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.

Tascam 160 always read no disc


The reason it reads no disc, is because the Optical Pickup(laser) is worn out of specifications. If the pickup cannot read the TOC(table of contents) it thinks there is no disc in the drawer. Your will require a new pickup. If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Tascam(I used to be a factory service center), please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com, and contact me there. Thank you.

Cd-a700 laser pickup


I don't think they are available anymore. You could get the definite answer by contacting New Jersey Factory Service in Emerson NJ. They work on that stuff all the time. The guy's name is Russ.

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.

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.

Tascam cd-rw750 - while recording from another CD player (using digital coax connection), machine records for some time and then just "jumps out of record mode" and goes back to the beginning like nothing...


1. First problem: "like nothing is recorded". IS something recorded or has it been left in Pause Mode so long (instead of Recording) that it just got impatient and time out?

2. Get yourself a couple of CD-RW Digital Audio discs to play with until you're past this learning curve/problem scenario. That way you can always erase them and start over without having to discard the disc.

3. Dropouts on playback. Are they repeatable - always at the same place, even on different CD players? If so, the data is bad on the disc. If not, the data is probably marginal.

4. If you have a DVD player, try to play the failed recordings in it. Some DVD players can play back unfinalized CDR's. You may be able to recover the data by copying it back to the CD Recorder from the DVD player. Just be advised that an unfinalized CD-RW may not have 'silence' following the last recorded track due to old data remaining from a previous session, so be ready to pause or stop the recorder when the last track finishes.

5. "Scratches near the outside of the CD". Were these NOT present prior to entering the CD Recorder? Do they seem to coincide with about where the recording may have failed?

6. 20 vs 19 tracks: Is this a constant problem or only when there is a failure during CD creation? If the latter, it would make sense as the last track in isn't technically completed.

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.

The CD tray won't stay shut - Tascam CD-AD500


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you; Regards; VOTIT DONT FORGET TO RATE;

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs


Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)

*or*

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:

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.
