Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How old is the CD-Radio-Cassette player in question?

Is it powered off of batteries, or only from the mains ?

Does the CD playing function work at all?

Unplug it from the power, while it is On, sharply and suddenly.

Leave it unplugged for at least several hours or overnight. See if that reset gets it working.
