I believe the lens is dirty

My boombox is erratic in which cds it will play and now the ones it does play sound terrible. I've tried cleaning the inside tray and removed dust and dirt using a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. What should I do now?

Maybe the lens just needs cleaning:

Radio ShackI believe the lens is dirty - 2.gif has a laser lens cleaner for DVD's (Item# 42-227 $14).
It is an "Audio CD2.gif", so read the instructions carefully and have your speakers / headphones on to listen to what is on the audio CD.

It is a CD with a single row of tiny brushes. No chemicals involved.

Get it... it may fix the issue.

We have a panasonic rx d15, not used it for a while. Put a cd in, but shows as no cd.... won't play. Any ideas please. Have tried different cds, but still show as no cd.


If it has been a while the laser lens is probably dirty and needs cleaning, you can buy a disc cleaning kit and load it in the machine. The other option is to dis-assemble the unit and use a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol being careful to clean it gently. If this fails a new assembly will be needed but this would not be cost effective.

Our Insignia Boombox does not detect the CD. CDs are placed in the Boombox face up, but it continues to say "no disc."


I hope you mean "label side up" since every boombox I have ever seen plays discs face down. If you are putting them in upside down, your CDs certainly won't be detected. However, maybe in yours the CD does need to go in that way.

If you are putting the discs in the right way, the lens on the laser pickup may be dirty. You can try a cleaning disc, but these often don't do any good. And in some multi-disc players they can even jam and cause damage. It's usually best to clean the lens with a cotton swab and lens cleaner.

Another possibility is that the pickup is just too worn out to play anymore. If this is a new problem and it's not because of dirt, the pickup may need to be replaced. Over time the laser power drops, and when it gets too weak there isn't enough light bouncing off the disc for the pickup to register it. Pickups are replaceable, but depending on the part cost and the work needed to get to it, it may be more economical to replace the boombox.

My sony CFD-E100 won't recognize CDs


use a cotton swab to clean the optical lens-which is seen by opening the CD cover. if after cleaning the lens it still doesnt play a cd - exercise all manual switches(could be a dirty cd/radio switch), several times. after these steps, and the cd still refuses to spin...its hopless. the optic is bad.and not economical to repair. bet the cotton swab does the trick.

My RCA RCD160 Radio/CD playder will not play CDs.


Try cleaning the lens in the CD player with a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, it is likely that the optics are defective and need to be replaced.

Cd player is not working. One day it was working and next day it wasn't. I guess a button was pushed and now we can't figure out. Cd player will not read or play cds


?: Does the cd spins? If it does the optical eye that reads the cd could be dirty. Clean the eye with cd lens cleaner. If the cd is not spinning the motor could be bad. Also some cd players can't read certain disks because of the density of the disk. Make sure you read the manual to see what cds are compatible with your boombox. I hope these solutions were helpful.

Good Luck

My CFD-Z501 won't play a disc. I get the message "no disc"


Try to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 in Walmart). Or simply use cotton swab (Q-TIP) and 40 % ethyl alcohol (vodka) or 50-70% isopropyl alcohol (NO ACETONE), depending on your budget.
Also check if discs are inserted correctly and not damaged/durty etc. Also check your discs. Some CD-players dont accept burned CDs (copyed). I believe Sony is not the case, just a suggestion.
If cleaning wont help lens might be damaged.
Good Luck

Hi there , heres a simple case of the recording format on the cds , its likely that your daughter's cds are recorded on a computer in a format probably mp3 or higher speed thats not compartible with your boom box . The solution to this is to record your cds in Normal format , and they will surely play !
