Hello, I have a portable Sony sport CD player. I dropped it recently, and it seems like there is a problem with the lens moving thing. I put a CD in, and it says "no disc" and makes the noises as though it is searching for a disc. I tried cleaning the lens to no avail, so don't suggest that. I actually think the lens may have become misaligned or something. Any suggestions?

When in doubt, get a bigger drill. My advice would be to open it up and try to tinker with it, CAREFULLY. If not, you might have to w/o that sucker and get a new one. It may be that the lens is misaligned, so when you open it up, check that specifically. Also look if the lens is damaged inside or not.

Well guys, I hate to break the bad news, but by extremely technical I was hoping that I would get an answer from someone who worked with CD players and not someone who knew nothing beyond how to work it and how to think hypothetically and simplistically [as the lecture continues ...]. However, on a positive note (if anyone cares ) I did manage to find out that one of the lens mounts had broken and that was the only problem. I've just got to get inside it and glue it back on, hopefully.

On a more serious note, SSTjumbo, just be very careful when working in and around the laser/lens assy. If you have a magnification workstation, use it--because the last thing you want to do is get your skin oils on the lens...
