Usually if something is shutting down as the volume is turned up, it is caused by a bad speaker. Try disconnecting one speaker at a time, and see if you can turn up the remaining speakers until you find the one that is causing the problem.
This can often be solved by opening the cover and blowing on the optical head to displace dust and any debris that is fouling between the optics and the actuator that controls the head position. It isn't fool proof but will fix perhaps 40% of units. Take a can of air duster (aerosol blower) and blow the little pick-up form the distance of about 1 inch. It will bounce around in the wind but don't blow to hard. Give it a gentle blast and then try the player. If it doesn't work then try again this time but blow harder.
Then it is time to replace this player the Laser reader is defective or the disk doesn't spin due to a defective drive motor, in most cases they don't even sell parts for these players and they are not repaired unless under warranty.
It is likely worn drive belts. There are 2 within this hi-fi. I replaced my belts with elastic bands. No issues so far.
1) Remove power and unplug unit
2) Remove 4 x lid screws and lid
3) Remove both side panels.
4) Remove silver plate from shielding cd drive
5) Replace belts with 25mm diameter bands
6) Reverse the strip down.
New belts are $6 each on e-bay
"Even if you have trouble changing a light bulb and do not know which end of a soldering iron is the one to avoid, reading through this document will enable you to be more knowledgeable about your CD player. Then, if you decide to have it professionally repaired, you will have a better chance of recognizing incompetence or down right dishonesty when dealing with the service technician. For example, a bad laser is not the most likely cause of a player that fails to play discs - it is actually fairly far down on the list of typical faults. A dirty lens is most likely. There - you learned something already! "
Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.
Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.
