I have an AKAI radio/cd/tape player combo. For about a year I had to toggle the switch around a few times just to get the radio to come on, now I cannot get any sound at all with the cd or radio

Akai used to produce quality gear. Today in common with lots of premium manufacturers the gear is less repairable and a whole lot more disposable. This is because it is less "engineered" and more designed for cost-effective assembly.
Mechanical switches and potentiometers for instance, add weight and expense to the manufacture and shipping and they wear out or get dirty and don't work - but they can be replaced or cleaned relatively easily. Soft touch controls and electronic switching is cheaper to produce and more pleasing to some buyers but when they go wrong cleaning rarely works and repairs are beyond the usual scope of the hi-fi enthusiast, meaning expensive repair-shop costs. It is worth attempting to clean the switches if there is access and you feel adventurous.

It sounds as though you have nothing to lose. There is a wide selection of switch and electrical cleaners available, some with an added lubricant for mechanical switchgear and potentiometers though for some things a cotton bud or a slip of paper dipped in methylated spirit works well.

Good luck!

Cd player is not workig.

Sometimes the lazer will get jamed.
Gently move the lazer eye (without touching the lense) to the outside of the disk draw, put in a disc and try.
It might work (has for me)!
If the disk won't spin then the drive is probably stuffed, probably cheaper to replace than repair.

Good luck, new cd/radio players are relatively cheap, so not many people fix them any more.
Throw away society, sorry if this didn't help.

Radio works ok, nothing from the cd player its like there is no power to the unit, nothing happens when you insert a disk or press the disk button just dead, any ideas. cheers Nick. ps its a standard...

If the radio works but the CD player doesn't it's something internal to the unit. The radio and CD player get their power source from the same wire that goes into the unit.

No sound

other than just double checking your switches settings there really isn't much you can do ,as there really isn't any easy to replace parts inside and that would be cost prohibitive anyhow , but do remember it is a clock radio , if its set t o use the alarm the radio will not work and not the cd either , ck all your switches for proper setting , one may have got bumped by you or cleaning staff
this is the reason I use a sound bar/phone dock as I use it to charge my phone and play music all day at my desk , they only cost about fifteen bucks to buy , and best thing is there's nothing for anyone to mess with when im not there as it wont work without my phone docked in it !!
