Question about Sansui MCX7AV CD Shelf System

Open Question

CD malfunction I have this system which used for over 10 years, I have the following problems on the system, (i) the CD player is now no working and usually displayed "No disc" even I put the new CDs, or those old CDs properly played with system before. Is the life of the CD player ended and can it be fixed/replaced? (ii) I have used another CD player (not Sansui) by plugging the cables into the audio holes at the back of the system (both at the bottom), but there is still no sound from the system but I can use the radio from the system (that means the connection of the speakers is OK). Anything get wrong with my system?

It is probable that the battery will need to be changed, this the first step to find out if additional work is required.

Cd player has err

The CD player is defective, if the Crosley has Aux audio input jack, you can buy a cheap CD player which would be a far cheaper alternative.

This should be because you have not used the player for many years. Does the system eject the CD tray? Use the CD head cleaner CD that removes dust on the laser head if any. Try using the audio CD which are recorded in .cda format and not ion MP3 format.

I have a Philips model #FWM575/37 Cd/Tape/Radio combination player. It is only 3 years old and the CD portion is not working. CD starts playing, then stops and can't get any CD to work.

You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

CD player in 00 Volvo S70 not working

Try a "Laser Lens Cleaner" one that uses fluid, you can find them at just about any electronics retailer for 15-20. Run it thru a couple times and try your cd again. If it plays, make sure you clean it 3 or 4 times a year. It's the only preventative maintanance you can do. If it still won't play, it need service, if it's just an am/fm/cd without a changer etc. your better off replacing the unit. The repair will run from 125-175 on average. They just replace th cd transport. Hope this helps

Fw316C cd player will not read discs

Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one
