CD player cover/door won't stay closed

Door goes up when press "open", goes down when press "close", but then pops back up again. Or will close but then during playing of the CD it just authomatically opens. Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: CD player cover/door won't stay closed

The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

The cd player will not open when you press the open close button

unfortunatly the mechanism is jammed up for one reason or the other reason #1 a cd is stuck inside #2 the gear just wore out and or it was forced closed by hand instead of pushing the eject/load can try to gently pry this door open while pressing open/eject button that works 40% of the time..if it does not work? it can then be deemed broken out of order.

it's worth a shot trying to pry it open but beware this could either work or really destroy the door/mech/player comes down to this "do you feel lucky" sadly? that's where we're at with this one.

The CD tray on my Sony MHC-RX100AV system won't stay closed. after i power up the unit the door opens a few moments later. i'll try to close it, but it opens again. what's worse is after i turn the power...

hey dude, i have the exact problem. I took the black wraparound cover off and looked inside and turns out the problem is the belt used to open and close the door. if it is old and worn, chances are it doesn't have enough elasticity to help the rotating parts rotate to open and close the door the whole way.
If your door is open when you remove the cover, you'll see the belt and door-opening mechanism right in the middle of the unit when you look down into it.

the belt looks to be about 8" in circumference, and i have a rubber band holding things in place until i can get to the store and get a new one.
hopefully you figured this out without buying a new stereo

My Emerson MS3108 door keeps randomly opening. All CD music stops when it opens and it opens within seconds of the previous openings. Is there something I can do?

It is a leaf switch that senses that the door is closed. A C-clamp in the upper left hand corner clamping the door closed will make it work. If you remove the clamp, it will randomly open again. The correct fix is to open up the unit and bend the leaf switch to make it activate earlier and fully close when the door is closed.

Cd door wont shut

this is possible but can lead to more frustration. The cd door usually has a plastic tab that depresses on a button or blocks the opto sensor to indicate it is closed. I presume that your cd door is missing this tab or the circuit that activates when the door is closed is faulty. Block the opto sensor manually using paper or keep the button depressed that the door tabe closes on. You will not need anything to keep door closed unless it is reqiured to play the cd then just use a brick

Lid Closure

OK - There is nothing that drives the door to close and stay closed. There is a little plastic gismo the locks onto a little protruding tongue in the lid keeping it closed. To release the lid, you must press the lid foreward so that it releases the lock in the little plastic gismo. I found this out only after removing the board above the main deck of the player and which, fumble-fingers me, I managed to damage the board and will have to replace it along with the little plastic gismo that holds the door closed. I am not sure if either of these parts are available as I have had the unit for quite a while. This leaves me in a quandry as I really did like the little player. It was a dandy. So, if you ever get an inquiry on how to keep the lid closed on a JMC_800, tell them to replace the little plastic gismo and that will do it.
