It is the laser, If the cd mech is in the top of this one you may just need to clean the lens manually. Cleaning discs are not all that reliable. You can do this by taking the top off and looking at the area where the disc gets clamped to play. The laser has the small glass lens. That is the part you need to clean. Take a Q-tip and wet it very lightly with some windex or some alcohol. Make it so that the Q-tip is just barely wet. Then just lightly rub the lens without pushing on it hard at all. Just nice and easy over the glass lens. Then dyr it off with the dry end just like you did with the wet end. That's it. close it back up again and turn it on and see if it plays. If it still does not play you need a new laser. No other fix for it.

Kenwood hi fi componenet system no play error for dvd-r disc


Is it a DVD-R or DVD+R disc?

comment says -R just wanted to clarify, alot of players have trouble playing the -R discs. If you have your booklet for system, it should say in there otherwise they usually put a little sticker label, by the DVD tray with what file formats and discs it will play.

I have a pioneer pd-f407 25-disc cdfile changer. A few days ago the changer? or disc grabber at the back quit picking up the CDs . So now when I try to play a CD it says "NO DISC AVAILABLE" even...


The large changers after a few years start to show ware and tare, the gears become worn and because you are dealing with plastic makes them all most impossible to repair. So to answer your question, easier to replace the device.

I have a kenwood MIDI M-45 /MIDI M-757 audio system. The CD player won't play. The disc loads but error comes up NO DISC, can you help????


The cd unit is not reading the disc, the laser pickup may be dirty, or the pladder motor that cd sits on may be defective. If you can get at the laser pickup lens, clean it with rubbing alcohol with a Q-Tip very carefully in circular motion and allow several minutes to dry.

I have a Pioneer CD player that is probably about twenty-five years old. It has a six CD holder that fits into the changer. This changer moves the CD's in and out of the player. You can play them in order...


It cycles through the CDs because it can not read any of them. The most common cause of this is the lens falling out. These players have the optics upside down. You load the CDs with the label down correct? The lens is probably floating around inside the unit. Sometimes you can reinstall the lens and the unit is OK. Please use a small amount of clear nail polish to "glue" the lens in place. Anything else will cloud up the lens making the unit junk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the unit may need a ribbon cable or just a complete alignment.

Good luck.

Kenwood kdc c717 10 disc changer. the buffers each side of the unit that contain oil are leaking and need replacing where can i get the parts. many thanks


Check with an authorized kenwood service center in your area. That would be the easiest way to get them, they can order it for you. many electronic repair centers are authorized for Kenwood

It has 4 of them and the name of the part is a "Damper" and here is the part number you need to ask for:

D39-0242-05

after you get them, make sure they are installed properly, they must have the little metal knob being held real good or it will come loose and then you will get lots of skipping when playing a disc.

let me know fi I can be more help.

My hi-fi refuses to play CDs! it comes up with a 'no disc' error when there really is a disc there.


The "no disc" error message indicates that the unit failed to read the disc. There can be a number of reasons for this. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Many times that cleaning will resolve the problem. If not, please supply the make and model of the unit and I'll provide additional options.
