Question about Philips CDC751 5-Disc CD Changer
Several months ago I cleaned my cd lens with a Recoton Laser-Matic laser lens cleaner, which I've used for several years, and the player quit working. The display indicated that I needed to insert a disc. Yesterday, I tried to play a cd again and it played wonderfully for 2 songs then quit again. I had selected "shuffle" just prior to hitting "play". When it quit, the display showed "shuffle Disc 2", but nothing was happening. I took shuffle off, opened the changer and selected "quick play" and it played one song, stopped and displayed something that looked like an "I". I hit shuffle and the display showed "insert disc". I turned the player off, selected "play" and the changer rotated and "read" each disc and then displayed "insert disc" and then "no disc" even though I had 4 disc in the changer. I put the Recoton lens cleaner in again today, but the player quit before the cleaner was able to do anything and the player will no longer work, but only says "no disc". A service man told me to chuck it out 'cause it would cost me $40 just for him to check it out and a new player is so cheap these days, but if anyone has a fix, I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks.
Sounds like that may be the case. You can buy one of those cd cleaning discs and try using that. or if you want to spend the time dis-assembling the recorder and use some rubbing alchohol and a q-tip to clean the laser lens. Otherwise not worth the cost to repair.

remove the cover and gently clean the lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol, then blow the lens dry. if all else fails, replace the optical pickup assembly (lens and spindle motor) or the whole player.

SOURCE: When I insert a CD-R
The message NO DISC may appear for several reasons:
1.No disc is loaded->Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY
2.The disc may be defective->Try a different disc
3.The disc is placed improperly in the tray->Make sure the disc is properly placed and centered in the tray and if the disc has a label on one side, make sure the label is facing up
4.The disc is dirty->Use a soft cloth to clean the disc by wiping in a straight line from the center of the disc to the outside edge
5.If the player cannot read CDs/DVDs correctly, try using a commonly available cleaning CD/DVD to clean the lens before taking the device to service. Other cleaning methods may destroy the lens.
6.Using non supported discs may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot loader or drive.
