Question about Yamaha CDC-685 5-Disc CD Changer

3 Answers

Note: CDC-625 unit won't open, no discs inside

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?

Wait, wait!

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.

How to fix Magnavox compact disc carousel changer that has no sound?


Is there sound through the headphone jack? Have you tried other audio cables to connect it? Look for a reset button or with all discs removed and the unit powered on, hold the power button for 20 seconds and see if that resets it. This works for many electronic computer controlled devices.

How do you replace the belt drive in the Yamaha CDC 615?


The drive belt on my CDC-615 stretched out this year too, and needs to be replaced. Unplug the CDC-615 from power. Remove two screws on the left side of the housing, two screws on the right side of the housing, and one screw from the middle top of the rear panel. This will allow the top panel to be removed.
Temporarily re-connect the CDC-615 to power and power it on. Press the "PlayXchange" or "Open/Close" button, which will drop the laser pickup/play head and spindle, and start the open/close motor. Power the CDC-615 down while the motor is running, to leave the laser pickup/play head and spindle in the "down" position. You should now disconnect the CDC-615 from power once again.
From here, you can simply push on the CD tray from behind, until it's in the fully open position. This will reveal the drive wheels (one large and one small pulley) just beneath the tray on the left side, with the tray facing you. This is where the replacement belt goes.
Reverse the steps to put it back together.

Disc door keeps opening.


The drawer belt may also lift the laser up to meet the CD . If the belt is bad , the CD player will kick out the CD.
Change the belt.

If you trust yourself enough to open the case w/o breaking stuff, then open it up UNPLUGGED, locate the laser lens (small,clear,plastic) gently clean the lens with a swab of lens cleaner for glasses.
Also clean the chrome runners that the laser assembly tracks on.
