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.

BOSE 3 CD PLAYER DISC 3 SHOWS DISC ERROR AND WILL NOT EJECT. TRIED SLIDING OLD DISC UNDER STUCK DISC AS RECOMMENDED WITH NO SUCCESS


hi,
Its because of the disc three is out of its potion in the tray. You have to remove the mechanism to remove the disc from the tray. You have to be very carefull while removing the mechanism because the cd loading mechanism is a very complicated part of cd players . Because when you remove the mechanism to eject the disc, the timing of of the the machanisum can be changed this will lead to malfunction of the loading arms and wheels and will cause serious damages to the mechanism. If you are not aware of how to remove the the try to contact the bose servicing centre.
If you are confident the try to remove the cd manually.
OK

Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

More triage first.

Which unit cuts off? Signal Cables won't make either do that. Either will run just fine even without them.

Speaker issues or shorts will pose problems for the amp.

Do you have the manuals? If not, seek them.

The Disc Players optics are either dirty and need cleaned, or the optics are out of align and need replaced/repaired, depending on the make and model. If you have a DVD Player cleaner, one that uses fluid, run it thru a few times and try again. If you do not have one, most convenience stores carry them now and will clean all CD/DVD/Home/Auto models, and is a good investment! Just make sure you get a cleaner that uses fluid. Hope this helps!

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

We have the RCA RS2767i Home Stereo with 5-disc changer and ipod dock. The CD Tray won't eject or shuffle...everything else works fine. It seems the disc tray isn't responding to anything. We read in the...


Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.
