The CD trays on my Fisher DAC-199 will not come out. The machine just hums. The door will sometimes open or close.

That is most likely a belt that has stretched with time. Some belts are easy to install and other are so that you must remove the transport to get at the belt location. The symptom is very common in belt type drawer systems. I see it all the time.

Salve, ho un Nakamichi CD Player 2 e non riesco più a far aprire lo sportellino da dove si introducono i CD. Che devo fare? Io abito a Lecce in Puglia (Italy) non riesco a trovare un...

The problem is almost certainly that the belt for the CD tray is fatiguing. When this happens it becomes too loose to do its job. The solution is to replace the belt, of course, but it's not a job for the faint of heart. Getting at the belt is fairly involved.

There is a temporary fix, though. If you remove the top cover of the CD player (with the machine unplugged) and look at the right rear corner of the CD tray, all the way to the back of the unit, you will see a little spring-loaded white plastic roller that fits into a notch on the tray. This is to keep the tray from flopping open and from moving in or out during play. The belt will be slipping too much to overcome the grip that the roller has on the tray. You can carefully bend the spring out just enough to allow the belt to do its job but at the same time allowing the roller to still do its job.

This is a temporary fix. Eventually the belt will reach a point where it doesn't have enough grip on the pulleys to open the tray at all. It might even just break and fall off but this fix will allow you to use the player until you're ready to replace the belt.

This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.

Reply to $199

I did post another comment since that first one with the $199 question, and hope that you got that.

Since then, I did a little research on pricing, and there appear to be few alternatives to the $199. The only instances where the pricing was lower appear to be either original or SP1 versions, which would require substantially more time on your part to update. So, I think it is a choice between reverting using the restore CD, or unfortunately paying the $199. In either case, I would recommend doing a full backup of at least your data files, and any other software that you may not have handy, just in case something goes wrong with the solution. Best of luck!

TDK DA 3826 disc tray not functioning

Is the motor spinning to try to open the drawer?Can you hear it? Can you get something under the tray edge to try to 'help' it out when pressing eject?

This message usually indicates that a non-audio disc is in the record tray. Please use only blank music CD-R or CD-RW media. Refer to page 12 of the owners manual for more information regarding acceptable media type for the DA-3826. Also, the laser lens in your CD might be dirty or failing. Try the following solutions: Clean the laser lens with a CD player lense cleaning disc. Lense cleaning discs are available at many electronics retail store. Sorry i can't help you more.
