Question about Philips MX5500D System

1 Answer

Disk changers won't open

When we turn the system on and select disk (1 through to 5) the unit makes a sound as if changing disks but will not open any of the compartments. I am hoping that my one and a half year old did not circumvent my sophisticated security system on the entertainment cabinet (a twistie tie around the handles) and jammed a disk or something into one of the disk compartments, Are there any other likely scenarios and associated fixes or will I have to take it apart or worse pay someone else to.

These mechanisms are pretty complicated, and yes there could be a goodies jammed inside the unit to prevent the unit to operate. But a lot of the times when these units jam up, it is because of the unit going out of timing due to a broken gear. This really should be looked at by an authorized Phillips servicer, as they would have all of the proper documentation and equipment to service it properly. Good Luck

I have a Panasonic SA-PT660. It is just over a year old...and I get the 5 Disk changer to open. I turn the unit on and it just clicks (sounds like machine gun) going off. It says Disk Changer Error....


Hi there
Q: Did you push the CD Door by force?
If yes ...
1: you have misplaced the mechanical wheels ..
or broke some thing.
2: Or the second possibility is that the Driving motor rubber is broken
the answer is to service it.
Good Luck
Hope this helps

6 disk will not eject


you are all correct......

as are many other people with 6 disk cd changers in the same boat. check out this web site i have found at least 15 others with the same problem ( round about , but all problems relate to the 6 disk cd changer.)
the 6 disk changer is not excluse part to bose.
i recommend forcebaly removing the dam thing trying not to damage it further,( savge smashing the cd changer cassette) and trying to get a new one somewhere)

really though, you should consider surgury, - > open it and obtain spare parts to repair in the usual bodging fashion. ( that is to say any way you can ) or else return to manufacturer for remanufactured or replacement units at a cost or try to find replacement units on line such as ebay.

Aiwa 3 disk CX-NMT 70 MODEL SPINS A FEW TIMES ON EACH DISC..wont play at all..What can I do? Thanks!!


This can be fixed by adjusting the POT on the rear side of the laser. My Aiwa had the same issue and there is an orange screw on the rear of the laser. Turn it about 1/16 - 1/8 turn COUNTER clockwise.

Please understand, this is a temporary fix, and will eventually ruin your laser mechanism completely. The company is out of business and the unit is 10 years old, so I didn't much care...perhaps I will run across a CD assembly I can replace it with, but this is a temporary fix for this issue.
