RCA rs 1285

Great site!! Smile

So my stereo ( RCA rs 1285) is starting to get on my nerves.  Been happy with it for a long time since I bought it ... until now.  It seems to have problems playing cd's.  It plays some cd's and some it just doesn't seem to be able to read.  And then some it won't play but if I open and close the tray to get it to try reading it again, it will eventually play it.  I'm wondering if there's something in there that might need "dusting" or something.  Basically, it just seems to be real picky these days on what cd's it feels like playing.  It's a 5 slot CD tray, and most of the time it will only play 1 in 5.  If I switch the cd's around, it will still end up playing the "favored" cd.

lol, am I making any sense!? 

 Any help would be appreciated!



Grab some rubbing alcohol and

Grab some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Dip the q-tip into the rubbing alcohol and GENTLY brush the laser lens. Then quickly use the other side to dab the lens dry(otherwise, I've found the alcohol will leave a blurry outline). That should solve the problem, otherwise it might need a new optical pickup.
