CD Alarm Clock displays NO DISC when attempting to play a CD.
I have done all the troubleshooting suggested in the manual and it still displays NO DISC. I was playing a book on tape, all was fine, the alarm was accidently set, it went off during CD play, and it has not worked since. I've tried different discs, double checked to make sure the door is closed tightly, and I see no dirt or smudges. This player gets used everyday, I've had it about 6 months. (That's just FYI) Could the alarm be the culprit? Model # MC7100 Suffix A

What does the display read when this happens, I have experience with these, does it say disc recover? also when the laser reader gets old, it may be done, unless you can maybe find someone with replacement. Old or scratched cds won't read well, or skip also.

NOTE: The USB memory device may need to be re-formatted to FAT32 format prior to inserting it into the player. 4. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc. 5. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback. 6. Attempt to play another disc.
NOTE: If another disc plays in the player, then the previous disc may be faulty. In this case, contact the Customer Information Service Center at 800-222-7669 to speak with a customer service representative for further troubleshooting. 7. Remove the disc from the BD player. 8.

There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
Attempt to play the disc again.
Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..
The laser has gone weak. If you feel confident taking it apart, unplug it and look for a small potentiometer on the CD reading pickup. Turn it to the right to about 700 ohms, it should start reading again. If you don't have a multimeter to measure it then get one, a basic $10 meter will do fine.
