Sony mch nxi.was playing perfect then just stopped working wont register cds coming up saying no cds .when cds are in it wants to play but wont register cds.

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Cd system does not recognise the cds on playing deck.

The unit is a 3 disc changer usually when these kind of problems occur there are quite a number of possible solutions.
When i faced such a problem it was due to the current being low. Then it was 200 volts instead of 220 so check yours and determine if the current is adequate otherwise you can get a voltage regulator.
On the other hand this happens when the lens is dirty or the CD is not properly placed but the second option is usually an off case.
Generally to solve the problem take out the unit from the mains for about 20 mins.
If you have the technical know how you can open the unit and try to clean around the CD tray. This should be done with utmost care as damageable components are around the tray(this is not compulsory if you cant).
After about 20 mins pug the unit back
Next get a CD lens cleaner and run it in the system to clean the lens of the unit.
put in a single disc and attempt to play. At this point the unit should function fine.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Your CD player is failed. It will need to be replaced. Some folks can repair but it cost less to have it replaced. If no one local will do it BOSE will for about $150.

CD player fails to read CDs

Cd cleaning disc is not advisable to clean your laser lens.. all you have to do is manually cleaning method! open the unit go to laser lens and clean it with 100% cotton buds then rub it slightly clockwise, but careful this is sensitive parts.

CD's Stuck

New CDs may have some rough spots around the inner and outer edges. If such a CD is used, this unit may reject the CD. To remove these rough spots, rub the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.
