Have a jvc MX-J500. (purchased as a previously owned unit) When a cd is inserted in any of the three trays it just says "no Disc". Radio works as well as the cassette player. System was dusty but appeared...

You could try a CD lens cleaning disc which will clean any dust off the laser lens. But it is possible the laser power can be low if it is an old player. this will stop the discs being read fence the fault No CD as it cant see the disc. This will mean either a new laser assembly or complete CD deck. Try the cleaning disc first and if that does not work take it to a service centre or just use it as a radio cassette in the garage.

I have a Philips model #FWM575/37 Cd/Tape/Radio combination player. It is only 3 years old and the CD portion is not working. CD starts playing, then stops and can't get any CD to work.

You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

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.

Fw316C cd player will not read discs

Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one

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.
