Question about CD Players

1 Answer

I get a disk error indication when I try to play any disk.

I haven't used my Magnavox CDB650 in a while (6 months- 1 year). When I tried to play a disk the other day, It loaded the disk, appeared to be spinning inside, but I got a ''disk error'' indication. I tried other disks, and got the same result. It could be dust related. If so, are there products I could get to clean the laser?

What is wrong with my CD player?


Great player. Although the manual does not say a thing about this error, I'll try.
I think you use normal CD's and not disks you or someone burned for you.
The only thing I can think of is the CD must be dirty to scratched.
Or if you try to play disks, burned in a PC, that could cause trouble too. Although all CD and DVD burners in a PC, can play these disks, not all CD players can. Only the ones where the manufacturer says the drive is compatible with CD-R and or CD-RW.
A normal CD has metal as a reflector and gives a clear image from the ones and zeros on the disk. CD-R and CD-RV only have a dye on which a laser has changed the colour. Not giving a clear distinction between ones and zeros. The better CD players, have a stable motor and so on, but the laser is not set up for the dye disks. And although sometimes a disk can be played, for the player it looks lie a "dirty" disk.
I hope this helps.
If not, perhaps you should clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. DONT open the player and DONT touch the laser.

I have not played my cd changer for a year and when I just try to play a cd now the system appears to look for cd but the word error comes up on the display. Just the word error not number. Any ideans...


Hi!

I dont't think that your cd-changer is broken. It may only need some cleaning. One year is time enough for dust to set on optical reader. I suggest to use a cleaning disk, available on every store selling optical media.

Hope it helped,

Read error


Some recorders, especially Phillips REQUIRE using the "Music" CD's. It was a lame attempt at copyrright enforcement.

I AM HAVING ERROR EACH TIME I TRY TO PLAY A CD.


When your CD does not read any disk, and returns error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, or a faulty spindle motor unit.

If it is a lens problem, then you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , the unit will start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all, and returning error.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the player , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the lens, or the whole drive unit.

My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...


I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

Cd's always skip


You have done well for 10 years laser changes are in order

When a cd skips it is due to laser diode becoming weak over time not producing an original beam causing focus prolbems ,hence skipping discs

No disk


Try cleaning the lens directly by carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this with your results.

Post recording


maybe its the format of the material that is recorded on the disk. I.E. maybe MP3 when you should have used CD audio format or some such problem.
