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 9200M am/fm stereo ,double cassette turntable and 3 cd changer and it will no turn on, I've only used it 8 or 9 times. How or can I fix it ?


If you bought this new, I strongly suggest taking it back. There are no servicable parts inside and taking it apart will void warranty

Err message on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 10 CD changer


I had a similar problem which responded to the use of a CD cleaner disc to clean the laser lens reading the CD. The "err" messages stopped and the changer started to work as it had before. Perhaps this will correct your problem too.
