There is a belt for responsible they must replaced sometimes its possible to unlock the tray by a small paperclip but sometimes you have to disassemble the player with a 4 screws in order to achieve the ejection of the traymotor look most lying in front of the tray
Power off the unit. Under the right corner of the drive tray is a small hole (see pic). Find a paper clip that fits the hole. Straighten the paper clip and slowly push it in the hole. The drive tray gears will begin turning forcing the tray open. Gently pull tray all the way out. Power unit back up and see if it starts to respond again.
I don't know if it will completely fix the issue for sure but it is worth a try. I have had good results using this method if the drive is not truly broken.
i know its the tray belt.because,the same thing happened to me.my player would sometimes say error. or sometimes it would not read any cds.because,the tray would not close tightly.im shure its an easy fix.i did mine by my self.
Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.
The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.
As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).
As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.
Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.
If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.
You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.
I have also had the sticking CD Tray problem with my Stanton. I disconnected the until and unplugged the separate read out control panel. I was going to strip it down, but when I plugged the power supply on it worked fine again!!!!. I wwill reconnect and see what happens!!
