Question about RCA RP4010 Clock Radio

Open Question

CD doesn't spin at all.

When I insert a CD I can hear the unit doing something but it does not spin at all. No display as to condition. I think maybe a drive belt has let go but I can;t figure out how to open the unit. I've taken out the three screws on the bottom but the unit still does not come apart.
Any suggestions?
Also, where can I find a manual. Thanks.

SOURCE: When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it

Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

SOURCE: Just says "Hello" at plug-in. Fan runs, no button

Hello
Try by unplug the device from AC power socket, wait for a while, say 10 minutes or so, and replugh it again. This is the first way to reset the device. In most cases, if the fault is due to a general reset problem, this process must rectfy it. If not:

On the front panel of the unit, press and Hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and Hold STOP button, and wait at least three seconds before you release both the buttons. You will need to setup you Menu preferences because this reset procedure will return the DVDs' Menus to the Cactory settings and also erases the contents of the disc library.
If you want anymmore assistance, feel free to get me by Fixya. OK.

SOURCE: How do I print an operator's manual?

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, try a cd cleaning kit and follow instructions, if this fails the whole assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace.

Why does my CD player display "no disc"?


I had a similar problem with my DVD player. Cleaning the laser eye helped fix my problem. You can clean it manually if you are not afraid to remove the cover of the unit or you can try a cleaning disc. The eye can collect dust and prevent it from reading the ID sector of the music CD.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?


Hello
If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

I cant play cds on my wharfedale pcd 6200 usb


I think you need to press and hold the Play button (marked PLAY/PAUSE) to switch between CD playback and the USB port (you can store mp3 files on a USB stick and play them directly) on the front of the device.

Try inserting a disc, switching the unit to CD mode, press and hold Play until the display changes and the CD spins up...

Might just work?!

Disk is "shot" out from the player still spinning fast


Maybe got damaged during shipping?? Try also to clean the lens. Theres not alot the consumer can do with a cd or dvd player as you need special equipment to work on these units as there are no user serviceable parts inside. If its a good unit maybe it would be worth a look at by a pro. Good Luck

NAD C521 discs not spinning


The CD player has a sensor that is supposed to detect when a disc is inserted and spin it up etc. yours might be the problem, either it has some loose connections (that you haven't noticed) or it simply misbehaves. Another thing could be the motor itself that somehow 'misses' the spin up signal and needs a 'manual' boost. The best solution in your case is probably to bring it to some lab.
