Goodmans micro 1104s dab: inserting cd into player and closing lid, display reads 'no disc', with lid open and lid interlock overridden - same display info. with the slightest of finger pressure on disc surface and reactuating lid interlock disc is read and displays track info. then pressing play without touching disc cd fails to play track 1, but with minimum pressure on disc, pressing play, cd will play 1st track. in addition if the magnet from inside the lid is removed and placed on the disc (with the lid still open) fault still occurs. Q: why and can it be fixed??

Re: faulty goodmans 1104s dab player
In the lid should be a mgnetic plate that holds the disc to the motor spindle (much like slight pressure would). Inspect it to make sure it's free moving and seating all the way when the lid is closed. I had one unit where the spindle on the motor shaft had slid down slightly causing the magnetic plate to not seat down all the way. Also, if the magnetic plate is removable, try placing it on the disc with the lid open and bypassed and see what happens.

It is possible the laser or other part of the CD player is faulty.These can stop working for no apparent reason at any time...
I had a Sony system that also refused to read the cleaning disc. I had experienced laser failure twice before on other equipment and hoped it hadn't happened again as the cost would be disproportionate. This also couldn't be accessed for manual cleaning and so I used a compressed airline and blew through every orifice with the drawer open and drawer closed.
I was lucky and the CD player was again able to read a disc again though a few months later it stopped working again for good. The repair cost would have been half as much again as a new system but I had the remarkable stroke of luck to find someone had put an identical model out for the garbage and so I changed the internals and have continued to enjoy my CD for the last few years, though it is again becoming temperamental.
By not engaged i'm assuming you mean that the disc draw closes then opens again almost immediatley. This would indicate that the disc draw limit switch is not being activated by the draw or the switch has failed.
This is usualy a small sub-miniature micro switch activated by the draw itself, Sometimes a very light spray of switch cleaner into the micro switch will effect a cure. The switch gets a fairly hard life so it is more advisable to replace the switch.
try some more different disc.also check out the disc in another player.if the disc are working in another player that means the disc are proper but the lens in the player is either got faulty or dust is got collected on the lens glass.get the lens cleaning cd from the local electronics computer shop and insert in the player and try inserting the cd if same error that means the lens is got faulty and needs replacement.
I have the same problem. When I insert a disk, my NAD T 550 DVD player displays 'No Disc'. It started with new disks while still reading older disks, but at some time it stopped recognizing any disk. Did you receive any suggestion yet or has anyone a suggestion?
the tray should have a micro switch to touch when its closed. maybe it needs some fine adjustment. if it doesnt say closed then the laser drive wont start. or maybe the magnetic clamp hasnt come down onto the disc properly
Press case lid where it attaches to player. If this makes unit react you have a defective lid switch. You can probably put some weight over it to hold lid down and it will operate. Otherwise switch must be repaired
