    chances are optical lens is defective OR flexible cable connected with optical lens and circuit board may be cracked.

Sounds like a dirty lens or laser failure.

Seek professional help.
The lasers are not as expensive as they used to be, get an estimate.

SOURCE: CD not reading CDs

I got mine to work. Not exactly sure what I did but I think this is how it went:

I think I inserted 3 CDs. I went to tape mode (or game mode) and waited for a while. I heard the disc tray making a noise without me doing anything. Then I pressed disk skip while still in the other mode (tape or game). The stereo spun the disc after skipping to the next disc. I waited again until the disc stopped spinning. Then I went to disc mode. I think I let it read the disc by itself and it showed the tracks and the time on the LCD display. I pressed play and it played!

I hope this helps everyone.

SOURCE: WON'T PLAY CD'S READS "NO DISC"

  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    How to fix CD player that reads no disc on my shelf unit?


    Presuming that other sources work okay and the the cables are connected correctly.....Try a CD Lens cleaner.

    If that doesn't work then it's time to open up the unit and manually clean the laser lens. If that still doesn't work then the laser might be dead. Replacement parts may be available. Whether or not you can do this as a DIY repair though is questionable. It depends on your skill..

    CD unit unit displays ''No Disc'' when there is a disc in slot 1


    What does it do if you put 3 discs in and select each one? You don't say what it does with the other two trays. It would help to know that they work. If not, you have a bigger issue. Let me know.

    Teac lp- u200 cd player doesn't work


    Sicne this is a new system, don't waste time on it. Return it for an exchange. The CD portion is not working. The reading message indicates that the unit detects a disc, but can not read it. This is usually a problem with the optical assembly or the processing board. Neither should be a problem at this time. Replace it under warranty.

    Common Problem with AIWA 3 disc machines. I have 3 in my service shop right now. For tray not rolling in on it's own, the drive rollers have to be changed, along with the Drive Belt. Also, for CD not reading, try CD lens cleaner.
