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.

these disc have a compatbility issue with a lot of computers and players reading from the dark recording surface .

the solution is simple use memorex cdr that have a mirror type recording surface on back the more reflective the recording surface the easier the media is to read stay away from dark recording surfaces.

SOURCE: Not reading cds

hi

the lens may have been damaged. what you can do is physically open your cdrom and manually check for the lens. as you open the cdrom panel, be very careful as it would damage the chips inside. as soon as you see the lens, check it first by looking at it and look for dust and residues. clean it thoroughly and try to insert a cd now if it works,

hope this will help.

:)

the lens is located on the inside. you will have to remove the top casing, once you do you will see the dvd player, then you will need to remove the top bar that runs across it. you will see a yellow sticker on....undo the screws and the you will see the lens.....

Yeah, the MMP8595 happens to be nearly incompatible with everything except for vista and 7. As for the mini-CD, it only gives you a myDJ plugin for Media Player 10.

Basically:
get vista
or
get a new MP3 player

sorry....

Why won't a CD-RW disc play in my car CD player?


Some of the older cd players, car or otherwise, just aren't capable of recognizing CD-RW's. The player in my 10 year old Ford Mondeo doesn't, but the updated model player in the newer Mondeo does play CD-RW's.

My technics sl-p770 doesn?t recognize the loaded CD.A cd is alway spin but not any track in audio cd.


Try cleaning the lens with a cd/dvd lens cleaner disc. Another thing of note....some cd players simply will not recognize homemade cds, or dics that are not audio discs, or if they were made on a computer.

The CD player is no longer working. Not sensing it.


buy a cleaning disk, or get a micro fiber cloth, and take the stereo apart and find the laser lens, near the motor that spins the cd, it will be pretty small, gently wipe it clean in one direction, if that doesnt work, the laser has quit working.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.
