Phillips CD Tray Switch

Does anyone know where I can buy the switch that mounts on the upper rear portion of the CD tray mechanism and is actuated by the door closing? The current switch is broken. This is a Philips CD880 Player with many mods so I'd like to save it if possible.
Thanks,
Dan

Dan, I know its been a couple of years since you posted this question, but i just stumbled upon this. Did you ever find the parts you needed? I have a CD880 that shows disc error all the time. This unit has been boxed up for the last 4 years and has hardly ever been used. I have no idea why the error message issue is happening. However, I have not been able to find an answer to my problem in my area. If you are still looking for a spare CD880 for parts I know that mine would be a good choice. Let me know if you may want to check it out.

How do I remove the harddrive from the HP Slimline S3100n?


Shut down the power to your HP Slimline computer.

Remove any memory cards or other devices from the desktop.

Disconnect the power cord and peripheral devices from the computer.


Lay the computer flat on your work surface.

Remove the three screws on the rear of the computer cover with a Phillips screwdriver.


Slide the cover toward the back of the computer then lift it off the tower.

Set the cover aside.

Raise the wire latch in front of the hard drive mounting area.


Pull the cables straight out of the connections to disconnect them from the hard drive. Unscrew the retaining screw in the side of the mounting tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


Grab the tab on the hard drive tray and slide it back out of the mounting area. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


There are four screws, one on each corner.

Slide the hard drive out of the tray.

Player will not play a loaded CD and No CD message comes up Also CD drawer opens and shuts on it`s own !!!


the tray opening by itself could be a faulty limit switch on the tray mechanism

the switch tells the system if the tray has reached the open or closed position.

if it closes then opens itself then this is the most likely

check that first

could be closing then opening without actually loading due to the switch

you will need to open it up to find the switches

usually at the bottom front were the tray goes in

Dvd player tray keeps opening and closing.


The tray position switch is disconnected or bent from disassembly. I expect one plug wire is off when you put the unit back. The tray switch is mounted so the tray strikes the switch when fully in and fully out.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 Inkjet Printer When I try to print on a cd/dvd I line up the arrows hit print but it keeps telling me to close the cd/dvd tray, there is no way it will print with this tray.


The cd/dvd tray door has a small opening on right edge. Inside there is a slide switch. Use a toothpick to see if it is stuck. Check where it closes to the main body. A thin strip protrudes out to mate and close the plastic actuator of the switch. The door may not be closing well enough the actuate the switch. Make sure it is fully closed and retry to print. Also, there will be a small click as you raist the door before it snaps into place. If not, check to see if there may be some debris causing it to not actuate properly.
Good luck,

My transfer case is permanently engaged but no 4 wheel drive...


2 common problems that cause this are the vacuum switch on the transfer case and the vacuum actuator mounted under the battery tray. When the switch on the transfer case goes bad it pulls fluid out of the transfer case and pumps it into the actuator and destroys it. The switch only costs about $15 and are usually stocked at major auto parts stores. The actuator ranges from about $50 to $120 and most of the time need to be ordered. If you reach under the battery tray with the 4wd engaged and follow the cable you will feel the end of the actuator, make sure that it is pulling back. If not either the switch or actuator or both are bad. Hope this helps.

DVD player tray will not open


Maybe this will help someone look in the right direction. A friend gave me a KISS DP-1000 with the same problem: The TV showed the 'Eject' graphic, and nothing happened. There is no little hole that you can poke a paperclip in, like on a PC. I opened the player, and still could not find anything. Then I googled the model of the actual tray mechanism (DSL-710A). The datasheet said that it did have an 'emergency eject' machanism, operated by a Philips screw at the bottom of the tray. There are no holes at the bottom of the DP-1000, only a dimple that dead-ends. I broke through the bottom of the dimple with a small, flat, screwdriver, then enlarged the hole. I felt around with a medium Philips and it fitted into something. I twisted gently, and the tray popped out. Why KISS covered the 'emergency eject' screw is anybody's guess, but I am not buying any of their products.

Record won't retract


If it isn't making any move to retract the tray it's probably the trip switch. If you look in the back and follow the mechanics under the tone arm you'll see how it closes a switch as the arm goes to the centre of the record. Clean the switch or adjust it.

If it is half returning the tray it is the tray stack all gummed up. Use Servisol Silicon spray or have it rebuilt by someone who knows how.
