Question about Yamaha CDC-685 5-Disc CD Changer
The Yamaha CDC-625 compact 5-disc player in my sound system has stopped opening. The power works, there's no disc in the machine, and I can hear a humming sound like a motor, but the unit doesn't open. It's an old machine (bought in 1992) but very lightly used. Is it worth trying to get it fixed?
I bought one of these units from a flea market for $5.00. It said the tray wouldn't open. I picked it up, and noticed the same thing you did. Humming motor, but the tray stayed put.
I opened it up to check things out, and all that was wrong was a (very) stretched out belt on the pulley that opened the tray. I replaced it with a rubber band and it has worked ever since. Once the rubber band wears out I'll replace it with a proper belt, but for now, it was a 2 minute fix that's lasted around 11 months so far. I really, really like this player, and plan to keep it working for a long time!

Yes, its the belt that is the issue. I found an o-ring the same size in the plumbing section and it works as good as new now

Hi, this is a failed load motor. the windings are busted, in return, making it weaker than normal. it will not be able to move the gear assembly in this case.
The bad news is m the actual replacement parts for your unit has been discontinued. this will make it hard to repair.
I would cut the loss and just by a new unit. you wont be able to purchase any repair parts for this unit.
