Cd drawer not opening on sony mxd-d4

Could be bad belts, lack of lubrication on the MD side and even a bad power supply filter capacitor of the larger type. It would need to be seen by a repair Technician to resolve all issues.

Sony CHC-CL5MD cd player is stuck and the cd's wont open. is there a reset button?

you need to replace loading belt, and possibly you need to grease/lube sliding mechanism also - "But this is the last you will to do" Because it is pain in a***s to do that properly. I recently repairing my CHC-CL5MD and spend two or three days to assamble it back properly. Because if you miss gears positions, you will stuck with it for long. So i recomend for replacing loading belt. You will need a belt with 45 mm in diameter.

Maybe here is someone who has LCD screen for CHC-CL5MD? I screwed up with it when cleaning screen inside from dust. screwed up with LCD flat cable - it is so fragile.

Cd skips at beginning of cds

the data on compact disks usually starts on the outside of the disks and spirals to the center. My guess is that the laser unit that reads the data is malfunctioning. It moves on a rail from the outside of the disk to the center. About all you can do if try to clean the laser unit or lens assembly. If you can get to the laser lens, blow it off with canned air. If you can not get directly inside, open the CD drawer and shoot the canned air into the machine through the drawer openings. I suggest that you open the CD drawer with the open button then unplug the machine. At that point the drawer should be open and you will have some access to blow off the CD reader.
good luck cleaning the CD reader!

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.

hi you push the button and it dosent work? maybe the button went bad push harder pull the button out ( if possible) and push with something small and hard you hear anything after you push? if soo then the drawer is stuck or the engine is about to die (not enough power to open the drwer) take a flat screwdriver and shove it (gently) between the carack of the drwer and try helping the drawer out maybe a plastic wheel will brake from this soo be careful in the end these system are ment to start dying after 5 years soo if this is the case sorry wont do any good have a good one
