There is one of two things that is wrong with it..

1 the laser lens is dirty and needs to be cleaned witch you can fine a laser lens cleaner at your local radio shack.

2 the laser lens could have been bumped off the track so is that is the case you will have to poen it up and use something soft like a Que tip and gently nudge it.

It's probably not the lens. Try turning on it's right side and cycle the power switch with a CD in the tray. Betcha it starts. The little vinyl gear has stripped. I'm looking for one right now and will let you know a P/N when I find it.

Make sure you are burning the audio files in a format it can read. The standered is Mp3, but some times you need to burn them in other formats.

Hi, I have a Tascam CD-A500 combo CDplayer/cassette recorder. The CD player has started skipping with very minimal vibration. This is new and never had these problems before. It is the most sensitive when...


Laser assembly is losing its ability to properly focus on the disk surface. It is going to La La land and needs to be replaced.

Get another player since repair is not cost effective.

CD player does not recognise some CDs. When placed in the drawer the deck displays "no disc" if another CD player is used the disc works fine


I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.

TASCAM CD-A500 - No Volum Control Switch


You control the volume by the amplifier or receiver that you plugged the tascam into. The only volume control on the tascam appears to be for headphones, the other volume control is for recording gain input.

Cd player reads disc error


maybe you need to change the optical eye now.
but first try to adjust the variable resistor/trimpot resistor.
try this options to your player.

(TIP)
if using a cd/vcd/dvd products, we only should play a cd/vcd/dvd dics without a bad scratches. the scratches are making the optical eye worn-out easily.

Tascam CD-A500 'no disk' problem


try to listen to sound inside if the any motor is working through the disc tray. then try to open it (if you want though) then observe it.
after that if the motors are ok, try to adjust your optical lens variable risistor.
note if the optical lens is not emitting a red light your optical lens is the problem, changing it is the only solution.
