    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 wont play

You may have to remove the stereo from the dash, take it apart and remove the CD manually. If the CD still doesnt play with only 1 inserted, it may have damage to the laser. Happened many times to me.....

Not having the box should not matter - if your daughter still has the proof of purchase you will still be able to return it under warranty.

If it is to be exchanged it can be transferred into the new box for return and if it is to be repaired under warranty an OE box won't be needed.
Before you return the item you should re-read the instructions to ensure you are doing everything right...

Flash Games Don't play?

If you reformatted from Windows Media Player on the PC you need to reformat again using the "Format" command on the Clix player itself under "Settings" "Advanced".  I am also assuming you already tried to press the reset button on the player.  If you have already done these two actions someone else will need to suggest a solution.
