Re: stereo won't read cds

You might try running a cleaning CD in it (which cleans the lazer lens). These are available from Wal Mart and many other sources. If a cleaning doesn't get it going, then you may have a lazer that is weakening and might need to be replaced (sorry!). Hope just a good lens cleaning will do the trick.

Do you mean other than the ones that came with it? NOT recommended. But not impossible either. You assume all risk of equipment damage if you proceed.

First, kiss your warranty goodbye.

I'd go with a series connection or you WILL present too low an impedance to the modest amps.

That means + to minus on one speaker, then + of that speaker to - of the next, then + of that speaker back to - on the amp. Repeat for the other channel.

Start with LOW VOLUME and see how the amp reacts. Of course, you'll have no way of controlling individual volumes so if the speakers are mistmatched it won

The stereo turns on fine but when i put a CD in it says no disk, and i have tried cleaning it but that didnt help. any suggestions?

If you have cleaned the Laser assembly and it is not reading the disc, there are few reasons that would be the case, a bad spindle motor "pladder won't turn" stepper motor or worm gear not working "tracks the laser ***" the laser eye has become defective. The bottom line is you need a complete CD assembly to fix the problem and it probably would not be cost effective.

The cd door is stuck as if a cd is out of place. Won't open enough to see the problem.

Before, when trying to see the problem, I clicked "skip" to see if it would go through all the discs. It did, but still wouldn't open the door. Later, I clicked "play" each time, then "skip", and after going through all 5 discs, the door opened. Go figure.

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play

RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.
