Can't play the cd

After putting in the CD, move the switch on the back to the CD/Line In position. (The other switch positions are Off, AM, FM.) The switch is next to the Line In (3.5 mm) jack. Then press Play/Pause on the front of the boombox. This is the single button on the left side (The adjacent pair of buttons are the search (reverse/forward tracks). On the other side of the LCD display are the Stop, Repeat and Program buttons.

Play button on tape player does not stay on.

This is a mechanical problem, the sliding plate moves when play button is engaged and locks button in play mode. There any number of reasons, weak spring, dirt, or broken part. It will require total dis-assembly to access the area.

I have memorex radio/cd/cassette player model MP3226. The PLAY button on the cassette tape does not stay in the down position when pressed when a tape is in the housing. If I remove the tape, and press...

I can imagine 2 cases for your problem:
Either there is a mechanical problem and something is not allowing the "play mechanism" to go all the way up to the clip position when the cassette is in the housing,
Or the tape isn't rolling up properly. Some of these deck's have some kind of protection and when the tape isn't rolling properly a system stops the play procedure. Check if both of the rollers for the tape are spinning around properly. In case of not spinning, run the cassette fast speed forward and backward in order to come to the proper state. Also check without any cassette is any roller spinning around or not?

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

The tape will not move or play at all. The CD and


It sounds like the drive belt for the player has either worn out, or has become broken.

The only way to find that out for sure is to take the player apart.

If the belt is worn out, it will be loose fitting, and obviously, if it is broken, it will just be laying there.

To take the player apart, turn the boombox around so that you are looking at the back.

There will be screws in the corners of the boombox, you will need to remove ALL of them in order to open the casing.

There may also be a screw or two inside the battery cmpartment, those will need to be removed as well, if there are any.

After removing the screws, the case should slide apart, but there may be retaining tabs that hold the boombox together as well.

The belt will be located at the front bottom of the boombox.

Once you get it apart, you should see it pretty easily.

Replacing it is pretty simple, you just remove the old one, and put the new one back over the capstan rollers and drive gear.

You will see how it goes on when you take the old one off.

Once you get it on, put the screws back into the case in the same order that you took them out.

This should get your tape player back up and going again.

Oh, you can go and use a rubber band if you don't have a replacement drive belt for it, just get a rubber band that fits good and tight when you put it on.

I hope this works out for you, good luck, and have a good day !

We have a panasonic rx d15, not used it for a while. Put a cd in, but shows as no cd.... won't play. Any ideas please. Have tried different cds, but still show as no cd.

If it has been a while the laser lens is probably dirty and needs cleaning, you can buy a disc cleaning kit and load it in the machine. The other option is to dis-assemble the unit and use a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol being careful to clean it gently. If this fails a new assembly will be needed but this would not be cost effective.
