    I'm trying to play an audio CD. The Insignia NS-B2114 boombox at first did not see the CD. After several tries with several CDs, it saw it, played it for a bit, cut out at times, then quit. Now, it sees the CD but wont play it at all. Any suggestions?

    The cd player won't read any discs. I have tried to clean the lens and still nothing even though the discs do spin. After about 2 minutes of spinning, it stops and an "E" appears on the screen.

    It is a Memorex MP 3227 and the problem is with any type of Audio CD. I have tried several and they all do the same thing.

    I don't think it matters which model it is because I am having the same problem with my sanyo boombox. It's a three-disc changer and even with all three cd spaces filled with regular, store-bought audio cds, it spins and says there is no disc.

I think the solution here is to forget the modern Boombox or any other portable radio/cd/cassette player of this kind. I live in Almeria Spain and have bought a Spanish radiio/cd/cassette recorder and am having exactly the same problems as you are all having above. To record certain tracks I had to play some of the discs first on my main music centre then they would play on my portable. How daft is that? I would finally get it going and then halfway through the recording or playing it would stop dead and then after a bit start off again. The CD's all played perfectly on the Music Centre so no fault there.. All in all it probably took longer to get a good recording than it did from the very first cd recorder that was ever invented. Another option was to have a clean damp cloth handy to wipe away the slightest of marks on the cd's all the time the box was in use. Who wants to have that bother every time they want to use the basic functions it was designed for? To be honest I thought it was just because it was a cheap Spanish unit but now it seems it is a general fault with this type of audio equipment. I hope someone somewhere comes up with the answer for all and sundry.

Maybe you should clean the cd area where it is put with a cloth and just so you know, mp3 cds don't work, if your daughter's cds are mp3 cds

    I used a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Worked right away. A damp cloth didn't work.

Turn on the cd player(boombox) open the disc tray and press cd/ random, put the cd into the disc tray and close it, now press play and it should play your cd! :)

Cd player on boom box

Hi I don't have a boom box, but i do know a little bit about CD players, and i think first the CD you are putting into the player as to be a proper bought CD, you know official CD, if you have done that, and still have the same problem, then its because the laser light is faulty, which basically means the CD player needs replacing.
