5 disc CD changer door jammed

I don't know what caused this to happen but my CDs are stuck in the system. The door used to open all the time without playing any of the Cds. When i kept closing the door it kinda "kick-start" it back into normal and I was able to play my CDs again and get them out. I put 3 of my most popular Cds in the and allowed them to play continuously and then they stop playing, the system was stuck again and now the door refuses to open when I tried to get my CDs out! When I press the open key it keeps saying "error" and when I press play it acts as though it's changing discs but it's not and you hear the noise of it getting stuck. I peered through the vents and found the cds till in their position but not moving at all. please help.

SOURCE: Does not play CDs

If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. If it wont help and you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the system and look for Problems with the door opening/closing: Steps: 1. Make sure the drawer-loading belt is still tight and elastic. If not, it can be replaced with a belt obtained from an electronic-parts supplier. The replacement should be of equal or slightly greater thickness and should fit snugly but not so tightly that it strains the motor. 2. Check for broken or loose gears and have them replaced. 3. Check for obvious sources of contamination such as pet hair or foreign objects that are preventing smooth operation of moving parts. Small children have a habit of inserting items into CD players. 4. Use electronics-grade contact cleaner to clean the door-position contacts.

Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck

Sl-eh790 compactdusc changer

Have you opened the case?

Inside the actual cd drive unit there should be a couple of small rubberband like belts. You can try replacing them.

It may help.

If that doesn't work ,it may be time for a replacement.

I have a tendancy to hang on to old audio equipment long after it should have been replaced. It's just hard to let them go!

Good luck with it!

Hi, The cd disc is not in his place inside the multichanger, you must open the appliance and try to take out the cd without forcing, otherwise you wil brake the mechanical system,
after this the system will work well.

It is a 5 disc changer. The drawer will not open and it now has 4 cd's stuck inside the changer. It also will not play any of those "stuck" cd's.

THis happens when the drawer is jammed. Turn off the unit and turn it on and then use the disc skip from the remote so that the cds inside will change and then press the Open button.

2003 Ford Expositi CD Player will not play or eject

Does the CD door open or is it stuck open? If it is open look to see if you have a jammed CD. This happened to me and this is what I did. A CD had gotten off track and jammed the CD changer turn table. I stuck a little key in the slot and was able to pull the CD out. This fixed my problem. Hope it helps.

Bose Wave Music Sys & 3 CD Changer

I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.

CD malfunction

It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.
