The cd player doesn't play


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

A put in a cd and after about 40 seconds it stops playing a gives me an error signal.


Hello and good morning,

The Error it is saying, is player is dirty.
In the past what I have done and works 99 percent of the time, is I go down to like radio shack or best buy or almost any electronic supply, even stereo install stores will normally have a CD cleaning kit that comes with a fluid that you wipe on the blank CD with the applicator or towel it has in the package. What you will be doing is putting this blank CD that is designed ( with the cleaning solution) to go through your player and clean all the controls and contacts and components. You might have to run it through a few times, then when you think you are done and its is now clean, put a brand new CD or a CD that you know for sure it works, and try and play it again. 99% of the time, this will solve the problem. I hope this helps for you. Rock On!! Mike from fixya.

For the Trutech cd clock radio (cd1189) I am attempting to get it to play a particular cd track as an alarm. Is this possible, or can I only play the first track?


I think it will only play the first track.
You can "rip" the original CD and then "burn" the track you want to a blank CD as track 1. I believe this is the only way possible.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

The laser has gone weak. If you feel confident taking it apart, unplug it and look for a small potentiometer on the CD reading pickup. Turn it to the right to about 700 ohms, it should start reading again. If you don't have a multimeter to measure it then get one, a basic $10 meter will do fine.
