I have an Emerson Audio System (MS3110) and the cd's won't play and the screen is displaying a message "Toc Read". What does this mean? We've tried to reset it but it still does not work. The radio plays fine. The cd's won't spin to play. Can you help?
Ok, I too have one of these crappy models. I found that if you shift the laser to the side it resets itselfs when your try to load the CD where it says "TOC READ." The only problem is with mine if your do get it to spin and read the CD it might not go to the next song. The reason being is it doesn't seem to slide along its tracks. Idk!!! All I know is its a piece of ****! Trash It!!!!!!

Re: CD's won't play
I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.

Firstly double check that the recordable discs you have bear the label "Digital Audio" on them as per the attached picture.
Secondly what happens when you go through the finialise procedure in the manual?
Do you see the ?FIn--d? display when you select the finialise button?
Do you see ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators blinking at the next step?
Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
Make sure discs are clean, purchase a lense cleaner to remove any grime or particles from the CD lense. If still no joy your laser is either out of focus, miss-tracked or completely shot and requires replacement. If it's the latter, rplacements can cost from $50 upwards depending upon what is required to fix the problem. You may be wise to replace the system OR purchase a seperate CD player (as used in a seperates system) and plug it into the aux input.
TOC stands for Table of Contents. On a MiniDisc recorder or CD recorder, a Table Of Contents MUST be written before a disc is usable. On A player, a TOC must be read before the unit knows where to find the songs. Sounds like the laser is NOT reading the TOC, so you will hear nothing until that is corrected (clean lens or replace unit). Try a storebought CD, as perhaps is doesn't like your own burned CD's and most units built before 2000 will not read your own CD's that you make.
of Contents) Information referring to, for example, the table of
contents, total numbers, total names, playing time, time, date, data
position etc. When a new recording is made on the MiniDisc, the new
information is updated.found this on a web site
Solved the problem myself.
Repositioned the printed circuit board with the CD Drawer open/close limit switch.
I suspect that the board shifted during shipping and failed to trigger the closed drawer position.
Player is now working.
Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged
in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO
button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR
ALL" appears, then power on your system.
This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....
