    CD Player saying 'no disc" after cleaning laser.

    I've just bought a Rotel CD-991 and it frequently skipped (or at least lost sound for a moment) during playback. It did it at some point with almost every disc I tried although all discs played perfectly for 99+% of the time. Replaying a track after a skip would not produce a skip at the original skip point so I suppose the fault lay in the CD player rather than in the discs.

    Being an intrepid sort, I today took the top of the case off and-cleaned the laser lens with a camera lens-brush (no fluids) and now, whenever I insert a disc, it says 'No disc'.

    When I insert a CD, the tray closes and the disc rotates about 90 degrees clockwise, then pauses for a moment, then moves another 45 degrees clockwise.

    The display then shows the 'No disc' message.

    I've done this in a darkened room and at no stage does the laser flash.

    Woe is very much me.

    Can anyone help?

    If you haven't called Rotel yet then that is my recommendation. Sounds like touching the lens has perhaps caused a misalignment. Best of luck!

    You may have a servo or motor issue. Whenever I put a disc in it spins so it an be read for title and other pertinent info. The fact your only rotates a partial rotation seems more of an issue than the laser.
