Question about RCA RS2600 CD Shelf System

1 Answer


I have experienced this both with my citizen dvd player and my RCA RS2600 5-disc changer. I turn on the unit, insert the cd/dvds and then close the tray. The unit appears to work, says reading, then stops working and says error - no disc. Then, when i try to open the tray, the tray won't open and my cds/dvds are stuck inside until someone takes it apart to get them out. I would just go buy a new one of each since they were relatively cheap but i really like both of them and would much rather fix them instead. I don't want to pay to fix them though, it would make more sense to buy a new one. Any suggestions? I just read another problem similar to mine in which the solution was to take it apart and clean the lens. I will try this, but in the meantime if anyone has any better ideas/ solutions, please respond! thank you :)

No if the cleaning does not work, you will need to have the unit hooked up to test equipment to check if the laser is bad. It could also be a bad spindle motor if the unit will not spin. good Luck

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play

RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

CDs won't play RCA RS2651

I think the laser is mis-aligned or the laser unit needs replacing. If you are able to check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Look for a reset button at the back or may be at the front head of the cd changer.It is a very small 1mm hole.If you find it insert a paperclip in it,press and hold it for 1 min.This will reset the unit.If you still face the problem then just unplug all the cords of the changer for 1 hour and then plug it back in.

My rca 5 disk vertically stacked cd changer is stuck. Won't open. How to fix it?

Try this... unplug the unit and turn it upside down.  Have a small screwdriver ready.  No plug the unit in and try to turn the wheel in the large slot clockwize.  When you see the spring clip try to grab the white plastic stop and move it clockwize.  This should eventually open the door.  It did for me.
