How to open cd drawer


Oh my God, the answers I\'ve found on the net on how to get the CD drawer on a Crosley CR247 open are all nuts. Mine wouldn\'t open yesterday and I dismantled the whole damn thing to get the tray open, but that isn\'t necessary.

First of all my unit was making noise when I hit the eject button but the drawer wouldn\'t open. I knew there was no CD in the tray. Powering down and all the other foolish answers I found didn\'t work. There is no small round hole in the front to do a manual eject. Trying to pry the door open won\'t work and you\'ll just damage the unit. Here\'s what you need to do. And do it all GENTLY. There is no need to force anything!

Take a small, pointed steak knife out of your kitchen silverware drawer. This is all you\'ll need to get the drawer open. First let\'s identify where we\'re going to put that knife blade. The CD drawer says "CD RECORDER" and there are 3 lines on each side of that label. Where you\'re going to put that knife is below the 3 lines on the left, to the left area of those lines (see picture). This is the location of the drawer lock.

If you still hear noise when you push the eject simply push in the knife gently as you push the eject button. The drawer will open if you got the right spot.

If you hear no noise, or your unit is dead and you want the CD out, or if you\'re just afraid to stick the knife in the unit, unplug the unit. Gently push in on that spot until the drawer pops out a little bit. Now you can gently open the drawer by hand.

You can see the drive belt and pulleys (see pic). Mine was still intact but needs replaced. Here is also the info I got off of the back of the CD (see pic). Might not be able to find a replacement belt but at least you can get the thing open. Good luck.

I CANNOT GET THE CD DRAWERS TO OPEN ON MY SHARP MINI COMPONENT SYSTEM MODEL CD-DK890N


Chances are the loading mechanism is out of alignment. Very hard to realign this mech. even the manufacturer just replaces the entire mechanism when repairing.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"


Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

My jvc compact component system cd drawer won't open


The loading belt is broken, or the gears are jammed and locked down, either way a major dis-assembly will be required to attempt repair.

When I put a cd in the recorder drawer it keeps opening after I close it. What should I do ?


My unit has started doing the same thing about 6 months ago (the record cd tray keeps opening again after a new disc is inserted.) My unit is about 10 years old so I figured it might be because I've recorded so many CD's and it's not sensing the disc correctly. I'm stubborn, so every time this happens I press the button to reload the disc and keep doing that until it loads correctly and starts reading/initializing. Sometimes it loads after a couple of opening/closing attempts, sometimes it takes a dozen or so attempts. But eventually it loads. It's frustrating to do this but it's worth it because this is such a good unit. However, most importantly the best possible and correct type of discs must be used. The only ones that have worked consistently for me (very rarely is there a bad disc) are Sony CRM80RS. I use these exclusively now. As of April 2011 they're still available online from Amazon and Walmart, and other sites too. Sold in 30 or 50 packages and fairly inexpensive. I've just read some of the other answers on this site and realize the problem could also be connected to a dirty laser, so I'm going to try wiping the 'eye' very gently with a Q-tip. It might help.

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

WIthout knowing the specific model, I can't be 100% sure, but a number of models in that vintage had a problem with cracked ribbin cables that go to the drawer unit. Replacing the cable usually fixed the problem. What is the specific model number?

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
