SOURCE: RCD-W10 Sony CD player/recorder left tray

Two things generally make this happen. One is electrical and the other physical, First check to see if a light comes on when it is supposed to be working. If not, you'll likely need to get it back to the shop from whence you bought it. You don't say whether this item is new or you've had it some time. The other physical problem is a disc left in the drawer which is not 'sat' down properly, effectively jamming the tray. If this is the case you will see the drawer trying to open. On the front of the CD drawer you will see a very small hole (big enough for an unbent and straightened paperclip) that is used for manually opening the tray. The pin does not have to go in very far and only slight resistance should be felt before the tray drawer opens. If this does not work ........ back to the shop where they open it up and sort the problem. I do not encourage people to open electronic deveices thyemselves as ther are many delicate parts inside that could inadvertantly be damaged. Despite which you would be invallidating any gaurantee you have on the product.

SOURCE: Why does it say "no

You're trying to use a blank data disc. Use one that says "audio' or 'music". It's in the manual.

You can remove the door handles and power window switches and the screws in the door pad and push up on the pad and it will come out of the track and then you can see the motor and replace the part yourself. Hope this helps.

Power window wont roll up on driver's side

If, when you hit the button, you do not hear anything at all, it is most likely the power window motor is burned out. If you hit the button, and can hear the motor running in the door, your window is either off it's track, or the motor is worn out where it connects to the cracking mechanism and is not catching it. Popping off the door panel will give you access and you'll be able to see first hand what it is doing once you hit the button. Less likely reasons are a disconnected switch, wire short at the switch, or condensation on the switch.

Right side cd will not open. Took off cover and if I push down slightly on the apparatus in front of the ribbon the door will open but only if I push down on that point

There is a small round rubber belt which allows a motor to open the tray. Open the tray, as you say you can, Remove the mains plug. Remove the mounting screws for the deck and you will find the small drive belt underneath. I would recommend buying 2 belts and replacing them both. The diameter is 1 or 2 mm less than the old one (because they stretch)

Eject botton does not respond

there is a tiny drive belt connecting a small motor to the loading tray.when they stretch,they run but do not open the door.if that is the case,putting your ear on the machine while hitting the eject button will enable you to hear the loading motor running inside.if you do not hear anything,it is a different problem

Door will not slide automatically; emits loud beeping noise

Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?
