SOURCE: My Sony cd player spins but won't play. Cleaned

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

SOURCE: Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.

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

SOURCE: I have a Sony Mini

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

All of a sudden our Bose player makes clicking noises when pressing the start button, and music does not play. What should I do?


My guess is the player is getting old and needs servicing. The clicking could be a bad laser or the power supply feed line that powers the laser/optical pickup assembly.

its possible that the lens of the laser has collected dust over time but its quiet old so i guess the optical pick up is worn out, replacing would help

On loading a cd in to my C 541 it seems to freeze, indicates 'no disc' and makes a clicking/whirring sound. Will not play anything at that point. This happens with genuine, bought CDs


Hi,

Seems that your player is looking for the index on your CD.
You can try to clean the laser carefully.
If your not familiar to do that, ask somebody.

Some dvd's won't play.


When you get a whirring sound, some click and disk not engaging, that is because lens cannot read the inital track on the CD/DVD.

This is either because disks are scratched , dirty or ruined by light and heath, or because the lens is dirty.

Try using a lens cleaner like the ones here.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart and the lens cleaned with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol.

NAD C541i CD Player plays but the sound cuts out for an instant every 10-20 secs. It eventually goes away, but it is annoying when you first play a disc. Any help appreciated.


hi, i've had a few nad C541i's and not so long since the sound on one of them cut out for milliseconds and on some occasions the sound would make the noise very much like a severely scratched vinyl record, i thought it was a faulty laser so i tried another KSS-213C laser out of a scrap kenwood and the fault persisted. to cut a long story short, i took the main PCB out and there were various dry joints. once these were resoldered i was blessed with a fully functioning player. hope this helps?

It is the laser, If the cd mech is in the top of this one you may just need to clean the lens manually. Cleaning discs are not all that reliable. You can do this by taking the top off and looking at the area where the disc gets clamped to play. The laser has the small glass lens. That is the part you need to clean. Take a Q-tip and wet it very lightly with some windex or some alcohol. Make it so that the Q-tip is just barely wet. Then just lightly rub the lens without pushing on it hard at all. Just nice and easy over the glass lens. Then dyr it off with the dry end just like you did with the wet end. That's it. close it back up again and turn it on and see if it plays. If it still does not play you need a new laser. No other fix for it.

Downloading music from internet to an MP3 player


I guess Sanyo means that have an input jack (line in or aux) where you can connect your mp3 player (after you've downloaded music into it), then hear it on your hi-fi.

Just make sure you connect either the line out or the earphone jack from your mp3 player to the aux or line-in on your hi-fi, then set the hi-fi to play aux or line-in.
