My music system will mot play CDs


Hi, 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



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.


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.


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.


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.

I have tesco cd-rw and will not work on the Philips CDR880 CD Player what cd s doo i have too get


try checking with the Philips web site BUT usually Maxwell or other good named brands that cost more DO work.
A friend has a theory that all CD-RW and CD-r are made the same and when a batch is quality controlled to good quality go to the quality firms as they will be more reliable and the poor ones go to the stack it high sell it cheap firms.
This may be true because I only get problems with the "cheap" discs - which I don't buy any more!
GOOD LUCK

THE CD PLAYER STOPS AFTER ABOUT 2O MINS any idea why


Check the laser lens inside the unit - inspect it for dirt or dust. Clean with "Q" tip and alcohol. If the problem persists, the laser might be going out. Check the lens to verify it moves up and down. Check the lens to observe a red beam. If these processes do not occur - the laser is bad.

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.

MY cd player is not playing cd


If you can gain access to the lens, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are starting to fail. You should be able to find replacement optics for around $40 or so.

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.
