Question about Cambridge Audio 740C CD Player

1 Answer

I have an 840 CD (which I didn't see listed). The problem is that some days the player gives me the message "no play". The problem does not seem to be the quality of the CD. I have tried various CDs, new and old, and sometimes the player will read and reproduce them without any problem.

Hello
Your CD player have Laser Unit problem I thinks. It may be due to low emission of the laser diode, or due to accumulation of dust on its lens. Open the CD player, and gently clean it with a soft flannel type cloth, very smoothly, and carefully. In most cases this will solve the problem. Never use any liquids to wipe it. If this does not help, replacing the laser assembly with its base mechanism is the only remedy.

Panasonic CD player gives "no disc" message with disc inside.


There could be several reasons why it would do this. Try very carefully cleaning the lens on the later if its dirty or has finger prints. Beyond that there isn't much you can do.

Seven Kingdoms 2 "Single Player" missing.


you need to re mount the image of the game to play it - the game was originally designed to allow any one to play multiplayer without the cd and play the full game with the cd so you could play your friends (i used to back in the day...)

My unit is a DVP3140, purchased 2006 or 2007. As soon as I got it, I changed the code to region 0 so that I could play the DVDs I bought when I lived in Italy. It worked great for about 3.5 years of...


By changing to Region 0 you've changed the Laser control and subsequently the Laser is failing earlier than it would have done under normal operation.

The only solution would be to replace the Laser which is not normally cost effective and often unavailable anyway.

CDs may still play for a period of time as these require less power as there isn't as much information to read as a DVD.

When I insert a DVD disc I get the message "cannot read disc". The DVD player will play an audio CD but not the video. DVD player is a JVC Model #XV-N320.


Hi,

Good day. The message your getting only tells you that the Dvd your trying to play have a lot of scratches already that makes it unreadable for your dvd player. You can try to wipe the dvd first then try it again. If it doesn't work then that means the dvd unusable. Hope this information help a bit in resolving your question. Thanks for using fixya and have a great day
