Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My CD player won't open. There is a piece above the CD holder that doesn't lift high enough to allow the track to roll forward. With the lightest lift manually it will open. The spring seems to have plenty of tension to it. It will close with no problems.
Hi Walter, this is called the Chucking arm and is made to hold the disc in place when the Pickup assembly is lifted into place. Often times an analysis will show you that the arm is not being lifted due to a lack of grease (Lubrication in the door mechanism) or that the drive parts- motor and a belt are not transferring the energy well enough. I would start with a belt of the correct size and then it may be fixed.

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.

Yes! it sounds very likely that a small loading belt has stretched, or the loading motor is not working, this is not an easy repair because the gears are timed and synced to work together, if the unit has a loading belt pull tray all the way out and look in the empty tray, may be visable! if you can remove it without taking it apart all the better, have a Tv repair shop size up the belt for replacement.
