most likely your CD player doesn't support the formatting of the CD you are trying to use.

you didn't mention if this happens to ALL the CDs you try to play or only for specific ones.
if you don't use a copied CD do you still have an issue?

You cannot fix the receiver unless you are a technician with the proper tools and circuit diagrams. I would think it worth the cost of repair though.

Good Luck

If your powered subwoofer could accept speaker level input, like, say a Klipsch KSW-series, you wouldn't need it.

It can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops near to you. You must have the borken belt in hand as sample. it will help you to choose the correct replacement. OK.

Unfortunately, the DVD laser diode is probably faulty. a separate laser diode is used for reading CDs so these still work. The laser unit will require replacing.

Before we throw in the towel, turn it off and exercise every control a lot of times throughout its range, particularly the Tape Selectors. Sometimes oxides will develop on seldom used controls and their 'normally closed' contacts will not pass a signal.

The "no disc" message is a generic one indicating that the disc couldd not be read. This can be caused by a dirty lens (most common) or faulty optics. If you can gain access to the optics, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, then the optics probably have failed and need to be replaced.

Check the headphone socket if it cuts out the speakers (normal use) when you plug the headphones in. If it doesn't and you have a switch to switch off the speakers when listening to headphones, check the switch. It may be physical damage or dirt causing the problem, or even loose soldering on the headphone socket. But the fact that headphones work shows the main amp is working. Also make certain the speakers are connected properly.

In this player the region is hard-coded in the firmware, it cannot be changed by inputting some commands, a new firmware must be loaded.To my knowledge there are no region-free firmwares for this player.
