CD player wont work. Any suggestions


Instructions
  1. 1 Remove excess dust from the CD player. Dust is the number one enemy of electronics, and it can corrode even the most resilient device. Make sure to dust in between buttons, knobs, power cord(s) and audio-out ports. Note: use a dry duster, as moisture will harm your CD player further.
  2. 2 Use a disk-based lens cleaner to remove ground in dust or dirt from the CD player's lens. These lens cleaners look like a regular CDs, but have specially-made bushes on the reverse side that gently remove excess dirt from the CD-reading lens. Simply put the CD in your player, and press the "Play" button to clean the lens. Do not run the cleaner more than once, as excess brushing can cause scratches on the lens.
  3. Polish the lens. Use a glass or eyeglass cleaning solution and a lint-free cloth to gently polish the reading lens. Clean it by using a low amount of pressure and softly polishing the lens and its surrounding area using soft, circular motions. Do this for about a minute or two and then allow the player to sit for a few minutes before trying to play a CD.

hi there.
Although CDs are still the preferred method of audio distribution, CD players are quickly being phased out in lieu of MP3 players. If your old CD player stops working, it might be a little panic-inducing, but fear not. If the CD player turns on but does not play CDs, then the problem is not with the power cord or the circuity (which are generally more expensive to repair rather than fix) but with the lens. There are several troubleshooting steps that you can take to fix a CD player when it won't play.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* Glass/lens cleaner
* CD cleaning disk
* Dry duster

Tips & Warnings

If the CD player does not turn on or off, or the power indicator flashes infrequently, the problem is with the power cord or the circuit board, in which case the CD player will not be able to be repaired.


If the CD player still does not work after these steps, the lens has probably been scratched, and the CD player will need to be replaced.

Dvds not playing at all or stopping after a few minutes


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it is stopping.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Dvd drive does not recognize a dvd movie or a blank dvd gateway m-7315u it scans some after a few minutes it stops menu does not open or it won't play a movie


the lens is gone bad in the drive... you can replace the lens but it costs more and also will not be worth...it will play for another 3 months and will give the same problem...for replacing the lens you wll spend Rs.600, but a new player you can bought for Rs.1000 so my advice is to better go and buy a new player with atleast an year of warranty and use it completely for one year...

CD not playable


Hello

It sounds to me like the laser lens itself may be damaged or even broken.

Here is something you can try though, this might just work if the laser lens has some dust particles stuck to it. Just go to your nearest cd shop and buy yourself a laser lens cleaner disc, it is cheap.

Follow the instructions, and if the laser lens itself was dirty, this will help, otherwise the laser lens might be broken, which is a ver common problem, cause you used it for three years now.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

CD Player stopped working


Probably there is dust on the lens. My CD player (different brand) did the same. I opened the case and cleaned the lens with a photo camera brush (VERY gently). Now it works fine.

If you cannot / do not want to open the device to access the lens, you may want to buy a cleaning CD.

Won't read any disc


Could be dirty lens. I'd almost bet bad run of CD-r's though. Does the drive recognize finished cd's? If so it the CDr's.

XD-A8 CD player


This sounds like it could need just a simple cleaning with a lens cleaner disc, or could be a bad spindle motor or spindle servo circuit, or the laser is getting weak, and last but not least It very well could be a damaged or dirty slider rail or motor assembly. In my opinion, the only one that is worth the money to try, would be the cleaning. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
