Philips FWM575 (3)CD player - Reading Disc - not playing

Our Philips unit stopped playing any of the 3 discs just a month after warranty. Unplug and restart still results in nothing. There has to be a simple solution ?

    This is the second unit doing the same thing three weeks apart. The CD player is constantly READING CD but never finds it to start playing.

    Same problem. Started almost immediately after bringing it home... should've returned it.

Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one

You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

SOURCE: Can I play music from my mac to my philips mcm530

I have the same issue. To my knowledge there is no Mac support for the MCM530. We use the Aux and plug it in to the headphone jacks of our Mac (or PC). The sound quality is excellent and it will play anything your computer will play.

It is likely worn drive belts. There are 2 within this hi-fi. I replaced my belts with elastic bands. No issues so far.
1) Remove power and unplug unit
2) Remove 4 x lid screws and lid
3) Remove both side panels.
4) Remove silver plate from shielding cd drive
5) Replace belts with 25mm diameter bands
6) Reverse the strip down.
New belts are $6 each on e-bay

Panasonic CD player model #SC-EN7: CD will not play, keeps saying "reading disc", but the disc does not spin, the transverse deck has been replaced with no change in status.


There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play


RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.
