Question about Sharp XL-MP130 CD Shelf System
When I try to access a tray it makes a little noise and tries to open about 1/16 inch, then stops. Tried to access changer guts, but could not figure out how to get into the actual black housing around it.
If it trying to open and moves part of the way I don't think it is a mechanical failure such as broken cogs in the gears or a belt if belt driven. Sounds more like there is something blocking it.
WITH THE UNIT UNPLUGGED!!!!
Without hitting the open button. use the "emergeny" open hole in the front. Use a paperclip or something to poke in the hole. Hopefully you feel a little resistance and it will pop open. If not...
Using a flashlight (I suggest a LED flashlight), using the above method, grab the tray when it opens slightly. Extremely gently pull the tray out at the same time looking for an obstruction around the tray. If you hit any resistance at all stop pulling, we don't want to further damage the unit.
To get a case off: MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED AND WAIT A FEW MINUTES SO THE POWER SUPPLY IS FULLY IS DSCHARGED. Follow the outline of the case removing any screws that hold the case to the chassis. Some have the full case come off, some just a panel. Remove the neccessary screws and poke around being careful not to touch any springs or such. Look for debris that doesn't belong..
Hold on, I just looked at the maual and there are 5 trays. Does this happen to all of them? If all, it is a different story. If each one is driven independently the power supply might be "weak" and not sending sufficient voltage/current to the motors. This requires a meter to check...
