Question about Sharp CD-XP5500 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs

The CD player has been playing CD-RW disc's fine up until today when I put in a disc that had previously worked, but when it tried to load the tracks, it came back with No Disc on the display. Normal CD's seem to play fine, although occasionally it does sound like it's even struggling to read these. I've had the system for just over three years but rarely used it so I can't imagine that the laser has gone already. Can you offer any advice? I have a Sharp 350W book shelf system, and I guess it's about 4-5 years old. I clean the laser often, now it will not recognize CD-RW discs I've been playing on it for quite some time. It plays CD-R discs just fine. I'm just wondering, if CD-RW discs become unreadable after a few rewrites?

Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.

Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

Cd inserted in cd player no disc


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weak until it will no longer read the disc, it is far cheaper to replace the stereo than have the old unit repaired.

CD player will not read disks


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over time the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, the whole assembly must be replaced since individual parts are not an option, but first! buy a CD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, sometimes this will give more life to the player.

CD playing erratic


Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.

Fw316C cd player will not read discs


Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one

MY CD PLAYER SAYS "NO DISC "


Try a CD drive cleaner- this is a disc with a little brush and some cleaning fluid. Other than that it will be time for the next one - this is a no repair situation here I am afraid
