Open Question

Memorex 2xtreme radio/cd player doesn't recognize disc

Disc spins @ start up [erratically] then stops. when i do that w/o any disc it spins a little than stops. I think the disc is not being recognized. Could the disc be slipping on the turn table? Wouldn't this cause it not to be recognized? Something I can do to insure it's gripping cd. I cleaned little laser window. I'll try cleaning table. This unit is only about 1 year old. Junk? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    My Memorex 2xtreme radio/cd player does the same thing. I hope someone can tell me how to fix it. It only worked for about a month!

    Yeah, had the same problem - died after about 3 weeks, the day after I threw the box into the trash compactor. CD starts, plays for maybe 2 minutes then sounds like everything falls apart. I took it apart and greased some components because it looked bone try all around, but this didn't help.

    I just got a Memorex 2xtreme for my birthday and the CD player does not work. It tries to spin, but can't seem to pick up the momentum.

I don't see anything online to suggest you can jog with it or otherwise jar it and expect it to play. Some players have a cache to reduce or eliminate loss of audio when the laser temporarily goes off-track.

Memorex portable cd player will not hold place on the cd when turned off


Audio books may be different but with a music CD if you press STOP once you can pick up where you left off. Pressing STOP twice reverts to the beginning.

My cd player stops while playing and shows er on the display


Try checking for dust on the laser eye, A fine, clean and very soft artists brush will do for cleaning or perhasp the CD has a miniscule scratch on the surface. You'll know if it is a scratch as the CD will always stop in the same place. CD's and DVD's should only be wiped clean with a very clean duster in the direction of from the centre hole to the outer rtim of the disc. Never ever wipe anything across the whole surface from one side to the other or wipe in a circular motion. There a quite a few products on the market that will help you keep you discs clean. Just google CD (or DVD) cleaner. CD's and DVD's are quite forgiving in how badly scratched they can be and still play. It only takes a small scratch or dent that can only be seen under magnification to deflect the laser beam off track.

Hi Last night I was listening to my disc player and when I went to change discs nothing played. I don't know if I touched the wrong button in the dark but nothing happened. I changed batteries and when...


Not to worrry , but there is a sliding button, knob that makes the set pause and called as HOLD. All you need to do is to slide the knob back,look at teh side of the door/set. please look carefully even if the pause is pressed twice.
I am sure you will find this out and continue to enjoy music during your treatment. I wish you luck and my prayers for a good treatment. Good day

I have a Sony Psyc CD Walkman D-Ej010 and I will have a cd in there at it will play for a few minutes and then stop and say no-disc. What could be the problem?


There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
  • For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
  • Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
  • Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
  • If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
  • NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
  • If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
  • Attempt to play the disc again.
  • Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
  • If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
  • Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

If the issue persists, please click hear to locate the repair facility near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Blinking "disc" error


Hi Lambo, 1) Your disc may be bad: scratches on surface, the surface maybe dirty, the disc is maybe bended,... Try with other discs, if the error occurs see next steps. If not, the initial disc was bad, but don't throw away, you may be able to clean it. 2) The Laser-optics in your Walkman can also suffer: - open your Walkman as if you would load a disk; look inside and you will see a little lens inside: clean it by using a ear-cleaner ( little stick with cotton on one or both ends). First dip the cotton end in some pure natural alcohol ( ethyl) and wipe very carefully over the little lens surface 3) The drive-mechanism of the Laser may also be cause; the only thing you can do on the field; the little lens ( see 2 ) normally should be near the end of a channel which you can recognize as the cut-out of the plastic . While reading a CD the lens moves thru this channel. You can try to push very softly this lens towards the nearest end of the channel. It often helps. 4) The Laser can be to its end of life; you can ask to change the opto-electrical mechanism, but I'm afraid it will cost you nearly as much as a new player; if you can buy a second hand might be even cheaper. Important for the future: - don't write with markers on discs; these texts release small quantities of fumes on laser-lenses - smokers pollute also with nicotine-fumes their lenses and discs Hope you can get nice music ASAP; let us know
