How to open cd drawer

Oh my God, the answers I\'ve found on the net on how to get the CD drawer on a Crosley CR247 open are all nuts. Mine wouldn\'t open yesterday and I dismantled the whole damn thing to get the tray open, but that isn\'t necessary.

First of all my unit was making noise when I hit the eject button but the drawer wouldn\'t open. I knew there was no CD in the tray. Powering down and all the other foolish answers I found didn\'t work. There is no small round hole in the front to do a manual eject. Trying to pry the door open won\'t work and you\'ll just damage the unit. Here\'s what you need to do. And do it all GENTLY. There is no need to force anything!

Take a small, pointed steak knife out of your kitchen silverware drawer. This is all you\'ll need to get the drawer open. First let\'s identify where we\'re going to put that knife blade. The CD drawer says "CD RECORDER" and there are 3 lines on each side of that label. Where you\'re going to put that knife is below the 3 lines on the left, to the left area of those lines (see picture). This is the location of the drawer lock.

If you still hear noise when you push the eject simply push in the knife gently as you push the eject button. The drawer will open if you got the right spot.

If you hear no noise, or your unit is dead and you want the CD out, or if you\'re just afraid to stick the knife in the unit, unplug the unit. Gently push in on that spot until the drawer pops out a little bit. Now you can gently open the drawer by hand.

You can see the drive belt and pulleys (see pic). Mine was still intact but needs replaced. Here is also the info I got off of the back of the CD (see pic). Might not be able to find a replacement belt but at least you can get the thing open. Good luck.

Chances are the loading mechanism is out of alignment. Very hard to realign this mech. even the manufacturer just replaces the entire mechanism when repairing.

CD drawer will not open

There is a loading belt that fastened with a loading motor pulley, which gets the CD tray in and out. If this belt or the loading motro has trouble, the CD tray wont cole out, or load in properly. You have to check and find out which part is faulty. In normal cases, replacing the loading belt will rectify this problem. OK.

Cd drawer wont open cr248 songwriter

I have the Crosley CR247 which is the same except for style. I had same problem.
The CD drawer stuck and would not open. It made sounds like it was trying. I could not find any information on a solution, but from what I had been reading on other CD Drawer problems, it sounded to me like there had to be a manual emergency release somewhere. Could not see one anywhere on the unit, so I took a butter knife and inserted in the crack just below the tray. I slide the knife from left to right and just very gently ppressed around with it. When I had it over to the far left hand side moving it over just about an inch and a half to two inches, I just slid the knife from side to side and it opened. Sorry, I am not a mechanic or do not know how to fix things, so this is the best that I can do to explain where the emergency release is located. My little rubber belt drive looked good, so that wasnt the problem. I just opened and closed my drawere about five or six times before I felt that it was safe to stick CD in. I don't use it much, maybe that was the problem. The trick is getting the darn door open first so that you can see if it is the belt drive or not. Good Luck to anyone with the same problem.

My cd drawer will not open. It was suggested that a belt was slipping and I take it apart. How do I do this?

To be honest with you...this unit is quite complicated to be user serviceable.When to press the open button for the cd you hear the motor running.this unit uses gears to open the drawer.If you can hear the motor..and even if not...the drawer is not opening...please get it serviced by a qualified technician.If you try to repair this can easily cause more damage to the all means...DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THIS UNIT YOURSELF.I hope this was helpful....

My CD drawer will not open or close

I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Disc Drawers will not open

There maybe a CD stuck in the mechanism or it may need to be mechanically reset. Not much you can do except take for repairs.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
