Question about Aiwa XR-M131 Shelf System

CD's sound awful

Tried several CDs and when the CD does play (which is not every time and not for long periods of time) there is a lot of background noise. Also, the player is unable to read the CD (same one I've played in my daughter's room for 5 years and I've burned a new one just in case it was the CD) every time. It just keeps searching.

Re: CD's sound awful

Try cleaning the lens with a CD lens cleaner. If that doesn't work, the optical pickup may be back. If tht is the case, it can be repaired but it will probably cost quite a bit (more than $100) to repair.

The laser pickup over time becomes weaker until it starts skipping and will not play sound in some cases. Try a cd cleaning kit and follow instructions, if no change unit will need to be replaced.

My Memorex MX4118 no longer has sound when CDs are played. The display shows the CD tracks and progress while "playing" but no sound. Used a cd lalser lens cleaner but still no sound.

If it's clocking time on the disc predictably don't mess with the laser.

Is the CD indicator lit? See page 18.

Press the PLAY/PAUSE > '' / POWER ON button to select CD; the CD indicator will appear in
the display.

Your CD player is failed. It will need to be replaced. Some folks can repair but it cost less to have it replaced. If no one local will do it BOSE will for about $150.
