Be careful. The unit will attempt to verify that a disc is present BEFORE it tries to spinb the disk. If the optics are defective, this can happen. First try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Try to play a clean disc. If it fails to play or read the TOC, then the optics need to be replaced.

Please keep us posted,

    If cleaning the lens has no effect, then either the optics are bad or they are out of alignment. In either case, prefessional help is required.

I had bought a regular cd from hmv with music on it & when i put the cd in the cd player,it wont play & reads NO DISC also does not reads the amount of music on the cd,why does it give me this...


1. Check that the disc is free of scratches and dirt or dust. If the disk is dusty, use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe the disk gently, using straight strokes from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
2. Make sure that you are inserting the disk with the plain, reflective side down.
2. Try listening to another CD (not burned) that you have purchased. If the other cd is giving you the same error message, return the cd player to the store, because it is defective.
3. Ensure that the disc you are using is not a DVD disc. It is easy to confuse the two.
Hope that helps! Good Luck!

Hello My SL-MC7 gives a error message No Disk even the tray is full with disks. The disks are taken out to the player and put back again without being played Kind regards Rene


Well the first thing to try is a cd lense cleaner. You may have a build up of prticles and oil on the lense causing it not to read. Secondly, make sure you try a "Shop Purchased" cd to make sure it's not haveing problems reading "cdrs" (home made cds).
If after both of these methods you still have the same problem, it's down to the laser. Could be a series of things from tracking, focussing or the laser has died altogether. Unles your experienced with electronics in a big ay and have test meters and an oscilloscope, you need to decide how much you want to keep this CD player as a new one could be cheaper than a repair.

My 2002 Chev. 1/2 ton Silverdo's CD player will not play. It takes disk and everything seems to work but no music. I hadn't used it in many months so unknown as to when it boke. Any suggestions? If you...


If you turn the disc upside down and it says no disc, your player is reading the disc just fine. If it seems like its playing (track timer is counting as song plays), then I would guess its an audio problem. Disconnected harness in the back for the speakers or if you have a seperate amplifier (aftermarket or factory), it could be disconnected or broke.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

No disk


Try cleaning the lens directly by carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this with your results.

I know it's late but i happen to have received the same unit for free, and it had the same problem. The reason for the message is that the laser weakens over time and cannot reach the CD anymore. If you try holding a disc directly above the lens, to the back of the spindle, you will see the motor starting to spin. That means the laser is still working but too weak to reach to the height of the spindle. The solution is simple. Take the drive unit out and remove the three screws on the board at the back of the drive. Carefully lift that board, there is a flex cable connected to it you don't want to break. You will see a little variable resistor with three pins. Measure the single pin against both of the other two. One should read 3.something kOhms, the other 1.something. Mine read 1.35. Using a small screwdriver turn the resistor to the right until the side that read 1.35 reads something around 700 ohms. I left mine at 740 and it works fine. Put the drive back together and load a disc. It should now work again. Don't set it any lower than 400 or you will damage the laser. If it doesn't work with 800-400, the laser is probably damaged and the drive needs to be replaced entirely, which is not worth it.
