Question about Wurlitzer Crosley WR18 Mini-Bubbler CD Player CD Player

1 Answer

CD opens and closes perpetually. CD won't play.

After a power outage, my WR18 started acting strangely once power was restored. Now when I close the CD tray, it closes, but then it immediately opens up again. The radio works fine, but the CD tray won't stay closed. Does this sound like damage from a power surge?

Likely yes. does not sound like coincidence. try this: search ebay for an AS-IS item for $1 and use it for part-swapping. first to swap-the main circuit board holding the micro chip.

The display flashes "closed" and I can't open the cd drawer when pressing the open/close button. Is there a reset please ?

Try removing power from the unit, let it set two minutes without power and power it up again. See if the problem continues.
Make sure the cd drawer is complete closed and flush with the front panel. If not, something could be stuck inside.
Turn off power and remove cord from wall for next step:
There is a small hole generally on the flat face of the cd drawer through which a bent straight paper clip can be pushed gently until you hit a mechanical stop. Pushing slightly harder at this point should cause the cd drawer to move open mechanically. Gently pull the cd drawer open until you can remove any CD still inside.
Gently push the drawer closed again and restore power to the unit and see if the problem returns.
Would be nice to have manufacturer and model number of the CD player.

I have a 5CD changer stereo system. It is very close to the RS2652 and I use it every day in my classroom. Several weeks ago, it began behaving strangely. First I could only get one or two cds to play...

It very well could be a lightning related issue. From previous experience servicing equipment, I have found that electronic equipment that is hit by lightning acts strangely very comparable to what you are describing. Function switches are performing different functions usually due to shorts from the hit. It tends to act normally for bit, and then sporadically do something completely different from what it is supposed to.
As far as service, depending on the age and original cost, you probably are better off getting a new unit. It has also been my experience even if something electronic is repaired, it still may act strangely doing something else later if it was indeed hit. Unfortunately most electronic repair charges can be rather high, maybe 50.00 hr or so, plus parts and a bench fee just to look at it. I have replaced many items for customers after they had them repaired because of this. Check into your insurance. It you have a higher deductable, it may not be worth it. Insurance companies also tend to charge higher premiums as well. Never hurts to ask, but in the long run a drive to the store might be worth it.

Broken carouself? Can't properly open, close, rotate, etc.

Broken gears. The current replacement 5 disc is a CD/DVD player and sells for $129.00 at Sony or any other Sony retailer. The cost to have a service center even estimate the repair would be more than 50% of the replacement cost. Hope this helps

Denon CD player DCD 920. When using the open/close button once, the CD-door opens but when it is open, without any waiting time, it immediately closes again. If i operate manually the open/close switch on...

Off the power, and plug off the switch, and try opening it manually. DO NOT force open it. I don't think it would close back since it has no electricity already.

CD drawer will not open or close

Hi, 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.
