Question about Sharp CD-BA150 Shelf System

CD Player returns NO DISK code

A friend sent me a home recorded CD. I put it on and got teh message TOC CD. Since then, the CD player will not recognize commercially bought CDs and will not play them, returning a message NO DISC.

The system is useless and will only play Cassette tapes. How do I get it to "read" commecial CDs?

    When in doubt, restor to primitive means...



    Thinking abou this, I thought that the problem started with a home recorded disk. The TOC, I found from the Web, reffered to TABLE OF CONTENTS. A home disk might not have this. So I removed the unit from the shelf and - upsidedown, tapped the outed cover. Hit, really,hard enough to rattle things.



    The sound you might hear behind me is the Paris Swing of Django Reinhardt playing nicely in the background, on a CD in the CD player.

Had similar problem, first things first.........clean lens with isopropyl alcohol on a Q-tip. to do this, you will have to remove cover and likely the disc tray. worked for me.

NEED operators manual for ITRR-501 retro 5 in 1. lost mamual. NEED TO KNOW how to record to CD Disc. Also will it record fro records to disc and record cassett to disk. PLEASE SEND me a manual. OR a zerox...


The unit will record to CD from the turntable, cassette or the AUX port. Place a blank CD-R or CD-RW in the CD tray. (Note: CD-RW discs may not play on other CD players.) Press the Phono, Tape or Aux button to select your audio source for recording. (For Aux, you will need to connect the source device to the AUX port in the back of the ITRR-501.) Wait for the CD disc to load and check for any indicator lights (you should see the "NO TOC" and "CD" or "CD-RW" lights lit). Select your Track increment (or Auto Manual for unattended track formation).Press Record button and the up arrow to adjust the recording level.

If you are recording from an LP, put the tone arm down on the record. For all sources, press Play. Press Stop to end recording or Pause to temporarily break the recording. Press the Track Increment button to advance the track number if you are doing so.

To finalize your CD-R to make it readable on all players: after stopping the recording, press the Finalize button.

The manuals for Innovative Technology products are available here: http://www.ithomeproducts.com/support . The products are listed in alphabetical order. The direct link to the ITRR-501 manual in English is http://www.ithomeproducts.com/sites/default/files/pdf/ITRR-501.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Firstly double check that the recordable discs you have bear the label "Digital Audio" on them as per the attached picture. Secondly what happens when you go through the finialise procedure in the manual? Do you see the ?FIn--d? display when you select the finialise button? Do you see ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators blinking at the next step? Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

What does TOC read mean, the cd does not spin


TOC stands for Table of Contents. On a MiniDisc recorder or CD recorder, a Table Of Contents MUST be written before a disc is usable. On A player, a TOC must be read before the unit knows where to find the songs. Sounds like the laser is NOT reading the TOC, so you will hear nothing until that is corrected (clean lens or replace unit). Try a storebought CD, as perhaps is doesn't like your own burned CD's and most units built before 2000 will not read your own CD's that you make.

The CD changer rotates to the desired Cd...lifts the cd and then drops it back and goes on to the next..repeats then cd function shuts down


When the CD is in the loaded position, an attempt is made to determine whether or not there is a CD present. This is done by activating the laser. If there is a CD present, the laser will be reflected back and detected. Once that occurs, the CD will be spun up so that the Table of Contents (TOC) can be read from teh disk. From your description, I suspect that the system is not detecting a disk. The first step in resolving this is to clean the leans using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, the optics have likely failed and will need to be replaced. Depending upon the model number, the optics can cost between $15 and $55.

Hope this helps,

Playing a cd


Make sure the optical eye is clean, Use cotton swap. If that doesn't work and you are handy do the following.
Kurt

To start with, make sure that your CD player is suffering from the problem that this method is designed to fix. This method is designed to fix a misaligned CD read head. The common symptoms of this problem are:
1. You place a CD in the player, and it spins for a bit but never finds the list of tracks on the CD and returns some kind of error. This problem may occur regularly or intermittently.
2. CDs tend to skip frequently, even if they are clean and in good condition.
So if this sounds like your problem, then this method is for you. You should however bear the following in mind: only attempt to fix the CD player if the fault occurs frequently and is really annoying; i.e. if you are thinking of throwing the CD player away. To carry out the repair you will have to open the case. This will certainly render void any warranty the device might have, so if your player is still under warranty, don't open it. Simply return it to the retailer. Finally, for your safety and that of your equipment be sure to disconnect your CD player and remove any batteries at least a half hour before you start work. Finally, although I have had consistent success with this method, everything you do is at your own risk and is your own responsibility. I provide no guarantee of any nature regarding this method.
Your first job is to open up the case of your CD player. This will be more or less difficult depending on the type of device. If you are lucky and have a Hi-Fi separate type device then it will be pretty simple; if you have a mini or midi-system with a built in CD player this could be trickier. Fixing portable CD players (e.g. a Discman) is probably only for the uber-patient as it is likely to be very fiddly. The main thing required here is patience and a methodical approach. As you remove screws put them somewhere safe; line them up in the order in which you removed them, or make notes of what goes where. You may reach a point where you think you have taken all the screws out but you still can't get into the case. Here, patience is still the key. Check under stickers for hidden screws or clips. Try and work out where the case is held together. Use the minimum force possible at all times.
Now, assuming you have managed to get into the case successfully, and have got access to the CD player we can continue. By now you will probably be able to see the CD tray (the bit that holds the disk) and also some kind of arm which hovers over the disk when the tray is closed. There will usually be a small motor for moving the lens over the disk, and attached to this or nearby there is typically a small circuit board.
On this board, or in any case rather close to the read head there can usually be found a small potentiometer (sometimes referred to as a pot). This will usually be a small square component with a plastic disk on top, and this disk will have a slot which is designed to take a small flat head screwdriver. This is what we will be adjusting.
However, before doing this it is advisable to use an indelible marker pen (magic marker) to mark the current position of the Potentiometer, so that it can be returned to its original position if necessary. With this done then we are ready to start fixing your CD player.
This is essentially a trial and error process. You make a small adjustment to the position of the potentiometer, then try the CD player and see if it is improved. In my experience generally only small adjustments (less than plus/minus 30 degrees of rotation) are usually necessary.
Depending on how comfortable you are working with electrical devices there are different ways of going through this trial and error process. If you are unsure of yourself or particularly safety conscious then will probably want to put the case back on the CD player each time you test it because you will probably have to plug it in to do this. However, as you have probably guessed it is not necessary to put all the screws back in.

Teac lp- u200 cd player doesn't work


Sicne this is a new system, don't waste time on it. Return it for an exchange. The CD portion is not working. The reading message indicates that the unit detects a disc, but can not read it. This is usually a problem with the optical assembly or the processing board. Neither should be a problem at this time. Replace it under warranty.
