My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.

I have tried several discs and the panel just flashes dashs. I played a CD the other night. The following day I went to play a different CD and this problem happened. I bought the CD player a few years ago, but I have hardly used it. What could the problem be and what would cause this problem?

Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.

How to repair dvd player v zon says wrong disc


Hi Vzon DVD Player,
Before you fix anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem first to know what needs fixing. Since DVD players can play different kind of media formats like Audio CD, VCD, mp3, etc, please try the following
1. Turn on the DVD player and set the program to DVD. some player needs to be setup due to multiple functionality (can play mp3 on flash drive, etc..)
2. insert different Media CD as mentioned above if your player will play them. (if they play, try to insert the DVD you want to play)
3. Try different DVD disc
4. If all the above don't work, try to clean the laser head using the standard disc cleaner.
5. retry the DVD disc
6. If the player still don't play your DVD, probable issue would be the laser head or the disc motor.
7. Please bring them to you nearest Electronic repair shop for further assessment.

Good luck and thanks!

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Won't Play Games, DVD and CD fine


I am guessing that when it was refurbished, it was because of a disc drive error... so i am about 90% sure that they didn't flash the disc drive and that would be their mistake. Disc Drives have their own memory and would still be able to play cd's and dvd's without problems... but if they are not flashed correctly through a sata computer with the correct hardware, they will not play games. My opinion is that you should contact the place which you bought it from, it's not your fault.

`Sony CD player won't play burned discs


Many of the older Car CD Players will not play CD-R's or they may with static sounds behind the music. What you need to do is try using a different brand of cd-r disc. If this doesn't work then it means that you may need to replace the CD player because the model that you have may not be decoded in order to play CD-R, CD-RW, play MP3's or anything of that such.
Get back to me if this doesn't work I'll help you square it away.
