    Exactly the same problem! My kit is 8 years old now, and the CD player has now stopped reading cds at all!

    Mine too is having a similar problem. i had the back off it and found that the disc was not spinning. I twiddled about with it and tried it again and it began to spin, but then stopped working again. So i ejected the disc and put it back in a couple of times and it works again but i think it will play up again. it looks to me that it might be something to do with the motor that spins the disc.

    doesnt read disc all the time and also disc 2 is the only one out of the five that works.

    Same problem. It would appear that the motors in this disc unit are rubbish, which is not like technics at all. The only solution I could find is to replace the motor.

did you buy your system in adifferent region and moved with it to another? I heared something like some DVD players are region-locked. I could be wrong but google about region-lock... try this among others: http://dvd-player-software-review.toptenreviews.com/what-is-dvd-region-lock.html

Hi ..I have Pionner PD-M701 CD Chanager .the player works so fine and recognize all cds in the trays but the issue is in the reading .


hi Sam.
you could try this.
Clean the CD if it skips or the player can't read it. Use a clean lint-free cotton cloth and make sure the CD is not scratched. Use a lens-cleaning CD in the player. If you can access the lens without opening the case, clean it with a cotton swab and lens cleaner.
Why does a CD player skip? They don't scratch as easily as vinyl LPs, but I've damaged half a dozen CDs over the years. If a CD is skipping, first give it good clean using a CD wipe or mild soap and water. Dry carefully with a lint-free cloth in a straight line from the centre to the edge. Rubbing in circles can cause more damage.

Does not read Cds or DVDs


most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

My technics sl-p770 doesn?t recognize the loaded CD.A cd is alway spin but not any track in audio cd.


Try cleaning the lens with a cd/dvd lens cleaner disc. Another thing of note....some cd players simply will not recognize homemade cds, or dics that are not audio discs, or if they were made on a computer.

It won't read that there is a disk in the drive. When I put the disk in it makes a lot of noise and sounds like it's trying to start but in the end it quits and doesn't do anything.


If this happens even if you try to play several cds, then lens inside which reads the CDs needs cleaning. Try using a CD cleaner and let that spin inside the cdrom for like 30 seconds. Then try playing the a cd again. If it still fails to read them, you may need to manually clean the lens inside. Open the casing and unscrew the plastic plate the covers the lens. Get a q tip or a cotton bud and damp it with alcohol. Gently wipe the lens' surface and let it dry. Then return evrything back and try playing those discs again.

Hope this helps.

Hello Mr. Varghese,

Your LG dvd player's lens might need cleaning. It is having a hard time reading those cds that is why it sometimes skips or just stops in the middle of playing them. Does this happen also to new cd's? Sometimes cleaning those cds helps the lens reading them.

If you have a disk cleaner, you can run that for 30 seconds on your player. It that does not help, then you might need to open your DVD player's casing and clean the lens manually by opening your player, get a soft cotton earbud and damp in an alcohol and gently wipe your dvd's lens. Then try to return back everything and test playing cd.

A Sony RDR-GX210 DVD player I can play a CD - no problem but when I try a DVD, the TV screen says - ''loading please wait'' and then it drops back to the TV picture witha message - ''Can't play this disc''...


Hi Allan,

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

When your CD does not read any disk, and returns error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, or a faulty spindle motor unit.
