Re: can't get the cd door to open

Mine did the same...with mine it was because one of the cd's came out of the carriage inside the unit... i popped of the see-through top on the unit, put the cd's properly in the carriage and it opened right away... it may say "error" on the front screen

Chances are the loading mechanism is out of alignment. Very hard to realign this mech. even the manufacturer just replaces the entire mechanism when repairing.

My system has swallowed a cassette, the tape is stuck & I can't get the drawer to open. It tries a few times (going 'click/clunk') & then gives up.Any thoughts please?

Hi. Firts of all.. chances are that your unit needs to be cleaned or you used low quality cassettes in thr player. a tape has would itself around the capstan and pinch roller causing everything to jam up. you may need to open up the unit..seperate the cassette mechanism from the main chasis and take it apart delicately in order to get the tape out without breaking the door catch .. Use tweezers but do not mark or scratch the azimuth head...OR.. try it from the front and try to open the door with a fingernail in there..while pressing the eject...good luk.

Cd door wont shut

this is possible but can lead to more frustration. The cd door usually has a plastic tab that depresses on a button or blocks the opto sensor to indicate it is closed. I presume that your cd door is missing this tab or the circuit that activates when the door is closed is faulty. Block the opto sensor manually using paper or keep the button depressed that the door tabe closes on. You will not need anything to keep door closed unless it is reqiured to play the cd then just use a brick

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.

Cd player keeps opening with cd in it

Some small item would appear to be obstructing complete closure
With the drawer open take a good look in side.
Also near the  open button you  should see a small pin hole[sometime on the back of the unit]
 This is the emergency eject device in case you get a jam and is operated with the end of a paper clip.
give it a poke with the drawer open  then again closed
See what happens

CD Player Tray Spins Continuously With or Without Disk

Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck
