It could be that the lens needs to be cleaned. best soltion is to go to an elctronic store and ask them for a lens cleaner it should be very cheap if that doesnt solve your problem then ill try to find another solution

Cd player won't work on my CFD-560


Hello
Insert a lens cleaning disc into the system, and play it at least three times, by eject it out and reinsert in each time. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your Cd player should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

Sony boom box model# CFD-So1 serial# 2813391 The CD part says there is no disc in. I tried several DISC WITH NO LUCK. Please help


This error "disc error", "no disc present" or " can\'t read cd". This all error are related to lens problem. If the lens is dirty or if the lens is got cracked or if the lens is getting blocked then it can happen. The lens is very thin glass material. You can say the lens is the "eye" of the unit. If the eye is dirty then it will not see the object. The unit needs to be opened carefully and this lens has to be checked. If any dust is collected clean it. Using the cd lens cleaner helps, but if the dust is got stuck hard or if its any other internal part then the lens cleaner will not help. If the lens is got cracked then the lens assembly has to be replaced.
You can use dry tissue to clean the lens. once the unit is opened. ------------ ------------- In most of the cases, this problem is not related to cd.But still get the cd checked in any other player too, this will confirm the fault. Also try other various cds in the boombox cd player and confirm. But if the cds not playing in other player too then its faulty cd.But this is very rare. Most probably the fault is related to boom box cd player. In the boom box cd player unit there are two main parts. One is cd spinning motor and other is cd reading lens(its also called "EYE" of the cd player).But many times the cd spins internally and does not play. If you can hear the noise of cd spin inside then its lens problem and not the motor. But if there is no spin noise in the unit then both lens and motor are to be checked. The motor is not spinning because its short/blocked or its connections are got loose. It has to be checked. The lens is not reading the cd, because its got dirty or its got cracked and faulty. The boom box cd player lens is made up of thin glass and its very delicate. Many a times dust gets collected on the lens, so the lens stops reading the cd and it do not play. Some times there is no dirt on lens but it gets cracked, if by mistake any pressure is applied on the unit or up-side down cd is placed in the tray or internal short circuit has occurred. These are few possibilities of lens not working. But in most cases its dirty lens causing this problem. SO open the tray by pressing the eject button, then unplug the unit from main power outlet, by keeping the cd tray open. Then take air blower and blow air in the unit. Please remove, if there is any cd in the tray while blowing air. Just blow air for few minutes. Then take a dry tissue and clan the cd placing tray externally and then reconnect the power and see, if that is helping or not. If the problem is same as before, then disassemble the unit and clean the lens manually by hand using dry tissue paper and then see if its helping. But take care while cleaning the lens with dry tissue you doesn't apply too much pressure on lens or any other parts. Also before removing any screw to disassemble the unit. Take a marker with you ready. Just mark the position of parts and screws before removing. If you have a cell phone with web cam in it then take a photo of the internal parts before moving any parts. Disassembly is not very hard but reassembling is not easy. So this pictures and marks with help you for reassembly. ----------But if lens is cracked internally then the lens assembly has to be replaced. If motor wires are loose then you can easily get it re-soldered by soldering machine. You can get it replaced from local cd /dvd player repair center. They have these parts with them. --------------- This should help. Thanks. Helpmech.

I have a sony CFD-S01 which will play commercial cd's but when a cd-r is inserted it either won't recognize the disk or it jumps constantly after appros 10 sec, any ideas?


The CFD-S01 is designed for use with CD-R and CD-RW discs. With that in mind a few things come to mind. Are the CD-R discs you are using music or data discs? There is a difference and some CD players do not get along with data discs and won't play them well if at all. Also the burn rate used can have an effect - too fast and it won't play well. If a disc doesn't play at all it might not be finalized. A disc must be finalized on the recorder it was burned on before it is playable on any other machine.

The CD player will play some purchased CD-s but will not play others. The ones that it will not play do NOT iniate the disc motor but a click is heard and the display reads NO DISC. I have cleaned the...


If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!

Sony CFD-G500 cd player


There is an inherent problem with this unit that is not the reader. I noticed that the red light which comes on when the super base is activated will sometimes flash while the unit is first trying to read the CD. It seems to be in sync with the disc spinning motor of the CD player. I have repaired a couple of these by checking and resoldering poor quality solder joints on the CD sub board and a few on the main circuit board. But this has not repaired all of them. Sony need to look into this.

Won't read disk


I had this problem on my Panasonic since it has a mechanised front tray loader. There are a couple of things you can do: clean the CD with toothpaste and dry the CD with a fabric cloth - not paper as this will scratch the CD.

Vacuum out the CD player by using a crevice tool and carefully insert into the mouth of the CD player to get rid of any dust.

If the CD has been burnt from a computer, it may not recognise on the Sony unit even if it states it can play CD's from PC/Mac. Usually after a CD has been burnt its best to play it on your computer before transferring to the stereo unit of your choice.

Usually the clicking noise means that the music is trying to get through but something is stopping it.

Cd player cant read disc


Check that the disk is still spinning. If not then suspect the spindle motor
