Question about Teac GF-650 Turntable

1 Answer

CD drawer will not open

CD drawer says "Open" and "Close" in the LCD panel when the eject button is pressed but does not budge. The drawer doesn't even make a sound. I had used the unit successfully for burning CD's from LP's two times before the drawer open/close mechanism went dead.

Re: CD drawer will not open

Try manually opening the drawer. There's a little hole on the front, Insert a pin or bent paper clip in the hole with the machine "on". Should open for you.

How to manually open eject Crosley CR248 CD drawer

Look at the front of the tray for a small pin hole. Open up a paperclip with pliers so that it is nice and straight. Insert it into the pin hole and push firmly. The tray will pop open enough to be able to pull the drawer manually.

We'll if the cd tray fails to open either by the remote or by the eject button on front fascia...try looking for a small pinhole underneath the cd tray.this is a manual release port which allows you to push a sewing needle or fine paper clip.this should release the tray mechanism.sometimes the tray jumps a cog during transportation from one place to another or the cd does not seat into the tray properly and prevents normal ejection.hope this is helpful.

Why won't my 3 drawer cd player won't shift or open?

The drawer is operated by a small rubber belt. It's most likely broken or slipped off. You can fix this yourself by looking inside for the belt. If it's broken, just measure the diameter in MM and put "Drive belt XX MM" into Google and it should turn up. You don't have to be spot on with the measurement.

Cd drawer will not open

Sometimes the cause is a belt that has either broken or come off. If you need a new one just measure the diameter of the old one in MM. The put that into Google with the words "drive belt" and find the one close to your stated size.

Need the manuel original lost or misplaced and can not find. want to record cassettes to cd's

Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into the unit. Press the Function button on the remote (key above Vol+ on the bottom right of the remote) or the turntable itself (top left of the control panel) until the unit is in Phono mode. Then insert the pre-recorded cassette and press Play to advance the tape to where you wish to start recording. With the cassette playing, press the CD Record button (recording will flash on the display). The CD Record button is to the left of the fast reverse button on the unit; it is labeled Record on the remote and is below the Stop button. When one side of the cassette finishes playing, press Stop. Wait for the display to return to Phono. Then eject and turn over the cassette to play side 2 (if you want to record both sides of the tape). Press Play again to advance the tape and then press Record. When this side finishes, press Stop and then Finalize. Finalize is at the bottom left of the remote buttons and to the left of the stand by indicator on the turntable.

The manual is available at Crosley: . The direct link to the manual is . Recording a cassette to CD is on page 11 (page 12 of the pdf).

I hope this helps.

Cannot open cd area when I press 'open/close' button

There are two likely causes:
  1. a CD is not located properly in the tray and is causing the drawer to stick. Solution - try to very gently insert a very thin blade at the bottom of the CD tray and prise it open - but don't force it if it won't budge. If that doesn't work try sliding the blade in at the top of the tray to press the CD down.
  2. If a jammed CD is not the cause then it is likely to be the rubber drive belt that operates the tray has broken - they are not normally accessible so take it to a repair shop

Crosley Radio CR246 CD door will not open

Try checking these:

- the CD door motor rubber drive belt (if there is one), it could be either loosened or broken, if so, it needs to be replaced

- the door open/closed sensor switches (contacts), they could be oxydized or damaged, they are located somewhere under the CD tray, possibly at the front end of the unit (depends on brand and model), you need to clean these with some fine sandpaper

It could be something else like the door motor driver IC, the power supply for the motor, a bad capacitor in the motor drive section, a loose connection or a broken wire somewhere, but hopefully, it's just a bad rubber belt or a dirty contact.

Liquid spillage on eject button

Will rarely eject Cd

Either switch is about to go bad, or the plastic activator underneath the eject button, which activates the switch is worn.

You can open it up to look, but I would suggest professional repair for something like this. If the electronic switch is bad, it will need to be replaced, and un-soldered from it's board.
