Sometimes my CD player won't read the cd's and other times it works just fine. I have leveled it and it seems to be working better but I'm not sure that's going to fix it.

HELLO

Have you tried cleaning the lens? Do this by removing the top cover of the player and by using a cotton bud and isopropyl alcohol.

Wet the bud (not too much) and remove excess liquid. Using a gentle circular motion clean the lens. Wait a few minutes to let it dry and try the player again. If you know what discs were a problem playing then use them.

If all is OK you have cured the problem - give it a try! (:-)

I have a RDS stereo and it won't play my cd's. It says player error


RESET YOUR PLAYER AT DEFAULT SETTINGS. SWITCH IT OFF. SWITCH IT ON AND INSERT CD. GIVE THE PLAYER TIME TO READ. DON'T PRESS ANY BUTTONS TILL IT COMPLETE IT'S READING. IT WILL PLAY THE CD.

ALSO CHECK CD'S ARE BRANDED AND NOT COPY FROM COMPUTER. FEW COMPUTER WRITE CD NOT HAVE AUTO PLAY OPTION.

IF PROBLEM NOT SOLVE PLEASE INTIMATE.

My DVD player won't read, keeps saying disk error


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

I have just purchased an HP Desktop computer and when I burn a Cd for music, everyting seems to work ok but when I try to play that CD on another player in my home, it won't play. Is there a setting...


Check the type of the blank CD/DVD you are using. Certain players won't be able to play CD-RW for instance.

If that doesn't solve the problem you might try to slow down your burn speed for a better quality CD/DVD. Sometimes a faster burn speed will lower the quality and other devices can have trouble reading these.

Won't play cd reads toc error


i've had this happen with my stereo a few times too. i'm not sure why exactly it does it but it seems to only happen with a burned cd. i just took the cd out and made sure it was clean and put it back in. although sometimes i'd have to do it several times before it would read it. but it usually works eventually for me

Sometimes won't read disc. other times works fine


Sounds like your laser lense, sensor that detects the ones and zeros from the laser, is dirty. Try using a cleaning CD, you can get them at any electronics store/department. Ex: Walmart, RadioShack, Best Buy.
