Question about Philips MC235 Shelf System

Open Question

Cd stopped working on Philips MC235

I tried to play a cd this morning and it would not play. Now the machine will not read any cd. When I tried to play the cd, it spun initially but then it sounded like the cd was catching or srcaping on somthing. the cd spun one way then the other and then stopped. an error apeared that said "no cd". This is a cd that I listened to yesterday with no issues and did not remove from the radio. I tried putting another cd in, but got the same error, this time with out the cd even spinning.

Is this new? Or still covered by the Philips? If it is you better not touch it. If not then I would clean the laser/lens with a cleaning product that you can get from electrical shops.

You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

Its sounds like if you want to keep this radio you will have to replace the CD drive. Look in your yellow pages for a electronics repair shop and see if you can get parts for it.

I have a hardtime finding blank CD RW that work


Hi!
I have the same problem too. Tried with, of course only audio cd, TDK (no-opc rate approx 80%), Philips (40/50% and sometimes not good quality on different readers). The best, i.e. less no-opc rate, I found are Sony Premium.

Sometimes it's ok if after no-opc you turn off and restart with test (play+stop+turn on).

When my dvd player starts doing this it usually means that it is going bad and you may need to replace the dvd.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

Display Backlight failure - Philips MC235


Most likely there is a bad connection either at the display itself or in the power supply. If you are comfortable working with this equipment and can solder, try resoldering the pins for the display itself first.

Keep us posted.
