Re: Motorized door doesn't open/close

Honestly you would have to dis assemble the unit and go to the black box called the mechanism. Then open thy ad try to reset the trays and the black pole to its proper position. I wish teac would sell the black box as a unit but when i needed one they did not have it. I was able to unbind my box by dis assembling it. If you have one of these units never turn it on its side with cd in it this will lead to binding of the mechanism that controls the draws.

Re: Motorized door doesn't open/close

Mine works, I was looking for an eject probably already know that to load and unload you just hit that disc #. I'm looking for a manual if anyone can help.

I have a panasonic sa ak15 stereo system, the five cd trays have cds in them, i pressed the cd open button but cds don`t come out, the system screen says change, what could be the problem?

The door loader motor isn't working. Sometimes the plastic tray warps and hangs a bit. Mine still hangs, but I can give it a push to close. If you can see the door trying to open you can help it open but you have to be quick or you have to press the open button more that once.

I have a rca rs 2663 stereo, The cd tray will not open or play cd's anymore. Could you please help

It two things can cause this:-
The motor is damaged ( you can listed closely to hear if the door motor runs when you try to open the tray.
Or The belt that takes power from motor to open mechanism is damaged.

The CD tray on my Sony MHC-RX100AV system won't stay closed. after i power up the unit the door opens a few moments later. i'll try to close it, but it opens again. what's worse is after i turn the power...

hey dude, i have the exact problem. I took the black wraparound cover off and looked inside and turns out the problem is the belt used to open and close the door. if it is old and worn, chances are it doesn't have enough elasticity to help the rotating parts rotate to open and close the door the whole way.
If your door is open when you remove the cover, you'll see the belt and door-opening mechanism right in the middle of the unit when you look down into it.

the belt looks to be about 8" in circumference, and i have a rubber band holding things in place until i can get to the store and get a new one.
hopefully you figured this out without buying a new stereo

My rca rs 1289 5- cd changer mini system will not play, open, close, or change cds. how can i fix this problem at home?

Remove the case screws on the left and right side panels. Pay attention to the long screws that come out of the middle of the panels to make sure they get back in the right spot. Remove one screw from the top rear back panel. Lift side panels of in a hinged motion from the bottom. Remove the top panel in a hinged motion from the rear. In the center of the disc tray remove 1 screw from center. Note the orientation of the tray for re-insertion. Lift the tray up and out. look for small dc motor and spindle. this motor is used to spin the tray. You should find a black belt2_bing.gif between motor and spindle. Make sure it is in good condition. Look to the right rear of the unit. there is a second motor and belt which drives the tray. This belt may be broken or off its spindle. repair or replace the belt as necessary. Plug the unit in and test the open/close function and ensure the gear train, belts2_bing.gif and carriage move smoothly. reassemble.

Cd tray wont close, cds wont play

Sounds like you probably have a stretched belt on the load motor. Unplug the unit and remove the case which will expose the load motor. Plug in and turn on and press tray in button. You should hear the motor run and if you can see the belt you should see it slipping. Some belts are easy to change, and some are next to impossible. If you have to disassemble anything be sure that you note the position of everything as the timing of the tray, door, laser and most items in the unit is very critical. Let me know if you need more help.

This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.

Does not play CDs. After closing, tray immediately opens again and displays "Take CD out". Cycles through trays and gets stuck.

If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. If it wont help and you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the system and look for Problems with the door opening/closing: Steps: 1. Make sure the drawer-loading belt is still tight and elastic. If not, it can be replaced with a belt obtained from an electronic-parts supplier. The replacement should be of equal or slightly greater thickness and should fit snugly but not so tightly that it strains the motor. 2. Check for broken or loose gears and have them replaced. 3. Check for obvious sources of contamination such as pet hair or foreign objects that are preventing smooth operation of moving parts. Small children have a habit of inserting items into CD players. 4. Use electronics-grade contact cleaner to clean the door-position contacts.
