HI. this is optical lens assembly failuer. the optical lens is burned out, in return, inducing the (no CD) message. simply replacing the optical lens assembly will fix this issue.

SOURCE: Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.

I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help

How do I hack my Region 1 DVD player so I can play DVDs from other regions?

Some Koss players are locked to only one region/zone so this might not work. Try this.

  2. Press MENU
  3. Press 1, 6, 7, 1, 9
  4. A menu should pop up
  5. Press OK
  6. Press the button for the desired RC (0=code free)
  7. Exit menu

I have purchased a vintage magnovox AZ9855 boombox .tape player and radio work fine. CD player displays DEF and doesn't respond at all .turning off and on at times says start then DEF.

If a CD player doesn't work there isn't much the user can do - putting in a disc the mechanism should be heard to spin; if it doesn't spin the process will go no further and it is a task for the repair shop.

If the disc does spin the laser will try to read the disc and if it fails it will be worth cleaning the lens but again if that doesn't work the repair shop beckons.
I have never seen the DEF message and don't know what it means unless it is an abbreviation of defective...

DVD Player turns on spins says reading but there is no picture or sound.

I had same problem and once left the player on for 3 weeks (left for vacation) and it still never worked. Finally had to dissassemble body of player to get dvd out. There appears to be no solution to this problem. I have called it quits and this cheap piece of junk is now in the trash. Koss will never be on my list of best buys.
