Re: Error 1 on CD Player
How good of care to you take of your CDs? Are they all pristine & clean?
If not, try cleaning them with some glass cleaner and a soft cotton cloth,
i.e an old T-shirt. The underside of the CD (where the recorded tracks
are) is actually protected with clear plastic. You can clean and polish
this surface to your heart's content with no worry about damaging the
recording. The recorded tracks are actually on a thin piece of foil under
the plastic. Lots of folks don't know this. Most scratches will polish
out very easily with car wax. Finally, there's always a possibility the
laser read head has a piece of crud on it. It's unlikely your CD player is
dead or out of adjustment, that's about the last possibility and a very
remote one at that.
