Sony Discman D-E301 does not recognize disc

I vary carefully took unit apart and carefully lubricated the carrier. Now when I load a disc and turn it on, the display says ''no disc''. and shuts down. I have cleaned the eye with a Q tip and alcohol. I am not a novice with small electronic equipment, but this beats me? What am I overlooking?

How do put a video on the philips mp3


Hi,
You can't put video on it. It's a discman with mp3 capabilities. Meaning you can play shop purchased cds or play cdr discs with mp3 audio data files on. It sounds as though you are confusing mp3 with mp4. Mp4 is a video codec/file format.

My sony N50 won't play and reads no disc when htere is one in it. The batteries are fine


It is quite possible that your optical unit is faulty. First of all clean the lens on the optical head using an ear bud, softly rub for a good glazing. then try to see if it works if not the lens unit assembly must be replaced and must be done with care and experience.so take help to replce but make sure the cost is within a practical level. Good day

My DVD player is not working and also not recognizing the CD


If the DVD is not turning at all then it is important to check for the free spinning of the disc, any friction on the motor. If the DVD turns and does not read then clean the head and check. if not it is possible that the optical head is defective and needs a replacement. Decide after you find the cost of a new unit which should be original and good. Good day

Keeps on saying there is no disc in walkman when there is?


This is a confirmed ffault of either the optical head being dirty or faulty. First use a good swab, or a good earbud to carefully wipe clean the lens to shine well. check if the disc turns or tries to turn. open and check if the cd is free in rotation on the spindle. If so your optical head needs to be replaced with the same type. Proceed to change if the cost is resonable to you and a true replacement is available.
Helpful? Good day

I have a Sony Psyc CD Walkman D-Ej010 and I will have a cd in there at it will play for a few minutes and then stop and say no-disc. What could be the problem?


There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
  • For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
  • Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
  • Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
  • If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
  • NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
  • If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
  • Attempt to play the disc again.
  • Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
  • If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
  • Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

If the issue persists, please click hear to locate the repair facility near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Blinking "disc" error


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
