The optical lens assembly is damaged at this point. the lens has burned out and the tracking/load motor seems to be faulty as well. replace the optical lens asap.

Plays 1st disc ok...2nd disc ok has trouble seeing 4-6

Hello,that unit uses one laser and the tray brings each cd to that laser for it to be read.The fact that a particular disc is having problems leads me to believe the disc is at fault,look for scratches and/or fingerprints on its clear metallic side.

CD does not play. I ran a cleaning disc, still does not play

Cleaning discs aren't 100% effective. It's possible the pickup lens is still dirty and not able to read the CD. The best way to clean the lens is by gently swabbing with a cleaning solution designed for cleaning them, but it's not always easy to get clear access to the lens.

The laser may just be too weak now to work reliably. Their power does drop with aging and use. The pickup is replaceable, but part cost and labor may make it just as economical to buy a new player. (I fix these things, and I just bought a new player myself. It was only $20 more than a new pickup would have cost for my old Sony. A seller on eBay had a great deal on new 5-disc Onkyos.)

Also, is this playing any CDs at all? Some older players don't work well, if at all, with burned discs. If you're having trouble playing home-made discs but commercial ones play, this may be why. (It's also a symptom of pickup failure, though, so that may still be the trouble.)

Onkyo 6 disc cd player onkyo DX-C390

The unit can not read the discs. It will search through all 6 positions then quit. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this with your results.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc

Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
