Question about Yamaha CDC-845 5-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

I have an older Yamaha CDC-845 player. I was doing some chores around the house this week and it stopped playing and the disc tray opened. When i tried to restart the unit, it wouldn't read the cd, and the tray just came open again. I tried this several times and it would not start play again. Probably lost the disc reader?? Any other culprits I should consider??

Hi Fred..

I've done about 100 CD transports so far.
Try changing any belts in the unit. On some CD players ,if the open/close belt is bad, it wont allow the CD to be read either.
Also,VERY lightly cleaning the laser lens and dusting the unit out helps too.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: YAMAHA CD PLAYER WON'T PLAY

I have a Yamaha CD changer 815RS whose door will not open so that I can change the discs.  The discs play and the turntable turns, but I can't open the door to change the discs.  Any suggest- ions?

If you trust yourself enough to open the case w/o breaking stuff, then open it up UNPLUGGED, locate the laser lens (small,clear,plastic) gently clean the lens with a swab of lens cleaner for glasses.
Also clean the chrome runners that the laser assembly tracks on.

SOURCE: Note: CDC-625 unit won't open, no discs inside

Hi, this is a failed load motor. the windings are busted, in return, making it weaker than normal. it will not be able to move the gear assembly in this case.

The bad news is m the actual replacement parts for your unit has been discontinued. this will make it hard to repair.

I would cut the loss and just by a new unit. you wont be able to purchase any repair parts for this unit.

How do you replace the belt drive in the Yamaha CDC 615?


The drive belt on my CDC-615 stretched out this year too, and needs to be replaced. Unplug the CDC-615 from power. Remove two screws on the left side of the housing, two screws on the right side of the housing, and one screw from the middle top of the rear panel. This will allow the top panel to be removed.
Temporarily re-connect the CDC-615 to power and power it on. Press the "PlayXchange" or "Open/Close" button, which will drop the laser pickup/play head and spindle, and start the open/close motor. Power the CDC-615 down while the motor is running, to leave the laser pickup/play head and spindle in the "down" position. You should now disconnect the CDC-615 from power once again.
From here, you can simply push on the CD tray from behind, until it's in the fully open position. This will reveal the drive wheels (one large and one small pulley) just beneath the tray on the left side, with the tray facing you. This is where the replacement belt goes.
Reverse the steps to put it back together.

It's the belt inside the machine - open tray and look in front left side and you will see it. Easy to change out with new one.
