Question about Sony CDP-C305 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Player will not recognize that there is a cd in it.

I load a CD in the player and try to play it, but the player says NO DISC....and that's it. Any ideas ?? Is the laser eye fouled up/dirty maybe ?

Yeppers. the first thing to do would be to use a lens cleaning disc to see if that will help. if not take the top off the unit and clean the lens manually with a damped cotton swab and slowly with little pressure move the cotton swab in a circular motion then turen around to the dry side of the swab and do the same as before and try thge unit. if that doesnt work, then the laser, tracking/focus offsets/gains could need alighnment or the slider is not working or the spindle motor circuit is not working. Im afrad these repairs would not be for the untrained peron, as you need special test equipment to troubleshoot these problems and also may not be worth taking into a repair shop. Good Luck

I have a 2008 escalade with a 6 disc changer and navigation. my disc will load and unload but they wont play once loaded.


The laser eye might be dirty. I think they still sell cd laser eye cleaners. Or you could try spraying some canned air like air duster in the cd slot.

MY CAR AUDIO WONT PLAY CD


Hi,

Most CD players that would not play a disc even with a known good disc inside signifies that the laser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to:
1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs
2. defective, weak, dirty/dusty burned-out laser eye/lens;
3. dirty, dried up lubrication of the slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves) or some other components; and/or
4. dirty, dried up lubrication, defective spindle motor.

A few things you can try:
1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops);
2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area;
3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be;
4. gently press on the tray door (if it's got one) once the disc is loaded;
5. relube, clean as necessary but that would require pulling the unit out of the dash.

Should this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

Thank you for using Fixya.
