SOURCE: Can i fix the tray on Yamaha CDC-585 that will not close?

See if the tray motor drives a belt to move the tray, if so, check if the belt is loose or broken and replace if necessary.

You can find replacement belts in electronic part stores and on internet, you need to measure the diameter of the circle that the belt forms so you'll know what to purchase, but keep in mind that the new belt will be of a slightly smaller diameter than the used one).

Also check the tray homing switches for dirty contacts or physical damage and clean/replace if necessary.

These switches are usually of a touch contact type (something alike relay contacts that are being pressed to make a contact when the tray is in either of the extreme positions - open or closed).

It may as well be something else like tray motor control section, loose wires or connectors, physical damage to any of the tray drive gears or other tray parts, a stuck/obstructed gear... i only described two of the fairly common problems that often cause the tray mechanism to fail or malfunction.

Hope you can fix it...

SOURCE: The disc tray of my Yamaha cdc-745 CD player does open properly.

It's the belt inside the machine - open tray and look in front left side and you will see it. Easy to change out with new one.

How do you replace the belt drive in the Yamaha CDC 615?


The drive belt on my CDC-615 stretched out this year too, and needs to be replaced. Unplug the CDC-615 from power. Remove two screws on the left side of the housing, two screws on the right side of the housing, and one screw from the middle top of the rear panel. This will allow the top panel to be removed.
Temporarily re-connect the CDC-615 to power and power it on. Press the "PlayXchange" or "Open/Close" button, which will drop the laser pickup/play head and spindle, and start the open/close motor. Power the CDC-615 down while the motor is running, to leave the laser pickup/play head and spindle in the "down" position. You should now disconnect the CDC-615 from power once again.
From here, you can simply push on the CD tray from behind, until it's in the fully open position. This will reveal the drive wheels (one large and one small pulley) just beneath the tray on the left side, with the tray facing you. This is where the replacement belt goes.
Reverse the steps to put it back together.

DOOR KEEPS OPENING instead of playing


Hi. there is a tiny limit switch that regulates the actual CD platform drawer(The part where you lay down the CD). this switch if faulty. it is designed to shut of the load motor when the CD tray is fully inside the unit.

this limit switch must be replaced. this is a job for a qualified Yamaha service tech. contact Yamaha for this repair.

Cd Tray


Hi Fred..

I've done about 100 CD transports so far.
Try changing any belts in the unit. On some CD players ,if the open/close belt is bad, it wont allow the CD to be read either.
Also,VERY lightly cleaning the laser lens and dusting the unit out helps too.

CD player damage


This can be a messy and frustrating problem to fix. You have to insure that the gears which control the opening and closing of the disc tray are correctly aligned with the apparatus inside. I have fixed this successfully on my own, but I must say it wasn't easy and involves removing the cover to give you better access, taking the tray out again and fiddling with it until everything is lined up properly. Might be worth sending for repairs.

The CD changer is locked and won't move


Open the player. (Undo the screws) take off the cover and nudge the tray gently take a look around and see if the white plastic gears are locked up. A little gentle prodding should loosen it up. Barring that call Yamaha!

My CD changer's disk tray keeps opening up, refuses to play discs


You have a problem with the try control circuit. It could be the switch is leaking across itself. Could be a problem with the tray motor control IC, or the Microprocessor is not reseting the open tray line correctly, or theres a cam assembly inside the unit that tells the microprocessor where everything is by means of small micro/leaf type switches thats out of alighnment or broken. If its seven years old, you got more then it was designed for and I would'nt invest a dime or the time into the repair of this unit. Time to take a trip to the electronics store. Good luck
