Question about Sylvania SCR4966 Clock Radio

CD won't play

The CD is supposed to "spin up" and stop at one before being played, but I often have to switch it on and off several times before the number 1 pops up. We have two of these, and they're both doing it a lot. We've tried blowing them out with canned air. HELP!

My cd part of aiwacd3 wont play any longer. i looked through the top window and it appears that the disk does not fit centrally under the playing head sometim and then the head spins a few revolutions,...


hi there.
Although CDs are still the preferred method of audio distribution, CD players are quickly being phased out in lieu of MP3 players. If your old CD player stops working, it might be a little panic-inducing, but fear not. If the CD player turns on but does not play CDs, then the problem is not with the power cord or the circuity (which are generally more expensive to repair rather than fix) but with the lens. There are several troubleshooting steps that you can take to fix a CD player when it won't play.
Step 1 Remove excess dust from the CD player. Dust is the number one enemy of electronics, and it can corrode even the most resilient device. Make sure to dust in between buttons, knobs, power cord(s) and audio-out ports. Note: use a dry duster, as moisture will harm your CD player further.
Step 2 Use a disk-based lens cleaner to remove ground in dust or dirt from the CD player's lens. These lens cleaners look like a regular CDs, but have specially-made bushes on the reverse side that gently remove excess dirt from the CD-reading lens. Simply put the CD in your player, and press the "Play" button to clean the lens. Do not run the cleaner more than once, as excess brushing can cause scratches on the lens.
Step 3 Polish the lens. Use a glass or eyeglass cleaning solution and a lint-free cloth to gently polish the reading lens. Clean it by using a low amount of pressure and softly polishing the lens and its surrounding area using soft, circular motions. Do this for about a minute or two and then allow the player to sit for a few minutes before trying to play a CD.

Cd player won't work on my CFD-560


Hello
Insert a lens cleaning disc into the system, and play it at least three times, by eject it out and reinsert in each time. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your Cd player should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

My Wurlitzer 1015 100 cd jukebox wont play cd's


Hi,

The problem may be in the power supply, it could be dry (cold joints in the USA) joints that are giving you problems. If you have the manual try checking the voltages at the power supply before and after you get the problem. It could be that once the jukebox is aired that the problem starts.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.
