Lid won't stay shut!

Don't know what's causing lid of cd player to not snap shut. Can I fix this myself. Also even if I hold it down, the readout message will read "no disc." Thanks for any advice you may offer.

SOURCE: The system shuts down about 5 seconds after switch

Found a second-hand CD unit and swapped it over with original. This cured the fault.

Kenmore washer 80 series stopped draining


So it will agitate and fill but the motor won't run during drain and spin?
If so, the likely cause is a bad lid switch. The paddle that the probe hits when the lid is down moves a small switch. That switch can do two things
1. fail internally. It will look fine outside but it won't close the circuit
2. the screw holes snap and it hangs off the wires, the probe no longer hits the paddle and the switch stays open.
The lid switch is cheap and very easy to repair.

My daughter received a personal cd player from tous for tots christmas program.The Lid will not stay down and two battery changes would not remedy the problem


There is a physical mechanism that should lock in when it's pressed down. Usually there is a release button for that mechanism when you need to open it. I would try using tape and see if it will play when it's taped shut. Depending on the mechanism this may be your only option.
Thank you,

Durabrand model cd-1493...cd won't play


A friend of mine has one of these, and the same thing happened. Toss in a CD, and the unit reads it, but doesn't play it. Looking at the CD components, all appears to be well, and I was even able to trick the unit into turning on using a paper clip to hold down the "lid closed" switch.

What I found the issue to be was with the lack of downward or clamping pressure the CD was getting with the lid closed. If you notice, with the lid open, there is a round part that "floats" and serves two purposes...one is to align the CD and keep it steady, and the other is to grip it, as the CD's do not snap into the lower centering piece, but rather just sit on it.

I solved the problem by placing a rubber o-ring on it, The one I used is about 1/16" (1mm +/-) and about 1 inch (25mm) diameter. I used some rubber cement to attach it to the top piece. I'm not sure how long this will hold, but it's worth a shot. I figure keeping a CD in the tray will help keep the ring in place as well.

Good luck!

A cd has gotten stuck in my Sony 5 cd/dvd carousel player. Appears that the label on the CD had gotten soft (sticky) and when the carousel rotates it stays stuck underneth the top while the carousel moves...


As long as the cd hasn't caused any other damage to the electronics or mechanics of the player, it should be an easy fix. First, open your carousel then unplug the player to avoid shock. Remove the top lid of the player via the screws on the exterior holding it in place. From there, the stuck CD should be right there for you to reach in and remove. Hope this helps!

Lid Closure


OK - There is nothing that drives the door to close and stay closed. There is a little plastic gismo the locks onto a little protruding tongue in the lid keeping it closed. To release the lid, you must press the lid foreward so that it releases the lock in the little plastic gismo. I found this out only after removing the board above the main deck of the player and which, fumble-fingers me, I managed to damage the board and will have to replace it along with the little plastic gismo that holds the door closed. I am not sure if either of these parts are available as I have had the unit for quite a while. This leaves me in a quandry as I really did like the little player. It was a dandy. So, if you ever get an inquiry on how to keep the lid closed on a JMC_800, tell them to replace the little plastic gismo and that will do it.

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.

Faulty goodmans 1104s dab player


In the lid should be a mgnetic plate that holds the disc to the motor spindle (much like slight pressure would). Inspect it to make sure it's free moving and seating all the way when the lid is closed. I had one unit where the spindle on the motor shaft had slid down slightly causing the magnetic plate to not seat down all the way. Also, if the magnetic plate is removable, try placing it on the disc with the lid open and bypassed and see what happens.

Hope that helps...
