It will not play cds, it says read then skips to the next cd until it has gone through all cds. I bought a cd cleaner, the one that looks like a cd with brushes on one side but it does not read it soooo now what can I try? Thank you jd

I had a rca system similar to this little different. It's a problem you'll find in any cd player after awhile. You'll need to replace the laser. It's quite easy google for some instructions to replace a cd laser. Look around for a laser that can read cd's and cd r and cd rw and you'll be ok. The disassembling might be a bit tuff but it's worth it. I had to replace my hifi laser and after i did sound was incredible again no skipping. Make sure when opening your system you power it on and unplug it to make sure all charge is gone wait 30 minutes or so before you go and operate.
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.
You might try running a cleaning CD in it (which cleans the lazer lens). These are available from Wal Mart and many other sources. If a cleaning doesn't get it going, then you may have a lazer that is weakening and might need to be replaced (sorry!). Hope just a good lens cleaning will do the trick.
It might be an older system that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability. Most old players can't read CD-R discs, even if they can play normal/original CDs.
You can try another media but i wont think it will help.

If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens.
Sorry i cant help you more.
