On your player there is a switch, usually on the bottom or inside the CD compartment. It will say "hold". You need to switch this in the opposite direction that it is currently in. Afterwards you should have no problems. This feature is designed to lock your player so that you don't accidently push buttons when your active.
1. Slap it while it is on but with no disk inside.
2. Make sure batteries touch the metal contacts.
3. Make sure that "hold"(a switch on the side of the player) is not on.
4. are batteries in correctly?
5.if nothing works then chuck it or return it if you can.....
Hope this helps!
There is a switch on the bottom of the unit that puts it in "HOLD" mode. My guess its for use when it is shipped so there will be less chance of damage. Try switching the two position switch to the other position.
Hold down the Display/Menu function button (one of those three buttons on the left of the unit) for about 3-4 seconds until the display reads "t set". When this appears, push the track forward button once (>>|) so the display reads "beep"; now press the play pause button (>||) once. The display will now say "on", push the track forward button (>>|) once to make it read "off"; now push the stop play button. You're done. Enjoy the silence.
1) Your disc may be bad: scratches on surface, the surface maybe dirty, the disc is maybe bended,...
Try with other discs, if the error occurs see next steps. If not, the initial disc was bad, but don't throw away, you may be able to clean it.
2) The Laser-optics in your Walkman can also suffer:
- open your Walkman as if you would load a disk; look inside and you will see a little lens inside: clean it by using a ear-cleaner ( little stick with cotton on one or both ends). First dip the cotton end in some pure natural alcohol ( ethyl) and wipe very carefully over the little lens surface
3) The drive-mechanism of the Laser may also be cause; the only thing you can do on the field; the little lens ( see 2 ) normally should be near the end of a channel which you can recognize as the cut-out of the plastic . While reading a CD the lens moves thru this channel.
You can try to push very softly this lens towards the nearest end
of the channel. It often helps.
4) The Laser can be to its end of life; you can ask to change the
opto-electrical mechanism, but I'm afraid it will cost you nearly
as much as a new player; if you can buy a second hand might be even cheaper.
Important for the future:
- don't write with markers on discs; these texts release small quantities of fumes on laser-lenses
- smokers pollute also with nicotine-fumes their lenses and discs
Hope you can get nice music ASAP; let us know
On almost every port. cd player is a botton lock switch . Some make all the buttons not work and some units only let play work. I suggest you look for this before taking apart as these units have whats called ribbon cable inside them and are very easy to damage them.
