Question about Sony Psyc ZS-SN10 Radio/CD Boombox

5 Answers

ZS-SN10 Radio/CD doesn't appear to recognize a disc

"No Disc" lights on the display even when a disc is in place and I've followed all the suggestions in the manual except I don't know what-----"the CD-R/CD-RW was not finalized" means so I can't finalize it !

This item was a gift and for me there are way too many options-----I am a 73yr.old grandmother and all I want to be able to do is listen to the radio and play a CD.

I'm beginning to feel as if I need oxygen to climb all these learning curves!

Good day Madam,

I don't know if this is what is causing your problem, but I can clarify what finalizing a cd is.

Essentintially when you write your information to the disc the software CAN leave it open so that you can write more music or other data to it, unless you mark a check box in your recording software to tell it to "Finalize" the disc. This records a code on the disc telling CD drives that this is all of the information on the disc. Basically it's like writing "The end" at the end of a story.

Some cd players have problems with unfinalized disc, as their not designed to deal with a disc that as far as it can tell has no end.

I hope this helps you
Dave

1.Try with a different CD and then check
2. Use a Disk cleaner to clean the drive

If you have a computer please check if you can play the CD in the computer

If the above steps did not resolve then mam you need someone to have a check on the system.

Thanks

The whole thing let me think that you have a lens problem.

Try first cleaning the lens using a lens cleaner kit (the ones with xolution)

If that does not work, then you will need to access the lens inside the unit (by taking it apart) and clean lens dirtectly by using isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton.

The CD part of my player does not start.


From what it sounds like, the laser lens in your cd player is having trouble reading discs. Is it just one cd or all? assuming it's all. you make want to get a cd lens cleaner disc....it's basically a cd with little bristles on the bottom designed to 'sweep away' the dust that accumulates on the lens. However, should you do that a few times (i usually give it about five good runs) and it still doesnt work, try another disc and listen closely for any sort of 'out of place' clicking noises....especially a monotonous repetitively click or ticking.... that usually indicates that the lens carriage has somehow jammed or come off track and needs to be replaced or refitted. refitting them on the track isnt difficult and once you open it up it's pretty self explanatory if you're mechanically inclined. Hope this helps.

PD5203 says no disc when disc is in the player


If this problem occurs only at this cd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd 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 player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean up the cd lens manually. 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

Make sure your cd medium is compatible with your Sony unit. Some cd types that have been burned on a computer may not be compatible. Check your instruction book for your Sony unit to see what types of cd medium you can use.. Also, the lens on you cd player could be dirty and may need a cleaning CLICK HERE to see the Radio Shack lens cleaner.
