Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further! Bought this in store and used it right away on my car CD player, which was stuttering then stopping. It told me to move to Track 2 (first in English, with an American accent, then in German) then on the signal to go to Track 9, and played unobjectionable music (and a further message in German) while I was waiting. It told me it had finished - in French, which fortunately I understand. But it now works perfectly again. If your player won't play at all I can't see this working, but if it is stuttering or jumping I think it's a great solution at a very reasonable price. And very international!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product! Bought it today in-store and all I can say is it works wonders :) The CD player in my dad's car is fully working again, reading many discs we've thrown at it. All it needed was a good clean (after a good 15 years of collecting dust!.) If your CDs are skipping or not playing at all then don't hesitate to give this a go. It even seems to have improved the sound quality, making the sound more clear. Couldn't be more satisfied :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Car CD player refused to play discs - those that it did play sounded terrible. Put this CD cleaner in, followed simple audio instructions and job done. CD player now working brilliantly with all discs....impressive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the trick Used it on a Bose Wave front-loader which was skipping and stopping when playing CD's. I got the initial instructions loud and clear but when I moved to the cleaning process (Track 2) it skipped and jammed. Gave a good squirt of Maplins Contact Cleaner through the loading slot (having turned off the power first!) then tried the disc again and it worked perfectly. Did the trick for me and saved sending it back to Bose for repair (to be fair, it was their suggestion!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this an hour ago. No messing with swabs and liquids. Just put the disc into the player and listen to the simple instructions. I am now playing previously unplayable cds on my ressurected Bose cd player. If you're experiencing playback problems then the Maplin CD Laser Lens Cleaner is well worth trying. Well recommended and inexpensive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Having read at great length other reviews I was optomistic. Unfortunately it did not perform well. CD's still hiccup when first played although do admit there is a 'slight' improvement. Once passed the initial stage it will play faultlessly until the player is closed down for a time, then can guarantee the same process has to be gone thru again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens Cleaner!!! I bought this as a replacement for my previous CD lens cleaning disc as I listen to CDs a great deal. This product is super easy to use and very effective as well as very durable. I would recommend it to any CD Listener.

Will this product get jammed in side  loading Imac

Asked by: some one
Yes there is a high probability it will jam and break the drive. Slot-loading drives have tighter tolerances than tray-loading drives, cleaner discs such as this with the little brushes are usually only intended for tray-loading drives.

Would you recommend this for pioneer cdjs ie front loaders? If not, is there another product that is suitable? thanks

Asked by: mike
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

Sorry my question came up oddly - try again - Is this suitable for cleaning my computer head which is a vertical slot on the side of my mac?

Asked by: ruru51
