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.

The disk drives in the 640C/740C are Sony. Most people renew the laser, but that is tricky dealing with static electricity. Try renewing the flatcable from the laser unit to the servo circuit. Cheap. If this does not work, you can always renew the laser as well. Beware. There are (Chinese) non Sony lasers on the market. Success!

I cannot open my cambridge audio 640A compact disc


This is a common issue with all belt-drive cd players, all you have to do is to change that belt and you should be done, or take it to a shop for servicing, as this is a part of a simple service maintenance routine, cheap fix though.

Hello

Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

Discs stuck inside CD Player. Screen says ''Reading.''


Try resetting the CD (Cambridge soundworks) by unplugging, then repluging. Then hold down the eject button while you turn on the power.
