Will not read CD's

My stereo will not read a CD. The owner's manual does not list this problem in the 'troubleshooting' section. HELP!!!

    The unit is only 2 years old, and all I ever put in it are factory recorded CD's- no homemade ones. It has 5 CD's that 'stack' one on top of another. I bought a CD cleaner and it won't read that either! I am sure that the lens probably just has dust on it, but I don't know how to clean it.

    Also, the day it quit working, I opened the door to change CD's, and when I pressed the 'close' button, it wouldn't close. I had to press the button a few times so it would finally close, and it hasn't worked since. So I thought that it might be a mechanical problem.

    I bought this stereo at Walmart in Dec, 2005.

    Hope this helps.

    It won't any type of CD? Even factory recorded ones? Have you tried using a CD cleaner? Sometimes the lens/prism becomes dirty & occasionally needs to be cleaned. You can find the cleaners @ electronics stores like Best Buy, Circuit City & retailers like Wal-mart, Target & the like. By the way how old is this unit?

My stereo won't read the disks inserted in my CD player


All you can do is get a lens cleaner and hope that clears it up, otherwise you are looking at what might be an expensive replacement of the CD/lens/laser unit.

there is a problem with the stereo firmware. It is not anything you are doing wrong. It is a common problem with all Aiwa's. If you are handy with electronical repair, you can test and replace the bad resistors. Otherwise, it will have to be taken in for diagnostic testing.

No Disc error, won't read any CD


rca does not sell just the laser it sells the base assy. it consistos of the laser & the spindle motor on the metal base. no circuit boards, thoes you will need to remove off of the old one. the list price from rca is $136.10 CDN. replacing the part is not too hard, but take a little time. good luck.
