CD's won't play

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?

    Cds won't play. Got them to spin briefly. Diplays "TOC READ" and only radio will work. Turning it off and back on does not help.

    I had the same problem with "ToC Read" errors on 2 Emerson CD players. I contacted Emerson and they repaired / replaced my unit free of charge.

    Emerson MS3110 I have the same problem. After reading your entries, I tried hitting the unit a few times and it did finally start to spin albeit a lot of squeeking. Only plays 30 seconds of a song though and then stops. Servicing it costs more than it's worth so are there any other suggestions out there?

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!!!!!!

    Shifting the laser actually made it play. I had to shift the laser on all 3 though. But it WORKS now!

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.

What does TOC read mean, the cd does not spin


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.

This is usually caused by a faulty laser.

Most DVDs have two lasers. One for DVD & one for CD.

Sounds like the CD laser has failed.
