Why Does My CD Player Keep Ejecting the Disc?

By Staff WriterLast Updated Apr 11, 2020 8:02:11 AM ET

CD players sometimes eject discs without playing them because the CD is not the proper format for the machine, there is dust in the machine, the CD player's laser is defective or the disc has not been inserted correctly. If a disc is inserted upside down or while another disc is already in the machine, the player will reject it.
