SOURCE: No Disc error, won't read any CD

Another option is to try a lense cleaner CD, or doing it manually.

To get the cds to play, and 5 to eject, you can try taking off the sides of the consul and using compressed air. As for the shelf problem, I'm not really sure.

Hello cclub2002,

First try to turn it off and then on.
If that doasent work, turn it off for 10 mins and then turn it back on.

If the error continues, let me know.
By the way, to try to get your CD out, search for a hole (2 mms in diameter) It should be near the CD tray, but could be anywhere.
Once you locate the small hole, find a paper clip or smomething as pointy as it, and insert the paper clip in.
Press it had and the CD tray will come out.

Good luck and anything else you need let us know,
Dahaka

Probably means there is something wrong with the DVD drive. Check that a disc is not inserted wrong. You could also try cleaning the DVD lens.

JVC CA-D661T compact home stereo stopped playing burned CDs (it used to play these same CDs, now it doesn't recognize them). Everything else works, including playing of original CDs. Any ideas?


You can try cleaning the laser lens. You can do this using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Be sure you are very gentle though or you could risk scratching the lens which would completely ruin the laser assembly.

My MHC-GX450 worked fine for several years. I just went on vacation for two weeks and before I left, I unplugged it so lightning would not cause power surge damage. When I came home and powered up, it...


After calling SONY support, they wanted me to send the entire system - speakers, cables... Please! That's is dumb, and the rep had to be reading it from a script.

So I managed to get the covers off and figured it out on my own. The drive belt for the CD tray had come off the pulleys. I simply put it back on and... Voila! Saved myself hundreds of dollars for a $2 belt. I called SONY and ordered two spares. Sometimes, if you have some mechanical and basic electrical skills you can save yourself a lot of money and aggravation.

In some cases this is due to the main spindle getting jammed or there are mechanical errors which as mentioned needs a reset.

Also in some 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.
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

I had the same problem. My unit would not eject CDs. I was able to fix it by hitting the reset button. That restarted the whole unit and reset all the settings as well, but now I'm not having any issues with ejecting CDs.
