Cds won't play
OK, your discription of your problem is rather vague.
Do they try to play but skip or make god awful noises? Or do you have no audio at all?
If they are skipping check to make sure there are no smudges on the underside of the CD. If so clean them with a soft cloth,
Sometimes severe scratches can cas the same problem. You can buff out some scratched using tooth paste or you can by a scratch remover that they sell in stores (it is a gadget that will clean and buff out some scratches available in many stores).
If you have any of the label missing then this is a worse issue. It is actually the top of a CD that you need to be most careful about scratching because if you remove the laquer that protects the silver layer of the CD it will remove part of the silver with it along with any audio or data that is on it. There is no repair for this.
If you have ruled out a damaged or dirty CD then be sure you are not trying to play a CD that has data files intended for computers on a player that cannot open them. The best way to do this is to check the CD on a computer and open the drive folder and view the contents of the disk. Files such as MP3, WAV, WMA and others will not play on a standard CD player. If the files are CDA that is a standard audio CD formatting. So next see if the disk plays on the computer.
If the CD plays on a computer then return to the CD player and attemp playing again. Make sure that the player recognizes the CD being in the tray. Also, verify, if you can that the CD is spinning within the player when you play. If the CD is not spinning or the player does not recognize rge disk try a disk you know to be undamaged.
If you still have problems then you will have to have your player repaired or replace it.
