You have a load / eject motor issue.

That being said there should be a pinhole to eject the CD. Straighten out a paper clip and insert into the hole and press the manual eject button

This is most commonly a belt in the drawer mechanism and is easy to fix IF you have the right belt in hand and can access where it goes.
A technician will be able to help.

SOURCE: CD drawer will not open or close

Had The Same With Mine. Its was the belt Inside that joins Motor To Cd Tray. Its Black and directly under the cd tray at the front. Its probably either loose like mine of maybe broken. I replaced mine with an elastic band and its been fine since.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cd tray won't open; won't play cd or turn off

No solution - plastic thread driving opening/closing had snapped after 16 years!

SOURCE: NAD C521 CD Player

The tray belt raises the laser to proper focal length at the end of closing the drawer. This demands more grip from the belt. If the belt is sloppy, it will slip at this point, even though the drawer is shut. Took two years of repeatedly cleaning lasers to notice this.

SOURCE: The drawers on the left side that hold 5 cds will

I have the same problem and have just lived with the B deck for over a year. Just now with nothing to lose, I decided to open it up. I don't have a clue about the inner workings, but was on a mission to at least rescue the 3 discs that were held prisoner. I'm happy to say that not only did I rescue my discs, but I'm listening to a disc in tray 2 right now. All the trays now work. I don't know if my disc was jammed in the player or what the problem was, but it seems the act of removing the disc from the deck made all the difference. If you want to try this, take the 6 black screws out (top 2 on rear panel, 2 on left and 2 on right panel) lift the panel straight up to remove it. you'll see the white framework that houses the trays and the play deck near the rear. In retrospect I should have opened up the play deck first since that may have been the source of the problem. I suggest you try that. There are two tiny screws on each side of the framework. Not sure if you need to remove the two screws with the washer heads. I think they just hold the disc clamp head in place. Again, I'm trying to save you unnecessary work, but remove them if it still doesn't come off. Once you get the top of the deck off, you should be able to access your disc. Take it out, then plug in the player to see if the deck starts to operate. I was very surprised. The belts started spinning and I was hearing the startup sounds I hadn't heard in over a year. Hope this helps

How do I play cds on my Philips portable stereo with the message 'door open'?


It could be caused by a small contact switch inside that has either broken or is stuck in the door open mode.

Problem with the cd changer on my RCA Total Power 5 disc changer system


Unfortunately, it sounds like the relay or motor to open the drawer is either stuck or dead, which can cause the entire system not to play the discs even if the drawer is closed. First, try calling RCA Customer Support to see if warranty service/exchange can be made for the unit. Second, try taking it back to where it was purchased. IF all else fails, You can disassemble the unit (this voids the warranty - do at your own risk) and try to identify the motor and drawer mechanism- try removing the main casing to your stereo (unplugged of course) and ensure that the small belts & gears that operate the drawer mechanism are all in good working order by gently operating them by hand. If not, you can replace or try a repair, but it honestly may be cheaper (and better for your sanilty) to buy a new system.

CD player does not work


10/6/08 Update.
Solved the problem myself.
Repositioned the printed circuit board with the CD Drawer open/close limit switch.
I suspect that the board shifted during shipping and failed to trigger the closed drawer position.
Player is now working.
