Question about Philips AZ1574 Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

CD player giving NF disk or NO disk message after being on pause.

My CD player was on pause for a long time till I noticed. Now I can't get it to read any disks. Is it burned out? It worked after for a short while. Then says either NF disk or NO disk.

    Thanks, but that didn't seem to work.  Any other ideas?

    I have cleaned the lens and it made no change. after it was on pause too long, it recognized disks that I had not made on my own computer (itunes burns...) but then it stopped doing that, giving me a nf disk message.  I then cleaned it and tried many times to restart it, but it made no difference.


    And yes, it is a Philips AZ 1574 cassette Cd player that I love and am seriously bummed about losing! 


    Thanks for your help

Hi,
Seems optical lens it little bit dusty and requires cleaning.
Take out CD if its inside player, clean optical lens in CD compartment with good quality cotton bud gently and put CD again and play it.
Thanks.

    OK, test and confirm that particular CD in another player or DVD ROM in computer.

    Player seems got problem with optical lens, hold its sides with fingers ( do not touch lens surface) and slide it outwards, close cd cover and check, does lens come to its inner position back?
    If yes, then optical laser diode got weak in laser emission and optical block will be replaced that cost you approx new player price.
    Thanks.

How to unlock samsung bdc6900 to watch blue ray disc from region a


1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player off and then back on. This is necessary to clean-boot the firmware.

3. After the "No Disk" message appears, do the following.

4. Press the REPEAT button - just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller.

5. Enter 7 6 8 8 4 on the number pad.

6. After a sec or two, the region code (for whatever region it is currently set to) should appear at the top left corner of the screen.

7. Wait till this number disappears.

11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free. Wait till the number 9 disappears.

12. Power down and power up again.

13. Play a foreign DVD to verify the change.


Please Note your timing , when entering the code is crucial, dont press the buttons too quickly but also dont enter them too slowly, dont pause while entering them either, or you will have to start again. This is very important

Pause/resume function in analogue, manual recording mode


This player has essentially the same guts as my Pioneer PDR-509, so this is what it means...

'Repair' means the player lost power in mid-recording without commiting the track memory to a table of contents. It would likely take up to 40 minutes for the player to reconstruct it from the disk.

There is NO reason the player need be turned off (if that's where it took you) for a track pause.

Just press Pause, flip the LP over and hit Play or Pause again when you wish to continue recording.

Perhaps you don't know how to Finalize the disc either. It's not that intuitive. Press Finalize, after a while it will display a time, like 4:07. That means how long it will take to do the operation. Now press Pause and it will count down to 0:00 and be done. Then you can play it on any other CD player.

CD jammed inside player


Remover the player's cover. That will give you access to the player's internals and therefore also the CDs. That is the only way to go about a problem like the one you are facing.

Disconnect the player from the mains supply before doing this.

Good luck.

My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...


I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

"No Disk" message on front display


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

Factory image recovery on hp error 0x4001100200001005 when useing the recovery disk to go back to factory only loads up to 33%


I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.

When you unhooked your deck it still had power going to it, you need to unplug your car battery and plug it back in that should reset the deck and get the error message to go away.
Good luck,
