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?

Re: won't stay closed

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.

CD Changer won't finish loading a CD

I had the same problem and found the cure for it. The drive belt was streched and when it started to close on the disc, the belt would slip and eventually show loading error..The two belts cost $4.50 at belts plus. Hope this helps you

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

Have Sony cdp-c535 cd player. The door won't stay in. Keeps cycling in and out.

I had the same problem with our 5-CD Sony carousel player CDP-C535 (manufactured Nov 1993). I removed the top metal cover, and loaded five audio CDs into the carousel. After I closed the table, I pressed the carousel tight so that it stayed close, and hit the play button. The CD player tried to push the carousel out with quite a force. I needed to warp me fingers around the front panel to keep the carousel closed. After a few cycles of forcing the carousel to remain close, and caused two separate strong "clucks" from the gear area, the CD carousel became operational again. The diagnosis of gear problem seems right.

CD tray wont stay closed

Try using a CD cleaner. Generally this sort of problem occurs due to dust accumulating on the lens. The CD cleaner comes along with a solution.just spray on the CD and allow it to play in the CD drive. Sometimes the problem might even be due to a virus. Check whether your anti-virus is up to date.

CD opens and closes perpetually. CD won't play.

likely yes. does not sound like coincidence. try this: search ebay for an AS-IS item for $1 and use it for part-swapping. first to swap-the main circuit board holding the micro chip.

Will not play anything.

There is a rubber belt inside the loading mechanism, you should replace it by the new one. Cleaning the optical unit can be of great help also. If you need more info, please advice.
