Have you tried disconecting it from the power completely leaving it for five minutes and plugging it in again?

SOURCE: `Sony CD player won't play burned discs

Many of the older Car CD Players will not play CD-R's or they may with static sounds behind the music. What you need to do is try using a different brand of cd-r disc. If this doesn't work then it means that you may need to replace the CD player because the model that you have may not be decoded in order to play CD-R, CD-RW, play MP3's or anything of that such.
Get back to me if this doesn't work I'll help you square it away.

SOURCE: My sony MHC-GX99 stereo will not play my cds.

Some possible causes:

a) dusty laser lens - cleaning it is the solution, you may use the lens cleaner disc (the one that uses liquid), this can be purchased in many shops. I prefer to clean the lens manually, using a cotton stick and some ethyl or isopropyl alcohol (DO NOT use acetone, benzene or similar strong solvents, these will ruin the lens).

b) dirty brush contacts inside the spindle motor (i repaired quite some CD players that had this kind of trouble). They cause the motor to spin with less power so the driver tries to compensate putting more power into the motor, which causes a feedback effect on focus (it may not work properly). The best solution for this is to replace the spindle motor (if you can find one), the second best solution is to clean the brushes and the commutator (that's what i usually do), but this is a pretty delicate and somewhat complicated procedure since you have to open up the motor, clean it and then put it back together in a correct way. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless there is absolutely no way to obtain a new motor (if you are truly interested in learning how to do it, post me a message, i'll explain it).

c) the main power switch has oxydized contacts, which means that the voltage on the primary of the power transformer is a bit lower, and, consequentially, all of the secondary voltages are lower, too. I know it may sound weird, but i had some players in which i cleaned the lens (on BOTH sides plus the mirror inside the laser), opened and cleaned all of the motors, but they would still not work correctly. Only after i've cleaned the contacts on the main power switch did they return to normal functioning. Obviously it's much easier to change the switch to solve this (if you have a spare one). You can check if the switch is the cause if you bypass it (you need to bring the mains voltage directly to the primary of the power transformer, but do it with caution as mains voltage can be LETHAL to you and your CD player - i don't recommend this either if you're not trained in electric safety).

These are just some of the possible causes. It may as well be that the real cause is something else, so don't take any of these for granted, they are just suggestions.

Anyway, i hope you can fix it (or at least have someone do it for you).

Good luck and best regards

Dr. OM,

Lets give it a try. The purchasedate will be 1991 (HI).
I'll suppose you allready cleaned the laserunit.
You can try to clean the laserslides, sometimes they are sticky and dry. Then the laser is not fast and precise enough to read the index of your CD.
Clean them with some alcohol on cottontips.
When they are really clean, use just a little teflonoil to make sure the laserunit slides very smoothly.

This happens when your laser is not able to read the data of the disc. Either u are using disc which the player cannot read or the disc is not readable. If your CD player is not reading the discs which it used to read earlier then CD player laser head has to be replaced.

When I put a dvd in it try's to load and then it reads on the screen "no disc" and It won't play my player is only 5 months old.

Well, first I have to ask if it does load? If it does, and is not reading the disc, it will say, "no disc". DVD's in general are very touchy and the Memorex is not a high quality brand. If only 5 months old, it should still be under warranty.
