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.

HARMAN FL8385 CD CHANGER TRAY ALIGNMENT


We've all done it, or one of our youngsters do it for us... knock the multi disc tray out of sync with the drive gears.

With multi disc trays, the CD drive has to move out of the way during disc change and tray loading. Occasionally a disc jams, someone forces the tray movement, and you hear the GRIND, GRIND, GRIND of slipping gears.

Most designs have a switch-hit gear setup that's self correcting for small adjustments but occasionally the mechanism slips beyond self correcting.

Here's the process to open up and fix the tray alignment for Harman's FL8385 CD Changer.

Cd tray closes quickly without pressing switch on Technics SL-pd688


There is a small switch under the tray that stops the motor at the end of it's travel, also one when the tray goes back in.
These can have wires broke off or can be stuck or open circuit

Keeps ejecting cd


This would be because the tray mechanism is not being able to reach the end of the load position in pushing a switch or that that switch is bad. It might be corrected by either a new belt if one is used or lubrication of the mechanism and maybe some Deoxit spray into the switch if that measures open all the time even when pressed in. Deoxit is a contact restoration spray used by technicians that is available at MCM Electronics.

When i switch my teacpdh300 cd player on the drawer open and when i close it, it reopens


hi,
Check the tray loading belt of your cd player. If the loading belt is over sized then this problem can occur. Normally the loading belt will become over sized after a few years of use according to the weather condition. . If so the loading tray will not go inside fully and will not engage with close sensing switch. if so the it will open automatically without any external command .Normally in all players the loading belt will be under the loading tray near the frond side of the mechanism. check the same. keep the player in eject position remove power and then try to replace the belt.
ok

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

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.
