Dead CD player - everything else is o.k.

The display has been fixed with capacitor change. Everything works except the cd player. Disc doesn't even spin.

    Dave:
    My CD player on the LS5 unit spins, but it will not begin tracking and playing.  Used to be "picky" about what discs it played, but now it does it on every disc.  Can you shed some light on that, or if I get you my email, will you send the svc bulletin.  Also, how do I take the unit apart?  Also, do you know how to take the bass module apart?

Hi, Your unit may already had a mod incorporated, however, I am unable to attach an extract from a Bose Service Bulletin which solves this type of problem, also depending upon which board version you have it can also be down to a potentiometer adjustment. Please send me you e mail address and I will forward you the details.

Everything works on my emerson MS9700 except the cd player. the display keeps saying no rdy. how can i fix this?


If the indication says" not ready " it means that the disc is not reading the data present on it . It is possible that the disc is not scanned by the optical head to be ready to play.
So it is possible that the optical head is defective or weak, please try to clean the optical eye with ear bud very softly or use a disc cleaner.
If there is no result the head can be faulty.
If the set was not used for long time please keep it powered ON.
Also the processing section/main board can be a suspect.

My cd player on the Sony HCD-G101 rotates the discs but ...


i had the same problem after i moved and everything ran but when i put in a cd the disc would spin for awhile then change to the next disc and just kept spinning and moving from one disc to the other none stop. so i opened mine up turns out during the move there is a small black plastic piece that sits on top of the laser in the middle it shifted during the move making it block the view of the disc. you will have to carefully remove the plastic piece from the top of the laser with out touching the laser lens and that fixed mine good as new. my problem is i need the remote code movers lost my remote and can't find the code to use the replacement i bought. Hope it helps if this is the same problem i had should work. i tried to move the black piece back into place but it just did not go back right to just removed it all together. they did not use anything to really hold it into place to avoid slipping.

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

CD Player Tray Spins Continuously With or Without Disk


Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck
