CD Compartment After about a year, the cd player started to get fuzzy after playing a cd for a half hour and eventually stopped recognizing cds. I cleaned the cds and still they wouldnt play. After two years, the cd door won't retract all the way down when closing. What should I do to fix this problem?

  • Anonymous Feb 29, 2012

    I rarely used this except as an alarm clock. It worked fine for a few months, but now it spin. The door etc. work fine, but a cd will not spin. I looked inside to see if I could see a problem. It looks okay and the door opening mechanism works finel Maybe there is a drive belt or something off. I did not go any deeper. Now it is so old (maybe 2005?) I cannot even find anyone to repair it. I think I paid about $70 for it on sale at Circut City, which is closed here in Southern California.

Hi ..I have Pionner PD-M701 CD Chanager .the player works so fine and recognize all cds in the trays but the issue is in the reading .

hi Sam.
you could try this.
Clean the CD if it skips or the player can't read it. Use a clean lint-free cotton cloth and make sure the CD is not scratched. Use a lens-cleaning CD in the player. If you can access the lens without opening the case, clean it with a cotton swab and lens cleaner.
Why does a CD player skip? They don't scratch as easily as vinyl LPs, but I've damaged half a dozen CDs over the years. If a CD is skipping, first give it good clean using a CD wipe or mild soap and water. Dry carefully with a lint-free cloth in a straight line from the centre to the edge. Rubbing in circles can cause more damage.

I have a Samsung SCM-7450 Hi-Fi System. The CD player has stopped recognizing that there are CDs ready to play. Any suggestions?

I had the same issue with mine. I had 3 cds left in mine as well. Everything else was working fine yet when I went to play cds the player wouldn't recognize the cd and would just skip to the next cd. When I would open the carousel door to clean the cds it still didn't help. As it was very dusty in there I assumed that the lens was dirty and
perhaps the reader needed to be"pushed" a bit to free it up. Ok I got bold and decided I would have to take the beast apart. Lots of screws..... once the unit was free from those screws I found that you have to lift the phono from its top docking and tithe remove the plug in link to the adjoining circuit board. After the phono was removed it was very tedious and tricky in trying to get some separation between the tuner and cassette location.. just be patient and gentle...... I did and finally got to see the cd roulette it was very cloudy and dusty. at this point I plugged in the ac to enable the door to slide back and forth. I could see that the lens looked like it had cataracts.. quite dusty etc. I blew compressed air and freed up much of it and then took cotton swabs moisten with Lukewarm water and then used one which had commercial cd lens cleaner on it. I then gently nudged the reader back and forth. Although at an angle I placed a cd into the roulette and attempted to see if this chore had worked..... it did! It showed the amount of tracks and time etc. I then hit play and it was tracking and playing! Now the bigger task was putting this back together. Although at first daunting to ensure the screws lined up with their respected holes everything did come together. Hey only one small metal bracket didn't make it back inside.. yet everything works.. this whole ordeal took about an hour and a half. JimB Rochester NH

I have a 2001 Honda Crv, the cd player keeps ejecting CDs before it has the chance to load them. The radio works fine, and I gave tried burnt and original disc CDs. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Are these CDs that you burned yourself? Older CD players won't recognize the audio file format of this kind of recording, only the established file format that typical retail CDs have used for years. In recent years, CD players have been developed to recognize more file types than just the old format; but with an older player like you have in your car, it wouldn't recognize what you were trying to play, as if you put a DVD in. It balks, and spits it out. You can burn CDs with the correct file format, you just need the appropriate software or file translator.

I bought a Radio Shack cd cleaner (cd w/little brush on it) to clean the lens of the cd player however the machine won't recognize the disc when inserted so I cannot figure out how to "play" it. Many of...

yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps
