I was spinning at the club last Friday and my damn CDX would not read my disc after half way through my set (2 hours in). This happened on just one. Initially, the CDX would not even accept the disc...just popped it out. Then after it took it, the display would read either "CD OUT" or "NO DISC." The only solution was turning it off and back on...
Seemed to work.
My question for you all is a three parter:
1: Does anyone think that cold weather could be a contributor to this? I live in Bend Oregon (6 months of the year it is damn near freezing) and store my equipment in the garage. 2: Does anyone think that not storing these flat could be a contributor? I keep them in their coffins and they sit up on end. The coffins are obviously heavily padded so they cannot move around once they are locked in, but sitting in an orientation for sometimes days at a time. 3: Have the updates helped anyone...seriously?
Its an heat issue,the only way heat can release from these is from the bottom.heat rises so its hard for it to excape .so the power supply heats up and voltage begans to drop causing weird things.try cooling fans,worked for me.

If the DVD loads, there should be something on the display that indicates it is being read (maybe a spinning disc icon). If it tries to read, then displays the "no disc" icon it means either that particular DVD can't be read or the drive has failed. If you try another DVD and get the same result, you can be pretty sure the drive has failed
1) It's more likely your laser died than the the drive failed.
2) Run back to your repair guy, and when they fix it (IF they fix it), ask to see it work before you go home. They damned well better fix it for free!
3) Buy another one on eBay.
C13 means the machine cannot read the TOC on the disc. It is possible you have a disc with a bad TOC. You may have left it near a magnetic field, such as a speaker or a component transformer. Try another disc. Or take a disc and erase it, then record on it. See what happens.
The CD drive in your CDJ is hunting for the disc, i.e it has become difficult for the player to read the disc. Keep your ears next to the loading slot after inserting a CD, you will hear a motor spin up then slow down then spin up again and if this continues the system will lock out the eject function. Or else the disc will come flying out!!. Either you need lens cleaning ( try a cleaning kit ) or replacement ( If the player has crossed over 500 hours of use )
A no disc error on any electronics device indicates one of three problems. 1. The disc reading lens in the cd/dvd/brd drive has gone out or is dirty. 2. The drive has a "stabilizing" screw that must be tweaked. 3. The disc is not spinning due to a bad motor on the drive or something is blocking it. If you can hear the disc spinning *whizzing sound* its not a motor issue. You can try running a cd lens cleaning disc but if its not registering it probably wont spin, thus wont clean the lens. You can attempt to clean a lens with a cotton Q tip and rubbing alcohol but be warned, touching the lens can scratch it and destroy it. If your object is not under warranty you can have a professional look at the drive to check the tension on screws, this is usually a huge problem found in XBOX 360's. Make sure its not the disc by trying other working games/movies/etc. If all else fails you can always purchase a new dvd/cd/blu ray drive and have it professionally installed. Xbox 360 $20-$40, PS3 $100-$150
Although its not common, another solution is that cables on the drive might be loose, but usually you cannot open the device; the two cables are power approx. 1-1.5 inches long and the output plug which is usually half the size.
I used to have the same problem: the rubber feet of the players are too stiff. It is indeed vibration that causes the problem. Btw: after a couple hours in a club, you are usually playing much louder than at home, with more low-end punch.
I haven't had a single problem AFTER systematically setting the players on foam. This is similar to the tennis balls trick for regular turntables, except that here you need something a softer suspension as the players are very light. Shipping foam is good; camping foam mattress works also.
Does it pop out immediately? If not, listen carefully to the drive after you insert the disc. Can you hear the disc spinning? Any activity from the laser? If the disc is not spinning but you can hear the faint whirring and clicking of the laser transport, it could be that the laser itself has failed - it's the laser that detects if a CD is present. If it doesn't detect anything (due to being knackered!), the disc will not spin and will eject.
