds. however, some cds it simply will not spin. it...

Thanks for the informative write-up. So few know how to describe a problem (example: it's broke) or have the intuition to check a few things out.

A surviving 1984 CD player? Good for you. And they originally said the lasers would burn out in a few years.

Don't read too much into sound quality and tracking of defects for this problem. It sounds like a load status sensing problem. Does it make the thee clicks when you load no disk or one upside down (to simulate a bad disk)?

You're probably on the right track with the tilt. I suspect you need to locate the sensor that 'sees' the presence of the disk in the first place. Can you try your troubleshooting with the covers off and observe what may be different at the tilted angle?

It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.
Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player.
I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model.

I think either your disk player, or your CD is dirty.
You should probalyly try getting a Q-tip slightly dampened in rubbing alcohol .
and clean the inside of your player.

Or you should try a different disk
