CD player can't find the disc.

The CD player stops on each of 5 CD's and says "reading" and then says "no disc". Everything else seems to work fine.

Re: CD player can't find the disc.

Hey man, I had the exact same problem with mine. What you do is take off the top cover which has 2 screws on top and 3 on back side of top. You'll see where the two parts come together to grab cd and spin it. Well, you should also see a little "eye" lens that actually reads the disc. Clean this off with windex or some time of cleaner. Bam, It works.

Re: CD player can't find the disc.

What it could be is that it is probably not recognizing the format of the cd that is in there like if that is a cd where software is only onto it it would only go into your computer if it has pictures it can either go into your computer or into the dvd player or it could be that if that is a dvd movie the cdplayer is probably not able to take it

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.

Fw316C cd player will not read discs

Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one

CD malfunction

It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.

CD player will not read any disc

Try cleaning the lens, best way is to open it up and use rubbing alcohol (the purer, the better) with a q-tip. Wait for it to dry, then test it. If that doesn't work, you'll most likely need a new pickup. This might be of interest to you:
