CD Player Tray Spins Continuously With or Without Disk

Hello, I just recently purchased this Stereo System and I am experiencing difficulties with the cd player in it. Everything else works perfectly fine except for the when you press the "CD" button, it starts spinning the tray and never stops. It freezes the system and you cannot switch back to other modes without resetting. The tray will also not open. The CD Player responds the same way when operating from the remote. Please share any tips or advice that you might have for repairing this problem, thank you.

Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck

I agree with techman. If the machine is new, it will be covered under warranty. Just take it back to the store.

Why won't a cd disc that I "burned" play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System?

Try cleaning the lazer lens in the Panasonic cd player. Dust can cause it not to read the disk.

CD tray now operates perfect after belts replaced, but won't read CD's

Try 1st: You can take a q-tip dipped in alcohol (not dripping), rub the lens and gently blow it off with canned air. This will remove dust from under the lens as well. I don't recommend "lens cleaner CD's" that you can purchase as they sometimes rip of the lens.

Try 2nd: If the CD does not spin up to the proper speed, it is the motor that spins the disk. This can be temporarily fixed by disconnecting the motor wires and using a 9 volt battery to spin the motor in each direction. The trick is to reverse the direction while it is still turning in the opposite direction. This will hopefully burn off the carbon and debris in the motor contacts.

My 5 Disk CD player doesn't work. It wont read any kind of CD. The radio and Tape Decks still work though. How can I fix the CD player.

Hello Alison hi, we need to check two parts to see which is the problem section why your player wont read.

  1. Does your CD spins normally, check your player if the cd spins normally, if you can see the disk spinning, take note of the spin, is it to slow? An abnormal disk spin has problems with its spindle motor assembly.
  2. Does your CD spins and then slow down to a stops, did not read the disk. This is caused by two things, FIRST: your CD player lens needs cleaning, you can buy a CD lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, SECOND: The lens has degraded or worn out due to use and time, this needs a replacement lens assembly.
This things are way beyond a normal user, I suggest you send it for service. Sorry, there are no user serviceable parts here.

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!

I have a similar stereo system and accidentally put two CD's in one tray and it got stuck and could not open. What I did was unplug everything from the unit and took off the side panel. After some careful fiddling I got it to open. You could try something like that.
