    CDs in the Toshiba SD4990 wont load. DVDs do, but not CDs or CD-Rs.

    I've tried to clean the disk using Scotch DVD/CD Laser Lens Cleaner Disk and even that wont load.

    I have opened the top and the dvd is not spinning. It just sits there with the Load light flashing.

    When I put a dvd into the player, it just keeps flashing loading and nothing happens. I've had the machine for over a year and this just started today.

There are 2 reasons, your cd rom lens might be dirty and needs to be cleaned, you may use the lens cleaner cd. and your cd you are loading might not be supported by your cd rom, a different code could also one reason.

We can't get the factory 6 disc cd player to load more than 1 disc. What is the sequence for loading additional discs?


The following is the owner's manual for your 2004 Dodge Neon:

http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html?year=2004&nameplate=Neon

P.99 describes how to load discs:

1. Select and press any numbered button without an illuminated light above it.
2. Insert the CD while the light above the chosen button is flashing and the two lights on either side of the slot are illuminated.
3. Upon insertion, the CD will begin to play, and both the button light and the lights in the corner of the loading slot will illuminate.
4. Repeat the process for loading any additional CDs. The CD playe rwill stop while additional CDs are loaded.

Playing Discs
The radio will show the CD number, the CD track number, and the Track Time Elapsed while the radio is in the CD mode. IF more than one CD is loaded in the changer, the changer will automatically play the next disc after playing the last track of the current disc.

Wow, that's a lot of typing.
I didn't know the 2004 Dodge Neon had such a nice changer.
Good luck.

Screen says loading.Then says (no disc)


There are a lot of reasons why that could happen. Sometimes when a DVD player needs to be cleaned it won't read a disk.Sometimes when you try to play a NTSC disk on a PAL DVD player or visa versa it won't play. Region coding could be another issue. And sometime home burned DVDs won't play in certain players.

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more

Kenwood RXD25 CD player intermitent??


Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further

DVD tray will not open


I had the same problem - unplug first- it is easy to undo all 6 small screws - open it up -plug in and then you can give it a little help to open it. It worked for me, BUT now it will open and close but not play the dvd.

Will not play anything.


There is a rubber belt inside the loading mechanism, you should replace it by the new one. Cleaning the optical unit can be of great help also. If you need more info, please advice.
