CD not working in ZX75

Just went camping for the first time in my Roo and the cd player doesn't work. We tried several cds and it looks like the the laser beam is going on and off. It says "No disk". Haven't tried the dvd but it probably will not work either. An ideas?

what kind of CD's were you trying to play in it - Burned CD's or one's you buy from the store?

May want to try a DVD to make sure it doesnt read any discs.

could just need to clean the laser eye as well.

The cds were store bought. Tried 3-4 of them. We did clean the laser beam and that didn't work either....

Did you try hitting the Mode Button to make sure it see's the CD in the player?

might be worth while to try a DVD and make sure it isnt reading at all.

If it doesnt read DVD's then I would think there is an issue with your player and you will need to take in for repair or replacement.

they are very easy to swap out so if a dealer is kinda far - you may be able to possibly swap it out yourself if they are willing to send you the parts.

well post back after you get the tv hooked up and test for the DVD's

probably will not work but by the off chance it does then you know it doesnt like your CD's at that point.

too bad it wasnt checked during the walk thru could it would have saved you some hassle unless you never got a walk thru because it was delivered straight to you.

Even if you have no TV hooked up, when you insert a DVD, give it a minute or so, the display will show a bit of info, like track/chapter number and a timer, this will indicate that it is reading correctly. You must have a DVD movie at home, try it. Worth a shot. If nothing appears on the display, or says cannot read it - something is wrong.

You will also get the audio of the movie. I use it all the time for musicals I have on DVD just to listen - not to watch, e.g. Leonard Cohen Live in London for example, it's a DVD but I only want to listen.

Good luck.

Do you have the manual for your unit?
Can you post a photo of the back of the TV to show your connections?

Yo Lou,
it doesnt play CD's was his original complaint and he has no TV hooked up so posting a picture of the back of the TV will do us no good.

Sorry, long weekend. I see that now.

I assume he is trying to play a regular CD and not a cd made of MP3 files.
MP3 files can take many minutes to load the directory before it can play them. The more files on the CD the longer the indexing takes. A full CD of MP3s can take 30 minutes or so.
