Nakamichi cd cassette player 1 not spinning discs

There's a Music Bank 7-disc player in use in my bedroom these days. Nice unit, but they used to come in for service once in a while- from what I could tell, these units don't 'park' the CD drawers on a soft power off- they simply shut down. When powered up again, they sometimes let the disc last in play slide off the tray & jam the machine. I've had no issues, as long as I always hit stop, wait for it to park, and then shut off. The analog output's sound has been very good (has a coax out as well).

I can't for the life of me see where the disc tray sits in the MG5200 printer. The manual instructions don't help

There are two doors in the front of the printer. the main one that catches the paper, then inside this door, hinged just above where the normal paper is ejected from, is another smaller door. open this and the disk tray slides in there.
Hope this helps Regards GM

How to take laptop hard drive out ?

Turn over the laptop. you should see a rectangular lid with usually two screws holding it down. remove the screws. lift up the lid and slid the hard drive away from the connector. they are usually mounted in a tray. remove the four screws holding it in the tray. mount the new hard drive the same way as the old one was in the tray. then reverse the removal instruction to reinstall it. careful you don't lose any of the screws. this is general instructions for most laptops. my old dell inspiron hard drive mounted from the side of the case but again only two screws held it in.

How do you replace a hard drive on toshiba 1715 xcds

Before starting you will need to make sure you have a small cross-head screwdriver. Also make sure that you do not have wet hands!
Power off the laptop and unplug it. Turn it over so that the base is facing upwards. Now look for a panel with a Hard Disc Drive symbol on it, the symbol will look something like this:
Remove the screws from this panel (making sure to put them somewhere safe so that you son't lose them). You should then see something like this:
Its them simply a matter of sliding the disc drive out from the contacts (in the photo above you would slide it to the left, if it doesn't seem to work one way try the other, it may need a firm push, but don't be too rough). One the drive has been slid away from the contacts, simply lift it out.
The drive will almost certainly be in a "cradle", a metal panel screwed to the hard disc which keeps it in place when the computer is assembled (see photo below).
You will need to remove the cradle, which will involve removing about 4 screws from the long edges. Do not lose the cradle or the screws. Also take note of the orientation of the cradle with respect to the hard disc, as to put the new one in, you will need to put the cradle on the new drive before putting the drive into the laptop.
Just follow the above instructions in reverse to put the new drive in. If you need further guidance, the tutorial below is quite good (its where I got the images from):
Good luck.

I want to buy a recovery dics for toshiba laptop satellite l675d - s7052. But i don't know where it's bought.

I do not believe Toshiba sells recovery discs, instead they have a utility called Toshiba recovery disc creator. Which should already be on your laptop if not download from Toshiba website.

How does dvd,cd seat in optical drive drawer?

Label side up, press the disc onto the hub in the center of the open tray. it will snap into place. (Be sure to support the tray, as some discs press harder than others, and you don't want to break the tray.) Slide tray into laptop.

Removing the disc is done by pressing the eject button, sliding the tray out, then grasping the outer edges of the disc, and pulling up, while simultaneously pressing down on the hub with your index finger.

Slide tray won t seat on projector

Try a couple of things:
1. Turn on the projector & cycle it in "Reverse" 3 or 4 times (without the tray). Do the levers that move the tray move correctly? If so, do you have another tray you can try? If another tray works correctly, follow Step #2.
2. The 140-Tray has to be in the "zero" position for the tray to seat on the projector. Check to make sure the Locking Ring (the ring is in the center of the tray & keeps the slides from coming out) is TIGHT on the top of the tray. Once checked, turn the tray upside-down. Refer to Page 8 in your owners' manual (if you don't have one, I've made an image of the page, below). You have to make sure the plate on the bottom of the tray is lined up at the notch at shown.jauburn_12.jpg

If this helps, please leave positive feedback for me @ If you need more help, please re-post!!

I placed the CD in the CD driver and slid it into the laptop. The CD itself did not play and when I went to press the release button in the CD driver so that it would slide out again it became jammed

Hi, there is a small hole located on the front of all cd/dvd drives. With a paperclip you can open the disc tray by pressing the release mechanism through the hole (note press hard, it won't damage it).
Good luck!

My console wont read any of my discs

Typically its a problem with the disc tray, a variety of solutions can be gently tapping on the top of the xbox immediately after the disc tray closes. Another suggestion is, and don't do this very often, but when the disc tray closes, immediately turn your xbox 90 degrees backwards so the Disc tray is facing up at the ceiling. If these fail, you may simply just have to play with the disc tray, grab it while closing, dont tug too much, slam it closed really fast. Microsoft really is **** when it comes to making things last, but these should work somewhat, you might just have to buy a new xbox if they don't ever work.
