Sounds like a weak, or bad laser. Not a cheap fix for any brand of unit, so may be a good time to upgrade.

CD player works but start delays from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. What could cause that?


Dust inside the cd player could be causing problems.
You need to try playing a cleaning cd and follow the instructions that come with it. You can also spray compressed air to clean out the cd portion of the stereo. You can also try unplugging the unit for 20 minutes and then plug it back in. Make sure your cds are clean and not too scratched up. If the unit is under a year old it may still be under warranty. If this does not resolve the issue you may have to have the unit professionally repaired. If the unit is not worth repairing you may need to buy another unit.

Could it have been knocked when in storage? Also try cleaning the lens of the CD player see if that makes a difference.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Good day - I moved for my work and upon


First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! Unplugg before opening!

CD Player stopped working


Probably there is dust on the lens. My CD player (different brand) did the same. I opened the case and cleaned the lens with a photo camera brush (VERY gently). Now it works fine.

If you cannot / do not want to open the device to access the lens, you may want to buy a cleaning CD.

Every disc in tray ends with noise after a minute


Try a cd cleaning disc, the ones you can buy with the small cleaning brushes on them! It sounds like the laser is dirty.

This sounds like it could need just a simple cleaning with a lens cleaner disc, or could be a bad spindle motor or spindle servo circuit, or the laser is getting weak, and last but not least It very well could be a damaged or dirty slider rail or motor assembly. In my opinion, the only one that is worth the money to try, would be the cleaning. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.

What is a good lock radio to get these days? I got this thing a couple of days ago to replace an older model with pretty much the same features auto set, dual alarms, that had started to randomly reset the time zones - not good for making it to work... I noticed that it had been updated and the control redesigned, so there were some more bells and whistles. Big mistake - HUGE! The instructions were too small to read, so found the manual on-line, enlarged it to 200%, which I could then see, but it wasn't written in any kind of logical order. Altogether completely and unnecessarily counter-intuitive and complicated. Took me HOURS to set up, and I'm no dummy. I have to go back to the instructions just to change the alarm or even change a radio station. Back it goes. So now I'm trying to find a suitable replacement - auto set and dual alarms are required, and it would be nice to have digital tuning instead of a dial. Don't want or need projection, a weather report, presets, a usb port, or an iPod charging station. There are some units out there that seemed ok, and were well-reviewed, but all the negative comments were about the directions, difficulty of set-up, multiple-function, unmarked buttons that needed to be pushed in particular combinations to get anything to work, and the complexity of changing settings. Sorry for the long rant, but I've been searching all day, and the 5 - 10 top-rated models all have this same issue! Any suggestions or solutions out there that don't cost $300+, or are only to be found used on ebay? Many thanks for your help! Marianne
