Open Question

Discs in player but display says no disc

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.

SOURCE: it is not reading the blank disks anymore

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.

SOURCE: wacs7500 streamium cannot read discs

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.

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Was this player playing previously? And how long have you been using this player? I suspect the lens of the player. Once the lens of the player becomes weak, it won't play discs any longer.

The first thing my mind goes to, is the lens. The lens id responsible for reading/loading data on discs. So if the lens is unable to read the disc, there is no way the player is going to play the disc.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or probably, a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.
