Question about Sharp XL-HP505 CD Shelf System

3 Answers

Cd player stops, then returns to beginning of disc after no more than 2 minutes

I installed a CD laser lens cleaner (Radio Shack), and following the instructions on the disc chose track 3 in order to activate the lens cleaning. When I pressed "play" it took so long for the disc to play that it returned to track 1.
In general, pressing "play" does not immediately start the disc -- a delay of perhaps 30-45 seconds, or possibly more.

    I can't clean the lens because I can't get the disc to play on track 3 (as per instruction on cleaner disc) because selecting "play" doesn't start up quickly enough and the cleaner disc returns to track 1 (the beginning). Why does it take so long to get the disc to start playing?
    The "advice" already posted makes no sense to me.

    I decided to let the cleaner disc find track 3 by itself, which it did, then cleaned the lens. This seems to have solved the problem, and I am grateful that there doesn't seem to be anything mechanical broken.

The general purpose of a "lens cleaner" would be for the brush on the cleaner to make contact with the lens so that the cleaning solution will make contact with the lens. So even if the CD starts up, unless you move it over to track 3 it will not clean as the lens only goes as far as track 1 on the initial startup. Now the question that you may need to answer is whether or not the player is still able to play any other CD. If it does then try that lens cleaner CD on another player. If it plays then most likely the mechanism holding the lens is stuck. If it does not then it is possible that there is just something wrong with the way the data on the lens cleaner CD is written which would cause your player not to read it hence it will jump back to track 1 if it cannot understand what is on track 3. So check the lens cleaner CD first. If that works then you have to check another CD if it still plays.

    Note that specific tracks lie on specific lines on the CD. If the mechanism holding the lens is stuck it will not be able to go to that part of the CD.

That is just okay since it is not a media that you are playing, the lens cleaner will still initiate and calibrate itself so that the cleaner part will hit the lens for cleaning.

note that if the cleaner came with a solution, be careful not to put too much on the CD cleaning system.

    when you play an audio disk, can you play the furthest track, like 10, 11, 12, because if not that the lens may be stuck thats why you can't go to a farther track.

    more like a plastic gear inside that got stuck or broken, you may want to check on visible parts like that too

Cd keeps skeeping


You can try to clean it with a soft cloth. I would check the disk for scratches. If that doesn't work, you can try it in a different player. If it works in a different player, the other player needs cleaned or replaced. It is possible the disk is damaged beyond repair.

CD tray opens and shuts fine. With CD loaded and shut the screen still says NO DISK. These are disks which have always played without problem on this CD player. Is there anything I can try before taking...


When the CD player loads properly and still reads as no disk this indicates that the player lens (Optical device which reads the disk information) Is either dirty or bad. The only option you have is to get a disk lens cleaner and run it on the system. Once you run it, it is supposed to work if the lens is not spoilt. Otherwise you will just have to replace the lens by taking it to a repairer.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

My 4 year old APD 3955 stopped working. You can


Check the lens, sometimes dirt gets in there. Try to run a DVD cleaning disk... they are sold at many places, they are cheap and you can still use them for cleaning your CD players and DVD players at home. This should fix the problem.... if not ... try to shake the DVD player gently to remove any foreign matter that could be stuck somewhere...good luck!

My receiver is reading NO DISC it is a vocopro karaoke player/receiver model # DKP-10G


First, the player does not support DVDs or MP3 discs.

Try two things:
#1:
Unplug from outlet and Turn ON player (while unplugged).
Plug back in and try to use the CD.

#2:
Obtain a CD laser lens cleaner from Radio Shack ($13). It is an audio CD with a row of brushes and does not use chemicals

TASCOM cd a500 - DOES NOT READ DISC


There is one of two things that is wrong with it..

1 the laser lens is dirty and needs to be cleaned witch you can fine a laser lens cleaner at your local radio shack.

2 the laser lens could have been bumped off the track so is that is the case you will have to poen it up and use something soft like a Que tip and gently nudge it.
