I have a brand new Acoustic Solutions SP142 CD/MP3 Player which has just stopped responding.There is a disc ini it at the moment and if I press the 'open' button, the screen displays 'open' for 2 seconds but nothing happens and none of the other functions are responsive at all.The power light is on and all cables are secure.I would be grateful if anyone has any trouble-shooting tips before resorting to taking it into the shop.Thank you !

try another disc make sure it's a cd from a retailer. sometime home made disc don't play on older cd players because of formats. as for eject problems you might find you have to send it back to the retailer for repair
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize
Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a
disc so a CD player can recognize the number of
tracks, the total time for each track, and their location
on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to
playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a
CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support
CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on
CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult
your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported
Finalizing is necessary to:
• be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on
a CD player
• prevent further recording on a disc
• avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc
• record text information onto a disc you record
• A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto
• A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more
• The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or
• SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop.
The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time.
2 Push FINALIZE.
FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.
"This CD player can play normal CDs p/us CD Recordable (CD-R) and CD Rewriteable (CD-RW) discs. However the playability of CD-RIRW discs may be affected by the type of software that was used in 'ripping' the tracks from the original discs and 'burning' the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may a/so be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed, this is nof an indication of any problems with your player."
So try to burn the disc with another software or buy different CD-r. You also want to make sure that you Burned the tracks as audio files and not MP3 file, because your player can not read MP3s.
If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:
1. Searching For Your Code
If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your
brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try
the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you
reach the end of all the codes for this device type.
the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.),
and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.)
button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY
instead of POWER)
Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You
may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the
entire library of codes.
your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in
the code for your device.
This is not for connecting an MP3 player, but rather for playing MP3-CD's. Using your computer and a CD burner, you can burn a CD with up to about ten hours worth of MP3s on it. The procedure for creating the disc varies depending on your burning software. In Nero, for example, you would select "Music" and then "MP3 Disc" and then select the songs you want to put on the disc. For other software you just select "burn a data disc" and then select the MP3 files you want.
Once you have a CD full of MP3s, put it in the Packard-Bell stereo's CD player, and you will be able to play all the MP3 files that are on the CD. THe advantage, of course, is being able to put ten hours on one CD instead of only 80 minutes.
