When I put a CD in, it often spins it round, then tells me there's "no disc", and won't play it. Some CDs work fine; it seems to be newer ones that won't play. Sometimes I can get it to work by opening and closing the lid a few times.

To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs,
MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs,
make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs
The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability
is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was
recorded in and the actual disc used for recording. Note: iTunes
defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make
CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the
format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options
Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which
may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning
your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs
If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints
or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still
won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc
Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.
It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens. Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player. I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model. Thanks.
Its dirty, try a disc cleaner, (brushes not solution) and if that does not work, its time to replace, (unless the radio is all ya want). ALSO- if you are trying to play burnt discs, (cd-r, mp3 discs etc) than that could be the issue as not all indash cd players support non store bought cds
Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.
If you have a small enough screwdriver and some time it's not too hard. I just fixed one of my kids' walkman (same make & model) yesterday. The motor that spins the gears that makes the laser assembly move back & forth came loose. There is a single screw that holds this motor in place. They should use some lok-tite or similar when they assemble these things.
