Hi Shahid - it is over 10yrs old and has never been connected to play DVDs. When input selection is pressed the CD option is no longer showing. When CD is inserted and play is pushed it immediately shows DVD and then NO DISC.
It gives the NO DISC msg as well.
Phew - at first it wouldn't play the cleaning disc - but eventually it did and we are now getting music from the elusive CDs.
Thankyou so much for your help.
