Question about Sharp XL-HP505 CD Shelf System
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.
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.

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.

That can really happen since you will perform cleaning on it,,

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.
