Had this happen to me awhile back while I was fixing a DVD scratch problem with my 400 changer. As I recall, the top cover comes off easily (a few side and back screws and perhaps an internal top try cover) and you can access the disks easily to reset them in their slots. Obviously, you should unplug the unit before you open it.

This was a very low tech solution to the problem of CD's dislodged from their slots inside the CDP-CX455 Sony CD Carousel. It was a fully loaded unit with 400 CD's in the unit.

I used a 12" smooth plastic ruler that I was able to slide through the right edge of the door. It took some maneuvering, but I was able to move the dislodged CD's that were ejected from the internal carousel. This allowed me to partially open the door manually so that I could fit my hand inside the unit. I was then able to carefully remove the CD's from the unit. Once the unit was completely empty the problem was solved. The carousel works fine and all of the CD's have been painstakingly re-installed.

The solution that Sony gave me was to send the entire unit to their Dallas TX facility for exchange with all of the CD's inside. They would not guarantee that all of my CD's would be returned. The value of the CD's was approximately $4800.00

Player was moved discs fell forward. Now when the player comes on it makes a horrible sound. Can't get door to open


you're going to have to open the player by removing the top cover and returning the discs to their correct places on the carousel. If you've coded the discs' locations and disc names it will be a pain to have to re-code them, I don't know if the memory will clear if you take the discs out and power the unit up and it finds they're not there.
I believe the discs being out of place are what is preventing the door from opening. It's operated by a motor located under the right front of the carousel, and the only way to get it it is to remove the carousel.... which isn't hugely easy but it can be done, you'll have to take the top stuff off inside, unplug at least several of the cables etc so you can move the top board out of the way. Make sure that all the discs are back in their places on the carousel, OR removed, before you turn the unit back on.

It says off and thats all


CD stuck in player.
Unplug.
Remove lid, small black screws on side and along the top of the back.
Fiddle with latch on left side near front that controls the door.
Once latch is released, open door and remove all CD's.
Make sure 2 CD's are not **** in player.
Move CD cage carefully. It should run smoothly along. If not it is locked in 'switched off mode' or CD is stuck half in and half out. If CD stuck fish CD out carefully.
Plug back in without any CD's in.
System should run back and forward and then lock at left hand end.
Put lid on and try one CD in one slot.

Disc door keeps opening.


The drawer belt may also lift the laser up to meet the CD . If the belt is bad , the CD player will kick out the CD.
Change the belt.

Sony cdp-c545 won't open


Without turning the unit upside down, look at the bottom of the player. You should see a small round hole toward the front of the unit, with a white plastic part inside with a slot. Take a screwdriver and turn this gear manually with the power off. You should be able to unload the discs by rotating this gear. Be careful not to tilt the unit, as the discs will fall out of the tray, and you'll have to open it to retrieve them.

Once you have the discs out, put in only one disc and see if the unit plays. If you get a disc error, you probably need to clean the lens on the laser. Open the unit, use a cotton swab that has been pre-wetted with glass cleaner to wipe the lens on the laser. Do this gently, don't press down hard on the lens. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens. Try loading a disc with the top cover off and see if it spins. If it doesn't spin, try turning it by hand. If you can't turn it by hand, the gears have gotten out of alignment.

In this case, use your screwdriver again, noting which way the gear on the bottom of the unit spins when the drawer is going into the unit. Then turn the gear until it "pops" past one or two teeth, and then you should see the laser assembly rise up and meet the clamp assembly on the top of the tray. These are the most common problems with the 5 disc players that Sony made. Many times I could fix them in 30 seconds or less using this procedure.

YAMAHA CD PLAYER WON'T PLAY


GG  My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player.  The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader.  They get dust on them and simply cannot read.  The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.

Unit is locked


Take the 4 screws from the sides and the two in the top back of the unit. What has probably happened is that you have a cd laying on the bottom of the unit and the arm can not make the entire sweep. cdt
