Sony MegaStorage CDP-CX355 - grinding noise, then message 'table error'

I own one of these units, and when I turned it on, it gave me a grinding noise, then just stopped.  The table where you place the CD's did start to rotate twice before this growling noise (think of gears grinding).  Can't get it to read a CD.  Any ideas?

Re: Sony MegaStorage CDP-CX355 - grinding noise, then message 'table error'

Please try the following: 


  1. Unplug the power cord and let the unit sit for a couple of minutes, then reconnect the power back to the unit.
  2. If the disc still will not play, depending on the location of your CD player, the issue can also be caused by condensation. Open the disc compartment and let the unit sit for about one hour to allow any condensation to dissipate.
  3. If the unit does not play any of the discs, the laser pick up may be dirty. CD/DVD player lens cleaners are not recommended. These lenses should be cleaned by a factory-trained technician only.
  4. If the grinding noise persists, service may be required.
