A dirty CD player can lead to lower sound quality or read errors. Test with several discs first to make sure the problem is the CD player and not a damaged CD.

Step 1 – Check
Check there is no CD in the player. If the CD drive is tray-loaded, open the tray and disconnect the power cable without switching it off from the power button. This will then leave the tray open, allowing you access to the slot.
Blow away dust with a handheld air bulb. Squeeze the bulb to gently blow dust out of the slot and/or tray.
Assuming the dust blower didn’t fix the problem, it’s time to access the lens. Remove the lens cover. Select a lint-free cleaner and wipe a small amount of Isopropanol 90-91% Blend onto the lens. Rub the cloth gently over the lens. Keep wiping until the centre of the lens is shiny. If there is any sugar-based residue then use deionised water. Let dry before replacing the cover. Please Note: If you do this step, this will likely void your warranty. If this doesn’t work, you may want to consider more involved repairs.
