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.

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.
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.
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....
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.
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.
