Cd player does not work

Am/fm radio works. When I put in a cd and press play, the cd spins for 2-3 seconds and than stops. Is it worth getting this fixed?

The CD spins while the laser tries to focus on the disc, and that's how it knows a CD is in. It's not detecting the disc and so the CD stops. This could be simply dirt on the laser lens, and you could try using a cotton swab to gently wipe it off. If that doesn't take care of it, the laser assembly needs to be replaced. This unit cost about $200 or more if I recall, so it might be worth getting a repair estimate. If this were a typical cheap boombox it would be better to replace it.

My 5 Disk CD player doesn't work. It wont read any kind of CD. The radio and Tape Decks still work though. How can I fix the CD player.


Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.

  1. Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
  2. Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.

CD player in 00 Volvo S70 not working


Try a "Laser Lens Cleaner" one that uses fluid, you can find them at just about any electronics retailer for 15-20. Run it thru a couple times and try your cd again. If it plays, make sure you clean it 3 or 4 times a year. It's the only preventative maintanance you can do. If it still won't play, it need service, if it's just an am/fm/cd without a changer etc. your better off replacing the unit. The repair will run from 125-175 on average. They just replace th cd transport. Hope this helps

CD changer...doesn't play...says ''no disk''


Yes Dust can cause the problem.
If you want to try cleaning the laser optics:
1. Unplug the unit and remove the cover.
2. Locate the Cd mechanism and you should see the tray where you would normally insert the disc. Look for a glass lens about 1/4 inch in diameter ( usually a blueish tint)
3. With a cotton swab dipped in a little isopropyl alcohol (any pharmacist should have it and it is very inexpensive ) Clean the lens. You do not need a lot of alcohol and any excess will quickly evaporate.
4. Put the cover back on and give it a try

CD Player stopped working


Probably there is dust on the lens. My CD player (different brand) did the same. I opened the case and cleaned the lens with a photo camera brush (VERY gently). Now it works fine.

If you cannot / do not want to open the device to access the lens, you may want to buy a cleaning CD.

Sound Stage 5 CD player does't play the cd's


Many times this comes down to 2 different issues. 1) the laser is dirtier than a CD cleaner can clean it. You will need to open it up and clean the lense using rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol, I prefer denatured, and a "Q-tip". If this does not do it then you probably need to get the laser adjusted. If you have some expertise in opening and dissassembling equipment then I can walk you through it. If you do not then you are best to take it to a repair shop if the cleaning does not work.
