Question about Sony SCD-777ES CD Player

1 Answer

The player died - any suggestions?

Starting in Nov. 2006, the player gradually failed to read discs, taking longer and longer to start playing music. I think it also played at a different starting point than commanded, on occaison. My stereo shop sent it to two repair shops in Syracuse NY, with no success. It's a 1999 unit. Can anyone please give me advice on who might be able to fix the player and what I should expect to pay?

Is having trouble reading or tracking disc.I opened top and while playing disc the tracking mechanism goes out then back in and starts playing where it stopped?

You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

CD not playing with bose wave system but same cd playing other audio player , On bose wave music system it is appearing CD is not reading . Please advise solution

The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.

When I load a cd in my Stanton C324 it reads "No


Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

MY cd player is not playing cd

If you can gain access to the lens, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are starting to fail. You should be able to find replacement optics for around $40 or so.

Will not read dvd, says loading, will stop and say no disc

Yeah I ve heard many people saying this. It is mostly because either the disc is damaged or the dvd lens reader has been damaged ..that is the only way by how it says "no disc" so better check with some shop around..or with the authorized dealer itself..ok

Denon DCM 390 not longer reads discs--HELP!

Hi there, this lens may be dirty or it may have a thin layer of heat film that is causing it to not read in a consistent manner. i would try to clean the lens with a good CD lens cleaner. if the cleansing doesn't restore the lens to its original reading state, this will confirm lens assembly failure and you will need to replace this assembly.

Music on CD sounds like it's vibrating

Locate your CD reader bulb just inside the tray. Clean it good with rubbing alcohol. It still has a chance that it can be saved.Beacuse it is still reading. If it stops reading, you will have to buy a new player . Also if cleaning it does not works.

Disney Princess CD Player will not play music

try cleaning the laser with a q-tip if the laser is dirty from finger prints or dust it won't be able to read the disc therefore won't play. Clean laser and if that doesn't work then the child may have damaged the player in a fashion that would be better to get him/her a new one.

CD player won't play random

the most likely problem is a weak or failing optical pickup. try a cleaning disc first there may be dust on the lens. do not use any liquid to clean the lens. remember this is an optical system if it can't focus properly or "see well" it can't read.

Technics SL-MC7 / Can't play cd's any more!

Friend. Did you try a CD that you purchased from the store? if so and this problem persist, then you need to get you a new player. If the CDs are scratched, some players will not play them, If they are burnt in mp3 format, (or data format) your player may not recognised this also. Please try playig a regular CD that you bought from the store, if this work, then you will need to reburn your music as a regular CD, hoping that the SL-MC700. reads copied. It should. But please checks these steps.

Please let me know what works.

Thank you
