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.

    Dear JLH,

    I did try calling the company as you suggested and contrary to complaints I saw posted elsewhere on the Net, support wastn't all that hard to get hold of and seemed fairly responsive. I'm going to be taking the TEAC GF-350 over to an authorized service center some time w/in the next couple of days since I was told this problem should definitely be covered under warranty. I'll try to let you know how I make out, eventually. Thanks your help.

    Yours,
    Dave S.

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.

MHC-RG270 cd draw won't open


cd drawers often jam.
In the cd/dvd drawer you will see a small hole. Use a blunt pin or a straightened-out paper clip, insert it into the small hole and gently press. The drawer should then click open.

Try cleaning the plastic drive teeth/mechanism with a light drop of oil. Press the drawer button and it should then close. Press it again to see if the drawer opens as per normal.

If your cd drive plays a dvd as per normal but doesn't open when the button is pressed, continue using a blunt pin/paperclip. If the plastic open-close mechanism is worn or damaged there's very little you can do about it expect replace the entire drive.

Cant open dvd drawer


Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.

  1. Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
  2. Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
  3. Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
  4. Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
  5. Remove your disc from the drive.
  6. Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.

Eject CD FROM EMACHINES


The CD drive has a pinhole on the door/drawer. It should be located close to the button you press to open the drive. Straighten a paper clip and insert it in the pinhole, pressing gently. The drive should open, releasing the CD.

Hi- I've just inserted a CD into my MacBook Pro


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Hi I cannot get my d.v.d drive to open and close. What do I do?


  1. If the keyboard has a CD/DVD Eject key, press it. The Eject key is usually placed by the volume knob and is marked by a triangle pointing up with a line underneath.
  2. Double-click My Computer .
  3. Right-click the icon for the CD, CDRW, or DVD drive that is stuck, and then click Eject.
  4. If the CD or DVD drive door button is a long clear plastic bar on the front of the PC, press firmly on the right side of bar. Some models have a button on the front panel of the PC to the right of the hinged door. Press the button to eject the drive.
  5. If the drive door button is part of the PC case and is covering the actual drive door, open the door that is part of the PC case and press the Eject button on the faceplate of the drive.
  6. Restart the PC and press the Eject button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD driver. Try shutting down or configuring any software programs that create discs or monitor the CD or DVD drive.
  7. If the door still does not open, do the following:
    1. Close all programs and shut down the PC.
    2. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
    3. Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. The location of the manual release hole will vary

  1. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.
  2. Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.
  3. Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.
  4. Remove the CD and turn on the PC.
If the tray still does not open, do the following steps to check the power cable for the drive. Work on a hard flat surface over a non-carpeted floor:

  1. Turn off the PC.
  2. Unplug all power cords from the back of the PC.
  3. Press and release the Power button on the front of the computer.
  4. Remove the side panel.
e0ef68c.gif
  1. Unplug the power cable and wait five seconds.
  2. Find a different power cable that is not being used, plug the different power cable into the back of the drive, making sure that it fits firmly into the socket. If a different power cable is not available, replug the original power cable into the back of the drive, making sure that it fits firmly into the socket.
  3. Replace the side panel and plug in the power cord.

  1. Turn on the PC and press the eject button on the front of the drive.
If the optical drive does not have the manual eject feature and the CD tray will not open by using the steps in this document or if a disc has shattered inside the drive, the CD, CDRW, DVD drive may need to be replaced.

Thanks

CD drawer will not open or close


Hi, The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.
