Some cd's not reading on my portable cd player

Occasionally I get a cd that does not play on my portable cd player (ie plays briefly then stops, then plays briefly and stops etc. Happens when I skip to another track as well). Its not a fault with the cd as it plays on my computer. My compact disc player will play the majority of cd's fine. My guess is that it is the amount of data stored on the disc being too much for the player, but I really don't know.

Hi There are many things that can cause your problem, I can tell you the most likely ones, but I recommend you don't take the unit apart, as the mech. in a 300 disk changer is complicated & delicate, and you may just cost yourself alot more money than getting it repaired. The symptoms you sescribe can be caused by failing laser pickup, dirty laser lense (especially if you've done home renvations with drywall), split drive gear that moves the laser on the sled rails, or even a hair or piece of dirt in the gear teeth of that same gear. The unit will play fine, until it hits the tooth where the debris are, then it skips, or jumps back a bit and starts again until it hits the same spot. Also..badly scratched or finger printed disks will cause that, but that is the first thing most people check. I wish it was something you could repair yourself, but my best advise is to take it to a reputable repair shop, and hope it is not a bad laser, as that is a fairly expensive repair. Hope this helps, Good Luck!

Try using a laser lens cleaner. I have the Maxell Thunderon one thats on a Gold CD that you can get at best buy for like $20 or so, seems to work good here on the computer disc drives

Try cleaning the lens. If you can see the lens when you open it to put a cd in, you can clean the lens yourself with a q-tip. Use a very small amount of alcohol or windex, just enough to make the tip of the q-tip moist, and rub it on the glass lens in a circular motion. then use the dry end of the q-tip to dry it off. You can then try another cd and see if it plays good. If so, you are good to go, if not, you probably need a new laser pick up. If it needs a new laser, you may want to just buy a new boombox. The repair will most likely cost as much or more than a new boombox would.

If you are not able to see the lens and clean it yourself, try using a cleaning disc. They do not work as good, but they can help. You run it for about 20 seconds, or whatever the directions state. Then give it another try, see if it plays better.

Those are the only reasonable steps for an end user who is not experienced with repairing these type of units. anything else you may end up trying could just cause more damage to the unit, if you are not experienced with electronic repairs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.

Most likely cheaper to replace than repair. The labor cost for such a fiddly repair would be more than a new unit.

Disney Princess CD Player will not play music

try cleaning the laser with a q-tip if the laser is dirty from finger prints or dust it won't be able to read the disc therefore won't play. Clean laser and if that doesn't work then the child may have damaged the player in a fashion that would be better to get him/her a new one.

Its defective. Coby doesn't repair the units. The lense is off balance which is causing the laser to not read the dvd/cd.

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.
