Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.
Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.
Clean lense on cd pickup. Remove spin motor. Spray some WD40 in the bottom of the motor and connect 5 volts dc to motor and spin for a few seconds in both directions. The motor brushes need cleaned off. This works on most all cd players. Reinstall the motor.If this does not fix replace cd assy. Check solder connections on volume control. If ok replace control.I had one of these that i sold for $500.00 on Ebay. Even used there is a demand for this item.
* Tech Stuff * Audio CDs do not spin at a constant rate. They are designed to be read (for music) at a "constant linear velocity" of about 1.25 meters per second. The data is written in a tight spiral starting at the inside of the CD. The CD spins the fastest when reading the inside tracks and slows down as it reads towards the outside edge. Imagine circles on the CD surface. The inside ones would be smaller than the outside ones, of course. So, if you are reading evenly-spaced bits on the lines of those circles, you would need to read fewer outside circles per second than the small inside circles.
* Basic Issue * When the player is reading Track 1 the CD is spinning at about 500 rpm. During the last tracks of a (full) CD it only needs to spin at about 200 rpm. It doesn't work the other way around for compatibility reasons.
* More Info * This is why you are experiencing the difference in mechanical noise at different tracks. It doesn't necessarily reflect a defect, but understandably, a consumer would prefer a quieter system, which does differ between manufacturers and models (I couldn't specs for a KS200 HK device) Yet, if the noise is substantial, it may very well be indicative of a problem, e.g. something stuck in the drive and being whipped around in a circle at high speed. I wouldn't say this is particularly likely.
* Possible Help * What would normally mitigate this issue is not getting too close to the player while listening. Normally having the primary listening position several few feet away (across the room) would suffice to minimize noise heard from fans and spooling CDs.
try cleaning the lens first use a lint free swab and GENTLY clean the lens. don't use any liquid on this. if that doesn't work then load a disc and gently spin the disc when it lifts into load posistion. if begins to spin on it's own then replace the spindel motor. if it still does not spin, replace the optical pickup, the EF sensors inside the pickup no longer have the ability to read (see) the disc.
BeoSound 2000 - The CD won't even spin now. The cover closes, the Number 1 for the track appears in the display, then the cover immediately reopens showing what looks to be something like this [ ] in the display.
i have the same exact problem with mine. what i did was manually pull open the cd deck, stop the disk carousel from spninning by holding it still, then push the deck closed. the cd deck will no longer work, but at least it stops spinning. the auxiliary works fine and so does the radio.
