Broken carouself? Can't properly open, close, rotate, etc.
This problem may be irreparable. The problem I had been having was that the carousel would occasionally get stuck halfway to closing. If I fiddled (turned it off and on, manually pushed on the changer, pulled open, etc), I could get it to work. This last time, I must have pushed on the rotating part of the carousel too hard, and it wouldn't push smoothly anymore (instead of the smooth noise, it just clicks, and pushes loosely). Now it perpetually tries to open and close, struggles to rotate, struggles to open and close (can't without assistance). It doesn't ever seem to actually lock into a position, lock into open or closed, etc. I took it apart (not extensively), couldn't solve the problem, put it back together, and didn't accomplish anything. One small piece (a white plastic bit, not sure from where in the machine) broke off.
Broken gears. The current replacement 5 disc is a CD/DVD player and sells for $129.00 at Sony or any other Sony retailer. The cost to have a service center even estimate the repair would be more than 50% of the replacement cost. Hope this helps
I had the same problem with our 5-CD Sony carousel player CDP-C535 (manufactured Nov 1993). I removed the top metal cover, and loaded five audio CDs into the carousel. After I closed the table, I pressed the carousel tight so that it stayed close, and hit the play button. The CD player tried to push the carousel out with quite a force. I needed to warp me fingers around the front panel to keep the carousel closed. After a few cycles of forcing the carousel to remain close, and caused two separate strong "clucks" from the gear area, the CD carousel became operational again. The diagnosis of gear problem seems right.

All microwaves have a safety lever or switch that prevents the unit from working if door is not closed all the way. Most of them you have to take the unit apart as access to it is from inside--what happens is when door is closed the latch or door moves the lever--seen a number where lever is loose or even the holder for it cracked.
Most shops are familiar with this and it should if the problem not be a real expensive repair.
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

To fix the E527 error, close the front panel (cover A) and open the top cover (cover B). With the photoconductor unit removed, the toner carousel will rotate. It only rotates if cover A is closed all the way. You can easily rotate the carousel to a position where you can remove/reinstall the stuck toner cartrdige.

This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!
This happens occasionally with after-market (refurbished) cartridges. Sometimes the people rebuilding the cartridges forget to replace the microchip on the cartridge that resets the copy counter. Most reputable re-manufacturers will send you a replacement cartridge if this happens.
It could also be a carousel alignment or sensor issue inside the printer - if this is the case you will have to call HP for service.
Whatever you do, make sure you do not try to manually rotate the carousel to change out the different cartridges - each time you want to change a specific color, close up the printer first and then press the carousel rotate button that's directly under the ready light, keep pressing until the display says that it's rotating to the color you want, then open and change that color, repeat for each additional color.
