Question about Sharp CD-ES9 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Disc Drawers will not open

Direct play doesn't work either. Something is just stuck and the owners manual that came with the unit does not tell how to open the drawers other than the 'normal' way. This problem just suddenly occurred. The unit has been flawless until now.

Re: Disc Drawers will not open

There maybe a CD stuck in the mechanism or it may need to be mechanically reset. Not much you can do except take for repairs.

How to fix CD player that reads no disc on my shelf unit?

Presuming that other sources work okay and the the cables are connected correctly.....Try a CD Lens cleaner.

If that doesn't work then it's time to open up the unit and manually clean the laser lens. If that still doesn't work then the laser might be dead. Replacement parts may be available. Whether or not you can do this as a DIY repair though is questionable. It depends on your skill..

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.

Displays no disc when Cd is player

Put it an other good known disc, which the set has played without any problem at all. If it also doesn read it, and displays no disc, the Laser Picku unit of your set has damaged. Put in a lens cleaning disc into the player, and play it for at least three times. If the fault is due to accumulation of dust or durt, the cleaning disc will clean it, and your set will be OK. If not repalce the Laser Picku Unit, sith same type and number.
The lens cleanig disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparpart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more. OK.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?

If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

My sony LBT-ZUX10D midi hifi system disc tray doesn't open, and it writes error code C 31 00. i opened the top and brought out the discs that were stuck inside and still it doesn't open.

This can be due to many reasons and for a start you must be able to check the power to the loading motors, the loading drive IC's. If there is no input command to the IC,- check the voltages before eject , play is pressed and on rest.- to compare and confirm a input loss. If so the processor controller section is a suspect. Also if the mode settings are out of sync , the loading will not work.
Cannot rule out a damaged mechancial link, gear or drive. Need to start checking with all these tips after the mechanism is removed.
Take care with connectors and connections, make a note of your working so as not to forget the sections when fitting back.

Hi! My Harman Kardon Go Play is working fine. Except when I want to run it on batteries. Even though I bought new batteries, from the same brand, it is dead. The battery type is of C ALKALINE LR14 1.5V....

First of all, here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:'s%20Manual%20-%20Go%20+%20Play%20(English).pdf

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 4 of the manual for instructions on using batteries with the unit.
It says there that it requires 8 D-cell batteries, not the C-cells that you quoted..
Also try removing the wall adapter power supply plug to the unit when you are using batteries.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

If you choose to rate this solution using the Thumbs Up scale provided, I thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Need help opening my CD changer?

When you turn on the unit, pushing eject or the open/close button should work. If it doesn't work then the unit is not working. See if you can send it back.

Stereo Problem

This unit needs to be dis-assembled and the CD loading mechanism rebuilt. While a relatively straight-forward repair, this is not something to be attempted by an unexperienced individual. There should be no parts required for this repair, just the local labor rate.

CD tray won't open and motor running

I know this is an old post but I saw it through google, because I had the same problem. I ended up tearing the CD door off and was able to look in and see that one of the cds was stuck. The player was trying to play disc 1 but had pulled disc 2 in under neith and it was stuck, causing the issue. As soon as I pulled disc 2 out the system works great.
