Model A40 cd player

When I place a cd in the player and close the drawer, the drawer light goes off and on continuously. I am told that there is no cd in the player.

    I don't know how to check the motherboard. And the Toshiba is three years old. Now, the drive makes a slight grinding noise, then the light stays on as if the cd is being read. I am told that there is no cd in the drive.

    Thanks for replying.

This was the same problem faced by me.Check the mother board and if you are still on warranty go to the manufacturer.

The display flashes "closed" and I can't open the cd drawer when pressing the open/close button. Is there a reset please ?

Try removing power from the unit, let it set two minutes without power and power it up again. See if the problem continues.
Make sure the cd drawer is complete closed and flush with the front panel. If not, something could be stuck inside.
Turn off power and remove cord from wall for next step:
There is a small hole generally on the flat face of the cd drawer through which a bent straight paper clip can be pushed gently until you hit a mechanical stop. Pushing slightly harder at this point should cause the cd drawer to move open mechanically. Gently pull the cd drawer open until you can remove any CD still inside.
Gently push the drawer closed again and restore power to the unit and see if the problem returns.
Would be nice to have manufacturer and model number of the CD player.

The cd drawer will not stay closed to play a cd.Any ideas please?

On any make of player there is a switch under the tray that closes when the tray goes in, I think it's called a kill switch. Take out the mech and see if that's in place.

Cd has fallen behind disk tray and drawer won't close

Remove the metal case/top from the whole unit. See screws at back and any at sides. You should then be able to see and remove the CD upwards, without removing the drawer.

Cambridge Audio AZUR 840C Transport Jamming when disk is loaded

The above comment is complete and utter nonsence !
Here's what you do . Take the lid off , take off the top of the cd transport marked "CD 1 Low Jitter Compact Disc Transport" held on with 2 screws , rince it under warm water (its made of plastic) and refit . Its a build up of dust . Yoy will have to do this every 2-3 years . P.S Leave on "stand-by" because you will do more damage to the circuit boards by cutting the power continually .

A cd is stuck in 5 cd player. Drawer won't close. (Sony) When drawer did open/close, it just started making a noise - maybe belt wearing out.

Without knowing the model number, this is pure speculation:

There are some Sony units that can easily get "out of time" in the loading mechanism. This can be caused by a broken trace in a ribbon cable or a defective sensor. Some models can get out of alignment or timing if you push the drawer rather than pushing the close button. Please update this with the model number, and I should be able to give you more details.

CD drawer stuck, then won't close

1. Most of the player drawer fixed over the chasis for a rigid support
2. try to remove the drawer safely without damagind the chasis and drive mechanism
3. there might be some shaft jam.
4. Look for the thread. how does the player drawer moves in and out
5. there may be some sensors to sense the door close/open. if it is jammed then open/close function cannot be done. why because this problem occurs
6. unwear the mechanism read the mechanism moving technique. see which has got jammed.
7. if you feel too risky then service centre... all the best
