Re: Disc won't play

I followed the advice given earlier and used a cotton-tip to wipe dust from the laser glass and the problem was fixed. Try this yourself.

Re: Disc won't play

Silmilar problem on a MX-D501T
At times the unit fails to recognise the music CD in the tray, or recognises its presence and shows tracks & time play on screen but doesn't initiate playing. The fault is erratic. Pushing 'play' on the remote doesn't initiate either.
Is this a faulty head or 'dry joints' somwhere?

How do i repair the no disc display

The first check should be by inserting an other know good disc into the tray, and attempt to play it. If it does, or do not, make sure that the laser pickup unit to to set is faulty; and have to be replaced. An other possibility is improper disc loading, due to faulty loader mechanism and with a faulty sled motor. Contact any service technician in this case. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

RCA RS2664 Stereo wont play CD in any of the trays but seems to try to scan to play.

The laser pickup unit's lens may be dirty or dusty. Just put a lens cleaning disc into the tray, and play it at least three times, by ejecting the disc each time, and reinsert in in to. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town, and won't cost more. If it dose not help you, the laser pickup unit of your RCA device should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?

If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    CD playing erratic

    Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps
