Duranbrand Hm3817DT CD player won't play

We have the CD home music system and the CD player will not play CD's. It just spins one way then reverses and spins the other way. Its not even a year old. Any suggestions? I've tried cleaning everything I can see in the unit. Tried several CD's including brand new ones.

    I have the same problem. It starts playing, stops, skips, plays then stops completely. It just spins. I tried cleaning the CD as well as the player, but it doesn't help.

Try a laser eye cleaner. It possibly may need to be dusted on the inside. Overheating can cause strange things to happen to electronics.

Gpx stereo cd won't work

The laser pickup head has failed, or the pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or there is no voltage to the motor. Chances are the whole assembly will need to be replaced, but as a rule it is cheaper to replace the stereo.

The cd player will not rotate the cd that is in the machine. Its in cd function.

Check whether the CD loads into the mechanism fully inside. If it does not spins even after loaded well into the mechanism, the sled motor of the loader mechanism to your devie is faulty, and should be replaced. OK.

Can't load a cd...just out of the box

If you cant load a CD then it either doesnt belong in that CD player or your CD is to scratched up to play.

Despite the lack of set-up instructions with this product, I finally figured out I had to remove the cardboard disc covering the guts of the machine.

My durabrand cd home music system wont come on

If you have no lights or power to the unit, check on the back of the unit to see if there is a twist and pull type knob for a fuse. If so, unplug the unit/player and take the fuse out. If it is damaged/broken/wire element burned/cracked, it will need to be replaced. Take the old fuse with you to make certain of a correct match(volt/amp/slow or fast acting)Most Radio Shack/Walmarts/Ace Hardware stores stock these type of fuses. They are very inexpensive, usually less than a $1 or $2. They are on most home entertainment equipment/t.v.s etc. to prevent some degree of lightning or power spike damage the unit.

I ripped a CD on my computer than tried to play it on the GPX it wouldn't play but the screen said "File". What does that mean and can I get it to play a ripped CD?

You have to burn a CD in "CD/Music" format. You can't burn it as a data CD. Which just sucks cuz doing it in CD format, you can only fit 15 or so songs on each CD. And I wasted a CD finding that out.
