    It's a Samsung MM-C8DAB. I'm not sure if I can get to that bit of the CD player as it's a drawer one.

    thank you for helping!

The "no disc" error message indicates that the unit failed to read the disc. There can be a number of reasons for this. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Many times that cleaning will resolve the problem. If not, please supply the make and model of the unit and I'll provide additional options.

It sounds like the disc isn't getting pushed down to below the little springs on the spindle, can you see the disc spinning at all, I would have a look at the tiny springs and try placing a disc on it by hand and see if there are any problems trying to lock it in place. you will have to take the cover off in order to get at this. Be careful not to touch metal components.

Also does it make any sound while the disc is slipping


thanks

Kenwood hi fi componenet system no play error for dvd-r disc


Is it a DVD-R or DVD+R disc?

comment says -R just wanted to clarify, alot of players have trouble playing the -R discs. If you have your booklet for system, it should say in there otherwise they usually put a little sticker label, by the DVD tray with what file formats and discs it will play.

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail


That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.

Hello,

the fault is from the lens. The lens is weak such that a lens cleaner cannot revive it to its former state.

If the player is still under warranty, it would be better for you to return it.

But if its not under warranty, then you will have to change the lens completely, to a brand new one. By so doing, the player will play all discs.

You need a more active lens for your player to play all discs.

Good luck.

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

It is the laser, If the cd mech is in the top of this one you may just need to clean the lens manually. Cleaning discs are not all that reliable. You can do this by taking the top off and looking at the area where the disc gets clamped to play. The laser has the small glass lens. That is the part you need to clean. Take a Q-tip and wet it very lightly with some windex or some alcohol. Make it so that the Q-tip is just barely wet. Then just lightly rub the lens without pushing on it hard at all. Just nice and easy over the glass lens. Then dyr it off with the dry end just like you did with the wet end. That's it. close it back up again and turn it on and see if it plays. If it still does not play you need a new laser. No other fix for it.

Kenwood RXD25 CD player intermitent??


Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further
