Re: front door won't open

Open the player wit the door ejected then clean all dust particles inside it especially below the door and on the way where the door closes ... and then also clean the rubber belt & near by which is connected to dc motor... and clean the lens also... remember clean only wit dry clothes...

bye cleaning lens it will solve ur playing problems slightly..
and by cleaning near by & bottom of door and door way solves ur half way ejection problem

Player was moved discs fell forward. Now when the player comes on it makes a horrible sound. Can't get door to open

you're going to have to open the player by removing the top cover and returning the discs to their correct places on the carousel. If you've coded the discs' locations and disc names it will be a pain to have to re-code them, I don't know if the memory will clear if you take the discs out and power the unit up and it finds they're not there.
I believe the discs being out of place are what is preventing the door from opening. It's operated by a motor located under the right front of the carousel, and the only way to get it it is to remove the carousel.... which isn't hugely easy but it can be done, you'll have to take the top stuff off inside, unplug at least several of the cables etc so you can move the top board out of the way. Make sure that all the discs are back in their places on the carousel, OR removed, before you turn the unit back on.

This sounds like the disc is not completing the load sequence. This can occur if hte load belt slips and requires replacement. Try pressing play without a disc in place. If the the tray opens, then the problem is one within the command processing and will require additional diagnostics. At this point, you should get a detailed repair estimate. We should be able to guide you through the actual repair with that info.

Need drawer belt for Yamaha CDC-805 CD changer - the one needed that opens and closes the changer's door - not sure where to get it or the part number. I thought I ordered the right one and got the 'drive'...

Any decent repair shop should have a large supply of replacement belts. The Part number isn't necessary. Just take the old one in and get a new one just 2mm smaller than the original. Some repair shops won;t sell them because they don't want you repairing your own property but a decent shop should sell you one.

Sony cdp-c545 won't open

Without turning the unit upside down, look at the bottom of the player. You should see a small round hole toward the front of the unit, with a white plastic part inside with a slot. Take a screwdriver and turn this gear manually with the power off. You should be able to unload the discs by rotating this gear. Be careful not to tilt the unit, as the discs will fall out of the tray, and you'll have to open it to retrieve them.

Once you have the discs out, put in only one disc and see if the unit plays. If you get a disc error, you probably need to clean the lens on the laser. Open the unit, use a cotton swab that has been pre-wetted with glass cleaner to wipe the lens on the laser. Do this gently, don't press down hard on the lens. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens. Try loading a disc with the top cover off and see if it spins. If it doesn't spin, try turning it by hand. If you can't turn it by hand, the gears have gotten out of alignment.

In this case, use your screwdriver again, noting which way the gear on the bottom of the unit spins when the drawer is going into the unit. Then turn the gear until it "pops" past one or two teeth, and then you should see the laser assembly rise up and meet the clamp assembly on the top of the tray. These are the most common problems with the 5 disc players that Sony made. Many times I could fix them in 30 seconds or less using this procedure.

Stuck cd discs

I think there are a couple of faults here. The first one is maybe a faulty motor on the eject mechanism. The second one is a faulty laser unit as it is not scanning the disc. Hope this helps.

GG  My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player.  The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader.  They get dust on them and simply cannot read.  The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.
