    I have the same problem. After some time the CD doesn't work any more. Unfortunatelly I'm in Brazil and Emerson didn't support me here. Now I'm trying to find a service manual in order to fix the audio set. Please, if someone has the service manual (eletronic diagram) just let me know.

Wont play cds. toc read comes back with no disc. what is wrong

Make sure discs are clean, purchase a lense cleaner to remove any grime or particles from the CD lense. If still no joy your laser is either out of focus, miss-tracked or completely shot and requires replacement. If it's the latter, rplacements can cost from $50 upwards depending upon what is required to fix the problem. You may be wise to replace the system OR purchase a seperate CD player (as used in a seperates system) and plug it into the aux input.

What does TOC read mean, the cd does not spin

TOC stands for Table of Contents. On a MiniDisc recorder or CD recorder, a Table Of Contents MUST be written before a disc is usable. On A player, a TOC must be read before the unit knows where to find the songs. Sounds like the laser is NOT reading the TOC, so you will hear nothing until that is corrected (clean lens or replace unit). Try a storebought CD, as perhaps is doesn't like your own burned CD's and most units built before 2000 will not read your own CD's that you make.

Cd player problem

From your brief description it sounds like there is a faulty component in the CD detector and pre amp section of the CD side of your sound system.

The Radio has its own separate Radio Frequency detecter circuitry and pre amp section so thats why the radio is OK.

There is no quick fix until the CD section can be inspected and the item causing the fault replaced..

Cheers From YUBEUT..

CD's won't play

I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.
