SOURCE: MY CD PALYER DOES NOT WORK. ''DISC NOT FINALIZED'' IS DISPLAYED.

If your CD player has been working for many hours and cleaning the lens didn't help, then the next thing to do is changing the spindle motor (the one that spins the disc), since the brushes and the commutator get dirty/oxydized with many hours of performance.

The motor can also be cleaned, but it's kinda complicated and delicate to do it, so you might want to change it instead.

The same holds for the slide motor (the motor that changes the position of the laser pickup).

To clean the motor you need to desolder/remove it and open it up (you need to bend out the clamped parts on the motor housing to release the cover - also, mark the position of the cover so you can put it back in place in the same position as it was prior to opening it - some motors have an indentation so that the cover fits in place in only one position).

Then you need to remove the cover (this is a delicate procedure as you can easily damage the brushes).

You can clean the brushes and the commutator using a long pointed scalpel - gently scrub away the brownish/black residues on both the brushes and the commutator.

Now you need to put the motor back together, taking care not to damage the brushes when you put the cover back in place (kinda tricky but it can be done).

After closing it, see if it runs smoothly, you may want to try and run it on some 3 volts - it must run quite silently, with no more than a gentle humming sound.

If it runs ok, you should use a tiny flat screwdriver and a small hammer to bend the housing edge back onto the cover to fix it in place (basically, you need to rehammer back in the clamps that held the cover in place, this is also a bit tricky and delicate thing to do).

Now reinstall/resolder the motor back in place (motors on some brands/models can be worked without removing them).

Well, i've just told you how i repaired quite some CD drives which were virtually dead, i'm actually still using a yamaha which is more than 15 years old (i myself have been using it for at least 10 years now), i got it as a scrap piece, it returned to life after the above described procedure and it actually works perfectly up to date.

Anyway, i guess the easy way is to simply replace the motors (they need to have the same axis dimensions and mount holes as the original ones, also they need to run on the same voltage - things to keep in mind when you are looking for new motors).

Hope you can get it working...

good luck

SOURCE: it is not reading the blank disks anymore

Sounds like that may be the case. You can buy one of those cd cleaning discs and try using that. or if you want to spend the time dis-assembling the recorder and use some rubbing alchohol and a q-tip to clean the laser lens. Otherwise not worth the cost to repair.

Do I need a dvd cleaner and what kind


Hello
DVD cleaner is a kind of CD, which will have cleaning pads sticked on it. When we insert the disc in any disc player, this cleaning pad will come in contact with the lens of the reading head. As the cleaning CD spins at hing speed inside the disc player, it will wipe out all the dirt and dust, if accumulated on the lens. Thus cleaning of laser pickup lens occurs.
This cleaning disc can be boutght from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. Even after using this disc, your DVD player does not reads any disc, its laser pickup assembly is faulty, and should be replaced. OK.

My cd recorder wont read blank cds help me please


Do as it asks, insert blank CD-Audio or CD-Music media.

Discs for recording
For recording, make sure to use special audio discs only.
These discs are marked with “Digital Audio” and the logos shown below.
There are two different types of audio discs for the use on this CD recorder:
– CD-Audio Recordable (CDR) discs
These discs can be recorded on once and
play in all standard CD players and CD
recorders, when they are finalized.
– CD-Audio ReWritable (CDRW) discs
These discs can be recorded on, erased and
re-recorded many times and play in CDRW
compatible CD players and CD recorders,
when they are finalized.
– All Philips CD players and CD recorders
with the sticker shown here are CDRW
compatible.
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of Philips audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only.
Note: Do not use a computer CDR or CDRW as recording will not work!

Go here and download the manual. You'll need it.

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.

Phillips pet 706/05 dvd player wont dvd-r-rw


  • Disc not loaded. Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY.
  • The disc used may be defective. The disc used may be defective, try another disc.
  • The disc is placed improperly in the tray. Make sure the disc is properly placed and centered in the tray and if the disc has a label on one side, make sure the label is facing up.
  • The disc is dirty. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc by wiping in a straight line from the center of the disc to the outside edge.
  • Use of DualDisc or Flip Disc which does not meet the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. Some music labels have recently introduced the DualDisc for pre-recorded audio and video content. The DualDisc bonds DVD content on one side 'back-to-back' with digital audio content on the other side. However, the digital audio side does not meet the technical specifications specified in the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. For this Reason, DualDisc is not permitted to carry the CD logo. Philips DVD and CD players and disc drives fully comply with the CD specifications and therefore may not recognize the DualDisc. Attempting to use DualDisc may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot loader or drive.
    The DVD video content on the DVD side of the DualDisc should play on Philips DVD players and DVD drives. However, Philips DVD players and drives do not support DVD Audio, and will not play any DVD Audio content present on the DVD side of a DualDisc. Philips will further investigate DualDisc and update this notice accordingly.

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

It might be an older CD player that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability... If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.
