Question about Philips WACS700 Shelf System

Wont accept cd

My 2 year old WACS700 suddenly wont accept a cd. It feels like there is already a disk in there but definately isnt.I had trouble like this once before but it righted itself. Any ideas what is wrong. Currys want £90 just to look at it. So frustrating!

    Same problem with an 18 month old WACS700. There is now a CD in the slot, but it is not recognised and won't eject.

Run a CD cleaner first.
Also, make sure the station has the most recent firmware version.

Will not accept cd disc

I can only try to help based on your lack of information... is it plugged in? is there already a disk in the player? is it not accepting burnt disks or store bought ones or both? are you loading it upside down? did you remove the tray lock

I have a wacs700 which will not boot up. Any suggestions.

Hi,If your system's screen just display ''booting up please wait'' Your hard disk is corrupted.In this case the hard disk should be replaced.But first the installation of new hard disk of the original program I mean the image of the old hard disk.If you find that image and install a new hard drive will solve the problem.

If there is sound in radio mode, but no audio in CD mode (for any CD/MP3 disc of course) , there is a lens problem. Try to clean the lens with cleaning disk. If it wont help you need lense replacement.
Good luck

This is usually caused by the back PCB failing on the CD mechanism. They should be available as spares.
Consult a local service agent.
