Question about Stanton C.501 Dual MP3 CD Player

1 Answer

CD Tray on one side doesn't open.

I have a C.501 DJ CD player and the cd tray on deck 1 does not open unless I help it. When you push the open button, it opens about a hair or 2 and makes a thumping like it's hitting something. Once in a while it will open, but rarely. I tried deck 2 and it works fine, but I'm not sure what is causing deck 1's tray not to open. Thanx...

Well if you want to DIY you should open the coves, spay some oil on the mechanics and ensure they are running smoothly, if you spray grease on lens you will damage it, be careful.

Right side cd will not open. Took off cover and if I push down slightly on the apparatus in front of the ribbon the door will open but only if I push down on that point


There is a small round rubber belt which allows a motor to open the tray. Open the tray, as you say you can, Remove the mains plug. Remove the mounting screws for the deck and you will find the small drive belt underneath. I would recommend buying 2 belts and replacing them both. The diameter is 1 or 2 mm less than the old one (because they stretch)

I have a CDX-602 CD Player. I was on a gig the other night I placed a cd in the tray. I pressed the button to close the tray and a cord was wedged so that the tray would not close. Naturally the tray...


The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy

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.

CD tray doesn't open


ok there is a small hole below the tray, use a small paper clip
wire to push in that whole, push and the tray should come out.

if that doesnt work take cd player out, push plastic clips on side
and top at front , front plate should come off .

where small whole was in front look behind plate you will see a small little metal arm push on that

should be able to clear cd player then .

CD tray got knocked off track


You can try to fix mechanics by takin apart cd, remove tray and try open/close operation WITHOUT tray. Leave it as OPEN, then try to place tray back in fully open position, but be careful, you have to pres OPEN and then unplug it from outlet to avoid electric shock risk. BE CAREFUL!!!

Stanton C500 Dual CD Player


hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.
