    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.

  • 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.

    I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc

    Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
    1. The disc inserted is bad.
    2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

    In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

    if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

    Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

    To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
    if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.

    I hav a clarion auto cd/stereo displaying err 6 please explain, thank you

    Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
    Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD.
    Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination.
    Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable.
    Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM.
    Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.

    For error code 6:
    Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!

    Cd will not eject from cd disc error message and will not read the cd.. disc errors on cd2 and cd4,but will eject the cd.will not play cds. have unplug both units for an hour. no change...

    My first guess would be that the loading belt is slipping. This will prevent the cd from loading completely and thus won't read. The belt costs around $2-$3. Care must be taken when opening up this unit.

    Let me know if you need any additional info.

    Cd will not eject. Keeps giving message "Now OPC" but will not do anything and will not eject cd either.

    To remove a stuck CD from Tascam CC222 MKII

    This solved the "Now OPC" problem

    1. Unplug unit

    2. Remove the top cover, (3 screws on each side and 3 on the back, lift cover).

    3. Plug in unit.

    4. Power on the unit to observe the drive spindle spinning clockwise, (1" disc on top of drive).

    5. Turn off unit, do not unplug at this time.

    6. Use a small screwdriver to prevent the drive spindle from spinning.

    7. Power on the unit preventing the spin.

    8. In approximately 10 seconds the display will read "Disc Error" and the CD tray will open.

    9. Remove the screwdriver and the disc.

    10. Turn off the unit and unplug.

    11. Replace the cover.

    12. Use a better quality disc.

    My 1-2-3 system will not read/play my cd's. It reads "bad disc." I've tried differnt cd's new-old.

    Try unplugging the main cable (is also powersupply) from your 1-2-3 unit and replugged again after half a minute.
    This is a sort of hard reset and this did work for me.

    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.
