CD changer...doesn't play...says ''no disk''

We have a beloved 3 disk CD/Cassette/am/fm unit. Recently the CD changer stopped working...it says no disk when disks are in the player. I can see that the unit does lift the CD up off of the turntable, starts to spin...then stops. I cannot see any visible red glow from the laser...(don't know if I should see that on that model anyhow)

It is a Magnavox...Model # FW322C137P

Could it be something as simple as dust obscuring a sensor... Thanks for your help...gw

Yes Dust can cause the problem.
If you want to try cleaning the laser optics:
1. Unplug the unit and remove the cover.
2. Locate the Cd mechanism and you should see the tray where you would normally insert the disc. Look for a glass lens about 1/4 inch in diameter ( usually a blueish tint)
3. With a cotton swab dipped in a little isopropyl alcohol (any pharmacist should have it and it is very inexpensive ) Clean the lens. You do not need a lot of alcohol and any excess will quickly evaporate.
4. Put the cover back on and give it a try

I have a memorex stereo, turntable, 3 cd changer etc. The standby light comes on but no sound, it is only 2 yrs old..


Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.

Fisher 143a CD Changer


HI...
You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it.
As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.

Kenwood XD 550 stereo start-up problem


this normally happens with a lot of sets! It usually happens during a Power Failure, Power Surge (Fluctuation) and if the wire of the component is taken out from the wall outlet while the system is on...To get rid of this problem all you need to do is to press the Display button on the main unit, it is located just below the main display! Voltage Selection has got nothing to do with this problem...

How can I connect it to the "Front Games and mp3 Inputs


Leah, if you go to wal-mart, you can buy an adapter cord that will plug into the headphone jack of your mp3 player and then plug into your stereo to play your mp3's through it. It looks like a headphone jack on both ends. Cost is approx 3-5 dollars.
