Customer Question

I have inherited a VST 6(C?)11 stereo.
It has never been much used.
Allits other parts are functional but the CD player insists no disc is loaded whenit is.
I suspect that there is some mechanical indicator to the rest of the machine which I simply can't find.
Is there?
I have no electronic knowledge so please advise as to an idiot.

Hi there,
If the CD player is not seeing any discs, then the reading lens may be dusty.
Try running a cleaning disc in it a few times, or carefully wipe the lens.
If that doesn't help, then either the laser is faulty or the motor is faulty and is not spinning the disc fast enough.
