The lazer unit won't raise up.

When I insert a disc and close the disc drawer the lazer unit seems to be jamming. And the disc won't play in any of the five slots. I have checked the gear alinment and it is fine. What should I do?

Re: The lazer unit won't raise up.

Have you checked to see if the units laser assy is returning to home and when its trying to read a disc, is the lens moving up and down , trying to focus? Have you tryed to clean the laser lens? If you have done all this then your units most likly going to need a laser assy or a servo alighnment. If it has to go into A shop for repair, Im afraid it may not be worth it. GOOD lUCK

Why does my yahama cdc-505 cd changer not play cd, or change tracks

This is a result of the deck kicking out you disc as an unacceptable media. This usually means that it can not read the data on the disc or the necessary TOC (Table of Contents).
The other possibility is that your draw in detection switch has gone bad and when the processor- control type, tries to load a tray or close the drawer it is not getting the door closed signal. Depending on how the unit is programmed it might just sit there and do nothing or in your case throw the disc back out.
It is kind of telling you it wants to go see a Technician.
It could also be a bad belt that loads the Pickup assembly- it might be good enough to move the drawer in and out but the Pickup assembly needs more torque and it might not be there.

What does U1 mean when it appears on the pioneer cld v860 display window and the disc won't play?

It sounds like buy your details, That i will compliment you on, Are to the point not like some other people asking questions on hear, That the lazer is shot, End not reading the info off of the disc any more, It is verry costly to have it repaired, Just look for a different one, I have got good used ones for friends of mine for $7 to $30 at the most, From thrift stores or privately, Hope this helps you out.

I have a cdc 675 CD changer, When I close the draw it stays close about 10 seconds, the display reads "open" and it opens back up whether there are discs in it or not

It's reporting that it (correctly or incorrectly) detected that the drawer has not fully "closed", i.e., it thinks that there was a "jam" while the drawer was sliding towards the "closed" position.

This sounds (pun intended) like you need to take the unit to a qualified audio/video technician, to trouble-shoot, and maybe check the "alignment" of the drive-tray.

Jammed tray

Hi there, had a similar problem.
This unit is easy to open. the four screws on the sides and two i think on the back. When it is open you will have access to the discs in the machine. the last disc will probably be jammed between the facia and the caddy and will be impeding the carousel mechanism, once removed you should check the functions starting with eject, and again to cycle, load disc position 1 insert disc and check. this player i think rotated the disc on loading to a set position, would have to open one to check. hopefully the carousel is not out of sync and all is well.

To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.
