The cd player on my new onkyo cs-445 cd receiver is not reading or playing any audio cd's...needs help

Just got a new Onkyo cs-445 cd receiver for Christmas as a gift and after setting up, everything worked (radio and iPod dock) but the cd player is not recognizing, reading or playing any audio cd's (new originals or copied cd's). Can anyone advise on how to get the cd player working. I cannot return the product due to high shipping cost and do not have purchase receipt.

Player can be made to work without remote. But it is a pain.
You need to press pause then play in the right combination.and you can get both DVDs and Blu Ray disks to work. I bought a store floor model that did not have a remote. I went through the same problem when I would lose the remote for the HD-DVD player. My four year old daughter knows this trick pause pause play for DVDs and pause play pause play for blu

Cannot play 3D discs through my new Onkyo TXNR818 amp.

The unit is 3D ready so it should play them. You have probably got the wrong settings applied now. The manual is long and complicated. So you need to read it carefully and check the settings.

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?

How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

New Onkyo cd player random

You imply that this is a new unit. If so, it should still be under warranty. This sounds like there is a logic problem. Return this for warranty exchange or repair.
Keep us posted.

New receiver....old CD, record and tape players

Most new recievers don't have a "phono" input. If your record player is an older kind without a built in preamp, you will need to purchase a Phono pre-amp (about $25) and then you can use any input you wish.
