Re: CD player is locked

^^^above is correct, except you do the Stop + Disc 1 thing in Standby mode. Strange thing: Stop + Disc 2 in Stby mode turns on the fan.

Re: CD player is locked

On the main unit, press [stop] [disk1] at the same time. The display should then show "UNLOCKED" If this doesn't work, you may need to first disable the "save on" mode by turning the unit off (standby) and pressing [display] on the remote.

How to open cd drawer

Oh my God, the answers I\'ve found on the net on how to get the CD drawer on a Crosley CR247 open are all nuts. Mine wouldn\'t open yesterday and I dismantled the whole damn thing to get the tray open, but that isn\'t necessary.

First of all my unit was making noise when I hit the eject button but the drawer wouldn\'t open. I knew there was no CD in the tray. Powering down and all the other foolish answers I found didn\'t work. There is no small round hole in the front to do a manual eject. Trying to pry the door open won\'t work and you\'ll just damage the unit. Here\'s what you need to do. And do it all GENTLY. There is no need to force anything!

Take a small, pointed steak knife out of your kitchen silverware drawer. This is all you\'ll need to get the drawer open. First let\'s identify where we\'re going to put that knife blade. The CD drawer says "CD RECORDER" and there are 3 lines on each side of that label. Where you\'re going to put that knife is below the 3 lines on the left, to the left area of those lines (see picture). This is the location of the drawer lock.

If you still hear noise when you push the eject simply push in the knife gently as you push the eject button. The drawer will open if you got the right spot.

If you hear no noise, or your unit is dead and you want the CD out, or if you\'re just afraid to stick the knife in the unit, unplug the unit. Gently push in on that spot until the drawer pops out a little bit. Now you can gently open the drawer by hand.

You can see the drive belt and pulleys (see pic). Mine was still intact but needs replaced. Here is also the info I got off of the back of the CD (see pic). Might not be able to find a replacement belt but at least you can get the thing open. Good luck.

My rca rs 2657 cd changer is stuck. door will not open. any ideas how to correct?

If you hit the open button and you hear a sound like a motor running than it is most likely a belt or connection that physically opens the tray. You'll have to take it apart, locate the cd player and check from there. If no sound of a motor running when the button is pushed then the motor is probably bad.

My CD drawer will not open or close

I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

WIthout knowing the specific model, I can't be 100% sure, but a number of models in that vintage had a problem with cracked ribbin cables that go to the drawer unit. Replacing the cable usually fixed the problem. What is the specific model number?

Cd player keeps opening with cd in it

Some small item would appear to be obstructing complete closure
With the drawer open take a good look in side.
Also near the  open button you  should see a small pin hole[sometime on the back of the unit]
 This is the emergency eject device in case you get a jam and is operated with the end of a paper clip.
give it a poke with the drawer open  then again closed
See what happens

I tilted the player to the right side (viewed from the front) to better see the speaker terminals and heard a clunk. When I sat the player back up I was able to open the drawer. I found two of the CD’s had fallen out of the proper holder on top of another CD (three CD’s in one space. After I put the CD’s back where they belonged the unit worked fine.

I assume one of the CD’s didn’t seat properly after playing and caused the mechanism to jam.

Hope this helps your problem.
