i have a pioneer dvd player and have been very impressed at its usefulness and performance, but as of late i have become a little frustrated...it won't read back any audio cd's. i have no problems playing any dvd's at all, nor have i ever...i hadn't had a problem until recently about playing audio cd's...whether it is a regular cd or a cdr it comes up no read...is there anything i can do that might fix the problem? anything short of taking it to a service or buying a new player? any suggestions would be appreciated...thanks for your time.

My brother has this machine so I have had the opportunity to fool with it to a small degree. Your problem is interesting because it is the first type of this problem that I have read. I am not a technician but here is my theory.

This player along with many other brands use a DUAL LASER PICK-UP; one for CDs and the other for DVDs. The only thing I could think of is that laser for the CDs has kicked the bucket. Perhaps contacting Pioneer might give you the answer you are looking for.

I too have the DV525 for 3 years now. I must say,and have
mentioned numerous times on this forum that it is a very
reliable piece of appliance from Pioneer. That's why I have
been bypassing the urge to upgrade to new models with
progressive scan,playing SACD and what have you.

I only make use of it's main function and that is strictly
for DVD viewing. For CDs I have a separate CD player,in this
way the Pioneer is not overworked. I quite often clean it with lens cleaner and hopefully it will last me a couple
more years.

Perhaps you should send yours for a checkup JonDW, I would.
