Question about Insignia 5-Disc CD Changer with MP3 and WMA Playback

Won't read discs

Bought this a week ago; yes it was from a shop on ebay for only $30. It played fine for a day or two, then it started only playing a disc after 5 minutes of shuffling through, now it won't read at all. Would love to have an answer.

    I have the same exact problem. I recieved mine 4 months ago and now it won't read any discs (including the cleaning disc) I think the only solution is to throw it away and buy a Panasonic!

It is likely that the laser head is very dirty, you could try a cleaning disc to see if that helps the situation at all.

Tray #1 won't read cd most of the time


Hello
Insert a lens cleanig disc into the device and play it at least three times. If the fault is due to any dirt or dust accumulated on lasser pickup lens, thei will rectify the problem. If this does not help you, the laser pickup lens unit of your device should be replaced with same type and number. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town, and won't cost more. OK.

Hi. I recently bought a Sony CDP-CX355. Until a few days ago it was working fine. Suddenly, the player stopped reading the discs. It grabs a disc as if its going to play it, but just reads it, and then...


This happens when your laser is not able to read the data of the disc. Either u are using disc which the player cannot read or the disc is not readable. If your CD player is not reading the discs which it used to read earlier then CD player laser head has to be replaced.

Put in clean commercial disc and get error msg "no disc" period!


Dr. OM,

Lets give it a try. The purchasedate will be 1991 (HI).
I'll suppose you allready cleaned the laserunit.
You can try to clean the laserslides, sometimes they are sticky and dry. Then the laser is not fast and precise enough to read the index of your CD.
Clean them with some alcohol on cottontips.
When they are really clean, use just a little teflonoil to make sure the laserunit slides very smoothly.

Regards,
73's Gerard

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is


At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.

Denon DCM 390 not longer reads discs--HELP!


Hi there, this lens may be dirty or it may have a thin layer of heat film that is causing it to not read in a consistent manner. i would try to clean the lens with a good CD lens cleaner. if the cleansing doesn't restore the lens to its original reading state, this will confirm lens assembly failure and you will need to replace this assembly.

Yes it should play all cd's - the laser is either dirty or needs replacing assuming it can spin discs ok.

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.
