The CD player part will not open

When I try to open up the CD player it will not open, and when it's turned on it will continue to display "OPEN" then it says "door" after a while. It did not play anything inside so I thought that a disc was jammed and opened up the back, took everything out, and it still won't work.

SOURCE: doesn't recornize Cd's and won't play cds

I have a AWM-2700U (3 disc changer) that was doing the same thing. I removed the cover and found that the laser lens for the CD player had come out of it "slot". I cleaned it with alcohol and a cotton swab and replaced it in the slot and it has worked for the past 3 months since. Hope it works for you.

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

My rca 5 disk vertically stacked cd changer is stuck. Won't open. How to fix it?

Try this... unplug the unit and turn it upside down.  Have a small screwdriver ready.  No plug the unit in and try to turn the wheel in the large slot clockwize.  When you see the spring clip try to grab the white plastic stop and move it clockwize.  This should eventually open the door.  It did for me.

Buzzing sound and can't open stereo

Again RCA stereos **** for this factor, cheap transformers, replace the transformer and see if that helps as it seems to be the most problem with most RCA systems I've repaired in the past.

Cd Player wont open



I have my manual here. 


"Turn on the system and enter CD mode. While pressing the stop button on the unit( the little circular button with the dark square), press the CD Open/Close button on the unit. 'UNLOCKED' appears on the display."


Hope this helps.

CD Changer spinning continually

i have the same exact problem with mine. what i did was manually pull open the cd deck, stop the disk carousel from spninning by holding it still, then push the deck closed. the cd deck will no longer work, but at least it stops spinning. the auxiliary works fine and so does the radio.
