I bought the player in tescos on the 11th June 2011 . I just tried playing audio CDs And the player makes a whirring sound and a tic tic tic noise and the disk starts spinning, then it stops and starts spinning and whirring noises then once again it says no disk on the display.the player has done this for about a year, if I open and shut the disc drawer repeatedly ( maybe 8 or 10 times ) the machine makes a different noise and then started working tho over the last 2 months or so its increasingly hard to make it work.
Just doing that now , I have done it in the past tho and the problem still continuedthe player even has trouble registering the lens cleaner . sometimes !! .that just finished the cleaning cycle . I will try now . No change after 2 cleaning cycles, I tried a copied DVD, a shop bought DVD original and a original CD and still noise but no banana. Am I wasting yours and my time here. Shall I just chuck it in the sea.
OK, I see . a techie friend of mine said that class a laser products like DVDs etc , I should buy a cheap DVD player with cheap components are better than paying say £189.00 (like my Panasonic) . maybe he was right, tho I doubt I'd get a cheap player with div x capabilities cheap anyway . ok , in the sea with it then !!. Anyway cockmockery aside shahid , thank you for your help, I suspected that was the problem . have a goodun .
