It may be a dirty lens or a seized spin motor. If you can hear the disc spinning, then it's likely the lens.
If you feel confident in opening it up (unless it's under warranty), then you just have to find the disc drawer and observe it with a disc in it (since you don't need a laser burning your eyes out, BE VERY CAREFUL). If you can see the laser's moving around on its track and the disc is spinning, then it's likely a dirty lens.
To clean a dirty lens, you'll need rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. Dab a little bit of alcohol onto the Q-tip, wiping it a little until it's just barely damp. Gently rub that against the lens, being careful to not break the mountings it rides on. When you think you've covered the whole surface, use the dry end to soak up any excess and then try running that disc again.
If this still doesn't work, then your lens might be fried altogether. In this case, either find an identical laser (or the entire drawer and motors and all) or scrap it.
If it's under warranty/exchange policy, then just go that route instead.

Vizio vbr133 player . player starts to load disk and then reads no disk. tryed with different disk still reads no disk. error code HON7E


I was getting the same error and I could not get regular dvd or blu ray discs to play either. I dug out my old cd player lens cleaner and put it in and it started playing. I let it clean the lens for a couple minutes and now it is playing my movies again.

I had bought a regular cd from hmv with music on it & when i put the cd in the cd player,it wont play & reads NO DISC also does not reads the amount of music on the cd,why does it give me this...


1. Check that the disc is free of scratches and dirt or dust. If the disk is dusty, use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe the disk gently, using straight strokes from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
2. Make sure that you are inserting the disk with the plain, reflective side down.
2. Try listening to another CD (not burned) that you have purchased. If the other cd is giving you the same error message, return the cd player to the store, because it is defective.
3. Ensure that the disc you are using is not a DVD disc. It is easy to confuse the two.
Hope that helps! Good Luck!

What do you do when the radio says cd failure


CD Failure is what happens when a disk is not burned correctly and trying to play in a Audio CD Player. Or you have a Mass production disk that has some scratched near the inner circle of it. What this means is that the CD player is unable to read the CD you are trying to listen to. This can also happen when the CD player is Dirty on the Lazar Eye that reads the Disk. There is kits at Wal-Mart, Target, and Bestbuy that will clean the Lazar of the CD player. But try a few other CD to see if the issues still happens if it does then might be a the Lazar Eye that is dirty.

My staton cd play reads no disk


try using a cleaning disk, but ive found that those dont work that well, find the laser lens "near the motor that spins the cd" and use a micro fiber cloth, or eyeglasses cleaning cloth and gently wipe the lens in one direction, you can use rubbing alcohol on the cloth if you like, just blow on the lens to make sure its complely dry. if that does not work, then the laser may be burnt out.

Just bought an Ematic 1.5%22 Color 4GB MP3/4 Video Player and the driver disk it came with about 3'' wide much smaller than a std cd so i cant use it. where can i get the driver and anything else to make...


You should be able to use the small diameter disk. The disk can be inserted in the CD/DVD drive just like a normal size CD/DVD disk, it locks onto the spindle on the laptop's CD/DVD drive. The laser reads from the center of the disk.
