Question about Sony CDP-CX300 CD Player
Unit worked fine for 5 years then stopped reading disc..all mechanical functions are ok I suspect dirt on laser but unable to remove chassis top cover to blow air on the laser reading assembly
Probably have to get the laser replaced as long as all the mechanics are working to load the disc.

Try running a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru it, preferrably one that uses fluid. You can purchase one at just about any retail store for 15-20. Good to have and great preventative maintanance. If that does not work, you need a new transport, they do not repair or align lasers. Too expensive. The replacement is 100-150 with labor and a new one is under 200. My suggestion would be if the cleaner does not work replace it and keep the new one clean. CD/DVD/PC etc. all can and should be cleaned 3 or 4 times a year. Best preventative maintanance you can do. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a 5 disc
It needs a new laser,also called an optical eye.Since you cleaned it and that did not help,definitely.If the optical eye is bad,no disc will read and it will do just as you described,search and search all day.Probably close to $100 minimum to send it somewhere and have it fixed.When I was doing repair about 12 years ago,the eye alone was about $60.The shop normally has a parts price markup of 20%,then S&H and labor.I looked for a more accurate price on a few sites but couldn't find one.Optical eyes are somewhat universal though so they should be able to do something somewhere.Here is Sony.Good luck,Greg
