I have a 3-CD player. The system does not recongnize the discs and shows no disc in display. Is it the potentiometer adjustment that is required ? Please suggest.

  • The majority of the time when a disk player shows "no disk" when attempting to play a disk either the disk is formatted wrong for the player or most likely dirty.
  • Just get a lens cleaner and run it through the player two or three times. These lens cleaners are disks with very soft bristles on them that "sweep" the lens clean.
  • The lens is real dirty and needs a good cleaning to be able to read the CD. This is common with all disk players that have not had a cleaning as they should.
  • Be sure to give the cleaning disk a run through once a week.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

My Nx-385 will not play. When I put in a disc the player attempts to read then the display screen shows the word disc. What should I do?

It sounds like there is a problem with the Laser not picking up the CD.

If you've tried a Lens Cleaning Disc or Cleaned the Lens directly with a QTip and Lens Cleaning Fluid then the Laser has failed and wound not be cost effective to replace.

My walkman skips and stutters constantly. Its getting worse. The same cd is fine in the car player.

It could be that the lens needs cleaning. Try a CD Lens Cleaner like this. They can be found at most major grocery stores and supermarkets.

When trying to play an audio cd ER appears on the screen model # 916 Thank you


The error code you are receiving is either due to a dirty laser lens, or a burnt out lens.

You can try to resolve the problem by cleaning the head of the laser lens using a ear bud with some surgical spirits, or you can try a laser lens cleaning CD.

If none of the above works, the laser lens itself is probably burnt out.

Please fell free to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

Player is dead Baatteries are good.

If you are absolutely sure the batteries are good you may need to clean the laser lense on the unit. You can do this using 200 proof alcohol and lint free swabs. Wet a swab and spin it gently on the lense surface. When you have gotten the lense dirt loosened up use the dry end to clean it. Blow canned air on lense to dry. If that was the problem your unit should now work. Remember to be very gentle with the swab when touching the lense. Let me know how this works out.

My girls princess disney cd player keeps saying that there is no cd in the player. I have no idea what's wrong with it.

the laser lens is most likely dirty, buy a cleaning disk, or use a microfiber cloth or eyeglasses cleaning cloth and gently wipe the lens in one direction to clean it. the lens will look like a small round clear piece of glass near the motor that spins the cd, if this doesnt work, then the laser has quit working

It keeps reading no-disc no matter what kind one puts in it, whats up?

Your lens could be dirty, or the motor that controls the lens may be broken, or come unhinged from the track. If you can find a way to play it while it's open (push down on the sensor button that the lid pushes on with a small screwdriver) turn it on with a CD while it's open, and watch to see if the laser moves. Make sure the laser itself never faces your eyes directly.
If the laser moves, clean it up with a soft cloth that's means for lenses.
