I have the same trouble right now with one someone just gave me. There are two small belts inside that need to be replaced. One drives the the door and the other moves the laser mechanism (the "sled") back and forth along the CD. They are both square belts, 0.057 inches thick and 4.0 inches inside circumference. I get most of my belts from a company called MAT electronics. Their part number for a suitable replacement belt is SBM4.0 and they're 50 cents each (but you gotta buy a minimum of 10 and they have a $25 minimum order). A company called PRB makes a belt SCQ4.0 that you can look for online. (I just did a Google search and found a bunch of vendors. Be prepared to pay a few bucks each for those belts, though!) The belt that drives the door is hard to get to; it means taking the whole thing apart and removing some plastic parts, but it can be done. It might be easier just to replace the CD player. But if you're the type who's comfortable with a screwdriver, has some patience and enjoys a challenge, it's a good project for a couple of hours.

The basic problem is that the drive mechanism has failed. The problem with CD ejection can be caused by binding in the tray or a weakened ejection motor

Cd door wont open

Could be just a broken belt. If it is measure it (in MM) and then put that and "CD/Cassette drive belt" into google. Don't worry if it's 5mm bigger or smaller it should still work.

XL-MC2000BK won't do anything

I had the same problem - I sent the piece of junk back. In the manual, it tells you to disconnect and reconnect the AC power cord - that didn't work and after writing JVC, I didn't hear back, so the unit goes back. What a piece of crap.
