I had the same problem. I took the stereo apart and isolated the CD changer. I then gained access to the lens and using a lens cloth which came with my glasses, I wiped the lens being careful not to use too much pressure but speed. I put it all back together and doesn't give me the "no disk" message and moreover it plays great. Glad I took the time and trouble to disassemble the unit. All I can say is...that it worked for me. Don't use any other cloth other than a lense cloth though, or you will scratch the lens and it will become useless.

The problem of "no disc" is in the lense .The lense is already defected you better change it.You better go a certified service center.

The laptop burned a disc, then ejected as usual. Another disc was place in the tray, inserted as normal but this time a cd was unable to be burned because the laptop did not recognize the disc or any other...


The automatic ejection takes place when the burn process has completed successfully. Have your tried another writable CD or DVD? If your laptop is not recognizing any more writable CDs/DVDs, then the problem might be a failed CD/DVD drive. Otherwise, it is probably a bad CD or DVD.
Hope this helps.

Won't recognize cd


If it will not recognize the cd and you tried to clean the laser eye, then you should contact Tascam to find a local service center to change the transport.

All you can do is clean the lens and if that does not do it at this point Russ at New Jersey Factory Service has said they don't support that model anymore.

Cd will not eject. Keeps giving message "Now OPC" but will not do anything and will not eject cd either.


To remove a stuck CD from Tascam CC222 MKII

This solved the "Now OPC" problem



1. Unplug unit

2. Remove the top cover, (3 screws on each side and 3 on the back, lift cover).

3. Plug in unit.

4. Power on the unit to observe the drive spindle spinning clockwise, (1" disc on top of drive).

5. Turn off unit, do not unplug at this time.

6. Use a small screwdriver to prevent the drive spindle from spinning.

7. Power on the unit preventing the spin.

8. In approximately 10 seconds the display will read "Disc Error" and the CD tray will open.

9. Remove the screwdriver and the disc.

10. Turn off the unit and unplug.

11. Replace the cover.

12. Use a better quality disc.

CD player does not recognise some CDs. When placed in the drawer the deck displays "no disc" if another CD player is used the disc works fine


I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.

Replace Tascam DP-01FX/CD -- the CD R/W won't work


I don't think there is a problem with your CD writer.  You have not inserted the type of disc your write drive requires.  You must use a BLANK "AUDIO CD-R".   Check your instruction manual concerning the type of disc required.  Data CD-R's will not work in this type of drive.  if the disc has "DATA CD-R" or "700"mb or "800mb" printed on it it will not work.  audio CD-R's are not as common and are a bit more costly.   They are the only type of disc that will RECORD in your drive.  Regular audio CDs should play in your drive.  I hope this solution will work for you and I wish you every success!

Tascam CD-A500 'no disk' problem


try to listen to sound inside if the any motor is working through the disc tray. then try to open it (if you want though) then observe it.
after that if the motors are ok, try to adjust your optical lens variable risistor.
note if the optical lens is not emitting a red light your optical lens is the problem, changing it is the only solution.
