Question about Philips AZ1300 CD Boombox
That is what I keeping getting when I put in a CD. Even with a real music CD, it still gives me an error message. It rarely plays CDs anymore. My warranty expired and i don't think the lens is broken. It is spinning when i open it, which indicates to me that everything should be fine. I really have no idea why it is not working. I haven't dropped it or anything. It's been like this for a while now, but recently it just does not seem to play anything anymore. I can't get good reception here in my room, so i can't listen to the radio so all that's left is the CD player. If that does not work maybe i should just throw the Boombox out and get a new one. What should i do and is there a problem?
Your post/description could be indicative of just that, your unit can no longer read the disc.
This could be brought about by:
1. dirty, dusty, smeared optical lens or the laser eye;
2. stuck lens carriage;
3. defective laser eye.
#1 could be corrected with the use of a CD cleaner commonly available at computer stores/shoppes. Alternately, you can use a fine, clean small brush;
#2 if visible on top could be cleaned with cotton buds and household alcohol. You need to re-lube when it has dried up;
Additionally, a can of compressed air would also be of help in removing any dust or foreign materials inside the disc mechanism.
#3 would require the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
