Sounds like the cd rom is faulty,the little motor that spins the disc could be faulty or voltage driving it is cut off due to a electrical component failure.You can open the unit and with the cd tray open look for a tiny microswith at the rear or font around the tray that activates power to the motor when the cd draw closes,it may be dirty but and need a bit of lubricant to free it up but most likely it's the motor.

The CD player will play some purchased CD-s but will not play others. The ones that it will not play do NOT iniate the disc motor but a click is heard and the display reads NO DISC. I have cleaned the...


If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!

Hello i have a dvd-K500 multi disk cd stacker.it plays every cd but it stops in the middle of every 2nd track on every disc. can u help me? drew


it just needs a good lazer clean. as lazers read furthur to the inside or end of a disc the lazer needs to be able to read at 70% more power thus it must be fully free from dust smoke residue and other air born particles good luck.

Player is not scanning disks. keeps saying no disk no matter what disk is used.


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Not recognising that there is a cd in there. keeps saying 'no disk'


Hi there , have you tryed cleaning the lazer lens very gentle with a cotton bud , the lazer could be quite costly to replace , there is a very small ajustment on the lazer inside the unit but would need someone with a bit no how to ajust the setting a very small amount to see if the lazer will work better .

CD Player Skipping And Spinning Backwards!


Clean laser first. Near the laser there will 2 / 3 adjustable pots. Mark location on them all first. Pick one (then another) move a little left or right and see if you can get it working. If all fails return them to original positions nothing but time lost.

My new DVD player will play all CDs except the ones I burned on my laptop. Why is this and how can I get the DVD player to play those CDs? when I record a dvd on my lap top it will allow me to play it...


Hi,
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.

Cd player does not work


unplug it, unscrew the screws holding the cover on, you should be able to see the lazer lens where the disks go, now take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it and gently rub the lens in one direction to remove any dust. cd players are very picky about dust and even just a little can give you a no disc error. ive had to do it to many cd players, so this should work for you! good luck
