Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
Could be dust on the laser lens. Can get a cleaning CD which has a small brush to clean it, or if you can see the lens (don't look directly at it when switched on as the invisible infra-red laser is bad for your eyes) then clean it gently with a cotton bud (q-tip).
If cleaning does not fix it and the CDs are in good condition then the laser unit is bad and needs replacing which is possible but might cost the same as buying a new CD player.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice. I had to remove the CD player from the 3-in-1 and eventually was able to find space to clean the little lens. It now seems OK"

Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.
Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
