It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.

There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....

SOURCE: DVD player not working

It could be that the DVD player has a bad home switch in the dvd player or that it doesn't know that the door is closed. I have run into similar situations with CD Players years ago. Also keep in mind to unplug unit and let sit for 1 minute to let microprocessor reset. Let me know if that helps. Thank you ...Jay

Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.

Hitachi ax-m71 cd door won't stay closed. Unable


if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.

Sony dav-dz555k home theatre system-dvd tray keeps opening and closing, wont read disc at all. have to manually push tray closed and change setting from dvd to something else to stop it.


You seem to be having a door sensor problem. When the CD tray closes a small switch under the loading tray shorts telling the microprocessor the door is closed and to stop the motor (either way when it opens or when it closes). A malfunction in this switch causes this symptom.

Proline DAB 360 digital radio/CD player. The CD door will not close. The catch is out of alignment between the door & the body of the radio/CD.


You will need somebody that is good with mechanical issues or a tv tech to do the job for you, setting the timing can be tricky and requires skills to deal with it.

CD jammed inside player


Remover the player's cover. That will give you access to the player's internals and therefore also the CDs. That is the only way to go about a problem like the one you are facing.

Disconnect the player from the mains supply before doing this.

Good luck.

Most of the time these radios with the displays that move up/down have a ribbon cable that may go bad and cause funny types of problems. I can not say for certain what is causing your problem withour putting it on a test bench and troubleshooting it with the proper equipment. It may also be a swtich the detects when the display has reached its open position. If the switch is bad, it may just close right back up again.

But the ribbon cable is a good start, since it gets some wear and tear every time you turn on the radio.

Hi dr dray
Your player has a CDM12.1 laser transport fitted to it. They suffer a couple of problems that can be fixed that stop em from working so well. If you are handy with a screwdriver, then I can talk you through it.
