Question about Onkyo TX-SV545 Receiver
It stopped reading CDs out of nothing, it is relatively new, bought it late 2012. Power connections are ok, the rest of the audio system works perfectly.
You can try cleaning the reader. There are kits for this where you simply put the cleaning disk in. If this does not work you reader is most likely shot and the only fix is to replace it.

Testimonial: "Jerry, thank you very much. I will try cleaning first, I hope will work. Thanks again!"
Running a cleaner is the first step but this removes only dust. This works is a lot of cases. If this does not work you can try this or have it done by a pro as a last resort. Not for the faint hearted :-)
Get a fine sable hair paint/calligraphy brush
A few Cotton buds
Distilled water or soft water
take an small dot of detergent and dilute it in a spoon or capfull of water.
Open the unit till you can see and access the CD players lens.
(Do not spill any liquids inside!)
Put a small dab of the diluted detergent on the lens and very very gently swish it around on the lens to wash of any oily residue. Tamp off any remaining water on the lens with a cotton bud. Repeat with plain distilled water a few times to remove any detergent left. Let it dry - now the lens should show rainbow hues - clean!
See if it works now!
I have used plain pure alcohol to clean with good results. Isopropyl or propanol and methanol works.
