My CD player is experiencing almost exactly the same problem as above. Thing is, my system plays some CD's perfectly, yet others aren't recognized in the slightest way (or skip badly). The unrecognized CD's aren't CDR's, they are original copies.
Although, lately I have been using CDR's in my system, could these have damaged my system at all?
I almost forgot to mention that all the CD's that WON'T play in my system play in an another system of mine as well as other peoples flawlessly.
Hopefully, someone out there can come up with some answers for this, if so, thanx in advance!!
Yep, that's exactly what's goin' down. As I explained in my last post, this only occurs with SOME CD's and not others. It's as though the CD player is desperately looking for data on the discs. When it fails to do so, the 'clicking sound' then commences.
If the problem IS the 'lens focuser', what could have possibly caused it to become damaged? What is generally the procedure of repairing it? Is repairing it costly?
I almost forgot to mention that when the CD player hasn't been used for a while, the problem is much worse than when it is used on a more regular basis.
Try to clean the lense with a 70% alcohol dipped Q-tip carefully.
You can also clean the non-playing CDs with water and baking powder tooth paste. Don't clean them in a circular fashion with a cloth. Just gently with the tooth paste and water.
If that doesn't work, you can take it to get it fixed with a new CD mechanism probably - but you could probably buy a better sounding one now like the Denon-Mission one, or the NAD L70, or even the Linn Classik (pricy but the best sounding mini on the market).
My Denon DN2000 dual cd players won't play my cd-r's.I use to use Memorex & Maxell cd-r's w/ no problem; ever since I started using TDK cd-r's, my system plays them for a while then stops or doesn't read them @ all.I cleaned the Denon system w/ lens cleaner w/ no luck.Could it be that my TDK's are "crap" cd-r's or maybe my cd players are going bad? Please help me out! It's driving me NUTS!
Same Prob as Marky Mark Marcus and FlyByNature, but... My Magnavox 392C Mini Hi-Fi system reads "No Disc" much more often on dubbed discs such as those from a Speakers' Conference, less often on my store-bought music discs... But still often enough to be annoying. There is no clicking noise, however.
FlyBY Nature ... how much did it cost for you to get yours repaireD? I'm hopeful i might be able to get an old boombox of mine fixed up. if it doesn't cost too much.
People, I had a very funny problem. My SAMSUNG cassete+CD player does not play non-original CDs. I tried to burn on several different CD-Rs like TDK, Verbatim, Princo, Memorex..., used different CD burning software and that player tells me that there is no CD in the drive! But there is absolutely no problem with oriiginal Audio CDs. Can you please tell me what's wrong with that thing here?
how old is your samsung? many older cd players cannot read cd-r's. did anyone have their cd player repaired? if so, about how much was it? my phillips-magnavox cd player stopped in the middle of a song over a year ago. after that it always came up "no disc" for all cds. I was using sony cd-r's at the time, so I don't use them anymore just incase (plus I had other problems with them and I hate the sony company). I had an old rca stereo that I was using, but that kind of died this morning (it is over 10 years old). I'm planning to take apart my magnavox later today to look at the inside - hopefully its just really dirty or something because I really hate the look of new cd players and can't exactly afford one right now. my brother's rca also just stopped a few months ago. maybe they just aren't making them as good anymore.
Im Using SONY LBT-N555AVK,When I Insert CD-R Disc,It Says No Disc (But Sometime It Play But It Will Skip And Really Annoying),It Have No Problem With Original Disc,I Have Cleaned The Laser And Just Turning The Laser Motor,It Got Better But Still Skipping!!!
I have a Memorex M4221 that won't play cds anymore. I can hear the laser moving but the motor won't turn the cd.
Please help if you can, I make team announcement cds for the local high school, every one i burn plays perfect in any cd player home car whatever, but sometimes the school player will read no disk when inserted, and other times it will read and play fine, once it recognizes the cd it plays it perfect, is there anything i can try to remedy this issue before tonights game thanks so much
I have an odd situation, My mother gave me a small boombox type CD/Cassette/AM/FM Radio that her mother gave her, its a few years old, but not ancient. everything works fine except that when you insert a disk it says No Disk... I tried to use a Lens cleaner (the audio CD things) and it played all the audio on that just fine, but tried a regular Audio CD again and ND came up on the display.
I mentioned this to my husband and he said he has the same problem with his Philips Magnavox 3 CD Changer so in order to listen to CDs we have to use our DVD player and use the Auxiliary option on the stereo

I have an older JVC 6 disc changer that is now being selective as to what cds it recognizes. 3doors down and bruce springsteen are no problem excellent, The Wall and ZZTop it wont even recognize there is a disc there. old player and old disc Im sure they have been played before on this changer. The discs play fine on my pc. Any Ideas?
The problem here guys is that any CD player will eventually lose its ability to read CDs. No offense to the OP or anyone, but cheap CDPs like a Memorex is not likely to last much beyond the warranty. I would suggest getting something a little more upscale if it's within your budget.
