Without opening a cd player it's hard to reach the lens. You can buy lens cleaning CD's that can clean the lens a little.

CD tray opens and shuts fine. With CD loaded and shut the screen still says NO DISK. These are disks which have always played without problem on this CD player. Is there anything I can try before taking...

When the CD player loads properly and still reads as no disk this indicates that the player lens (Optical device which reads the disk information) Is either dirty or bad. The only option you have is to get a disk lens cleaner and run it on the system. Once you run it, it is supposed to work if the lens is not spoilt. Otherwise you will just have to replace the lens by taking it to a repairer.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    Am getting code e-04 which manual says is dirty cd remove and clean ive looked at all cds and all appear speckless

    The CD lens may be dirty. If you have a CD lens cleaning kit or a CD-rom with a cd lens cleaning brush, I suggest you try either of those. Don't use a paper towel as they can be quite abrasive to a delicate CD lens. If you have camera lens cleaning equipment and can see the CD lens (use a flashlight), you may attempt to gently clean the lens with the camera lens cloth and solution.

    CD player does not recognize the cd's in the player

    Hi, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly asap if possible. this is basically what the issue is at Thia's time. you can confirm my diagnosis by trying to clean the lens with a lens cleaning disc. if the cleaning dosen't restore the reading ability of the lens, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly when possible.

    please rate and have a great memorial day:)

    I hav lg dvd writer it plays cd but dvd what to do

    That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When you have a lens problem the unit may still play CD but not DVDs.

    Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

    If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

    Plays cd's but lots of skipping going on. I tried cleaning with a CD player disc cleaner that I got today. That didn't help. None of the CD's skip in another machine. Thanks!!

    When optical lens got dusty or thin layer of dust on lens, cd starts skipping, as you tried cleaning with lens cleaner cd but no result.
    You need to open the unit and clean the lens with good quality cotton bud / swab with care.
    Still no joy, replace optical lens.
