It sounds like the belt that opens the try is getting bad and beginning to slip, a common problem on CD players like this. You should be able to find a replacement belt online.

Salve, ho un Nakamichi CD Player 2 e non riesco più a far aprire lo sportellino da dove si introducono i CD. Che devo fare? Io abito a Lecce in Puglia (Italy) non riesco a trovare un...

The problem is almost certainly that the belt for the CD tray is fatiguing. When this happens it becomes too loose to do its job. The solution is to replace the belt, of course, but it's not a job for the faint of heart. Getting at the belt is fairly involved.

There is a temporary fix, though. If you remove the top cover of the CD player (with the machine unplugged) and look at the right rear corner of the CD tray, all the way to the back of the unit, you will see a little spring-loaded white plastic roller that fits into a notch on the tray. This is to keep the tray from flopping open and from moving in or out during play. The belt will be slipping too much to overcome the grip that the roller has on the tray. You can carefully bend the spring out just enough to allow the belt to do its job but at the same time allowing the roller to still do its job.

This is a temporary fix. Eventually the belt will reach a point where it doesn't have enough grip on the pulleys to open the tray at all. It might even just break and fall off but this fix will allow you to use the player until you're ready to replace the belt.

The tray on my Arcam Alpha 6 CD player will not eject and refuses to budge. Neither the remote control nor the load button on the front of the unit will make it open.

It's either the gear on the tray loading mechanism or it's drive belt. The gear is made of a soft material and the teeth wear down on the hard tray rack. Get hold of Arcam and order TP21H replacement part and belt. The same happened to me and the gear had perished. In the meantime stick something onto the front of the tray that you can use to pull it open after you have pressed the 'load' key. Place your CD in the tray, press the 'load' key and push the tray closed manually. The player will work like this until you can replace the gear/belt.

Disc tray does not come out. makes a grrrr sound

Either your mechanism gear which ejects the tray or the belting has worn out. Open up to check both issues. Theres nothing else is wrong with ur player.

Onkyo C-707chx cd tray jammed won't open won't play

I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.

Tray Sticking on CD Player

reoccurring tray problems are a paim. It mauy be a spot of oil or grease on the tray motorbelt, or the wrong belt fitted, and or dry failing bubricant to opening cam and sliders. Best approach is to strip and clean everything, lube only with white plastic grease, and sparingly. I use graphic powder on tray sliders, be careful not to get lubricants on drive belts. try next size down belt also, or be sure the belt fitted is 2.0 mm crosssectional area
