My portable cd player is acting weird all of a sudden! HELP!!!!
Okay,the only working cd player I have is acting up. Every time I put a disc in and press play, it doesnt spin, just makes weird noises like its trying to spin. And those two dashes that come up when its loading the disc, just blink forever, then after a while they stop and all you see is "Er". I have tried everything I know. Cleaning the lense, blowing inside just to make sure its not dusty, changing the batterys, making sure the controls are on right, and every disc I put in there is brand new. Help me!!! I cant live with out my music!!!!

1. Check that the disc is free of scratches and dirt or dust. If the disk is dusty, use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe the disk gently, using straight strokes from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
2. Make sure that you are inserting the disk with the plain, reflective side down.
2. Try listening to another CD (not burned) that you have purchased. If the other cd is giving you the same error message, return the cd player to the store, because it is defective.
3. Ensure that the disc you are using is not a DVD disc. It is easy to confuse the two.
Hope that helps! Good Luck!
It's dead. Mine did the same thing, but I noticed also that the disc never spun up fast enough to be read successfully. I'm guessing that the motor just lost its oomph. I imagine that one way or another it's fixable, but with portables so cheap and a player this old not being able to read anything but manufactured CDs, i.e., no CD-R, CD-RW, etc., it's not worth it. And mine was old enough to vote! :)
If your cd player supports MP3 playback. When you write a music disc with your computer you must write them as a data file. Some burning software will ask if you want MP3 or CDA. if your files are CDA you must convert them to MP3s, you can download software to do this for you. But today most burning software will do this for you.
Your cd-player fails to read the discs. assuming the disc isn't damaged your problem might result of many diffrent reasons, from dirty lens to bad mechanism, memory problem or bad circuit.
You will need to have it checked by a professional technician.
