Re bad disc message. the disc is stuck inside the unit. Initializes, cannot eject disc, then gives a 'bad disc' message.


Hi. I would contact Arcam directly for this - there may be a reset action you could perform or they could diagnose the fault further.

When I slot a mini-disk into my Sharp mini-disk player, it always comes up with a Toc error and switch itself off.


Try another mini-disc, if the disc is working fine, then there is a problem in the reader. You might have to replace it.

This is a typical problem when the laser " eye" gets dust on it, unplug the unit and you can try to remove cover and spray the optical pickup "eye' with canned compressed air or other type of optical cleaner found at say like radio shacks, I have solved many disc reading errors with this method

We have the RCA RS2767i Home Stereo with 5-disc changer and ipod dock. The CD Tray won't eject or shuffle...everything else works fine. It seems the disc tray isn't responding to anything. We read in the...


Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.

Im downloading songs on my cd , they work good when i play them on the computer,, but i want the songs for my car and my dvd in my car isnt taking it... what can i do ,,, change the format is what...


assuming your car dvd can first of all handle copied discs.. can it read mp3 files? (which is what you likely have the songs as) if the player can read copied discs but not mp3 files then you need to 'burn' the mp3's after converting them to wav files (must be at least 44.000 quality to be recognised as music tracks) the good news is most disc authoring programs will do this conversion for you IMPORTANT dont forget to finalize or 'close' the disc after recording it or it wont work

About 90 % of the time when i put a disc in to play on my logik stereo... it say;s reading for a little while and then disc err.... can you please help ?!? Thank you


The unit can recognize that a disc is present but is having difficulty reading the table of contents (TOC). A simple cleaning using a cotton swab and alcohol of the lens will often fix this problem. Try that and update this if you still are having problems.

My ancient Sharp CD - BA150 bookshelf stereo 3-disc CD player has suddenly stopped working. Even with 3 discs in tray, player won't recognize they're there and reads" NO DISCS" on LCD display....


I have repaired a lot of these exact Sharp stereo's and can say with certainty that you have a bad laser pick-up. The only cure for your problem is to have the pick-up replaced. It says no disc because that part is bad and can not read the disc, so it thinks there is no disc.

A repair for this would cost in the area of $125 to $150 depending on the rates of the service center you take it to.

This should give you the information you need to determain if it is worth fixing to you.

Sorry it is not something you could fix easy, but that is just the nature of these types of stereo's. That part, the laser pick-up, is a very expensive part. I have no idea why they charge so much for it, but it is killing the repair centers making so many of these too costly to fix.

I hope this helps, let me know if you require any further help.

True HD - biggest secret


Are you playing a TrueHD format disc? Just like DTS 5.1 or any other format if your disc isnt coded in TRUEHD then your not going to get it. DTS or other formats cannot be "converted" to TrueHD like the video portion of a standard def disc. At this point there arent alot of TrueHD discs out but be paitent, this may change. Or not, due to the fact there are other "lossless" formats that may be more widely adopted. Sort of like DTS and THX were when DVD first came out. Hope this helps.
