Question about Yamaha CDC-502 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Won't stay closed

This problem is previously listed, but the solution is a little cryptic. My cd player closes, tries to read the cd, ( I can hear it spinning) then opens. Usually the first CD or 2 of the day are okay, then it won't play, just keeps opening. I have had some success with cycling through the discs, coming back to the one I want, then play, but only sometimes... Ideas?

Even if the laser lense cant process the data being read it should not eject and just display disc error or no disc. That's how it normally does. anyway if is is different from yours, try cleaning the laser lense with cotton bud, dampen a bit with rubbing alcohol, then the other end to dry it. rub it in circular motion please and not too hard or excesiove force on it.

lubricate the spindle motor shaft if you can reach, not too much oil, the very thin type household use only. likewise the traverse mech. the mech is not the source of your problem but since you are lubricating the spindle motor then you might as well lubricate the rest of moving parts. try not to put oil in you platine table and other rotating parts like the rubber belts or you'll find another problem later.

Hitachi ax-m71 cd door won't stay closed. Unable


if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.

The cd drawer won't stay closed


the cd drawer will probably use infra-red to sense when the drawer is open or closed or maybe just a gear mechanism, either way these must be clean, I'd take it apart and lean it all with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol

Phillips Portable dvd PET824 won't play dvd; no picture or sound


you can try moving the laser lens that reads the dvd's just don't touch the lens just move that little square it's attached. all you have to do is move it back or forth just a little and leave it and try the cd and if that don't work just keep on moving it around until it reads. it'll work i had that problem on my dvd player and my playstation.

Cd tray will not stay closed it opens as soon as you close it


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, 3 possibilities:
  • tray is not really reaching closed position, belt is loose/worn out (most likely), replacement required;
  • dirt on the laser/optics, false reading, the CD is thinking it has a CD inserted and when it can not read, it ejects. Clean with a CD disc cleaner (likely);
  • virus/malicious software (a possibility), scan/clean.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Lid Closure


OK - There is nothing that drives the door to close and stay closed. There is a little plastic gismo the locks onto a little protruding tongue in the lid keeping it closed. To release the lid, you must press the lid foreward so that it releases the lock in the little plastic gismo. I found this out only after removing the board above the main deck of the player and which, fumble-fingers me, I managed to damage the board and will have to replace it along with the little plastic gismo that holds the door closed. I am not sure if either of these parts are available as I have had the unit for quite a while. This leaves me in a quandry as I really did like the little player. It was a dandy. So, if you ever get an inquiry on how to keep the lid closed on a JMC_800, tell them to replace the little plastic gismo and that will do it.
