Cd doesnt play, it just opens up. is there something i can do the stero is new

If the CD spins but does not track or read any disc you can try and clean the lens head of the CD player. Use a cd cleaner and try. if not the possibility of the optical head being faulty is high.

Everything works on my emerson MS9700 except the cd player. the display keeps saying no rdy. how can i fix this?

If the indication says" not ready " it means that the disc is not reading the data present on it . It is possible that the disc is not scanned by the optical head to be ready to play.
So it is possible that the optical head is defective or weak, please try to clean the optical eye with ear bud very softly or use a disc cleaner.
If there is no result the head can be faulty.
If the set was not used for long time please keep it powered ON.
Also the processing section/main board can be a suspect.

Emerson ms3105 won't play cd's wont even spin

kungfuz...I have had two of these emerson cd players. One is in my home and is still working after 3 1/2 years. The other was purchased for our church just over a year ago and it has stopped working. The disks will turn a little then stop. Occasionally it will still play a complete hymn but this is rare. Also a grinding sound can be heard with the ear close to the unit. I think when you pushed the combo of buttons and it stopped working, this is likely just a fluke and it was probably going bad anyway. I may be wrong but I have been down this road myself and your problem sounds very similar to mine. I can't offer you much encouragement...sorry...!

CD's won't play

I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.
