CD plays CD's intermittently does not recognise some CDs
Hi, My Sony SA-VA100 system CD is playing up. Even with original CD's sometimes it plays a CD and sometimes does not recognise the very same CD. Also does not recognise burn't CD's and original educational voice CD's. From 20 original CD's I tested on the player it recognised only half of the CD's. Later it would not replay some that it had earlier played. The CD's are all clean.
I tried the ffg already:
Cleaned the CD's
Reset the system to factory settings.
Sometimes it will play a CD when surround sound is off, other times it does not play a CD at all.
How can I fix this problem, can the CD reader/optical device be upgraded on the Sony SA-VA100 so that it reads all types of CDs?

Have you tried completely powering down the system, removing the power cord from the wall socket? If not, please try that. Wait two minutes. Then plug it in and power up the system. If this does not clear the problem, contact Bose, to get the latest firmware disk. The firmware disk will reprogram your Lifestyle sound system. Then, everything should work properly.
you need to remove the lid/cover expose the laser diode use a cotton bud wipe it clean,is this your only cd player in the house? and unstable mains power coming in can cause odd things to happen with cd's. the other thing is to add some lub to the motor that drives the cd spindle,again if this does not get up to speed it wont play properly.
Some audio cds have a coding on them for copy right, thats if you are terying to listen to an original cd. If you have a copy cd, sometimes the dye on the cd may not be compatable with your machine. Try and do a backup with a different make of blank cd.
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.
Your best bet is to actaully purchase a better CD player, which sucks because it sounds like the one that Sony sent you in the VIAO system is defective. I would contact the merchant that you purchased the system from and demand them to replace the defective drive.
