Question about RCA RP8070 5-Disc CD Changer
Just lately I've had two problems. I don't know if they are related, but they started occuring at the same time. When I push the "open/close" button, the tray emerges about half way, then stops and makes a funny sound. I found that if I give it a gentle tug, it then opens the rest of the way. The carousel still functions normally. The other problem is that it no longer recognizes all the discs. For example, I may put in five discs, but the player only recognizes three of them and so will not play the other two, even if I use the "disc skip" button to put one of the unrecognized discs over the laser eye. Is there anything I can do to remedy these problems short of replacing the player? I've had it for a year and a half. Thanks in advance for your help!

possible tray stuck, will cause this problem, if you can get the case off, 2 screws on the bottom and 4 or 5 on the back case , if it is jammed the unit will not initialize..I am talking from experience with model and simular models ..I have repaired alot

There is a problem with the laser pic-up assembly(eye) 1st,2nd, 3rd,4rth music/track are recorded on disc from the center to edge.As the laser moves toward the edge the laser can't read perfectly the stored data on the disc. possible cause:the disc is in figure of 8, the lens needs cleaning, the suspension of the laser assembly,poor recording speed,spindle motor and voltage fluctuation of VCC

It very well could be a lightning related issue. From previous experience servicing equipment, I have found that electronic equipment that is hit by lightning acts strangely very comparable to what you are describing. Function switches are performing different functions usually due to shorts from the hit. It tends to act normally for bit, and then sporadically do something completely different from what it is supposed to.
As far as service, depending on the age and original cost, you probably are better off getting a new unit. It has also been my experience even if something electronic is repaired, it still may act strangely doing something else later if it was indeed hit. Unfortunately most electronic repair charges can be rather high, maybe 50.00 hr or so, plus parts and a bench fee just to look at it. I have replaced many items for customers after they had them repaired because of this. Check into your insurance. It you have a higher deductable, it may not be worth it. Insurance companies also tend to charge higher premiums as well. Never hurts to ask, but in the long run a drive to the store might be worth it.
