    Thanks. Obviously, when I buy a pre-recorded cd I can't select the brand of audio disc.

It may need a better cleaning by a professional as well as some lubrication at points in the unit. This is a job for a Technician.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

SOURCE: Recorded finalized CD's will not play on standard CD player

Are you using the same brand of discs you used to? Do they palyback on the machine in both the record and the playback deck? Do your old cdr's you recorded still play in the standard cd player? You can try the diagnostics - hold down the 'play' and 'fwd' keys on the record side as you power it on.

SOURCE: When I insert a CD-R

The message NO DISC may appear for several reasons:
1.No disc is loaded->Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY
2.The disc may be defective->Try a different disc
3.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
4.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
5.If the player cannot read CDs/DVDs correctly, try using a commonly available cleaning CD/DVD to clean the lens before taking the device to service. Other cleaning methods may destroy the lens.
6.Using non supported discs may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot loader or drive.

Thanks everyone. I should clarify that the cds that will not play in the right hand tray (originals) are as pre-recorded by a record company; for example, an ABBA cd which I used to be able to play, I...


What does the lower surface look like? Does it have a lot of scratches or is it perfect? Many times the condition of the optical surface of the disc can affect the results you have. The disc is scratched can be polished. Burned disc only have about 70% of the output that a pressed disc has so sometimes you need to burn a new one.

Does not read Cds or DVDs


most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

My dvd player plays cds but wont play dvds says disc error or unknown disc


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD's.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all DVD's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Denon DCM 390 not longer reads discs--HELP!


Hi there, this lens may be dirty or it may have a thin layer of heat film that is causing it to not read in a consistent manner. i would try to clean the lens with a good CD lens cleaner. if the cleansing doesn't restore the lens to its original reading state, this will confirm lens assembly failure and you will need to replace this assembly.
