    My discs reader will play the fist song fine but then it starts making a noise and when I look at the system it shows that the spinning of the disk is now a slow turn and by slow I mean like a clock ticking slow.



    I am very fustrated since this is the first time I have chosen to play the CD player since I can't seem to get good FM reception.

    Mine is doing the same thing . . . CD plays for a while . . . then spins and spins . . . finally an ERR message comes up.

    I'll get and try the lens cleaner disc.

    I can't get the cd player to accept cd's. It keep dropping them and nothing shows up on the monitor screen?

    I have the same problem with not reading CD's. It was completely out of the blue. And my system was very gently used for less than a year.

Hi, its BAD lens, try cleaning it with a lens cleaner disk, if that dosent work then you will need to replace the lens or check for the lens connector strip..sometimes a mild hot air blow in that area does the trick..let me know

My marantz cd 7300 reads no disc probably needs a new laser, where do i get one, thoes sold on ebay look different, many thanks, Peter.


This sounds crazy but it works for some reasons. Marantz CDR500 would not read and initialise some blank discs but no problem with reading finalised ones and erratic would and would-not work. Tried cleaning lens and even blowing ar through it. Before I wasted money in air I thought why not try hairdryer into open tray and lens area and just for measure across blank CD. I know this sounds weird but it worked every time and machine will read any make of disc like this. I do not have any scientific explanation only the fact that it works!!!

Hi, I have a NAD C541i cd player when i turn it on i get three blue line on the display, i open the draw and insert a CD disc but the blue lines stay on the display and the disc don't play. can you...


The blue lines you mention should flash when trying to find
the 'Table of Contents' of your CD, even if a CD isn't loaded.
If when a CD is loaded and these lines flash for a while without
any CD info e.g track no. / disc length then it's more likely that a problem has occurred with the laser.
Various NAD CD players use the Sony KSS-213 Laser unit
and for some reason particularly with NAD CD players, they tend
to drift out of calibration over time so what i usually do when i come across this is very finely adjust the pot trim on the laser itself and testing a CD between adjustments.

Player will not read cd . Cd will not spin


Without me seeing it, it usually cannot read the disc and is caused by a defective, or needs to be adjusted or cleaned, laser assembly as long as it is every cd put in it. It can also be the disc spinner motor. Either one of those is the most likely cause. :)

Hi i have a sony car stereo that plays the radio only!


what is happening on the display is the laser reading the disc if its not reading the disc your cd player is faulty more than likely the laser is either dirty or had its day,make sure there is compatible music data on the disc,also check all the sound options on the stereo.

Audiovox D1998 portable DVD player will no long read disc.


This of course may not be the exact same thing, but mine did the same thing. Sounding like it was loading, but in fact pressing the open button it I could see the disc not spining at all (normally you would.) With the power off of course. I took all the bottom screws out (where ever the arrow points to a screw) including to the display. There is one ribbon cable easily disconnected. I lifted the mount the DVD sits on and reseated it. I put a disc in it, turned on the power and the disc turned. Great I thought. I reconnect the cable, put the screws back in - and its working.

Ps2 stuck on memory card screen


If its not an original disc, meaning if it was copied or burnt, then this will happen. However if it is in fact an original PS2 disc, then I'd suggest taking it out, cleaning and trying again.

Does not recognise disc


Try to change the laser unitKSS-240A (opticals). In most cases problem solved. The "zik-zik" sound is made by the motors in the unit as the laser tries to read the CD.
Caution, after installing the new laserunit remove the short circuits on the laserunit itself. This it put there just to protect the laser from static energie faulure during repair.

hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.

Every time i put a cd in it won't read


This indicated that the unit is having a problem reading the disc. This can be because the disc is upside down, dirty, scratched, misaligned laser, dirty laser. Try to reset and run a cleaning disc through the unit. If it still cant read it may be a mechanical issue stopping the unit from reading the disc
