Re: cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4

I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.

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.

Where can I find drive belt for rca rs-9150a (opens the cd door)

I have had this unit for a number of years. Can't find the original drive belt so I've been using rubber bands. They work for a while till they dry rot. If you're doing the job yourself, go to a hardware store and get an assortment of rubber O-rings for plumbing. A little tricky to get one on the gears but I put one in a few months ago and so far it's outlasting a rubber band.

My karaoke machine will not play CDs

the only suggestion I can offer is clean the laser lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol gently and allow several minutes to dry, if that fails! the whole assembly will need to be replaced.

My CD drawer will not open or close

I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Doesn't recornize Cd's and won't play cds

I have a AWM-2700U (3 disc changer) that was doing the same thing. I removed the cover and found that the laser lens for the CD player had come out of it "slot". I cleaned it with alcohol and a cotton swab and replaced it in the slot and it has worked for the past 3 months since. Hope it works for you.

Cd player opens when turned on and will not function

JVC recommends leaving the unit unplugged for 30 minutes to reseet the system - I'm trying that now, and will keep you posted!
