I have been experiencing the same problem all of a sudden. Almost like it doesn't recognize that there is any information on the disc(s), regardless of whether it is a CD-R or Original disc. As I looked closer, I saw there is also a small spring connected at the top on the swing arm that pulls the CD in (behind disc indicator light) but it is not connected to anything at the other end of the spring. Just hanging there...I've never noticed it before.

1) Have you found a solution to get your CDs to play?
2) Does anyone have a clue what the other end of this spring is supposed to connect to? Or know where I can find a detailed diagram of the pieces on this part of the device?

    I just repaired my cd changer. I also had the spring hanging down between the arm. When I looked closer, the plastic piece at the very bottom of the slot in the arm had broken off, it was under the right tray. I just drilled a small hole in the arm and connected the spring with a small piece of solid wire.

I want tohook up a Kenwood KA-88 Amp. to a KT-58 Tuner to a DP-M5540 disc player and KA-68W Cassette deck. how do I do it?

Find the manuals or go by the basic INs to OUTs rule. REC = OUT, Play = IN. "Tuner" and "Aux/CD" are not literal. They're for anything BUT a turntable. But remember ONLY a turntable would ever use "PHONO".

This picture shows the rear of the KA-88

Does anyone know where the spring on the loading arm hooks to ?

It might be best to try a free download of the service manual from this site. Go to pages 38 and 39 and find out where the spring is located in the exploded views.

Hope this helps

How do you get to the lens to clean it?

If you've never cleaned the lens, I recommend not doing so. Take it to a repair shop. The lens is difficult to access for the consumer. It is also fragile to handle and may get damaged if not properly cleaned.

The piece of plastic that held the spring in place probably broke off like mine did. I repaired it by drilling a small hole under the bottom of the slot in the arm and connected it with a piece of solid wire.
