    dsom,
    Thanks for the suggestion. Cleaning lens did not work. Next on the list to try is:
    1. Dirty or damaged objective lens.
    2. Loading (mechanical) not completed reliably.
    3. Damaged lens suspension or damaged lens cover preventing free movement.
    4. Dirt, gummed up lubrication, or damage in sled drive mechanism.
    5. Dirty/defective limit switch or sensor.
    6. Defective spindle motor.
    7. Spindle table height incorrectly set.
    8. Bad component in optical pickup.
    9. Cracks in ribbon cable to optical pickup.
    10. Need to adjust servo (or less likely, optical) alignment.
    11. Faulty power supply, electronics, or control logic.
    12. Bad connections including missing/erratic optical deck shield.
    13. External interference.

    CD lens cleaner did not work. Removed the top of the player to get to the lens. Used a special cleaning solution (Isopropyl alcohol might work), cleaned the lens. Works fine now.

Sometimes CD player lenses can be covered with dust, smoke etc. You can purchase a "CD Lens Cleaner" to see what happens then.

Cambridge Audio Azur 740C CD Player


The disk drives in the 640C/740C are Sony. Most people renew the laser, but that is tricky dealing with static electricity. Try renewing the flatcable from the laser unit to the servo circuit. Cheap. If this does not work, you can always renew the laser as well. Beware. There are (Chinese) non Sony lasers on the market. Success!

Cd not able to play last few tracks knocking sounds


CD Mechanism is possibly faulty. Sometimes won't track the outside of the disc properly. Try other CD's of about the same playing time, if more than 1 disc does it, the fault is usually the mechanism. (If the disc is a lot longer than the standard max CD length 0f 74 minutes, some players may have a problem with them. This was usually with older generation players, so may not be applicable here.)

I have several mp3 audio files I ripped from CDs where my player does not recognize the Album or Artist. I have the files on my hard drive, when I copy to my player, it puts them into an "Unknown" folder....


Hello,

When the info is missing, check the settings in the RIP function of Windows Media Player.
1. During ripping there should be an internet connection.
2. For WMP11 the setting for retreiving media info from the internet should be selected under RIP > More Options... > Privacy:

For more info about getting the matching media info, look under RIP > Help with Ripping.
Getting the information directly, when ripping a new CD or
afterwards when the album is already in mp3 format.

If this was helpful I'd appreciate your reply.
When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

Alpine CDE-102 w/usb port: will not


Hello desoren,

The receiver may not be set to recognize MP3 files.

Press and hold "sound setup" until the unit enters setup mode. Rotate the volume knob to "play mode" and press "enter". Check that the setting is CD/MP3 (not CD/MA), or rotate the volume knob to change the setting to CD/MP3 and press enter again. Press and hold "sound setup" again until the unit exits sound setup.

If the files are still not recognized, I'd try using a different USB drive, a different computer to write the MP3's, and/or a different application to download or rip the original music content.

Hope this helps.

I have burned a .wma video file on a cd-r, on my computer it runs perfectly... only when i put it in my dvd player it say's stop and won't play. Can someone help me out ? Thanks Jeff


Several causes for non-playback:
1. Your CD player doesn't like CD-R
2. Your CD player doesn't recognize wma
3. The music you converted to wma is copy protected and the CD player wont play due to that.

Solutions:
1. Most likely this isn't the problem as most working CD/DVD players recognize CD-R. Double check with your user manual.
2. Check your DVD player's playback formats. Most will play mp3 and wav. If that's the case, rip your music to mp3.
3. There are many hacks out there to remove copy protection. This you'll have to figure out on your own :)

My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.


Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.

No recognize disks CD and formats MP3


I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

Unfortunately, if the player will no longer read any commercial cd that you attempt to play or MP3 disks, the unit is defective and needs to be replaced. The unit has a 90 day warranty from the date of purchase. You will need the receipt in order to receive a warranty exchange.

If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!
