Open it up and get a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and gently run the lens of the cd player, those cleaning disks dont really work that great. you would be surprised how much dirt gets in there. but yea unplug it, take the screws out that hold the cover on, and you should be able to see the lazer lens and just gently rub it in one direction with a q-tip with alcohol. blow a little air after to make sure its dry and theres no lint from the q-tip. hope this helps, if not send me a message at btlee26@hotmail.com and tell me what model number and brand.

Cd player won't play cd's


Have you tried a cleaning CD? or just a can of compressed air (Radio Shack) and blow the dirt and dust out? Also, try cleaning the underside of the CD with an eyeglass cleaning cloth, GENTLY, using a circular motion around the disc.

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

If the no disc comes even without a disc in the player you must check and see if there is a mechanical fault specially in the loading section that seems to trigger the CD mode to work.

Also check to see the main motor as it will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Keeps on pausing when playing cds tried using cd cleaner cd


It does not necessarily mean that the lens of the player might be dirty when you experience this kind of problems. It may be as a result of a weak lens or damaged disc.
You can try getting a disc with a clean face and try to see if it does the same thing. Also, make sure that you use a soft piece of cloth to clean the face of the disc before playing. Try to do this as gently as possible as it would help to remove some amount of hitches.
Also, the lens of the player might be weak and require replacement. In this case, no matter how you use the cd cleaner, it is not going to help unless you replace the lens.
Lastly, the recording of the disc might be bad and may require you to purchase another one. Sometimes, some discs have bad recordings and cannot play without hitches. This is a fault that comes from the production and not from your disc or player.
The best way to avoid these hitches are by doing the following.
1. Keep your discs in a clean and dust free environment.
2. Make sure you always keep the player closed so as to protect the lens from dust.
3. Ensure that you play disc with clean surface as scratched surface could result in a damaged lens.

Hello,

the fault is from the lens. The lens is weak such that a lens cleaner cannot revive it to its former state.

If the player is still under warranty, it would be better for you to return it.

But if its not under warranty, then you will have to change the lens completely, to a brand new one. By so doing, the player will play all discs.

You need a more active lens for your player to play all discs.

Good luck.

CD player won't work


Firstly is it burnt or factory cd? Most factory cd players won't play a burnt disk.
If you have a store-made cd and it is not reading that, then the lens inside the player is dirty and needs to be blown out with a can of "airduster"

Peugeot 406 cd player works when ignition is on but when engine is started cd player wont work. Radio is fine.


Just bought 2001 peugeot 406.The radio worked perfect but CD player not reading disk or operating.That was until I realised that the CD for driving safety will not allow you to put CD into it while driving or engine running.Switched off engine then switched it to 1st batt light position & CD worked perfectly.But when I then switched key off & then started it was back to not operating.I then realised that the CD player for safety will not operate when engine is running unless you let the CD start operating first pre engine fire then wait a little more time before starting .Now it should work properly though it will not allow even the passenger to change a disk while being driven. On disk change you have to go through the same start proceedure.Hope this will get your CD working.Sherlock ??
