Recently my CDP-XE270 has refused to recognise any discs in it. No matter what disc is placed into it, you can hear the machine spin for a very short time then give you the "no disc" sign. It will not play anything, including the lens cleaner disc, and the only two buttons that seem to work are the eject and power ones.
Does anyone have any ideas what's wrong with it? It's only two and a half years old, so I don't imagine it's ready for the bin yet.

Anything that creates finalized standard audio cd's will do (filenames= xxx.cda). On a PC that would usually mean copying the files from original CD's rather than 'ripping them, then 'burning' the project to a disc.
If the disc is actually loading but won't read, try cleaning the laser lens with a cotton swab. Unplug the unit and remove the cover to access the laser. Spray a small amount of glass cleaner on the swab and gently wipe the lens of the laser assembly. Use the other end to dry it and remove excess dust. The only way you can tell if the disc is loading is to remove the top cover and observe if the disc at least loads and spins. If it does, try that procedure.
If the disc doesn't come up to the loaded position and spin (spin the disc by hand to confirm this), your gears may be out of alignment. Take the disc out, and use a screwdriver to manually turn the gear from the bottom of the unit. The gear should be visible through a small hole in the bottom toward the front of the unit. Take a slotted screwdriver and turn it until you see the laser assembly come up to the clamp that holds the disc in place. You may have to force it slightly if the gear has skipped a notch, it might "pop" as it goes past the tooth. Make sure you are turning it in the same direction as it moves when loading a disc! Once you do that, the laser should come up completely and be able to clamp the disc and read it.
