Question about CD Players
My right hand deck is giving me the error message err 02 or err 03 when inputting a disk. Tascam's manual suggests to try a new disk/ clean present disk. I have tried many times with many differnt cds with no luck. The next port of call would be to take the unit to a service centre, i was just wondering could this be solved an easier way eg disk cleaner? I don't want a hefty repair bill but if this is the only option then sadly i'll have to take it. Can anyone help??
Try cleaning the laser first. Take care, because it is delicate.
Some instructions of how to clean a CD laser:
If the cleaning does not fix the fault, it is possible that the laser is weak, or there are some problems in the electronics in the CD player. This is not something you will be able to service yourself, unless you are properly trained, have experience, and have the proper setup to perform CD player servicing.
In most cases these CD players are not cost effective to service. You can contact the orignal manufacture for details or any recomendations.

The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.
If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.
Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.
You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.
If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.
If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

I had the same problem but fixed it by replacing the cd belt which was broken and relined the main cd plate which holds cd to correct position . and god fixed it.
No more errors and now a great cd Hi Fi.
Make sure all s aligned and blow out all dust with an blower or air compressor.
I pull the top plates off blow air into them and replaced a broken belt for cd's and not it's new machine.
You want to fix it than fix at the source.
