Cd player not working

Hi, I have an old Panasonic cd player SA-AK28. It is a 5 disk player. At the moment when I try and play a cd it keeps alternating between cds saying there is no disk which is not the case. I am probably going to upgrade soon anyway but would still like to know if this is a simple problem to fix. Could this be a problem with the laser?

Panasonic SA-AK29 Disc Drawer won't stay closed.

It is quite possible that the timing within the mechanism had changed. Since the timing is quite important to activate the mode switch to triggerr the sequential action of the mechanism to proceed accordingly, a small change in any of the links can change the mode to keep away from resetting. Please open the set and check if there is any foreign particles lodged into the dirve mechanism. Clean and proceed. Check carefully for any sensors that are out of sync.If you are not sure do not attempt but try tomake a small correction to complete the loading so as the complete the mode. If so the fault might clear. Hope this helps you out.Good day

Panasonic SA-PM19 5 disc player jumps around, starting at or near first track, plays a little, then jumps a good chunk, plays a little more etc, until it reaches (quickly) the end of the disc. It does this...

Could be a CD defect, but probably just dust inside. Try canned air, or connect IPOD after you convert CD's to MP3's or other player to AUX port as a connector as a work a around. Splicers available online if you already have a TV connected.

Want to play cd on old cd player

If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.

CD player won't play disk and says "no disk"

The problem of "'no discs'"displayed is in the mechanism in the roller thats moving back and port bringing the lense set .The old grease thier is already hardened that cause the problem.Clean that by using a lighter fluid or like that fluid to take the old grease,and put it with a new one first class grease type-A grease put only a little grease and wipe the lense with a cotton buds without any chemicals on it .Try this solution so performance will be better.
