Re: locked/unlocked cd

Locks can sometimes be removed by pressing & holding a particular button (or sometimes 2 or 3 buttons).

But you have not told us which CD player you are trying to use. Come back with some more information & I'll try to help!

Tray not ejecting when unloaded

Yeah it sounds like time to let that bad boy go - they are pretty cheap now and you can get one for about $30.00 and they are easy to install.

Door will not open

this product seems to be an audio CD player in use with a stereo system.
Have you tried inserting a paperclip (that has been straightened out) through the tiny hole available to manually coax the tray to come out. It will pop out just a little, but it will then be unlocked and be easy to bring out, displaying the entire CD.
If you have tried that, then.....
Take the cover off (the entire case) and inspect the area where the CD is. Many of these players have no metal encasement around the CD mechanism and one can see the inner workings. The CD may have gotten askew, or the mechanism jammed. Gently try to free things up.You should at least retrieve your CD.

Put the thing back together. Use a junk cd (keep the stereo amp off) and try to load and unload it. If that fails.... Time to get a new one.

Here's a suggestion for that. Most all DVD players handle cd's. Purchasing an inexpensive DVD player might be cheaper than finding a stereo component CD player. Just use the audio out.

Good luck

The disktray automaticly opens and closed several times. When I put a cd in de tray the tray closed and opend without playing

Hi, when a disk tray automatically opens and closed several time, might be from the disk tray itself is jambed that's why it opening and closes by itself. You can open up the player and check if any thing in hooking it.

Also it might need to be replaced, the wheels inside the DVD player might be too weak to move in and out without moving automatically.

The way i see it, you might end up replacing the disk tray with a new one..

Have a nice day.

Disk Recover message and trays are locked

I have had the same problem. To reset the machine when this happens: 1.Switch off with front panel switch (display dims, but still shows same message). 2. Switch off at mains socket, leave off for about 15 seconds. 3. Switch on at mains socket then front panel - machine should then start up as normal.

I have experienced the "disc recover" condition several times now, when a radio recording has run to the end of a disc, and for some reason the recording process has not terminated properly, resulting in the loss of the recording. I found by trial and error that if you switch the mains off at the socket without first switching off at the front panel, then the disc can become corrupted and useless.

I suspect it is partly dependent on the make of disc as my current batch of TDK RWs do it almost every time, whereas with my last batch (can't remember if they were Maxell or Memorex) seemed much better.

I think the only way to prevent the problem is to manually stop the recording before the end of the disc is reached, I suspect possibly before the 74 minute 'red-book' CD limit is reached, even on an 80 min. disc, though I haven't yet tested that theory properly.

Hope this helps,

You power off then power back on while holding down the fast forward and rewind buttons on the recording side simultaneously. The display moves through a sequence of numbers and the trays will then open.
