Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi-fi cd player makes a whirring sound when trying to play cd . I'm guessing that the laser is trying to move but can't. Any home fix for this?

Those CD cleaners rarely work. They are nothing but small brushes on a plastic CD. Unless the problem is loose dust, they won't work. Try carefully opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, post the model number and I'll provide the replacement optics part number and cost. Some units have replacement optics that cost less than $15. Dan

I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help

It is not possible to cheaply fix the problem, that is for sure. It is mechanical failure on the part of the mechanism. Have you tried unplugging it for a good 10 minutes, then replugging it in? As soon as you plug it back in immediately try to eject the cds. If this does not do it you will be forced to basically break open the cd player to get them out :(.
I'm so sorry about the bad news there, hopefully a "reboot" will at least let you eject them out of there
