Although you will rarely be able to repair your own CD player, you may be able to diagnose problems.
That can help you decide whether to have it repaired.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.
Clean the lens.
Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.
Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work.
Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.
Check for a stuck CD if the drawer won't open or close or will only partially open or close.
If there isn't one, have gears and belts replaced.
Lubricate the gears if the CD player will only play certain tracks or up to a particular point on a disc.
Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips.
Look for loose or broken internal connections.
Have the power supply replaced if your CD player overheats.
If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.
Hope this helps.
