Powers on but CD shelf seems to be stuck?

we both have the same issue. Probably with moving it around, the CD system got pulled down. I fixed this by opening the right hand side wall, with the system upright, and shoved it towards the ceiling. Then I flipped it to the side and loaded the disc, and it worked. Make sure you disconnect the power before anything.

Tivoli Audio Music System: CD wont eject

We've had the Tivoli Music System for 3 years. A CD became stuck in the player when I pressed the EJECT button before turning the player on. We tried turning it off and back on, unplugging it for a minute, removing the batteries and unplugging, etc. Nothing worked. I finally turned the player upside down in my lap, then turned on the CD player, and it said LOADING! Progress!!! I turned it right-side up and hit EJECT, and it worked like new. The CD loading mechanism had become bound up and simply needed a different "attitude" adjustment. Don't give up too early in attempting to fix these players on your own.

My cd's get stuck in the load unload and have to take top off to get them out. How to correct this? as it will not play my cd's now

It sounds like the actual drive mechanism is having issues. It will most likely need repairs. There is no easy fix for this unless you have replaced electronics internal equipment before...

For a repair it will probably end up costing you more then a new one... What is the make / model we are looking at here?

It doesnt recognise cds

There are a few possible causes. 1. Lens on laser pickups dirty. 2. The belt that closes the drawer also lifts the CD assembly to allow disc to spin. If the belt is loose, drawer may close but not be able to lift CD. Listen to mechanism after drawer closes. Do you hear the disc spinning up? or Do you hear a motor trying and then shutting off? You can also remove the case top and visually check these. 3. The spindle height may have slipped. 4. The focus and tracking may have changed with age. 5. The pickup may be bad. And finally the carriage may be stuck and not moving the Pickup(Laser Assembly) to its start position.

Open/close doesn't work

When you press Eject CD button, do you see CD display blinks as if its preparing to be ejected? If its true then eject switch is working and cd mechanism is stuck, requires service. Also check loading belt in mechanism.
And if unit shows no response on pressing CD Eject button then switch is bad, replace it.

Sony Mini Hi-Fi MHC-MG110 no longer chooses CDs at random

Unplug the power for a while and load all CDs. It could solve the playing old paylist.

Owners manual

Below are links to the manuals. I also have this system with the original manuals.

Basically, press the "load" button to open up the CD mechanism, put a CD on the spindle, and press load again to close the CD mechanism. Press the "CD" button to start playing the CD. Page 12 in the User's Guide has instructions on configuring the radio presets.

The loading mechanism is out of timing. This needs to be taken apart and reassembled. I'll try and locate the instructions for this tonight.
