Question about Audio Players & Recorders

My Philips MCD149 refuses to play CD's...It tries to read them for a while but eventually comes up with the message NO DISC. This is only a recent problem and it still plays DVD's fine. Any ideas how to rectify this?

    I had exactly the same problem. i phoned philips dierct and was told that they had never had anything like that before. Philips said that they would phone the next day. Philips never phoned back. I got quite annoyed and went and bought another micro system. I would never buy Philips equipment again. Not happy.

    Quick update...I took it back to the shop and they replaced it with no problems. However, tried to play a CD yesterday and exactly the same thing happened! Seems to be a fault with the design of the system.

Cannot play this disc

As long as you are sure about using DVD-R which is the most common then i can only assume it did not finalize the disc.

Selective playing of DVD's on Sharp DVD Recorder

Given that the machine will read disks it has written itself but not play regular discs, I suspect the lens assembly is slightly out of alignment and needs adjusting. This is not normally something you can do at home unless you have the correct test gear. It will need to go to a repair shop. One thing you can try before that is to clean the lens. Buy a quality (Scotch 3M, Philips ) cleaning disc and try it. Could be it's only a speck of dust on the lens.....

"No disc" message while CD is in

either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit that reads the disc so it can play.

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but

This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,

My recently made music CD will NOT play in our Philips FW-R7. It will play on all our computers and DVD players. The message is "Wrong Disc." Other music CD we've made do play fine in the FW-R7.

This is common with burned cd's they have trouble playing in different sets. Do prerecorder cd's play fine in your philips? If those are having trouble also you could improve it's playability possibly with a cleaning of the opu. Optical pick up.

Your CD player thinks the CD is in Upside down. Basically it cannot read the disc. You need to run a CD laser Lens cleaner disc to hopefully get it back reading the Discs good again. Otherwise you will nee to take it apart and clean it all yourself manually.
