First thing to do is to clean the lens on the pickup. Use camera or Eyeglasses lens cleaner that is safe on plastics. If that doesnt help then it may be either your spindle height is wrong or the focus is off. Both of these should be checked by a tech. Sometimes as laser pickup get older they go out of adjustment. There are usually pots on the main board for track error and focus and a few other parameters. There are also sometimes pots on the pickup itself. I wouldnt recommend adjusting these yourself but if you do it anyway, mark them with a magic marker for thier original position so you can return to it if the adjustment doesnt help. You make a tiny adjustment and try a disc....then repeat. Small adjustments are all thats needed!!! If you arn't sure what your doing dont touch it. Service personel use an oscilloscope and a test disc with voltage measurements to properly do the adjustments.

Cd player is not working. One day it was working and next day it wasn't. I guess a button was pushed and now we can't figure out. Cd player will not read or play cds


?: Does the cd spins? If it does the optical eye that reads the cd could be dirty. Clean the eye with cd lens cleaner. If the cd is not spinning the motor could be bad. Also some cd players can't read certain disks because of the density of the disk. Make sure you read the manual to see what cds are compatible with your boombox. I hope these solutions were helpful.

Good Luck

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.

Sony cd walkman reads but won't play


If you have a small enough screwdriver and some time it's not too hard. I just fixed one of my kids' walkman (same make & model) yesterday. The motor that spins the gears that makes the laser assembly move back & forth came loose. There is a single screw that holds this motor in place. They should use some lok-tite or similar when they assemble these things.

Error 2 on Display


Mabye. I would suggest either opening the unit up and cleaning thr "laser" (optical pickup) with a q-tip. Or try using one of those cleaning cds that have the little cleaner fabric on the inderside... if that doesent work something is most like wrong with the cd machanism wether its not spinning the cd or just not reading it due to a defective laser.. ampman!
