Sony SCD-1 Player NO DISC DETECT


AFTER I HEAR ONE OR TWO CDS O SACDS, MY SONY SCD-1 DOES NOT DETECT ANY DISC (CD OR SACD). I HAVE TO TURN OFF THE PLAYER, WAIT SEVERAL MINUTES AND TRY AGAIN. SOMETIMES IT WORKS. MAY SOMEBODY HELP ME (I AM LIVING OUT THE STATES). I WILL APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

lots of info about this on audioasylum.com
Thats why I dont buy Sony SCD1,because of reliabilty
its supposed to be a good unit.Email Richard Kern, Eldon
agon name.He can probably tell you whats wrong.
If it is still under the 5 year warranty, Sony will fix at no charge. If not under warranty it will cost about $240 I think. I had the same problem after buy mine from someone on Audiogon. Sony replaces the sled motor and some other things. It has worked perfectly ever since. I don't know why they had these problems, but this is still a fantastic player. I would just get it fixed and would not think about getting rid of it. I love mine!
You can go over to the AudioAsylum and do a search. Theres alot of info on this subject. My 777ES had the same problem. I lightly wiped the lens with a dry swab at it fixed the problem. Good luck!
I had this issue with a Denon DVD5910 and after I had returned it I finnally got a good answer from a Denon service tech. He stated it was s "disc read error" and it would require a re-alignment of the laser. Sounds like you need to send it in. You may try as mrderrick did and maybe blow some canned air at the lens.
