Okay,the only working cd player I have is acting up. Every time I put a disc in and press play, it doesnt spin, just makes weird noises like its trying to spin. And those two dashes that come up when its loading the disc, just blink forever, then after a while they stop and all you see is "Er". I have tried everything I know. Cleaning the lense, blowing inside just to make sure its not dusty, changing the batterys, making sure the controls are on right, and every disc I put in there is brand new. Help me!!! I cant live with out my music!!!!
Try gently moving the laser assembly forward or back, it might just be stuck and unable to move back to the home position. Is the laser all the way to the middle?
You need to open it up to check the parts inside. First look around to see if there is any plastic parts that are damaged. This might account for the noises inside. If you can not see anything wrong. Get a magnifying glass or lens and look at the lazer lens. Make certain the power is NOT on for any of these tests. If you see any odd light patterns or damage on the lazer lens it will not play discs. Unless it was an expensive model it will not be worth repairing if the lens is damaged. Do not open the unit if the model is still under warranty. In which case contact the maker of the unit.
