Moved CD changer with discs inside - won't "reset" / work

I moved above changer with a few discs inside, and upon re-plugging in, it refused to open or operate. I manually opened door, removed offending discs, (one still in laser / player drive in rear of machine), unit will still not function. Any "reset" button I'm missing?

I've found the easiest way by far is to take off the metal cover and replace the disks that way. In fact, it's likely impossible to get the discs all in place unless you do that.
Unplug the unit. Unscrew the 9 screws that hold on the upper/side cover. There are two screws on each side, two on top, and three on the back upper lip. Then lift the cover straight up and off.
You can then carefully remove any CD's that are out of place. You'll have both ones that jumped into the adjacent groove, and sit a little higher than normal, and ones that are grossly dislodged. The mechanism gets stuck when a disc that's sufficiently out of place jams and interferes with passage of the carousel past points where there's little clearance.
You may need to plug it back in and turn it on to get the turntable to turn to access them all. For those stuck in the front, turn it on and immediately push the open door button. then as soon as it opens, unplug the unit so you can remove any stuck there. With the door open, you can rotate the turntable both ways (till an out of place disc stops it) without the plyer mechanism trying to load a disc each time you pause the rotation of the carousel to replace the CDs properly. NOW MY QUESTION: any way to load the discs easily to a PC for MP3 conversion? Anyone figure out how (i.e., routing the audio through a PC that's then connected to the keyboard in jack) to get the disk information to be read off the discs and automatically input into the CDP-CX400's memory?

Has been plugged in, and still does not respond. Manually opened door and removed CD's, so issue is getting it to respond to buttons.

Good day - I moved for my work and upon


First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! Unplugg before opening!

Why wont my kenwood cd player work ? It wont play open or do anything it wont let me do anything .


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you;

This unit, if it has been moved recently, could have had the laser lens fall out. If thats not the case, open the unit and clean the lens, and while it is open insert a disc and see if the disc spins up to full speed, as the spindle motor is very popular to go bad in these units. Good Luck

My CD changer's disk tray keeps opening up, refuses to play discs


You have a problem with the try control circuit. It could be the switch is leaking across itself. Could be a problem with the tray motor control IC, or the Microprocessor is not reseting the open tray line correctly, or theres a cam assembly inside the unit that tells the microprocessor where everything is by means of small micro/leaf type switches thats out of alighnment or broken. If its seven years old, you got more then it was designed for and I would'nt invest a dime or the time into the repair of this unit. Time to take a trip to the electronics store. Good luck
