CD player says "OPEN" when lid is closed

CD player continues to say "OPEN" even after the lid is closed and latched. CD player will not work. I assume it thinks the lid is still open is why it doesn't work.Could it just be dirty? I just purchased this unit used.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: CD tay won't open

If you had any cds inside, you can open the case and see whether there's any cd jammed, with the power switch off! If you didn't have any cds inside, open the case anyway and check if the tray opens or not!!!

Hope it goes well!!

SOURCE: Need help opening my CD changer?

When you turn on the unit, pushing eject or the open/close button should work. If it doesn't work then the unit is not working. See if you can send it back.

HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

911 rear spoiler not closing


Adjust the spring located under the lid in the middle, just lower it n see if it latches. ( assuming your latch on the body side is working, it should be very hard to push it open. )

When I open the dvd lid, and I put the dvd in and close it, the screen still says its open and it wont do anything until the dvd lid is closed. Even though I close it, the player still thinks its open.


There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

The rear hatch latchis open but the latch is in the closed position. Thus it will not close.


try using the handle while prying up on the locking clip, the pin should pop up allowing you to close the lid

It says off and thats all


CD stuck in player.
Unplug.
Remove lid, small black screws on side and along the top of the back.
Fiddle with latch on left side near front that controls the door.
Once latch is released, open door and remove all CD's.
Make sure 2 CD's are not **** in player.
Move CD cage carefully. It should run smoothly along. If not it is locked in 'switched off mode' or CD is stuck half in and half out. If CD stuck fish CD out carefully.
Plug back in without any CD's in.
System should run back and forward and then lock at left hand end.
Put lid on and try one CD in one slot.

Won't play, says open even when the lid is closed.


Well , from your bumping experiences , I would say the latch/hook/switch that tells the player that its lid is closed is loose.Carefully close your lid and see the parts that touch and you will find the latch/hook/switch.Manually play with it (or tape it down!) for a quick fix.For a more permament fix you might have to open it and fashion (or buy) a new switch.

DGB-600BC


I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.

Display reads "open"


Hi! on my Rio the contacts that tell it if its open or close are at the hinge side, 2 metal ribbons that come down from the cover side and touch other metal parts below them on the base side. I'm not sure if this is the same on your model but check it, if not, then on yours it might detect open/close on the latch mechanism, so check to see if the latch action is normal, or if it feels ****, sticky etc. either way - locate the open/close sensors, and make sure they look allright, not bent, broken or dirty, and see what you can do about it. have a nice day!
