Cd tray not staying closed

When I put in a cd in my Memorex MKS5001 player the tray will not stay closed to play the cd, it just opens back up. I do not see any foreign object in the track of tray that might be keeping it from staying close. How can I tell if the laser / cd reader is working?

    Thanks Electech1,



    I had tried that before and it did not work but this time it did. What could have cause my problem with the tray not staying close even if it didn't have a cd in it. I want to try to prevent this from happening again. It seemed like the open / close button was out of sync.



    My family and I really enjoy our Karakoe player.



    Again thanks and God Bless you

Gently push the cd door back in while pushing the door closed button , untill it closes if it still comes out then the cd laser mechanism is not lifting or something else has happened , then it will need to be tested to determine the exact cause

    the door closes but NOT strong enough to LIFT the LASER MECHANISM which the cd sets on when spinning. this could be the cause of a slipping belt or weakening motor

Place a flatblade screwdriver in the lower lip of the drawer, and manually force the tray out. It is okay to pull, you won't break the tray. It rides on a straight rail gear. After pulling on it, it should eject normally, but stay open. If it closes right away, there must be some blockage within the case. Using a flashlight, check to make sure no foreign object is blocking the tray. If the tray stays open, that is a good sign. Push it in and see if it closes on its own. Try pushing the button to eject. If the tray does not come out, take it in for service. If it comes out, perhaps the problem is solved.

My RCA Stereo system 5 disc cd drawer keeps opening. When I put a cd in it, the unit opens and keeps opening. It only stays closed when I turn off the unit and manually push it closed. What could be...


These units are actually nice units. There is a "loading belt" inside that controls the tray movement as well as the final "load" of the mechism into the play position. If the load does not complete, the unit will "eject" or open up. This is most often cured by replacing the loading belt. This is a common problem with any rubber component. As it ages, it gets a little slippery and thus will not have the grip to complete the loading sequence. The belt for this will run about $5.

Cd tray wont close, cds wont play


Sounds like you probably have a stretched belt on the load motor. Unplug the unit and remove the case which will expose the load motor. Plug in and turn on and press tray in button. You should hear the motor run and if you can see the belt you should see it slipping. Some belts are easy to change, and some are next to impossible. If you have to disassemble anything be sure that you note the position of everything as the timing of the tray, door, laser and most items in the unit is very critical. Let me know if you need more help.

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...


I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

CD player cover/door won't stay closed


The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4


I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.

Cd player keeps opening with cd in it


Some small item would appear to be obstructing complete closure
With the drawer open take a good look in side.
Also near the  open button you  should see a small pin hole[sometime on the back of the unit]
 This is the emergency eject device in case you get a jam and is operated with the end of a paper clip.
give it a poke with the drawer open  then again closed
See what happens
