Question about Sony CMT-NE5 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

'no disk' error message

My system shows 'no disk' error message after checking every single MP3 and audo CD inserted. My system is relatively new in the sense its usage is very limited, hence less chances of wear. Opened the box and cleaned the lens and checked with magnifier to verify there are no blemishes on surface of cd lens. Still displaying the same 'no disk' error message. Why? Will the optical head go dead suddenly? Ramki

Re: 'no disk' error message

Replace the strip connection wire that connects the Laser Picku Unit to main board. If the fault prevails, the Laser Beam emission to your devices' Laser pickup unit is less, and must be replaced with same type and number. OK.

RCA RS1285 Shelf System Problem

If you can open up the unit and see the CD lens, try cleaning it using a cotton swab and alcohol. The "no disk" message indicates that the optics assembly can not detect a disk. Sometimes this is due to dirt on the lens. If cleaning does not resolve the problem, the optics will need to be replaced.

Sharp CD-BA200 MIni Component Stero System

I've been messing with mine because it says no disc and I messed it up so it started saying this error. Unscrew the screws around the top (4 screws) and slide off the top cover. The small black rectangular box that sits over the eye/laser can be removed carefully by compressing the clips. Then the cd tray can be removed. I figured out this error was coming up because I had the tray out of alignment... so try to see if that's the problem with yours... also the eye itself slides (the entire mechanism it's on... slides away from and towards the place where the cd sits to be lifted and read) and it should be as close as possible to the area that lifts the cd. Sorry if this isn't making sense... trying to explain in the best way possible. The tray being out of alignment causes that error though.

M-Error is a mechanical error and could have a multitude of causes. just went through it with a TAD-5160 unit where it was a small slip gear moving a tin lever to ingage the transport sled to insert or eject the disk from and to the carusel. You may have to take the unit apart and asess the problem. Harleysp.

No if the cleaning does not work, you will need to have the unit hooked up to test equipment to check if the laser is bad. It could also be a bad spindle motor if the unit will not spin. good Luck
