My clock/radio/CD 740 is refusing to accept a CD in the CD slot. Something inside the slot is obstructing its entrance.I have never put anything else into the slot and no one else lives here or has visited lately! If I need a qualified repair person, where can I send the unit?
I really like these radios, by the way, and have 1 of the radios w/out CD, 2 with the CD and one of the HD radio's. I'm one of those people that needs multiple alarms to get up so I set several of them to turn on at different times in the morning and it works great!
I have had this problem twice and I've unplugged the unit then after I plug it back in I hold down the CD eject button while I turn it back on. The display then says something like "CD Reset" and it resets the CD mechanism to the beginning of the cycle. This moves the CD holder to the correct position. (I assume the problem is due to the CD positioning device stopping in the wrong place after it ejects a CD, for whatever reason)
I hope this helps. Mine did the same thing with no CD inside.
I listen to the radio a lot, and by having these in several rooms, I can listen to radio without having to have it turned up super loud when I am walking around the house. I also use this at the High School where I am a science teacher. It produces enough quality audio to fill the classrooms with music or playing podcasts of "Science Friday."

I spent $300 for the thing 10 yrs ago, then paid$125 for a display repair, now its crapping out repetitively and I refuse to pay ungodly sums to repair it again only to have the next thing fail in a few yrs. So, I plan to gut mine and convert to a speaker dock for my iPhone - small mini-amps are under $50 now. I plan to leave the speakers in the case since they are properly ported and sound great as is. I'll pull the speaker wires out the back and mount the amp on top - might not look pretty but it'll work just fine and some of these little amps have FM tuners, SD card readers and remotes. won't be as elegant but it'll sound good.
Some CD players have a tiny hole on the door or tray that slides out. Stick a paperclip in the hole and it will release the tray. Yours may not have this, but it has to have some manual way of opening.
See my answer to cd740 sound cutting out. Fuse is inside near the transformer. You'll need to disassemble. There is a good write up for a question about getting to the faceplate. Briefly, there is a sub base that has screws hidden behind the rubber feet pads which peel off easily. The front speaker grills PPP off easily and it hides some screws. The rear plate also has to come off. Check those other questions, the answers will help.
The CDs you inseting is not loading properly into the mechanism. Check its loading belt. If loading belt is loose, thie tyep of fault will occur. Check the loading motor also. If the pulling power of loading motor go less, the discs will not load properly and will ejected out as it loaded into. There is no other possiblilities other than this to check. OK.
