CD player won't play or recognize when a cd is inserted

I have a mini-component system, cd-c472, that won't recognize or play cd's. I think I may have confused the player's computer system by trying to play an mp3 disc a few years ago. It made the whole system act strangely, and eventually stopped playing cd's. The carousel rotates through all three locations when I insert a cd, and then the cd player displays "NO DISC" Is there some way to reprogram the cd player? Thank you
Jeffrey

I did solve the problem; instead of spending time online looking for a user's book, I tore my house apart and found the original one. Thank you for your response.

To set the clock for the Sharp CD-C472:

1. Power switch off
2. Press CLOCK button.
3. Within 3 seconds, press MEMORY/SET button.
4. Press TUNING/TIME to select time mode (12 or 24 hour)
5. Press MEMORY/SET button.
6. Press TUNING/TIME to select hour.
7. Press MEMORY/SET button.
8. Press TUNING/TIME to adjust minutes.
9. Press MEMORY/SET button.


Please note, your "solution is valid for" choice forced the Sharp CD-C401 selection BUT THAT IS NOT ACCURATE THIS SOLUTION IS SPECIFIC TO THE CD-C472.

SOURCE: "NO DISC" reading

Try this CD realignment process built into the Sharp XL HP505: Have unit off.
Hol down the square (stop) button and the X-BASS button while pressing the ON button. This starts the CD TEST. press play, the memory, then memory, memory, memory, adjustment lights will come on the screen. FOF, TOF, TBAL, TGAN, FGAN, RFLS. press cd1 - track 4, press cd2 - track 9, press cd3 - track 15. Press square (Stop).

If all the cd trays are full, then will light up . This worked for me.

This is a relatively common problem when the optics get dirty. If you can reach the lens, try cleaning it using a cotton swab and alcohol. Don't bother with the "cleaning discs" available as all they can do is bruch off the dust. These lenses sometimes get a smoke or dirt film on them that the brushes can not celan.

Keep us posted.

Cds won't play


OK, your discription of your problem is rather vague.

Do they try to play but skip or make god awful noises? Or do you have no audio at all?

If they are skipping check to make sure there are no smudges on the underside of the CD. If so clean them with a soft cloth,

Sometimes severe scratches can cas the same problem. You can buff out some scratched using tooth paste or you can by a scratch remover that they sell in stores (it is a gadget that will clean and buff out some scratches available in many stores).

If you have any of the label missing then this is a worse issue. It is actually the top of a CD that you need to be most careful about scratching because if you remove the laquer that protects the silver layer of the CD it will remove part of the silver with it along with any audio or data that is on it. There is no repair for this.

If you have ruled out a damaged or dirty CD then be sure you are not trying to play a CD that has data files intended for computers on a player that cannot open them. The best way to do this is to check the CD on a computer and open the drive folder and view the contents of the disk. Files such as MP3, WAV, WMA and others will not play on a standard CD player. If the files are CDA that is a standard audio CD formatting. So next see if the disk plays on the computer.

If the CD plays on a computer then return to the CD player and attemp playing again. Make sure that the player recognizes the CD being in the tray. Also, verify, if you can that the CD is spinning within the player when you play. If the CD is not spinning or the player does not recognize rge disk try a disk you know to be undamaged.

If you still have problems then you will have to have your player repaired or replace it.

When I try to listen to the cd's, it won't play them. It tries to acknowledge them but the player won't play them


CD players commonly will not recognize some types of CD, eg MP3 recordings, or maybe CD-RW recordings.

However if this is happening with CDs that would previously play OK, then it could be

- scratched or dirty CD surface
- contaminated laser lens in the player
- laser lens has become misaligned

The last 2 need a service technician, but it may be cheaper to buy a new player.

CD player will not recognise or play disc


Hi,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it not recognize or play disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Magnavox AZ9855 mini system (7 CD changer), trying to play a cd, the system ejects the CD and message Failed CD is shown. No CD will play.


Hi,when a system eject a CD and with a message "failed CD" It caused by the CD mechanisms that allows the CD to play to damaged that's why the CD keeps on rejecting the CD's being inserted into the CD player.

When you replace the CD mechanism that allow CD to play, problem solved.

Take care.
