CD Player will not read ANY CD's, in ANY tray or any type (stamped, CDR, MP3, etc)
I've had this thing for 2 days - the CD player failed on the first day and would fail on reading CDs. It did not matter what type, whethere they were CDR, standard MP3. They would load normally, you could hear them spin up, the dipslay would show "reading" and then would time out with "no disk."
Apparently this is a very common problem with this model. Customer service was rude and not helpful. I was able to resurrect it to play CD's for an hour or two after leaving it unplugged for a while, but this technique doesn't work anymore. See the following link to Amazon to see the # of complaints with the same problem:
Does anyone know if there is a specific part that will solve this problem? Is this a design defect and any repair will only last a short time?

You can not use normal Data CDs. Use CD-R Digital Audio CDs or CD-R
Audio recordable CDs. If you use correct Digital Audio Recordable CDs,
it will show OPC. Once you press Recording, audio out is coming.
Otherwise you can not listing to audio. Please read manual carefully.

Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.
Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.
Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.
This seems to be a "Dust on Lens" problem. No issues... It happens when you keep your CD/DVD players unattended for a long period of time. Even if packed well enough, dust/moisture does tend to gather on the lens and cause this type of an irritating problem.
If you have a lens cleaning CD (if not, go buy one) then just insert it and let it spin regardless of whether or not it reads it. The spinning action will clean off any finely deposited dust particles on the lens. Repeat th process till the Lens Cleaner CD starts playing its audio. If this happens then all your other CDs should read. One more thing, make sure that the motor is indeed spinning. How can you know???
1. Buy listening carefully for a whirring sound the moment you put in your CD/DVD 2. By feeling for minor vibrations on the front panel (CD tray front cover) 3. Putting in a CD/DVD with a label straight as you can read it and see if it comes out differently on ejecting it. I hope you understand what I mean...
If this doesn't then it could be a blown lens circuit or a dead drive motor. In that case your player needs to be taken to a service center.
the set is not loading because the loading action is not getting compplete. please look into the loading drive and correct the loading , check on the drive. if after it had loaded the cd is not loading the drive then check also onthe belt drive, clean the lens of the optical drive because if so it will not read and so stop action.
change the head if the cd is not turning or if it totate and not reading. Helpful? Good day
?: Does the cd spins? If it does the optical eye that reads the cd could be dirty. Clean the eye with cd lens cleaner. If the cd is not spinning the motor could be bad. Also some cd players can't read certain disks because of the density of the disk. Make sure you read the manual to see what cds are compatible with your boombox. I hope these solutions were helpful.
the dealer told me not to use burned cds to long in the cd player. the cds are a little thiker then a regular cd. i had to not use the cd player for a couple of days. once the cd cooled down it cam back out and i havent had a problem since. Solution dont let burned cds get to hot
if you are good at opening then open the combo drive and clean the lens once by using some lens cleaner solution and then refit it it should work ...
if you still persist the problem then think that the life of the combo drive is getting down and the time to purchase new one is getting nearer ..
after some days your combo drive will fail to read the cds but it will read occasionally for some days after that it will not read anything that s because the lens is becoming weaker ...
at the cost of replacing the lens you can purchase the new dvd writer ...
but also try cleaning the lens with some lens cleaner solution after that it may work for some days ..
the only problem with the combo drive is the lens will be weaker than the normal dvd writer or cd writer so after some days of usage it fails to detect dvds followed by it fails in detecting of cds too ...
