Your CD player is failed. It will need to be replaced. Some folks can repair but it cost less to have it replaced. If no one local will do it BOSE will for about $150.

The cd player goes into a "skipping" "playing really fast" mode occasionally. Esp. 3rd track, 1st cd. Always has.


It's having trouble reading the CDs. The thing that reads it could be dirty. But try a different cd. The CD player is getting old and if there is even a small scratch it will be hard to read it. A new CD player would be the way to go

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail


That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.

Dvdcd player is not reading some cds and reads others


This has to do with the type of CD you are trying. Is it a VCD, SVCD, etc.? Also, some CD players will only play certain formats of CDs. For instance, it will play regular store-bought CDs, and will play CD-R discs that you have made in the computer, but won't play any RW discs like CD-RW or CD+RW discs. ALSO, some players will play CD-R and CD-RW but any + discs, like CD+RW are not compatible.
Basically all players will work with a CD-R, and usually CD-RW but the + ones are less compatible. If I knew your model CD player I could check for you, but that is probably the case. Stick with CD-R and you should be good to go.
Lastly, rarely, but sometimes, the drive may not like the disc brand you are using due to the composition used (like if the bottom is blue or greenish). Tends to be that blue or what they say is cyan discs work best. I use TDK and Verbatim branded CD-R and CD-RW, and they seem to work best.
Good luck!!

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Wont read some discs


People need to learn to leave more info if they want proper help!

What type of discs? You say some, are they CD-R, CD-RW, SACD, CD+R, CD+RW, standard store bought Audio CD?

When copying audio cds for playback in other players, always use CD-R to avoid any type of confilcts. CD-R will play in almost any CD player, even from the 80s. Some players say they will support CD-RW, but that is NOT GUARANTEED!

If it is Audio CDs, then the laser may be dirty. If it is MP3 cds or DATA cds, then try only putting one type of file on the disc, such as only MP3s, or only WMAs.

Denon DCM 390 not longer reads discs--HELP!


Hi there, this lens may be dirty or it may have a thin layer of heat film that is causing it to not read in a consistent manner. i would try to clean the lens with a good CD lens cleaner. if the cleansing doesn't restore the lens to its original reading state, this will confirm lens assembly failure and you will need to replace this assembly.

CD player fails to read CDs


It's likely it's dirt on the CD lens. You can try cleaning it with a lens cleaning disc. But if the lens has been damaged it will never read the disc again, no matter how many times it is cleaned.
