    ok..on some models, you can stick a thin toothpick, or the opened end of a paper clip in a small hole along the surface, and while pressing the button to open, gently pull on that clip and it should open up..

Most CD's have a small hole in the front of the drawer cover. This hole can be used to open the drawer, straighten out a large paper clip (wire style). About 2" should be enough! Put he paper clip end thru the hole perpendicular to the front (straight in). You will feel resistance at about 1/2" to 1", pressing firmly (don't jam it in), the drawer will start to open as you press the right place, gently pull the drawer open. If something is jammed inside, removal and possible replacement may be required. If you don't feel confident in opening the case, don't!

Denon CD Player Drawer won't open


This problem can be due to a defect in the player mechanism or binding in the drawer travel path. You may be able to find and correct the binding problem.

The CD drawer on a JVC EL-E3 CD Player fails to open/close. The CD fails to play when I physically close the drawer. The drawer does not close completely and needs an extra push to close it.


Sounds like the alignment is off. By physically pushing the drawer.
There is a motor on the side of the drawer that should control the drawer by pushing a piece of plastic back and forth. This piece can shift if pressed to hard. In the back of the drawer are the rods that control the top to drop. These need to be aligned with the side motor.

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.

CD drawer will not open or close


Hi, The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.

CD drawer stuck, then won't close


1. Most of the player drawer fixed over the chasis for a rigid support
2. try to remove the drawer safely without damagind the chasis and drive mechanism
3. there might be some shaft jam.
4. Look for the thread. how does the player drawer moves in and out
5. there may be some sensors to sense the door close/open. if it is jammed then open/close function cannot be done. why because this problem occurs
6. unwear the mechanism read the mechanism moving technique. see which has got jammed.
7. if you feel too risky then
8.contact service centre... all the best

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