The mechanism works fine. But the tray won't open. I found that while pressing forward on the top of a pivoting disk-like thing that apparently rests on the CD when it's playing (stabilizer, maybe?), the door opens. I then found that by keeping a CD in the tray, I can get the door to open. So, something's - I guess the stabilizer - isgetting stuck and keeping the tray from moving. Getting at it and somehow adjusting it are daunting ideas. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!

Often the tray is powered by a rubber belt. If the latter breaks or slips the try will not open/close. The motor will work and tell the electronics that all is well because it has done its job but it really hasn't since the tray is inert!
You have to check two things.
1. You have to check the tray loading belt in the mechanism. To see the same you should remove the mechanism.because the loading belt is beneath the cd tray. As it is cyberhome it will be very difficult to remove the mechanism for an user. if your capable for doing the same then make try. Because you have to remove the top cover then the back panel, then the mechanism. Take care the mother board is attached to the mechanism.
2. You have to check the cyberhome dvd player will show this type of complaint if the Spindle motor is faulty (oppen or short ). Spindle motor is one on which the cd rotates. It will not cost a lot.
This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...
Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again
On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it
You have to open the unit up by taking off the screws take the cover off....then you will see 2 arms that the tray slides on , they probably need to be manipulated / moved by hand to free it up and some LIGHT grease run along the track - it's probably just stuck or dirty...try it by pushing down the appropriate part while pressing eject, you will see what i mean, but you need the cover off, be careful with open electronics, maybe ground yourself and ont ever use a piece of metal in there, insulated proper tools only, and BE CAREFUL....if you dont feel comfortable have someone repair it. good luck
looks like the rotor is jam or broken,try to unscrew it and open the top cover so you can see the rotor and then plug it in to the power source ,then always press the open/close button and check the rotor if its jam or broken and see what happen.
this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.
What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.
After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.
Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.
you may need to replace the whole mechanism as i've had quite a few philips and marantz cd recorders with the same mechanism with exactly the same problem. when you press open/close it will display open or close with no sign of life from the player. this turned out to be a faulty laser unit and the PCB which is underneath the mechanism seems to go the same way which i found out later when i replaced the laser unit. the recorder worked for around 5 minutes then the laser started moving erratically but then would work again for 5 minutes after switching it off & on again. i cured the fault by replacing the PCB aswell. hope this helps?
Not familiar with this model but all cd tray's have a manual release mechanism, its usually a small hole on the front of the tray. I've found a paper clip unwound usually works fine. Push it in the small hole, you will feel it stop against something, push a little harder and the tray should open enough for you to manually pull it open.
