Hi norberty

When you load a disk, do you hear a faint screaching sound, or the disc turn a tiny bit, but wont sart to spin? If that is what happens, then the spindle motor is lazy. You will need to replace it. Sometimes, you can get the motor to work again, by squirting some crc2-26 lubricant spray into the motor(through the bottom) Be careful not to use too much. Try this, if it doesnt sort it out, let me know here before you rate the solution, We can go further

I have a subaru legacy b4 2001 and it keeps reading disc error when I insert a compact disc in to the player. What could be causing it?

if your cd is an original and its in good working condition.
try a cleaning kit the laser might be dirty.
after that you might need to replace the unit. I have had a few of the single disc players go bad and I found a replacement at the wrecking yard
try this link to locate a replacement cd player

How do you replace a pioneer cdj 500s laser pickup correctly. Please give as much detail as possible as i have replaced one but its not reading the disc properly

Unfortuneately you should have replaced the whole laser pickup assembly, they come pre-aligned eliminating special test equpment that would be required when single part replacements are done.

The laser diode is usually the first component to fail in optical disc players.
If you can, open the casing to expose the CD mechanism.
Point a cell-phone camera at the laser lens, which hides under a flat bridge.
Without a disc inserted, press play or eject / load the CD tray.
Via the camera, you should see the laser diode briefly flash as it tries to read data from where disc should be.
No flash means IR laser diode has probably burnt out.
Don't stare directly into laser beam for long periods with the ***** eye - rather use the camera as an interface.
The beam's visual color is red, but the CDS sensor of a digital camera sees the IR radiation as white on mobile's screen.

Laser disc player produces b&w only lately? pioneer cld-d504

Ooops, in my efforts to find laser disc INFO I ended up in a completely irrelevant category; because there no longer exists a Laser Disc category. So I shall abandon the laser disc player as technologically obsolete (there goes still another species of dinosaur off to the fossil beds) and give up on seeing those movies in color.
