Re: flipped over cd player and now cd's are out of holder...

Well firstly i have no idea what our guest has posted as a suggestion, but mine would be somewhat different.

Firstly, CD's have a tendency to scratch badly when being dragged back and forth inside the tray.

  1. Do not try to open the unit with the usual operation, as this may damage both the CD's and possibly the lazer inside.
  2. I would consider the suggestion that it should not take long for a repair center to remove the cover and retrieve the CD's with minimal fuss or damage to either the unit or CD's.
  3. Smaller components may become damaged and or any debris that is allowed to come adrift inside the unit may cling to the lazer, or other components. This is why i suggest having the unit looked at by a professional.

I took out all discs. When I tell it to play a disc the table moves back and forth slowly about an inch. After a couple trys "Table Error" shows up. Both belts are old but on.

Tray will prolly need retimed after the belts slipped off the pulleys.
Procedure is with tray brackets removed lift tray in back then push open button to let the cam gear spin around to open position. Then let tray down and try to close it with button. Reinstall brackets and may take a few attempts to get that gear in the right position!

DVD stuck in my Yamaha DVD-c6761 DVD/CD player. How do I get it out so my player will open and work properly again.

Unbend a paper clip.Look very closely at the area around the CD/DVD drive door until you find a really small hole - it almost looks like an accident (probably just below the door). Insert the paper clip in the hole (don't be afraid). Push the paper clip gently to press the spring-loaded latch.Your CD/DVD tray should open right up. That's it. Deals Prices

Door won't open.

Hi Walter, this is called the Chucking arm and is made to hold the disc in place when the Pickup assembly is lifted into place. Often times an analysis will show you that the arm is not being lifted due to a lack of grease (Lubrication in the door mechanism) or that the drive parts- motor and a belt are not transferring the energy well enough. I would start with a belt of the correct size and then it may be fixed.

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.

Denon CD door jammed

If you are comfortable taking the cover off, you can try removing the cover and then try to help the tray out the same time you are hitting OPEN/Close.
IF you are not comfortable removing the cover then, you can try to take a credit card (Actually, if you have any of those JUNK credit cards that the CC companies send out as trial offers, those work the best, and who cares if you bend those, they get tossed anyway) and bend an edge at a 90 degree.. (about 1/8" of the edge) so it makes like a small ledge. try to fit it inbetween the top of the door, and then see if you can open it up. Some players have a seperate door, and some trays are attached to the door. You might be able to help it out or unjam the tray this way.
And in the Future, with any other CD/DVD Players, use your remote control or the open and close button to open and close the tray, and NEVER Push on the tray itself. If I had a dollar for every dvd player tray that Ive fixed because of this, I would be buying bill gates dinner. (not really, but you get my point)
Good luck.
