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 am sure that you have checked to make sure that it is not on MUTE or ATT. This will silence the speakers. Just wanted to start with the easiest thing and go from there.

Not reading any cd format


Hi i have just been able to sort this problem, if your system says "NO CD" after it is inserted then the CD is not sitting right inside, solution for this is, join the philips club (free) and update the firmware and update the Gracenote software

1, insert the cd so it is in then turn it off and unplug then take another cd insert it in slowly to push the other one down a bit until it stops (may only move a couple of millimetres, you are only using the cd as it fits the slot so don’t try and insert it!!) plug the centre back in and turn the centre on, it will boot back up and eject the cd that’s still in, wait until it is fully booted and insert the cd again, that should work

OR

2, insert the cd so it is in then turn it off and unplug then you can open the product and physically push the cd down (be careful when you take the lid off as the cd will not be fully slotted down and there are a couple of cables that can pop out but they are easy to put back and obvious) Put the lid back on and plug the centre back in and turn the centre on, it will boot back up and eject the cd that’s still in, wait until it is fully booted and insert the cd again, that should work

any probs just mail back and ill help as much as i can

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.

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4


I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.

Fw316C cd player will not read discs


Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one
