    Same problem. I lifted the handle and put a wood shim at each edge to hold it closed. Cumbersome, but it works...

    I haven't yet been able to find a parts source.

Why doesn't lid stay closed?


The flimsy lid latch is defective or broken. You may have to improvise a repair to get it working again.

Hello Im wondering if you could help me my 7year old daughter got the Hello Kitty boom box for her birthday in Jan and she really loves it the problem is for no apparent reason the lid will not close


You are right, the black clip holds the lid down and releases it, the only way this can be fixed is a replacement part, Tv repair shops may carry or have access to get one.

Not work CD Player


HelloCheck the CD spins inside it, when we close the lid. if not, check the lid. There is a small swelling like formation at its edge that will get into the CD player, when we close it. This will hit on a micro switch inside the set, which in turn send a CD in signal to its system control IC. If this signal does not reach the main system control IC, it won't sense that CD is in. If this switching process is OK, when you close the CD lid, make sure that the CD mechanism has the trouble, and need service. OK.

Durabrand model cd-1493...cd won't play


A friend of mine has one of these, and the same thing happened. Toss in a CD, and the unit reads it, but doesn't play it. Looking at the CD components, all appears to be well, and I was even able to trick the unit into turning on using a paper clip to hold down the "lid closed" switch.

What I found the issue to be was with the lack of downward or clamping pressure the CD was getting with the lid closed. If you notice, with the lid open, there is a round part that "floats" and serves two purposes...one is to align the CD and keep it steady, and the other is to grip it, as the CD's do not snap into the lower centering piece, but rather just sit on it.

I solved the problem by placing a rubber o-ring on it, The one I used is about 1/16" (1mm +/-) and about 1 inch (25mm) diameter. I used some rubber cement to attach it to the top piece. I'm not sure how long this will hold, but it's worth a shot. I figure keeping a CD in the tray will help keep the ring in place as well.

Good luck!

My machine has the same problem and I got the same response from the company. I discovered a quick fix. With needle nose plyers I removed the wire from the corner of the lid that holds the lid open. Without the wire, the lid remains closed and the CD will play. The downside is that its tricky to open the lid. I've been using the piece of wire I removed to gently pry the lid open. I think I will glue a knob or ribbon to the top of the lid to make it easier to open. This isn't a perfect fix, but it was quick & free and now I can use my machine!
