Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My Sony Walkman CD player won't play. It has new batteries but when I push play it acts like it is trying to work for a few seconds then says no disc. The same discs play fine on other players.

First try and clean the laser with a Q-tip with rubbing alchol on it. gently wipe the lens with the Q-tip. Then allow to dry for a couple of seconds. Try again if problem persists. Try to get the disc spinning wth your finger. While spinning clockwise close the lid and see if it takes off. If it does you have a bad spidle motor and it will need to be replaced. If it does not respond to either. I would consider replacement. The cost to repair by the time you pay a tech and parts you could get a new one with warranty. Generally if these need more than just a cleaning most people just replace due to cost of repair.

Hi Lambo, 1) Your disc may be bad: scratches on surface, the surface maybe dirty, the disc is maybe bended,... Try with other discs, if the error occurs see next steps. If not, the initial disc was bad, but don't throw away, you may be able to clean it. 2) The Laser-optics in your Walkman can also suffer: - open your Walkman as if you would load a disk; look inside and you will see a little lens inside: clean it by using a ear-cleaner ( little stick with cotton on one or both ends). First dip the cotton end in some pure natural alcohol ( ethyl) and wipe very carefully over the little lens surface 3) The drive-mechanism of the Laser may also be cause; the only thing you can do on the field; the little lens ( see 2 ) normally should be near the end of a channel which you can recognize as the cut-out of the plastic . While reading a CD the lens moves thru this channel. You can try to push very softly this lens towards the nearest end of the channel. It often helps. 4) The Laser can be to its end of life; you can ask to change the opto-electrical mechanism, but I'm afraid it will cost you nearly as much as a new player; if you can buy a second hand might be even cheaper. Important for the future: - don't write with markers on discs; these texts release small quantities of fumes on laser-lenses - smokers pollute also with nicotine-fumes their lenses and discs Hope you can get nice music ASAP; let us know

another thing to do is listen to the unit as it spins up, you may be able to hear the disk spinning (though you can definitly see it if you open it up) and you should also be able to hear the mechanism that moves the optics allong the rail. If you hear that but still no read, you might try opening up the case (6 small phillips screws and then a small bit of prying to open) and look to see if the small thin plastic wireing harness is fully seated in the connector on the main board. If not loosen the small brown retaining clip and push the plastic strap with the traces fully into to connector and push the retaining clip back in. I have fixed 2 d-nf420 units this way.

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.
