Question about Philips AZ1300 CD Boombox

1 Answer

Constant 'Err' and 'No Cd'

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?

    I used a combination of solutions #1 and #2. It seems to working better than when I first bought it. I got a lense wipe that had alcohol on it and cleaned the lense meticulously and the entire boombox to remove all dust. I didn't know the lens needed to be relubed with alcohol or anything like that. I was just cleaning it with a damp towel. Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate it.

    ah okay, it really does not matter anymore since it functions properly now. It must have been the lens was smeared/dirty. Thanks for everything.

    My Monsoon CD player in my VW golf reads "Error" when a CD is put in and immediately spits it back out.

Hi,

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.

    Hi again,

    Am glad to be of assistance and appreciate the rating.

    My apologies for giving you the impression that the lens need to be re-lubed. It is the carriage where the lens sits on that needs to be re-lubed as well as the shafting that guides it. Please refer to the image below.

    Cheers.

Cd player error


so is this a stock RAD/cd?
stock JBL 6 disk player in dash>? or? what? name and model #
mp3 and wma format. but not DVD
or
JBL premium 4-disc in-dash CD changer
io the single disc player, 3 kinds sold. new.

and now comes the big question.
TELLS where you got the disk, or name it, or tell how it was made if home made. we dont know that.

is said CD a CDDA? or not. (always try CDDA first)
is CD a real music disc. from a real store, CDDA, is that.
or CDR, or DVDr, or CDRW, or other record-able media
is music MP3? files.
see, the old units dont play modern media.

try 2 real discs, not scratched.
do they play?
one other way, is to name the radio, brand, like JBL then get the
p/n off it. (hard) then look up the product data sheet on it,
bingo, what it can and can not do is there.

but this does it all, mostly
does what yours will not do.

Err message on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 10 CD changer


I had a similar problem which responded to the use of a CD cleaner disc to clean the laser lens reading the CD. The "err" messages stopped and the changer started to work as it had before. Perhaps this will correct your problem too.

CD ERR 1


Have a 2005 Freelander and the battery died. When I re-charged the battery, the CD changer had a CD ERR 1 message. Could not eject or load a CD and the radio worked. I turned off the radio and pulled off the cover on top of the CD changer. I removed the two screws that hold the frame around the CD changer. I turned the CD back on and the CD went through a test on each CD. I know this solution might not work for everyone, but it worked for me

Denon udcm m7 cd player often reads ERR on play and eject


Try cleaning the laser first. Take care, because it is delicate.

Some instructions of how to clean a CD laser:
http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-CD-Player

If the cleaning does not fix the fault, it is possible that the laser is weak, or there are some problems in the electronics in the CD player. This is not something you will be able to service yourself, unless you are properly trained, have experience, and have the proper setup to perform CD player servicing.

In most cases these CD players are not cost effective to service. You can contact the orignal manufacture for details or any recomendations.
