It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.

There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....

I have a 6 cd changer in my 2005 chysler Pacifica that stopped playing. Shows error message no cd.


My experience with CD/DVD players has been, unfortunately, that when the trays stop opening and/or closing, or when error messages start regularly, it's history. Hope yours turns out differently, but I wouldn't count on it. It will cost you as much or more to fix it than to replace it. if you live near a large junkyard you might try to retrieve one there, but the fact that your car is 13 yrs. old will make that tougher.

I put 2 cd's on top of eachother. now the cd player wont open but it will turn on. when i turn it on it says mechanical error.


You could try gently sliding a thin blade in the top of the tray slot to hold the CDs down whilst, equally gently prising the underside of the tray with a small screwdriver (it may help to press teh open/eject button at the same time).

Onkyo C-707chx cd tray jammed won't open won't play


I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.

Onkyo c707chx...


This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.

The unit can not read the discs. It will search through all 6 positions then quit. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this with your results.

The little drive belt that operates the CD lift mechanism is likely busted. I just started looking for belts now.
