Cd player keeps opening with cd in it

I can put a cd on the cd tray then push close. It will open right back up again.  Then i hit close again and it opens up again.  Very frustrating.  Also it will do this even without a  cd.  I cannot find any info on how to fix this.

Help please

Re: cd player keeps opening with cd in it

Some small item would appear to be obstructing complete closure
With the drawer open take a good look in side.
Also near the  open button you  should see a small pin hole[sometime on the back of the unit]
 This is the emergency eject device in case you get a jam and is operated with the end of a paper clip.
give it a poke with the drawer open  then again closed
See what happens

How to open stuck CD tray

Most CD players have a small hole in the front bezel, below the disc tray door. If you straighten a large paperclip and push it straight into this hole, about 1.5 inches, the door should pop open enough for you to pull it completely open with your fingers.

It may take a couple of tries, as you need to hit a small metal tab directly inside the hole, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in.

Question about Philips MC-50 CD Shelf System When I push the cd open-close buttons on the player, the disc tray does not come out. When I select a CD# it says reading, but nothing happens. The player

You have to fear a mechanical defect. In the player are gears and rubber bands involve in the open / close system. If on is defect, or even the motor is defect it won't open at all. When you don't have electronic skills, don't try this yourself.

Owners manual

Place a flatblade screwdriver in the lower lip of the drawer, and manually force the tray out. It is okay to pull, you won't break the tray. It rides on a straight rail gear. After pulling on it, it should eject normally, but stay open. If it closes right away, there must be some blockage within the case. Using a flashlight, check to make sure no foreign object is blocking the tray. If the tray stays open, that is a good sign. Push it in and see if it closes on its own. Try pushing the button to eject. If the tray does not come out, take it in for service. If it comes out, perhaps the problem is solved.

Recording trouble

Hi again,

I understand. Must be a glitch somewhere. Anyways, I already posted possible solutions here your original posting/problem. They were:
1. Power on the Philips FW-R7, leave the left tray empty and closed. Open the tray and put in a recorded CD (not a CDR but a regular CD from your music collection), close the right tray. Wait a couple of seconds as the FW-R7 reads the CD. Now open the tray, remove the music CD and insert your CDR. The FW-R7 should read the CDR without the error message and record to the CDR from any source. Let me know if this works for you;
2. laser cleaning or realignment (would need a service center);
3. try using lower then 40X blank CDs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

CD player problem

Seems like the Timingfor the Tray Open / close has got disturebed. Could be a bad drive gear, or as simple as a loose Drive belt. Get it checked by a professional.
