Its trying to read the cd. Sounds like you have a problem with a dirty laser or a incompatible disc. You can try getting some rubbing alcohol and a qtip dip one end of it in the alcohol and then rub it on the laser lens in a circular motion. Let the lens dry and try playing a cd again. Hope that helps.

Why does my cd player on my Radio/Cassette/CD boombox keeps reading ncd on all my CD's even on my disk cleaner cd?


The laser assembly is not reading the disc, as the laser ages it becomes weaker until it can no longer scan the disc and can not play, you have done everything that I would have recommended, at this stage it is far cheaper to replace the boombox than replace the laser pickup assembly.

Hi screen reads un disc then stops spining


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

I've realized that the jvc rc-bx30 can't read mp3 files. I would like to burn music to a cd/dvd and then play it on my jvc. What format should i use? By the way is there a possibility to change the reader...


Indeed the JVC RC-BX30 is a model of 1999, too old to be able to read mp3 cd. As you said you can write the mp3s to audio cd and then play them from this Boombox. You have to use the typical "audio disk" format (16bit, stereo, 44.100Hz). This format is available at any recorder software (Nero for 50Euros, or Ashampoo for free or anything else you have in your mind). There is no possibility to change the cd reader in order to be able the JVC to read the mp3 cd.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Hi. my JVC RC-EX30 reads the CD I put into it but it wont play the songs. so the "reading eye" can't be broken so what is?


There may be a hair stuck in the sled transport gear (the sled is the part of the mechanism that moves the laser assembly and tracks the the song as it plays)

Car CD player ER message, then reject ???


when you get an err message it means that the eye of the cd cannot read the disk. when was the last time you put in a cd cleaner? one that you put into any cd player. you can get one at your local big lots or radio shack or best buy. you need not spend a lot of money for one. or you can try to use a cuetip dipped in alcohol and clean the eye only. dry with another cuetip or soft cloth and see if that solves the problem.

Cd player is not working. One day it was working and next day it wasn't. I guess a button was pushed and now we can't figure out. Cd player will not read or play cds


?: Does the cd spins? If it does the optical eye that reads the cd could be dirty. Clean the eye with cd lens cleaner. If the cd is not spinning the motor could be bad. Also some cd players can't read certain disks because of the density of the disk. Make sure you read the manual to see what cds are compatible with your boombox. I hope these solutions were helpful.

Good Luck

Cd player on boom box


Hi I don't have a boom box, but i do know a little bit about CD players, and i think first the CD you are putting into the player as to be a proper bought CD, you know official CD, if you have done that, and still have the same problem, then its because the laser light is faulty, which basically means the CD player needs replacing.

Won't read disk


I had this problem on my Panasonic since it has a mechanised front tray loader. There are a couple of things you can do: clean the CD with toothpaste and dry the CD with a fabric cloth - not paper as this will scratch the CD.

Vacuum out the CD player by using a crevice tool and carefully insert into the mouth of the CD player to get rid of any dust.

If the CD has been burnt from a computer, it may not recognise on the Sony unit even if it states it can play CD's from PC/Mac. Usually after a CD has been burnt its best to play it on your computer before transferring to the stereo unit of your choice.

Usually the clicking noise means that the music is trying to get through but something is stopping it.
