Inoperable cd tray on technics spl110 single disc cd player
The tray wasn't closing and when I applied very little pressure it closed but wouldn't open.
I can see s white "wing nut looking" part inside that operates the tray but it is not moving fluidly.
When tray is open and I apply slight pressure it will move in in tiny incremental movements and I can see it trying to function but will not function fully.
Please, can you help?
Re: inoperable cd tray on technics spl110 single disc cd...
Somehow the "gears" (side of tray has "teeth/gear" and wheel to the right of it has 'teeth/gear") which guided the cd tray were misaligned. With trepidation and fear of fully breaking it I lined up the tray and large wheeled gear to the right of tray.
At first I could get it to close to a certain point but it wouldn't go any further. I couldn't figure out what was stopping the closure but finally figured out the "teeth/gear needed further alignment.
During the repair found date CD player made was 1986 !!!! So I figured I'd just have to buy a new one. But it works like new and still sounds great
Go figure. Technics is a great brand.
What I saw as a white "wing nut looking" part had nothing to do repair. But during repair part of the front of repair dropped down and prevented closure. But there is a metal wire under tray which can be manipulated to control the piece which drops down.
Don't know how many Technics SLP110 are still out there but that's my story.

Hello If a disc has been put in the slot of the disc in play, Remove the disc, whose number is displayed, and press stop button. Because of light or noise, the changer has detected a disc in the lot of the disc being played, even though it is empty. Check whether there is a disc in the displayed slot. With front panel closed, hold down "STOP " button for atl least four seconds or more.
The DVD player jammed, that is why it is not opening.
To get it to open and close, you will have to unplug the player, then unscrew the screws around it. Take off the cover then you will have access to the disc tray. Then you can plug the player and press open, it will attempt to open but stop, then you can try to apply a little force in pushing the disc tray towards the open direction, it will sit properly and open up.
You can as well unscrew the disc tray and remove your disc, then you press the open button and sit the disc tray properly it will open freely and easily after then.
The reason the player is not reading the disc and showing no disc is either because the disc is not sitting properly on the lens from the disc tray, or the lens is weak or the lens is dirty.
To test if it is the disc tray, open the cover of the player with the appropriate screwdriver, place a disc directly on the tray and apply a little pressure on the tray, if it reads the disc, then it is the tray.
All you have to do is to adjust the disc tray and screw it tightly.
To test if the lens is weak, try several DVD disc on it,and test them also on another tested ok player, if it does not work on your player and works on other players, then the lens is weak.
to fix this, get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover and unscrew the disc tray.
You will gain access to the lens, carefully disconnect the lens and replace it with a new lens. then it will be ok.
To test if it is just that the lens is dirty, clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test a DVD to see if it will work.
I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.
Dear friend, my sony dvd drive tray opens and closes itself, it is mostly a problem related to hardware. in my case I removed the IDE Data cable connected to the dvd drive and reconnected it again. now my dvd drive works well, I think the problem was the IDE data cable, may be a loose contact.due to this loose cantact,a jung signal goes to the dvd drive, which opens and closes the tray frequently without our knowledge.
