Try the specialist audio forums. In reality, you just need a spring of the same type. Try an industrial fasteners store or an electrical hobby shop..

Testimonial: "thanks. But there must be a couple of million different little Springs and I do not know of any brick and mortar store in the neighborhood that has that sort of assortment that I could dig through. Can you, perhaps, suggest an online source? Thanks again. Nobody else even bother to reply. Dave"

    Unfortunately it isn't going to be the sort of thing you will find in a spares shop for that particular model and Cambridge Audio say they only give support to current models. If you take the back off, you may well find the spring lying in the bottom of the unit as the gentleman in the video found the pieces to the broken hinge. There should be clues when you remove the back, look for holes in the hinge, or place where metal has rubbed. As a complete guess, I would say it could be of two types. I long coiled spring with a hook or circle on both ends, or a coiled spring with two arms like a clothes peg. I'll see if I can find links to illustrate.

    This Forum talks about the model and its woes.

    This is what I get when I look for replacement springs for that unit.

    or this but much finer. This is for a folding bed I think

    Aha, both ideas in the same image! The bottom spring would clip to the body with the small end and then the larger end would clip around the arm of the hinge.

    ebay seem to have a good range if you can work out the type. That hinge is fairly fragile, so it wont be anything too strong.

Display gives message;Top is open,but it's closed.

Your lid sensor maybe broken.
to check open the printer like you would when you put new ink in and you will see a white sticking down from the lid on the right side. what that does is depresses a switch which tells the printer if the lid is closed or open. if you put your hand under the tab and feel in the hole if the you feel a tab there and it moves and then springs back in position then it is ok but if it is not there or doesn't spring back then the printer is shot.
also call lexmark if it is there but keeps coming up saying lid is open, and they will walk you through some quick fixes that may or may not fix it.

If the lid will not stay open, there should be a small spring in the hinge. I am not sure of your model, But some have a safety interlock that will not allow operation with the lid open. These usually have a feature of raising and lowering the basket with the lid closed like some chemistry experiment!
What's wrong with a manual wire basket?

If the spring is not fitted correctly, or missing, it's fiddly but not impossible to replace.

Dropped unit and out popped a spring looking piece.  I cannot tell how it reattaches.  the player still works but the lid won't stay open when changing disks.

It's just the spring that pushes your lid back up, it's on the far corner of the lid where the lower part attaches to the top part, you need to get it in place there again...

PS@ Discs Not spinning

The spring for the drive door is a contact switch.make sure the spring contacts the flat bit of metal beneath it.test by pressing firmly in this area with a disk in . if the drive starts spining that will be ya problem.( the spring is on the left hand side of the hinge,is what holds the drive door open)
