SOURCE: Marantz CD-5000 CD player

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.

If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

Good luck..

You will need contact at Sony Customer Service line to get the Manual Reset Code for your specific model; each Sony has a different unlock code. The only alternative is trying all 99999 codes, if this dont work then search contact support.

Its time to replace the optical unit ( lens ) of the CD player. Brace yourself the unit on some of those old players can cost more than a new DVD player.

Dvd drive does not recognize a dvd movie or a blank dvd gateway m-7315u it scans some after a few minutes it stops menu does not open or it won't play a movie

the lens is gone bad in the drive... you can replace the lens but it costs more and also will not be will play for another 3 months and will give the same problem...for replacing the lens you wll spend Rs.600, but a new player you can bought for Rs.1000 so my advice is to better go and buy a new player with atleast an year of warranty and use it completely for one year...

My Panasonic DVD S35 reads "No Disc"

This means that it's time to get a new player; the laser head has failed. This eventually happens to many older optical drive devices like dvd and cd players and now that new ones are so cheap it's simply not worth repairing.

Your model is around six to seven years old now, so it's lasted well and spares are likely to be difficult to obtain.

It may interest you to know that if your dvd remote is still in good condition and fully functional, there's normally a ready market for them on auction websites. A good clean one could easily pay half of the cost of a new £30 dvd player.

Sorry there's no fix, but I hope that you have found my reply to be of some use. If so, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Cd lens replacement

Yes. you will usually be responsible for the purchase of the part and shipping if it is needed. you may find some repair techs in your immediate area, but this is rare. the optical assembly will cost about 95 dollars and the labor will vary from shop to shop.

Typical repair cost will be around 250 dollars. this is including the shipping fee and parts and labor.

Cyber Home DVD Lens Needed Urgently

Hello Sir,

Unfortunately the lens for this player will cost more then a whole new player. These tiny players are designed to be thrown away after they are worn out. Your best plan is to throw it away and purchase a new player.

Sorry I could not help you further

Thanks for reading!
