Question about Sony CMT-HPX9 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Reading CD message

My system worked fine untill one day it suddenly stopped playing CDs. I had some kids over at my house, may be they goofed up something. The message which flashes up on the display is - READING CD. Any idea what might be wrong ? The tape plays fine.

Re: Reading CD message

You can use a CD Cleaner as a first step, if it didn?t work the problem need an expert technician to clean the lens or replace it. Good Luck Toufic Malek

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds

Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

Philips mc235B/37 CD player no longers plays CDs. I get a "No Disc" error or an "Error" message. CD's often don'teven spin. If they do, they spin slowly, then stop, and start spinning in reverse before...

if you can see the laser then gentaly with a soft cloth wipe the lens
and then try

if that doesnt work then i recoment that you call philips and see what they say because it is slightly older than one year they might replace it for free
if not call the shop that you bought it from

A disc is in the Bose Wave system and will not play or eject

Unplug the system. Turn the entire unit upside down. The CDs will eject. After I tried this (found it online somewhere), it worked fine for about 2 months. Now it suddenly turns on by itself and ejects CDs (creepy). But at least the original problem was solved.

Sharp XL-HP505 Not playing CDs

Hi try this.....

Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR ALL" appears, then power on your system.

This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....

Hope this helps

CDs won't play

Maybe you should fix the cds or clean them or try to fix the disc reader in the radio.

CD player fails to read CDs

Cd cleaning disc is not advisable to clean your laser lens.. all you have to do is manually cleaning method! open the unit go to laser lens and clean it with 100% cotton buds then rub it slightly clockwise, but careful this is sensitive parts.

DVD display indicates "no disc"

Try a lens cleaner cd, as when the lens gets misaligned or if it's quite old, it will find it harder to read a DVD as the tracks are much closer together than that of a VCD as they are cd's and their tracks are wider apart and easier to read.
