I have repaired a lot of these exact Sharp stereo's and can say with certainty that you have a bad laser pick-up. The only cure for your problem is to have the pick-up replaced. It says no disc because that part is bad and can not read the disc, so it thinks there is no disc.

A repair for this would cost in the area of $125 to $150 depending on the rates of the service center you take it to.

This should give you the information you need to determain if it is worth fixing to you.

Sorry it is not something you could fix easy, but that is just the nature of these types of stereo's. That part, the laser pick-up, is a very expensive part. I have no idea why they charge so much for it, but it is killing the repair centers making so many of these too costly to fix.

I hope this helps, let me know if you require any further help.

Why does my CD player display "no disc"?


I had a similar problem with my DVD player. Cleaning the laser eye helped fix my problem. You can clean it manually if you are not afraid to remove the cover of the unit or you can try a cleaning disc. The eye can collect dust and prevent it from reading the ID sector of the music CD.

I am getting an error Message 0306 or 0203 when trying to open the cd tray on my Sharp CD-BA150 Stereo System what can I do to fix this problem


For the error 0306, simply remove the lid of your system and clear the dust out/off of the lense and surrounding areas. (i.e. soft cloth, canned air, ect...) Hope this helps!

Need to remove slide tray to get at the optisal system.


it has a rotating gear with a stopper on it.there is a limit switch to tell the motor to stop.if you do not set the timing properly,it will be out of sync and will not work.the best way is to remove the top cover,load it to play with no disc in it and you will see the pick up.do not look into it ,it is a laser beam,and can damage your eyes.if you want to clean the lense,get it to load,no disc to come up and then unplug it and clean the assembly

CD player fails to read CDs


It's likely it's dirt on the CD lens. You can try cleaning it with a lens cleaning disc. But if the lens has been damaged it will never read the disc again, no matter how many times it is cleaned.

This is a typical problem when the laser " eye" gets dust on it, unplug the unit and you can try to remove cover and spray the optical pickup "eye' with canned compressed air or other type of optical cleaner found at say like radio shacks, I have solved many disc reading errors with this method

Try pressing the play button on the remote. If it works correctly, the play button on the unit may be defective.
