Re: RCA 2656 bookshelf music system cd door

I have a similar stereo system and accidentally put two CD's in one tray and it got stuck and could not open. What I did was unplug everything from the unit and took off the side panel. After some careful fiddling I got it to open. You could try something like that.

My rca 5 disk vertically stacked cd changer is stuck. Won't open. How to fix it?

Try this... unplug the unit and turn it upside down.  Have a small screwdriver ready.  No plug the unit in and try to turn the wheel in the large slot clockwize.  When you see the spring clip try to grab the white plastic stop and move it clockwize.  This should eventually open the door.  It did for me.

I tilted the player to the right side (viewed from the front) to better see the speaker terminals and heard a clunk. When I sat the player back up I was able to open the drawer. I found two of the CD’s had fallen out of the proper holder on top of another CD (three CD’s in one space. After I put the CD’s back where they belonged the unit worked fine.

I assume one of the CD’s didn’t seat properly after playing and caused the mechanism to jam.

Hope this helps your problem.

If it is only two months old, DO NOT take the unit apart! there should be at least a three month warranty on it, and if you mess with it, they(the repairer) will blame you. Call for an authorized dealer in the owners manual. Good Luck
