Loading tray will not load or close-reopens immediately

The drawer for loading cd's closes but reopens immesdiately. I have taken out all the cd's and still will not stay closed. What does happen is the drawer (loading tray) opens back up as to accept a request to load or change cd's. I have loaded the tray with cs's but as quickly as it closes it reopens.

Sounds like the tray position switch has gone wrong.

CD tray won't open or close on onkyo dx-c606 cd changer.

Yes! it sounds very likely that a small loading belt has stretched, or the loading motor is not working, this is not an easy repair because the gears are timed and synced to work together, if the unit has a loading belt pull tray all the way out and look in the empty tray, may be visable! if you can remove it without taking it apart all the better, have a Tv repair shop size up the belt for replacement.

When i switch my teacpdh300 cd player on the drawer open and when i close it, it reopens

Check the tray loading belt of your cd player. If the loading belt is over sized then this problem can occur. Normally the loading belt will become over sized after a few years of use according to the weather condition. . If so the loading tray will not go inside fully and will not engage with close sensing switch. if so the it will open automatically without any external command .Normally in all players the loading belt will be under the loading tray near the frond side of the mechanism. check the same. keep the player in eject position remove power and then try to replace the belt.

Player will not play a loaded CD and No CD message comes up Also CD drawer opens and shuts on it`s own !!!

the tray opening by itself could be a faulty limit switch on the tray mechanism

the switch tells the system if the tray has reached the open or closed position.

if it closes then opens itself then this is the most likely

check that first

could be closing then opening without actually loading due to the switch

you will need to open it up to find the switches

usually at the bottom front were the tray goes in

ITS cd tray is revolving when we press insert button . tray moves inward and it do't select any cd .and tray comes out again. main problem is it do't select any cd

You have a slack loading belt under the tray.The loading action is not being completed because of it.
The Cd lifting mechanism requires more torque than the tray rotating action. If you put your ears close to the tray you will hear a belt slipping sound after the loading tray goes in . If you push the disc motor assembly with your hand from underneath the action sometimes get completed and the cd will start playing. Any way you cannot be doing this all the time, the belt needs changing. Its a set of two belts, one very small for the tray rotation and a thicker/bigger one for loading mechanism.

CD-R drawer won't open. CD is in drawer.

there are different reasons for stuck up disk tray

1. load belt is worn out already
2. driving gear for mechanical loading disc tray has broken teeth.
3. cd got stuck up between the loading disc tray and the plate holder.

You will need unplug your device first and then unscrew the cover of your unit and find it yourself to know what causes it not to open.

once the cover is out, the mechanical loading disc tray will be exposed.
1. remove the stuck cd
2. plug the unit and turn on, to get access the belt, wait for the disc tray to move to the pull out position, then unplug your device.
3. plug the unit and turn on, if the disc tray do not move, use your finger to move the tray and see which gear is broken.

belts are available from this site. just have to measure the correct diameter of the belt in your unit

Technics SC-CH515 CD Tray Does Not Stay Open

I DO NOT think that problem related with CD cleaner
3 possibility here
1 The loading belt was lose it can not open fully to reach the switch open when the time limited was out as program design from system control it automatic close
2 The loading gear system out of position 1 tooth
3 Dry joints on switch open and close or connector from CD tray to system control intermittent contact
In any case it require a qualifier Tech from Panasonic to reset the timimg gear or service
I hope that give you some ideas if you need further info or service manual I am willing to help you out

Tray will not stop opening and closing

You have to open the cabinet ..with the power off!! with tray open look at the laser it should be in the cd home position..move the laser toward away from the spindle motor or should see a switch with a cover over it,it may be black or white or clear..the is your laser home switch..with your finger or small screw driver gentely push the switch towards you or bend it towards you.with the cover off.plug the unit up.Watch the laser as it moves away from you towards the cd spindle, it it stops and the tray moves in, and the cd mech chucks .you should see the laser turn on and see the objective lens move up and down..if it does not..and it continues with your original problem the you have to retime the tray and loading gear..try this first..
