SOURCE: My Sony cd player spins but won't play. Cleaned

Those CD cleaners rarely work. They are nothing but small brushes on a plastic CD. Unless the problem is loose dust, they won't work. Try carefully opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, post the model number and I'll provide the replacement optics part number and cost. Some units have replacement optics that cost less than $15. Dan

SOURCE: Have a pioneer cd player model number PD-Z560T.

Hi,

My cd unit on the pioneer pd-z560t also jumps. I also tried lens cleaner, with no luck.

It was suggested to me that cleaner is only any good for a good - but dirty - lens, but no good if the lens has actually deteriorated and become weak.

I would be curious to know how a lens could actually deteriorate pls.

plese try to reply to: clerical@live.co.uk

Thanks
Andy

Denon c200 is not reading any CD's.


It is very possible that your Denon CD player needs to get the laser lens cleaned.

You can do it yourself taking the cover of and get to the laser lens and clean it.

Here is a site that shows you how to do:

or you can purchase a laser lens cleaner CD:

It doesnt play dvd only music cd


Hi,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Regards.

WON'T PLAY CD'S READS "NO DISC"


  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    When trying to play an audio cd ER appears on the screen model # 916 Thank you


    Hello

    The error code you are receiving is either due to a dirty laser lens, or a burnt out lens.

    You can try to resolve the problem by cleaning the head of the laser lens using a ear bud with some surgical spirits, or you can try a laser lens cleaning CD.

    If none of the above works, the laser lens itself is probably burnt out.

    Please fell free to contact me if you need any further assistance.

    Kind regards

    My girls princess disney cd player keeps saying that there is no cd in the player. I have no idea what's wrong with it.


    the laser lens is most likely dirty, buy a cleaning disk, or use a microfiber cloth or eyeglasses cleaning cloth and gently wipe the lens in one direction to clean it. the lens will look like a small round clear piece of glass near the motor that spins the cd, if this doesnt work, then the laser has quit working
