Why does my cd player on my Radio/Cassette/CD boombox keeps reading ncd on all my CD's even on my disk cleaner cd?


The laser assembly is not reading the disc, as the laser ages it becomes weaker until it can no longer scan the disc and can not play, you have done everything that I would have recommended, at this stage it is far cheaper to replace the boombox than replace the laser pickup assembly.

Our Insignia Boombox does not detect the CD. CDs are placed in the Boombox face up, but it continues to say "no disc."


I hope you mean "label side up" since every boombox I have ever seen plays discs face down. If you are putting them in upside down, your CDs certainly won't be detected. However, maybe in yours the CD does need to go in that way.

If you are putting the discs in the right way, the lens on the laser pickup may be dirty. You can try a cleaning disc, but these often don't do any good. And in some multi-disc players they can even jam and cause damage. It's usually best to clean the lens with a cotton swab and lens cleaner.

Another possibility is that the pickup is just too worn out to play anymore. If this is a new problem and it's not because of dirt, the pickup may need to be replaced. Over time the laser power drops, and when it gets too weak there isn't enough light bouncing off the disc for the pickup to register it. Pickups are replaceable, but depending on the part cost and the work needed to get to it, it may be more economical to replace the boombox.

CD player skips


Try cleaning the lens. If you can see the lens when you open it to put a cd in, you can clean the lens yourself with a q-tip. Use a very small amount of alcohol or windex, just enough to make the tip of the q-tip moist, and rub it on the glass lens in a circular motion. then use the dry end of the q-tip to dry it off. You can then try another cd and see if it plays good. If so, you are good to go, if not, you probably need a new laser pick up. If it needs a new laser, you may want to just buy a new boombox. The repair will most likely cost as much or more than a new boombox would.

If you are not able to see the lens and clean it yourself, try using a cleaning disc. They do not work as good, but they can help. You run it for about 20 seconds, or whatever the directions state. Then give it another try, see if it plays better.

Those are the only reasonable steps for an end user who is not experienced with repairing these type of units. anything else you may end up trying could just cause more damage to the unit, if you are not experienced with electronic repairs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.
