Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I own a 20 year old 5-disc Fisher DAC 199 CD player. The drawers for the CDs will not open. Can this until recently reliable antique be prepared. It was manufactured in Korea in 1989. By the way I live in Canada and would need to know if anyone in Ontario still repairs these items. Thank you.

SOURCE: The drawers on the left side that hold 5 cds will

I have the same problem and have just lived with the B deck for over a year. Just now with nothing to lose, I decided to open it up. I don't have a clue about the inner workings, but was on a mission to at least rescue the 3 discs that were held prisoner. I'm happy to say that not only did I rescue my discs, but I'm listening to a disc in tray 2 right now. All the trays now work. I don't know if my disc was jammed in the player or what the problem was, but it seems the act of removing the disc from the deck made all the difference. If you want to try this, take the 6 black screws out (top 2 on rear panel, 2 on left and 2 on right panel) lift the panel straight up to remove it. you'll see the white framework that houses the trays and the play deck near the rear. In retrospect I should have opened up the play deck first since that may have been the source of the problem. I suggest you try that. There are two tiny screws on each side of the framework. Not sure if you need to remove the two screws with the washer heads. I think they just hold the disc clamp head in place. Again, I'm trying to save you unnecessary work, but remove them if it still doesn't come off. Once you get the top of the deck off, you should be able to access your disc. Take it out, then plug in the player to see if the deck starts to operate. I was very surprised. The belts started spinning and I was hearing the startup sounds I hadn't heard in over a year. Hope this helps

Sounds like you've got a problem with either the Drive Motor, Drive Controller or Drive Belt.

It could be an easy fix but it depends on the where the fault is.

Does it make any noise or effort to open the tray?

Hello, my Sharp Cd-sw200 no longer recognizes the cds that are in there and none of the 5 cd drawers will open. Everything else works fine. Unit is approx 3 years old and very gently used until 4 months...

Changers are the worse of the reliable units and Sharp is not among the best brands to get. The unit will need service by a Technician.
If none of the 5 drawers will not open how is it possible that the units works fine?

The CD trays on my Fisher DAC-199 will not come out. The machine just hums. The door will sometimes open or close.

That is most likely a belt that has stretched with time. Some belts are easy to install and other are so that you must remove the transport to get at the belt location. The symptom is very common in belt type drawer systems. I see it all the time.
