RCA RS2000 Shelf System CD lid latch

Fixya Staff:

The lid on the CD player won't stay latched. I disassembled the unit and the latch itself seems to be no longer working. There is no part no. but it is identified as LX 2. Does anyone know of a website or supplier from which I could purchase a replacement? I have submitted this request before but have not been able to etrieve the replies.

Thanks in advance for your help

You could go to thrift store and check cd players there .Alot of those latches are the same.Take old one and try to match it there.and throw the rest .LOL .Better than ordering and waiting or sometimes it only comes with complete door.But if you have to order try, or vancebaldwin electronics..

I have an RCA RP-8530 compact audio system and the CD player will not open. I seems stuck. Any suggestions on how to repair?

There may be a CD stuck inside or the eject mechanism may be weak or failed. Disassembly may be required to solve the problem.

There are actually two types of this latch available. Can you tell if yours has a switch in it? You can tell if you can see the bottom. The one with the switch has 2 wire tabs on it.

I had a rca system similar to this little different. It's a problem you'll find in any cd player after awhile. You'll need to replace the laser. It's quite easy google for some instructions to replace a cd laser. Look around for a laser that can read cd's and cd r and cd rw and you'll be ok. The disassembling might be a bit tuff but it's worth it. I had to replace my hifi laser and after i did sound was incredible again no skipping. Make sure when opening your system you power it on and unplug it to make sure all charge is gone wait 30 minutes or so before you go and operate.
