Also, it basically still works -- just likes to freeze up now and then, mostly toward the end of longer DVDs.

As for CD players, I actually have 6 of them, none of which is fully operational. I bought the one in question because I got tired of the other ones sort of working some of the time, or not working at all (the one in my computer). Now I'm back to using one of the old ones (a cheap boom box) and crossing my fingers that it keeps working for the full length of the CD.

This should probably be in the "First World Problems" thread -- I've been spoiled by being able to listen to any music I want any time I want. I would have really been jonesing 100 years ago.

Last the inside with canned air. I have fixed couple that way

I will try that. I don't have any canned air at home, but this is a small portable CD player (Sony "Discman") that I can easily take to work, and at work we have not only canned air, but high-pressure air hoses.

Of course I'll try the canned air first. I'll also try cleaning the lens with a bit of alcohol. If those things don't help, the damn CD player deserves whatever it gets.

This is what I get for trying to post on my phone...of course, I meant blast.

It sure fixed the CD player in my old car and it also fixed the drive in my old laptop. There might just be a little something stuck in there that is keeping the disc from being read.

It's worth a try.

Probably a Russian hack.

I was going to blame Trump but that's also an option.

Water, air, media, gas?

RE: Ranting corner
Is there a puddle? Work your way from the puddle to the water source. Feel up the pipes until they feel dry. You should be able to pinpoint the leak this way.
