Re: CD door won't open

New CDs may have some rough spots around the inner and outer edges. If such a CD is used, this unit may reject the CD. To remove these rough spots, rub the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.

CD Door will not open

There is a problem with the device itself...what I would recommend you to do is to return it from the store you purchase it...there isnt anything phisycally you can do about the problem you are is the device itself that is defective.

I have a panasonic sa ak15 stereo system, the five cd trays have cds in them, i pressed the cd open button but cds don`t come out, the system screen says change, what could be the problem?

The door loader motor isn't working. Sometimes the plastic tray warps and hangs a bit. Mine still hangs, but I can give it a push to close. If you can see the door trying to open you can help it open but you have to be quick or you have to press the open button more that once.

The cd player will not open when you press the open close button

unfortunatly the mechanism is jammed up for one reason or the other reason #1 a cd is stuck inside #2 the gear just wore out and or it was forced closed by hand instead of pushing the eject/load can try to gently pry this door open while pressing open/eject button that works 40% of the time..if it does not work? it can then be deemed broken out of order.

it's worth a shot trying to pry it open but beware this could either work or really destroy the door/mech/player comes down to this "do you feel lucky" sadly? that's where we're at with this one.

The CD tray on my Sony MHC-RX100AV system won't stay closed. after i power up the unit the door opens a few moments later. i'll try to close it, but it opens again. what's worse is after i turn the power...

hey dude, i have the exact problem. I took the black wraparound cover off and looked inside and turns out the problem is the belt used to open and close the door. if it is old and worn, chances are it doesn't have enough elasticity to help the rotating parts rotate to open and close the door the whole way.
If your door is open when you remove the cover, you'll see the belt and door-opening mechanism right in the middle of the unit when you look down into it.

the belt looks to be about 8" in circumference, and i have a rubber band holding things in place until i can get to the store and get a new one.
hopefully you figured this out without buying a new stereo

Door on left side wont open

not much you can do about this. I've had mine apart and it seems the belt (rubber band-like) are weak or stretched. This is a weak spot on this unit.
