Question about Stanton C314 Tabletop CD and Mp3 Player
You need a new laser or laser mechanism. You can order one online no problem. The part number is: Sony KSS 213Q. make sure there is a Q at the end of it because sony makes a lot of different laser types and the one inside the Stanton C.324 is the Q. Yes the C.324 has Sony guts. You might also want to look into ordering a RF Signal Processor Chip. the part number is: CXA 2581N. Once again make sure the part number ends with a N. This part you might have a little more trouble finding online but it is possible. The laser mechanism you can find on Ebay for about 20$ to 30$ and if you order it from stanton magnetics it will run you about 200$. The signal processor I bought the other day from a Sony parts Dealer in my home town for 20$. Im having an Electronics Repair place do it for very cheap. If you send your stanton c.324 to stanton magnetics you will end up paying more than the turntable is worth brand new unless you have valid warranty still on it.
Hope I could help you with the problem. Cheers.

I have 2 of these decks and on one of them the cd sticks and I get read error as described. It's not the laser as most people point out, not always anyway. I find that when I put the cd in and it starts making the buzzing sound, I give the unit a couple of taps /knocks on the side. The cd goes in no problem. I do the same when I eject the cd.
