Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Does anyone know where I can get the switch that mounts on the upper rear portion of the CD tray mechanism and is actuated by the door closing? This is a Philips CD880 Player with many mods so I'd like to save it if possible.
This can be fixed by making a small tray to hold a new switch like this;
If you remove the old switch and use a custom plastic 'platform' to hold the new switch (where the old switch used to be) you will have a far stronger and better (the arm is metal not plastic) mechanism.
It's pretty simple and the tray can be screwed into the existing holes with the trigger arm hitting the same tray ridge. Some experimentation is needed - but for $4 (for the new switch) and an hour making the mount, it's worth it!
I've done it - it works and saved this player!

Most philips players have this switch fitted. Find a junker and remove the switch from it.
The machine can work without the front switch working though it would no longer have the "push close" function. If that is never used, swap switches between front and rear while you look for a replacement..

Look something that protrudes at its cover that get inside a hole in the cd tray, it is the one that pushes the switch.
