Re: doesn't recornize Cd's and won't play cds

I have a AWM-2700U (3 disc changer) that was doing the same thing. I removed the cover and found that the laser lens for the CD player had come out of it "slot". I cleaned it with alcohol and a cotton swab and replaced it in the slot and it has worked for the past 3 months since. Hope it works for you.

I have an old Aiwa stereo with a 5-CD changer. The remote control has RC-7AS05 on it. How can I program the CD player to play the CDs continuously?

Press the RANDOM/REPEAT button and watch the unit's display. There will be a graphic changing to show the different functions: Disc repeat....All Repeat.

Try out the different modes unit you find the one that plays all the discs in the carousel.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

Cd tray wont close, cds wont play

Sounds like you probably have a stretched belt on the load motor. Unplug the unit and remove the case which will expose the load motor. Plug in and turn on and press tray in button. You should hear the motor run and if you can see the belt you should see it slipping. Some belts are easy to change, and some are next to impossible. If you have to disassemble anything be sure that you note the position of everything as the timing of the tray, door, laser and most items in the unit is very critical. Let me know if you need more help.


Thanks for using FixYa

The cd door is stuck as if a cd is out of place. Won't open enough to see the problem.

Before, when trying to see the problem, I clicked "skip" to see if it would go through all the discs. It did, but still wouldn't open the door. Later, I clicked "play" each time, then "skip", and after going through all 5 discs, the door opened. Go figure.
