Question about Kenwood CD-404 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

CD changer eats CDs

This is the 4th time it's happened, a CD jumps out of it's tray while player is closed and disappears into the machine somehow. You can heaer it when it happens. They've reappeared at times up to 2 years later, just plopping back down into a tray. It now ate my favorite new CD that I can't get in this country and I'd love to know how to get it back out. Have tried emptying all CDs and keep hitting "play" but nothing's coming back. All trays are playable. Where's the CD how can I get it back?

    sorry it took so long to get back to you, the summer was crazy. We finally took your suggestion, it was very easy to get the cover off and we found two (!) of our lost CDs stashed under there.
    Thank you so much, it was perfect and easy!

Sounds like its time to take the cover off (after unplugging the unit of course). Sorry to hear you are having a problem. Good luck.

My sony cd player plays most discs but not all? Why?


I have several CD players and I've found some CDs will just not play on some of them. If you have a changer with 300+ discs they are more likely to be fussy than one loaded in a flat tray.

I'd suggest you try playing the CD in another CD player or your computer, if it won't play in them it is the disk. I had one which would not play in any machine, it was a copy I made on a poor quality closeout of blank CDs at Good Guys when they closed, it turned out the blank CDs were of poor quality.

I hope that might help you.

I bought the cd changer with my unit & two cds are stuck in it. This happened the third time I used the unit.


Hello,

this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.

What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.

After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.

Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.

I wish you good luck.

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel


This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!
