When mine has frozen up i push and hold the power/standby button for ten seconds then release then push it again and it comes on and opens as usual.  or do you mean the disc is stuck in the machine after the door opens?  maybe open the machine it could be inside.

Why did my Denon Carousel CD player stop working and can it be fixed?

I'm not sure if this will help, but when that happened to my CD player the solution was very simple. I removed the outter cover and took a Q-tip dampened with some alcohol and cleaned the little lens that reads the cd. It's a very common problem, and the fact that yours is 15 years old guarentees the lens is dirty. Some people trash their stero when It could've been good as new with just a Q-tip & little alcohol.

I hope it works!

I have a paper jam under the toner. Paper is stuck in the roller behind the toner. How do I get it out?

Yikes....Been there done that. If all fails, you will have to remove the entire front tray 1 assembly to get to the small pieces of paper. It is not real difficult but requires some time and attention to detail.

Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A
Unable to detect discs
The laser head was the culprit. Replacing it fixed the problem. (Laser head code GRP6278A)
Difficulty reading cd, if it does read the sound is strange and sticks
Replace C101 (1000uF/16v)
