CD player stops, won't open

When I turn on the cd player, it makes a noise like it's trying to move to a disc, but then stops. I've tried switching to another disc, but nothing happens. Also, the player itself won't open. I tried looking for a manual opening mechanism for the player, but there doesn't seem to be one. I've removed cd cases from the top of the system, thinking there might be too much weight on the top, but that didn't work either. The radio and tape player are working fine.

How do I get to the broken spring to see if that the problem?

Re: CD player stops, won't open

There is a spring loaded mechanical switch under the cd rack that often breaks
I am trying to fix one right now and i am going to rig a three phase switch on the out side of the case

It is probable that the battery will need to be changed, this the first step to find out if additional work is required.

The cd tray doesnt open and the motor doesnt stop making this noise that sounds like its just going and going

Could be the belt for driving the cd tray door has come off one of the pulleys.. I had similar problem with a Marantz CD Player.. I could stop it making a noise by pulling the door out, setting the disc and pushing back in.. THis allowed me to at least play the cd's.. To set the belt onto the pulley wheels I had to dismantle unfortunately.. If you're feeling competent it can be done.

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

My cd player on the Sony HCD-G101 rotates the discs but ...

i had the same problem after i moved and everything ran but when i put in a cd the disc would spin for awhile then change to the next disc and just kept spinning and moving from one disc to the other none stop. so i opened mine up turns out during the move there is a small black plastic piece that sits on top of the laser in the middle it shifted during the move making it block the view of the disc. you will have to carefully remove the plastic piece from the top of the laser with out touching the laser lens and that fixed mine good as new. my problem is i need the remote code movers lost my remote and can't find the code to use the replacement i bought. Hope it helps if this is the same problem i had should work. i tried to move the black piece back into place but it just did not go back right to just removed it all together. they did not use anything to really hold it into place to avoid slipping.

Cd player will not read disc

Unit probably has defective disk motor or function sensor

CD Player will not play, just moved the tray in, then out and stops.

Take off the metal cabinet cover, then find the lens on the exchanger and blow it off with some compressed air. If it still won't work, then try a different disc (commercially made, like from Wal-Mart) because the disc might be unreadable
