Re: cd spins buts doesn't play I fixed the drawer open...
Clean the lens of the laser with a cotton swab. Remove the cover, and locate the glass lens at the top of the laser assembly. Pre-wet a cotton swab with glass cleaner and wipe the lens carefully without applying pressure. Use the other end of the swab to dry off and remove any residual dust or gunk.
Reassemble the unit and load a disc. If the problem was caused by dust or smog film on the lens, it should now play without any problem.

I have a Sony mini hifi stereo(pixy) and when ever I close the tray it continues to ... my cd player drawer opens ...
This is a result of the deck kicking out you disc as an unacceptable media. This usually means that it can not read the data on the disc or the necessary TOC (Table of Contents). The other possibility is that your draw in detection switch has gone bad and when the processor- control type, tries to load a tray or close the drawer it is not getting the door closed signal. Depending on how the unit is programmed it might just sit there and do nothing or in your case throw the disc back out. It is kind of telling you it wants to go see a Technician. It could also be a bad belt that loads the Pickup assembly- it might be good enough to move the drawer in and out but the Pickup assembly needs more torque and it might not be there.
The tray belt raises the laser to proper focal length at the end of closing the drawer. This demands more grip from the belt. If the belt is sloppy, it will slip at this point, even though the drawer is shut. Took two years of repeatedly cleaning lasers to notice this.
This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!
To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.
After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.
Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.
The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.
Well I fixed the problem myself by taking yhe cover off and cleaning the laser with a cue tip and alchohol very gently of course. I guess it was not reading the disc the first time it closed because some foreign object , works fine now
1. Most of the player drawer fixed over the chasis for a rigid support 2. try to remove the drawer safely without damagind the chasis and drive mechanism 3. there might be some shaft jam. 4. Look for the thread. how does the player drawer moves in and out 5. there may be some sensors to sense the door close/open. if it is jammed then open/close function cannot be done. why because this problem occurs 6. unwear the mechanism read the mechanism moving technique. see which has got jammed. 7. if you feel too risky then 8.contact service centre... all the best
