CD player doesn't work on Timex Indiglo Radio Sounds CD player. No manual available. Can't use.


I never have seen this model but guess it's similar to any other CD-Radio model. You can download a manual from here

https://timexaudio.com/media/uploads/product/files/T618_IB59176_84.pdf

It should have a switch to select CD player.
Once you select CD player, open CD lid, insert a CD and play
If won't play, CD player is defective and if you don't know how to repair it you should take it to a repair service and evaluate if it's worth to reapir.

My bose CD player is not working my cd are stuck I don,t why


Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
PART I
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
PART II
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

After a few months, the CD player stopped working. It doesn't spin, and it shows "no" in the clock display


Each CD Player has a potentiometer to adjust the laser assembly alignment. The T609t CD player has a tiny pot of 2000 Ohms (2K) about 1/8 x 1/8 of an inch on a tiny printed circuit board right under the laser assembly. I tried adjusting its value with no success. The wiper was not making contact with the carbon layer below it. I removed it and soldered in 2 wires of 6 inches to work out of the box. I attached at the end of the 2 wires a small printed circuit board of 1/2 x1/2 inch to solder a new pot of 1000 Ohms in series with 50 Ohms resistor. I started increasing the pot value until about 700 Ohms and immediately the Player showed 01 on the display and started to play IL DIVO songs. Obviously after each new setting of the pot I had to repeat the same routine: Power off, power on, hit Play, see No CD message on the display until I found the right initial value on the pot. I still had to tweek it up toward 750 Ohms because it was skipping a bit of song number 8. It is working fine now.
I taped my mod, tucked it in the box and closed the whole thing until the next time it will go out of alignment.
The pot I am using is bigger (3/8x3/8x1/4) it takes 44 turns of 180 deg to sweep it from 0 to 1000 Ohms. The old pot is swept from 0 to 2000 Ohms in one turn of 120 deg. The 50 Ohms resistor was for safety in case I hit 0 Ohms on the pot. I kept it in the mod in case I want to hook a scope.
Cheers
Peter

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

I cannot insert a CD into the CD slot.


I really like these radios, by the way, and have 1 of the radios w/out CD, 2 with the CD and one of the HD radio's. I'm one of those people that needs multiple alarms to get up so I set several of them to turn on at different times in the morning and it works great!
I have had this problem twice and I've unplugged the unit then after I plug it back in I hold down the CD eject button while I turn it back on. The display then says something like "CD Reset" and it resets the CD mechanism to the beginning of the cycle. This moves the CD holder to the correct position. (I assume the problem is due to the CD positioning device stopping in the wrong place after it ejects a CD, for whatever reason)
I hope this helps. Mine did the same thing with no CD inside.
I listen to the radio a lot, and by having these in several rooms, I can listen to radio without having to have it turned up super loud when I am walking around the house. I also use this at the High School where I am a science teacher. It produces enough quality audio to fill the classrooms with music or playing podcasts of "Science Friday."

CD multichanger not playing or working.


I havena't done anything much except to take all the cd's out and have put in the 1st which always worked fine. Then I put in a 2nd and at first it did not want to work. It sounded like a cell phone breaking up. I turned it off completely. And this a.m. both are doing fine. I will try the 3rd and 4th a little later today and hopefully they will work.

Complicated GE clock radio/CD player


To set the time:
Hit the SET Wake/Time Button closest to the CD player until the clock face appears in the bottom left hand of the display.

Use the TRACK Rev Search Fwd Arrows to adjust the time.
Rev will decrease by minutes and Fwd will increase by minutes.

Hope this helps.
