Re: Koss C220 System

I had this problem too... a lot with my KS2117. I found that unplugging it for a bit (longer the better to make sure there is no power left in that ******.. on mine there was a light that would stay lit for a bit even after I unpluged it) and then once you plug it back in and turn it back on be patient and don't touch anything until it is finished doing whatever Koss needs to do, then try to open it. After this, ALWAYS take your disk out because if you don't you will continue to have this problem.

If you've tried that a few times and still no luck you can always go to plan B. Unplug it and manually open it up with tweezers, take out the disk and close it. When you plug it back in (and let it "do its thing") it may take a couple of opens and closes, but it should work fine after that.

Either way.. get yourself a new DVD player... this is only the beginning and the annoyances get worse from here.

Try to load up a basic CD audio disc and see it works?If it doesn't,you need to repair your unit or buy a GOOD brand new like panasonic,samsung or Denon.

I need a remote for my Koss C220 system.


The original C220 can be hard to come by, but you might try CList or Ebay.

Otherwise, there is a substitute:

The remote below is the recommended substitute remote. Substitute remotes provide similar functionality to the original, although there may be minor differences.

Where can I get a new remote for this system?

1-800-Remotes has a non-original replacement, but the price, ouch!

Sorry, this is all I could find - keep an eye out on EBay, maybe one will turn up. You might be better served by trying to find a universal remote that will work with this model.

Good luck, and if I was any help at all, please rate!

Disk stuck in Koss c928. DVD powers up and says waiting. How do I get the disk out and how do I reset unit

There should be a small hole on the door of the disk tray. insert a paper clip in the hole to manually open the disk tray. remove the disk and see if the tray will open and close normally. If it does put another disk in and see if all is well. If not I would have a repair center look at it.
