I would suggest trying some sort of laser cleaning device. You can pick one up at Target or Wal*Mart. How it works is there are a few small brushes on what looks like a normal CD. When you insert this into your CD player, the brushes run over the laser head and remove dust and other particles from it. This can help when discs are unreadable, or if there is static while trying to play a disc. Hope this helps!

Still works very well but recently some disks just suddenly stop playing. What could be the reason?

Dirty laser.. scratches on discs..and sometimes laser diodes get weak and then will have issues playing discs. Some NEWER discs are a different format and the player will need a firmware update (connect to internet via Ethernet cable to get updates)

Hi, my sony changer control audio master wx-c580r doesn't want to play CDRs, any reason why?

On the player there must be the loge CD-R compatible. If not, it wont play CD-r disks.
Normal CD's have a metallic reflector layer, giving a high contrast. CD-r disks have a dye, that will be changed in colour by a laser, giving a lesser contrast. When the laser and detectors in the player is not capable of reading the lesser contrast they can't play CD-R disks. Most older players can't. Sony is one of the manufacturers who deliberately kept there players incompatible with CD-r disk the longest.

Hi. I recently bought a Sony CDP-CX355. Until a few days ago it was working fine. Suddenly, the player stopped reading the discs. It grabs a disc as if its going to play it, but just reads it, and then...

This happens when your laser is not able to read the data of the disc. Either u are using disc which the player cannot read or the disc is not readable. If your CD player is not reading the discs which it used to read earlier then CD player laser head has to be replaced.

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
