Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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.

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.

SOURCE: cd tray mechanics
It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.
There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....

Mine had the same fault. The CD is being rejected as it could not load up - this is probably because of the CD loading mechanism.
You'll need to unplug and remove the case - 4 screws on the sides and 4 or 5 on the back. Once this is done plug back in (be careful not to touch any live parts inside), load a CD and watch. What you'll probably see is that when the drawer closes the mechanism under the drawer doesn't lift sufficiently. Give it small push when it tries and I bet it then will and the CD will play.
What you need to do to fix this is remove the front panel/PCB and also remove the plastic cover that is screwed above the CD drawer so that you can see more of the topside of the mechanism.
Remove the front panel/PCB by releasing the 2 screws on the bottom and then easing forward. Gentle - as there are pins connecting the front PCB to the side PCB. You should then be able to see a worm drive type arrangement that lifts the lower assembly. This will need regreasing (I used vaseline) with a small stick (I used a Q-tip with the bud cut off). You will probably see where the old grease has been pushed out. Once you've done this, reassemble and operate a good few times to work the grease in.
Done! Mine works fine now after sitting there performing the annoying trick you described for many months!

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.
