TEAC CD-P1260 Brand-new, out of the box. Placed multiple factory and home finalized CDs (label side up). Get "Reading" for an inordinate amount of time -- then "No Disc." What's up with that?

Re: TEAC CD-P1260

Identical problem with my 4-month old player. I mailed the unit to the repair shop noted on their web page (Montebello, CA). They "re-soldered a loose connection" and made a "mechanical adjustment". I got the player back in two days. It now works fine (again). Under warrenty; no charge.

My teac recorder model # cd-rw890 keeps flashing "reading" and will not let me operate the cd drive

How long have you had you CD recorder?
How many CDs have you burned on it?
The reason for asking is, it sounds like the laser has
failed or is failing to the point of not recognizing the
presence of a disc in the tray. Does it do this with any
disc you put in the tray. Blanks & pre recorded CDs?
A minimum amount of light must bounce back from the
surface of the disc or the unit thinks the tray is empty.
If the laser has become very weak (or died) the player
doen't know any better and thinks "no disc".
The "reading" message just indicates it hasn't passed
the stage where it has detected a disc, yet.
The first step is to run a laser cleaning disc in the player
on the off-chance the lens is dusty and that's the problem.
If you don't have one (you should) they're cheap enough
and available everywhere. If cleaning doesn't help, you
will be looking for a new laser assembly for your unit.
Be careful how much you pay for one. New 890s can be
had from Full Compass for under $200.00 and would be
a smarter move than repairing a tired one!

I have a denon DCD-625 and it has suddenly stopped reading some CD's. Even a new box set I got for Xmas - reads 1st one but not other two.

Maybe it is dirty. try a cd lens cleaner. you can get them from local electronic stores. and if that's the problem then keep your cds clean. put them back in their case and only handle them by putting your finger through the hole and gently supporting the outside edge. never touch the face (other side to label) and if you do get dirt or bogies on em then clean from the center outwards in straight line. Good luck!

Cd player stops spinning about 30 seconds after it starts. I opened the case and watched. It starts playing ok and then slows down and eventually stops.

Is it belt driven? My guess is that the belt needs to be replaced. If it's direct drive, it's probably the motor itself. Make sure you try some different CDs. Sometimes when there are scratches or smudges, the laser can't read the disk and it will stop. You may want to try a laser cleaning disk too. They are cheap and I have saved several computer drives by using one.

Often times(more often than we'd wish) your brand of television, vcr etc. is not on the list. They all offer a code search sequence which is gruleing to say the least. Some times you may contact the company and they will give you the right code.Thanks, Dana

TEAC H300CD Player

Hi, Your particular brand/model was made in the very early 2000. It is possible that the eye (optical lens) is already weak and would need replacement or calibration. You may want to try and clean the lens hopefully improving the reading capability. Some users of CD players use a PC CD cleaner to clean the eye (pls read the instructions) though this can be done by going inside the unit). Probably your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help and give you ideas. Pls post again how things turn up and/or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
