    CD spinning without playing--daughter has additional information: some CD's do play. In general, it appears that copies of albums do not play, but purchased CD's do. This afternoon was able to play an album, although it seemed to start with difficulty, took more than once of hitting "play" button.

Try a few cd-es and see if they all behave the same ...if some are read and some not ..than the cd-es are either protected or they are in a format that this one do not support ..but if they all behave the same and it is not reading them it means that the read-head is faulty and need to be cleaned or changed..

In most of the cases,this problem is not related to cd.But still get the cd checked in any other player too,this will confirm the fault.Also try other various cds in the cd player and confirm.But if the cds not playing in other player too then its faulty cd.But this is very rare.Most probably the fault is related to cd player.In the cd player unit there are two main parts.One is cd spinning motor and other is cd reading lens(its also called "EYE" of the cd player).But as you said that cd spin but its not playing,.This clears that motor is working,but its not playing so its the problem of lens.The lens is not reading the cd,because its got dirty or its got cracked and faulty.The cd player lens is made up of thin glass and its very delicate.Many a times dust gets collected on the lens,so the lens stops reading the cd and it do not play.Some times there is no dirt on lens but it gets cracked,if by mistake any pressure is applied on the unit or up-side down cd is placed in the tray or internal short circuit has occurred.This are few possibilities of lens not working.But in most of the cases its dirty lens causing this problem.SO open the tray by pressing the eject button,then unplug the unit from main power outlet,by keeping the cd tray open.Then take air blower and blow air in the unit.Please remove,if there is any cd in the tray while blowing air.Just blow air for few minutes.Then take a dry tissue and clan the cd placing tray externally and then reconnect the power and see,if that is helping or not.If the problem is same as before,then disassemble the unit and clean the lens manually by hand using dry tissue paper and then see if its helping.But take care while cleaning the lens with dry tissue you dont apply too much pressure on lens or any other parts.Also before removing any screw to disassemble the unit.Take a marker with you ready.Just mark the position of parts and screws before removing.If you have a cell phone with web cam in it then take a photo of the internal parts before moving any parts.Disassembly is not very hard but reassembling is not easy.So this pictures and marks with help you for reassembly.----------But if lens is cracked internally then the lens assembly has to be replaced.You can get it replaced from local cd /dvd player repair center.They have this parts with them.--------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

    Thanks.This will help.Helpmech.

  • raj somaiya Dec 29, 2010

    Ok got your comment.If that is the case,then in that issue also,internal motor and lens assembly needs to be checked.The motor spins the cd and the inner lens moves a bit to go through the cd.If there anything got blocked in between movement of lens or the motor then due to slow movement the cd takes time to play.But once the motor and lens get a required start,it plays the cd,.As per the problem you can say,that unit requires proper servicing and cleaning internally.A local cd/dvd repair shop can do it with proper cleaning material /liquid for servicing.

    -------------------

    This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

CD spins but will not play


This will be due to the cd drive not being able to 'read' the disk correctly. Make sure the CD is spotless look for finger prints or scratches, if there are none, look to invest in a cd drive cleaning disk, ideally one with little bristles. Cd drives are relatively cheap though consider replacing it. Try other CD's..

My DCM-360 has stopped playing discs after my moving house. It spins the carousel, picks up the disc and then puts it down without spinning the disc up. Laser problem or disc-spinning-motor problem or...


Had a similar problem with my Denon. When I inserted CD it takes it in but immediately stops - like it doesnt sense the CD. Same problem with Single or Multi changer. Removed cover, removed reader ( 4 screws) and found lens had fallen out. Cleaned, reinstalled with touch of super glue on rim - works fine.

Sometimes cd wont turn or play. CD seems to catch the lid when spinning. Is there problems relating to the lid position after time? Any ideas/history. Thanks


That usually happens when you get the reading lense scratched (from inserting dirty cds with dust, grease or finger prints). So, since the cd content cannot be read, it just don't give the command to the chip that converts the input data (whatever the content of the cd) into output data (what you listen or what you see from the cd). Hope it helps, good luck,

Cd spins buts doesn't play I fixed the drawer open closing


Clean the lens of the laser with a cotton swab. Remove the cover, and locate the glass lens at the top of the laser assembly. Pre-wet a cotton swab with glass cleaner and wipe the lens carefully without applying pressure. Use the other end of the swab to dry off and remove any residual dust or gunk.

Reassemble the unit and load a disc. If the problem was caused by dust or smog film on the lens, it should now play without any problem.

B&O Beosound 1


Hi, It may be that the brushes on the CD spindle motor are getting dirty. A relatively easy fix, IF you know how to open a Beosound 1 without causing damage. I used to work in a B&O Authorized Service Center, and I suggest contacting the one nearest you first for an estimate. Most "normal" shops are most likely not prepared to handle the sometimes complex disassembly/reassembly issues.

Disc does not spin/struggles to spin


If the relevant problem only occurs while watching a DVD movie, and everything is fine besides this (i.e. if the device lets you listen to an Audio CD without creating any problem) the problem might be related to the buffer. Because it simply needs larger available space of RAM to use when spinning a DVD compared to a CD. In my opinion, the problem of your DVD player is derived from a buffer underrun state. If I am right, there is nothing to do! Unfortunately, I have to say that if it was a computer , I would easily suggest that you upgrade your RAM. But, sorry..
