After my post, I found that someone had had a similar problem and had solved it by unplugging the radio cd from the mains, then plugging it back in and holding down the eject button when switching back on. This reset the CD drive and all is now well.
Most likely a dirty lens or an optical assembly problem.
If its a dirty lens, the issue can be easily rectified by using a CD lens cleaner, available from nearly any electrical store.
If cleaning with the lens cleaner did not help, then it could be a major issue. Try unplugging the system from the power source for at least 15 minutes and replug and see first. If it works, great! If not...
If the lens has become opaque or scratched, or there is a problem with the assembly, then the only solution is to take it in for servicing. Mind you, this can be a pretty expensive repair, so you'll have to decide between getting it repaired or purchasing a brand new unit altogether...Shop around for repair costs and then decide which route to take..
In the front side of the dvd drive you will see a small hole ...so to eject that cd put one niddle in that hole and . Now
press the button at just after that apply a force on niddle .suddenly
you will notice that cd will come outside ,if not try more times and
you will learn to eject the cd when you are unable to do it by pressing
the eject button... ------------------------------------------- Low feed backs hurt my
ratings and I am tring to help you with your problem,so let me know
that the information i given you is helpfull or not.
Try a lens cleaner cd, as when the lens gets misaligned or if it's quite old, it will find it harder to read a DVD as the tracks are much closer together than that of a VCD as they are cd's and their tracks are wider apart and easier to read.
If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.
Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.
Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
good luck :-)
