Often times the tray and pickup lift assembly are related and there is a cam alignment. IF you pulled out with force the tray the alignment may have been upset to where the cam is not completing the lift of the Pickup and if not in the right position the laser will not be able to focus. The correct solution is at a Technicians bench where a new belt could be put in, lubrication that is required and some cleaning will be done.

SOURCE: Recording from a Digital Source (computer)

Your computer audio output is definatley digital, yes? If so, make sure it is set to 2-channel PCM digital output, not 5,1 Dolby digital surround sound output. Auto / manual on the unit is for track marks to be inserted during recording. If you google the manual is out there or I can email it.

SOURCE: Recording audio only from an HDTV concert

Have a look at the manual for your AV receiver, you may find that you can change the digital output format between DTS mode and PCM(audio) mode. It needs to be in PCM(audio) mode for your CD recorder to be able to record digitally. If that doesn't solve it I can only suggest recording in analogue mode, i.e. taking a stereo analogue signal from your receiver to the analogue inputs of your CD recorder.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Have a Sony cd. player and it keeps open the tray.

This is a problem you should refer to a qualified audio tech. it may be mechanical, but more likely a digital/logic control problem. Either way, an untrained person has no chance of resolving this problem. You may have to consider if the unit is worth the repair cost.

SOURCE: FL 8350 CD Player. Disc drawer will not open. Getting error message

Most likely a belt has stretched and will not now move the tray. This happens of units more than 2 years old usually.

Why does disc tray open randomly Samsung ht-em54c


I had the problem of the disk tray opening and closing randomly but finally fixed it. I went thru a number of steps so I don't know which combination or individual step fixed it but I think it was changing the HDMI cable from the TV to the Blu ray player that finally fixed the problem. Previous to that I had removed the disk player and got the audio to work with only the TV and used one of the HDMI inputs as the output from my PC. That way I could play DVDs on my PC and run it thru the player to get audio in the speakers and video on the TV. Every once in a while the tray would try to eject (even though the player was not there). Finally I changed the HDMI cable to an older cable, the one between the TV and the player and it started working! I then put the disk player back in the unit and it all worked, everything!! Good luck!

I have a Harman Kardon crd20 and when trying to record i'm getting "no audio" what is the problem? And is it possible to get a manual?


"CRD20"

A simple web search, which you could do yourself, for "Harman Kardon CDR 20 manual" finds several.

Look for "no audio" in the manual. It occurs twice.

Hi i have pyle pltsn74 is slip in a dvd disc an it was working when i ejected the disc it stayed in side an tray error came up on the screen i push the reset button an it did not work i carefully open it...


Disconnect the power to the unit; perhaps pulling the radio fuse out - in the fusebox. Then put the fuse back in because you've got to reset the error.

Tray won't stay open


My unit closed immediately upon opening since like 1 day after the warranty ran out. It bothered me. I finally tore it apart and this fixed it.

Take the cover off. As you are facing the front of the player, the blue sensor switch that controls the tray will be on your left in the middle of the carousel. Push button to open tray and locate it as the tray opens. Grab the tray and also the carousel and hold them so you can see the little blue switch. Use a tiny screwdriver or toothpick or other slender device to "flick" the switch fully forward and backward several times. Let go of the tray and try the button. If it still closes immediately, repeat the flicking. Try it again.

CD trays will not open.


Use a paper clip. If you push a wire in the holes of each tray it will release the trays. The proper holes look like little dashes on the face of each tray, one end or the other.
