Question about Sharp XL-MP130 CD Shelf System

CD trays won't open

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.

    Yes, it happens to each of them. I got the cover off of the changer section and the player tray that travels up and down appears to be hanging up. Also, can't find any emergency eject hole or mechanism.

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...

    If you say it is hanging up then your going to have real carefully.

    Make sure the trays are going back into the fully seated position. Try to get it in the psoition that give you the best possible view and look for a cracked part. Look for uneven surfaces. If neccessary, unplug the entire unit and turn it upside down and tap gently. Even use a spray duster to help. But do not use the duster too close as it is powerful enough to dislodge parts.

    Sorry I can't help you more. As always remeber to unplug the unit when working on it...

CD-RW drive won't open, only beeps when trying to open.


Look for a hole on the front tray a little bigger then a pinhole. Straighten out a paper clip and insert it into the hole to eject the CD.

Hi - the CD tray cannot open. It is empty - no CDs in there. I hear a buzz, but an "error" message comes on. I tried pushing on the tray while turning on; I unplgged the CD player, I put it on...


The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped.
The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely.
The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening
and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch
is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.

I bought the cd changer with my unit & two cds are stuck in it. This happened the third time I used the unit.


Hello,

this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.

What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.

After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.

Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.

I wish you good luck.

Disk (CD) will not eject automatically nor play a CD. It make noise, (a clicking),trying to eject. In my computer, it will not show that the CD is in the drive.


Turn the power off before you try this. There's a small hole in front of most CD drives. You can straighten out a paper clip and try pushing it into the hole. It should go in about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and then stop. Press just a little harder and it may push open the tray and eject the CD. If there's not a CD in it, it may move it enough that it will reset itself. Once the tray is open, and the CD removed, you can power on your system. It should pull the CD tray back in. Once your system boots, try the eject button to see if it works.

CD player damage


This can be a messy and frustrating problem to fix. You have to insure that the gears which control the opening and closing of the disc tray are correctly aligned with the apparatus inside. I have fixed this successfully on my own, but I must say it wasn't easy and involves removing the cover to give you better access, taking the tray out again and fiddling with it until everything is lined up properly. Might be worth sending for repairs.
