Re: CD Discs have been displaced inside the unit while...
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.
Re: CD Discs have been displaced inside the unit while...
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

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.
You cannot bypass the sensors but you can try reversing their position so that the sun isn't hitting the receiving unit. You can also move them back from the door or use something like the tube inside a roll of toilet tissue to shade the lens.
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.
I solvwed the problem by removing the cover and found 2 discs jammed into the same slot. removed them and put them in the proiper slos, put back cover, gently tightening the screws incase it happens again.

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.
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.
You need to open it up to check the parts inside. First look around to see if there is any plastic parts that are damaged. This might account for the noises inside. If you can not see anything wrong. Get a magnifying glass or lens and look at the lazer lens. Make certain the power is NOT on for any of these tests. If you see any odd light patterns or damage on the lazer lens it will not play discs. Unless it was an expensive model it will not be worth repairing if the lens is damaged. Do not open the unit if the model is still under warranty. In which case contact the maker of the unit.
Some CD/DVD units have a manual opening mechanism, it looks like a small hole on the front of the unit, try using a needle or a metal rod that fits by inserting it into the hole and pushing it should open the unit in case it got stuck somehow.
If afterwards it continues to work then all's good else you'll have to bring it to a workshop.
