I bought this new system two days ago and I never managed to open the CD tray since.
The disply shows "Open" and the system really tries to open the tray two to three times, but it will not open.
I turned everything off by the plug several times and waited a couple of minutes until the next go.
Everything else works perfect.
Do I have to "unlock" the tray in some way or is it a known technical malfunction?
Any help is much appreciated

Re: CD tray doesn't open
If the unit actually tries to open but does not, it is not locked. a locked unit does not even try to open. it sound like a mechanical misalignment. take it back to get a new one, since it's only 2 days old.

This problem is easily repaired! The belt that drives the mechanism is worn out (relaxed) and slides on the motor pulley. Just open the device (from the bottom and then drag the body up by removing the edges). You have to put a new belt section ø 35 mm 1 mm and the unit will work again. (hello from France)
first basic step if u still haven't tried this yet is to turn the power button off then unplug the appliance then plug it again and turn the on the power button for the compact disc unit to initialized its program on its CPU and memory devices.
second step: if you can manage to open u'r mini component, check the mechanical moving parts of cd rack if there's any broken parts or missing parts.
third; if you still have the remote control try using it.
4rth; don't forcibly close it manually it will just worsen the problem. hope this tips help ;-)
If you had any cds inside, you can open the case and see whether there's any cd jammed, with the power switch off! If you didn't have any cds inside, open the case anyway and check if the tray opens or not!!!
If you turn it off at the mains, wait a few seconds then turn it back on. As soon as you turn the power on, try and press the button for the tray to open.
If this dont work, you will have to open up your system and remove this disc yourself.
