Hi one solution to your probelom is that the lazer is underpowered.here is a fix it 4 u. A major problem began 2 years ago Some New DVDs would not always play. Message on LED display says "NO PLAY". I discovered today that the problem lies with the laser being underpowered for some DVDs. On the web I found a fix. Warning! Always have someone competent with electricity to fix the SA-HT80 with the following instructions: 1. Remove all disks from player. 2. When door is open slide front door cover upwards to remove. 3. Leave door open. 4. Important UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS! 5. Remove the 3 screws from under the front panel then remove cover screws. 6. Disconnect player from the mains. Remove cover. 7. Once you have removed the cover you will see on left side is the drive parts. 8. Pull out the two flat cables which go to the Drive from the vertical circuit Board(Hold the cable with thumb and forefinger close to the connector and slide the flat cables out of their connector. 9. Remove the screws fixing the drive unit to the base of the cabinet. 10. Now remove drive unit. 11. Placing the drive upright on a flat surface proceed to remove the two screws holding the Plastic bridge that sits over the disk. 12. Also undo the screw on the small circuit board which holds the disk sensor switch onto the bridge and unclip that small board. Remove this plastic bridge over the drive. 13. On underside of drive remove the two small screws from the drive circuit board. You can now gently prize this board loose.(There is some resistance as a plastic clasp is holing onto the underside.) 14. Turn Drive back to upright position. 15. Remove the screws which hold the drive in(Screws go through rubber mounts to cushion the drive). 16. Once you have loosened the drive look at the underside and you will see one flat cable goes to the Laser. Where this cable meets the metal part you will see a tiny device connected on the outside edge of the flat cable. 17. Turn the POT 1/5 off a turn clockwise(looks like a small washer and be gentle with it) I used pointed nose pliers for this. 18. Now reassemble DVD player. 19. Ensure cover is in place and screwed down before connecting to a power supply. This is a guide which you will follow at your own risk. Happy fixing Gerald

Panasonic CD player model #SC-EN7: CD will not play, keeps saying "reading disc", but the disc does not spin, the transverse deck has been replaced with no change in status.


There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

CD player in 00 Volvo S70 not working


Try a "Laser Lens Cleaner" one that uses fluid, you can find them at just about any electronics retailer for 15-20. Run it thru a couple times and try your cd again. If it plays, make sure you clean it 3 or 4 times a year. It's the only preventative maintanance you can do. If it still won't play, it need service, if it's just an am/fm/cd without a changer etc. your better off replacing the unit. The repair will run from 125-175 on average. They just replace th cd transport. Hope this helps
