If you are absolutely sure nothing is jammed inside, there could have been a sudden failure of the tray drive mechanism

SOURCE: CD door will not open. Does not respond to the open close button.

the cd drive should have a tiny hole under the drawer. push a small screwdriver into the hole and it will release the drawer.

You can try to release the drawer and get it all the way out. Then turn of the power and carefully push the drawer back inside. Then turn the power on again. This might help!

Opening cd player


What about opening the cd player?

Are you saying the cd drawer will not open when you push the button? If so, try the steps below.

Take a paper clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then get in front of the cd drawer where you place the cd. Look for a small tiny hole on the drawer and insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) into the tiny hole and push it in while you press the button on the drawer. Don't worry about breaking something, use a little force to push the paper clip in, that's why that hole is there.

Sony CD player CE-415 Drawer will not open.


This will require a professional, the more CD'S this unit can take the more complicated the loading bay will be. The most common problem is gear timing where the system is knocked out of sync and often locks down the device to prevent further damage. Sometimes the gears will strip jamming whole mechanism.

There is a disc jammed in my cd player and the tray sometimes opens and closes but wont bring the disc out


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your CD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the CD drawer.

Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

Remove the CD and see if there is a problem with it. Most CD player drawers get stuck when a CD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the CD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

To open the CD player top to remove the cd/CD manually--

  • Unplug the CD player and take the outer casing of the CD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  • Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending CD tray finally comes to rest within the CD player. It’s the part that holds the CD loader in place.
  • Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
Points to remember while performing above steps---

 Before you remove the CD player cover, try turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come out after the machine has rebooted.
 Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your CD player.
 Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.
 Opening a CD player may negate the warranty. Read your warranty carefully before you proceed.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Philips 642 problem


when mine has frozen up i push and hold the power/standby button for ten seconds then release then push it again and it comes on and opens as usual.  or do you mean the disc is stuck in the machine after the door opens?  maybe open the machine it could be inside.

CD drawer stuck, then won't close


1. Most of the player drawer fixed over the chasis for a rigid support
2. try to remove the drawer safely without damagind the chasis and drive mechanism
3. there might be some shaft jam.
4. Look for the thread. how does the player drawer moves in and out
5. there may be some sensors to sense the door close/open. if it is jammed then open/close function cannot be done. why because this problem occurs
6. unwear the mechanism read the mechanism moving technique. see which has got jammed.
7. if you feel too risky then
8.contact service centre... all the best
