Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

If you took it apart you might of voided the warranty. Try buying like a cd cleaner they sell them at bust buy and stuff and give that a try. If that doesn't work. Contact Stanton and Have them take a look at it for you.

I have a Stanton C.324 CD player. When I load a CD in the unit it reads "No Disc". What is the cause of this error?

It could be caused by a few things :
1) The CD was not burned correctly or did not complete. Try using an original CD and see if it works 2) Some MP3s when downloaded from online sources have a digital protection which prevents it from playing once burned into a CD. 3) The brand of CDRs you are using are not good. Try another brand
If all the above do not fix it, I recommend that you send the unit for warranty or repair. The optical laser could have been damaged.

When puting in disc dosent read disc

It most likely needs a new optical eye.When a CD doesn't get read by the player,that is a definite sign that the laser(optical eye) is bad.It will most likely cost around $100 to repair if it is not under warranty.I am not sure how old your component is or what it costed,but that's about it.The parts and labor may be around $80-$100,but if you also have to ship it somewhere,I would definitely say minimum $100.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

My stanton c324 i replaced the reader and its still showing no disc and the disc will not spin.

Make sure that the solder dot is removed from the new mechanism or it will not play. One of my C-324's stopped working at a school carnival and later I found out that some solder had dripped on the same spot and caused the mechanism to quit.

I hope this helps.

hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.
