Replace the loading tray belt as this also lifts the laser mechanism up to the level of the disc once loaded.
the humming sound you hear will be the motor trying to lift the mechanism up to read the disc but can't because the belt has lost its tension and is slipping.

Re: TEAC CD P1120 wont play

My P1120, the drawer keeps opening automatically. Put a CD in, then 10 seconds later the drawer opens. I find I have to power up the P1120 15 minutes before I want to use it. Just power up and let it sit. After 15 minutes the drawer behaves as expected. Sometimes its a pain to wait, but the solution has worked for me for years now.

Trying to play a cd on the TEAC GF-680 . Blinking message

  • You may have some dust blocking an optical sensor that detects the door being closed. Try to blow into the door area with the tray open, either with your breath or with compressed air.
  • You can also try unplugging the player for 1 minute and plugging it back in to see if that fixes it.
  • Try a different CD. The DVD player may not like the CD you are trying to play or the CD might be dirty.
  • The DVD player might just be broken.

I have a teac x-9, and during cd play, the cd doors randomly open and close causing me to restart cd play all over again. it does this on its own, and i don't push any buttons for it to occur. is this...

clean your eject button or check it 2 see if it is broke. if u have a remote try 2 play a cd with the cd player with the batterys out of the remote. last 1. the cd door could be off trak witch wood make the cd off balance when the eye goes 2 read the data on the disk it misses its data an will cause your cd player 2 open.

TEAC CD player jammed

I had the same problem in 2007: I removed the cover and manually encouraged the cd drawer to open. It has been working ever since.

TEAC-P1260 - Initially Cd would play then eject randomly. Next would play only a few seconds then eject. Now has eaten a disc and will not eject. Any suggestions?

First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricalshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you; Regards; VOTIT

Onkyo C-707chx cd tray jammed won't open won't play

I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.

This is a faulty loading motor. you will need to replace the entire optical lens assembly in this case. the motor is part of the assembly.

I think that we can get at least one of them going again :)
I suggest
  1. take the lids off both of them.
  2. load up some Cd's and close the drawer and watch what happens.
  3. does the disc begin to spin, is not, do you hear any noise as it tries to read each disc.
  4. can you kick start the CD when it first loads(clockwise direction)
  5. if not of these things happen, can you see if the transport loads the cd up off the tray.
While you are in there, with the front drawer open you should be able to see the laser lens. Use a cotton bud moistened with windex(glass cleaner) gently clean the lens in a circular motion and then also polish it with a dry one to be sure you have left no smears on the lens. Then.... try the unit again and see if the CD reads.
If you don't have any luck this far, please post back to me and we can try some other things. All this and you give me a FixYa... YAY :)
