    This happened before and I tried a lens tray cleaner disc which didn't do much so I took it apart and swabbed the lens with alcohol which solved the problem. It's now reoccurred and that didn't help this time. It had been working fine although I hadn't used it for a couple weeks and when I tried to play a new Thunderball remaster I just bought it wouldn't read. Old or new discs, cdrs or factory recorded it seems random and about 50%. Thunderball and others play on a cheap Discman.

    I also have a Sony RCDW3 player/recorder and it won't play on the player side but will on the recorder side. I had to clean the lenses and grease the trays and change the belts on that one, too. I really liked that 302 which was made in Japan. The RCDW3 was made in China and doesn't have the quality feel of the other.

    Could just be the laser has worn out - it happens.

    The more hi-quality units have replaceable laser mechanisms - have you tried to find out its part number and Googled for a replacement module?
