Music CDs skipping while playing

My music cds are skipping on all of the 5 cd decks. I have used the Maxell cd head cleaner product to clean the head as recommended on the cleaner product. The cleaner product is a cd which has brushes on the play side. But its use does not show any effect on this system. I am doomed right now as to what to do with this music system; rest of the features on this work just fine. Any help would be appreciated. Do I need to open it from the back and clean the laser head?

My cd player skips

there are a few options
maybe your cd player is on an unstable surface and so the cd skips from vibrations or movements so you will need to put it on a stable surface free from movement or rumbles so that the cd player can read the cds without any interference.
Also maybe your lens is dirty or your cds are dirty or scratched, in which case her's what you can try:

1) buy a cd lens cleaning kit from a music shop or electronics store and clean the lens
2) but if the cd player is quite old then there may be a build up of dust and dirt inside so you will need to get it cleaned professionally

If the cds are dirty then clean using a soft cloth from the inside to the outside edge in a straight line

if the cds are scratched then buy new cds and treat them with respect. Make sure you don't put grubby fingers on the surface and try to handle them by just putting your finger through the middle hole and the outside edge with clean hands. and remember to put them back in the case and not leave them on the side or on the floor or stacked in piles

good luck

I bought a Radio Shack cd cleaner (cd w/little brush on it) to clean the lens of the cd player however the machine won't recognize the disc when inserted so I cannot figure out how to "play" it. Many of...

yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps

Yamaha CDC-765: sometimes skips when playing CDs

The problem is in the laser for sure. Try cleaning with a cd cleaning tool. It's the easiest solution because changing the laser is not always available solution.

The first thing to try is use a CD lens cleaning disc. The disc has a fine brush that will sweep contaminants away from the lens on the optical pickup in the drive. Also, depending on the design of your system, you may be able to use a clean and dry q-tip or a can of air duster to clean the pickup. Dust contamination is the most likely suspect for your problem and cleaning the drive is the first step you should take before going further. Best of luck!

Cd player is skippping - I have cleaned the cds. still skipping. It is a bose wave radio single cd player.

Hello my friend,
I suggest to test with many different CDs, if it's still skipping in all CDs. i will say that it's a lens issue, in this case you buy some CD cleaner which has some special lotion which clean the lens. but if this doesn't help also, at this time i will say that the lens needs to be replaced and i hope that you device is still under warranty because the repair will be free for you.
Best Regards,

Try a disk lowering your write speed, for when you burn. If your speed rating on your disks is 40x then try burniong at 1/2 the speed, I generally have a rule to only burn at half the maximum speed.

Hope this helps
