CD tray won't open and motor running

The CD tray would never open, but I only wanted to use the radio. Whenever the power cord is plugged in, I hear a motor running. The radio works fine, but how do I stop the motor? The unit is out of waranty now. I couldn't find the manual on Sam's or any place else.

Re: CD tray won't open and motor running

I know this is an old post but I saw it through google, because I had the same problem. I ended up tearing the CD door off and was able to look in and see that one of the cds was stuck. The player was trying to play disc 1 but had pulled disc 2 in under neith and it was stuck, causing the issue. As soon as I pulled disc 2 out the system works great.

Can't get CD player too open have turned off and on and still won't open can hear the motor trying

I have had this problem. It might be a rubber belt that has broken or become loose. For now you may be able to open the tray by bending the tip of a paper clip and *gently* pulling the door out while the motor is running. The only way to really tell what is wrong with the tray is to take apart the CD player. If you do this, be careful! the laser lens emits radiation that is not good for you. Only take it apart if you know what you are doing

Sharp CD-BA2100, when I turn it on it starts making a clicking sound and if set to tape one or tape two, it shows "error". When set to "cd" it comes up with error 0306 and the cd tray...

the rubber rope which conect the motor to a small gears to open the cd was cut due to long using ... this sound of clicking coz the small motor is running and its not attached to anything ... its a small rounded rubber rope ..the bad news is you have to break some plastic stuff to reach the motor in the repair depot they change the whole upper part so it costs alot ... but if you can reach it it will work perfect as its new.

I have a rca rs 2663 stereo, The cd tray will not open or play cd's anymore. Could you please help

It two things can cause this:-
The motor is damaged ( you can listed closely to hear if the door motor runs when you try to open the tray.
Or The belt that takes power from motor to open mechanism is damaged.

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.


Thanks for using FixYa

My rca rs 2657 cd changer is stuck. door will not open. any ideas how to correct?

If you hit the open button and you hear a sound like a motor running than it is most likely a belt or connection that physically opens the tray. You'll have to take it apart, locate the cd player and check from there. If no sound of a motor running when the button is pushed then the motor is probably bad.

This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.
