Question about Sony CDX-M8800 CD Player
My CDX-M8800 was working just fine but now it won't read CD-R discs.
Whenever I insert a CD-R mp3 disc, it says "READ" for a while, then it shows "ERROR" and ejects the disc. I thought it was dirty because, if I keep on inserting the disc back again, SOMETIMES it reads just fine. Once it reads, I can play the whole disc with no problems, but if I turn my car off or if I switch to Tuner, the problem starts again as soon as I try playing the CD again. It usually takes A LOT of retries to get the cd player to read the mp3 disc.
I tried a lens cleaner (the CD that has a small brush on it). It was then that I noticed the problem is with CD-R's (not sure if ALL CD-R's or just data/mp3 CD-R's), as when I inserted the lens cleaner CD, it played perfectly and instantly every time.
I would really appreciate some help with this, as I really love my cd player and I would rather not change it.
I was going to sugest switching brands of blank cdrs but you say ones that were working fine are now not ...so the problem is with the stereo not the cds.
did you try a lens cleaner the eye may be dirty ..or possibly going bad.. Hey does it read regular bought disks ok???
