The problem is the eject motor isn't strong enough to
break the magnetic seal holding the CD in place .
If you just want to get it open ,then press the eject
button wait 1 second then slap the top of your console
right over the cd rom drive HARD , this will break the seal and
relase the tray,you may have to doit a few times to get the
timing right.

The fix for this is to disassemble the console ,remove and
disassemble the drive clean all 3 gears and re-lube the slides
and some time I'll have to gap the hold down magnet in
the upper hub so the motor can break the seal with less torque.

Try wiping the disc with a damp tissue or something that's not bumpy or rough, not a paper towel. It happens alot on my movies and games so I know what to do. If it doesn't work then do it again. Wipe the cloth on the disc in slow circle motions on the silver part

Onkyo C-707chx cd tray jammed won't open won't play


I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.

My son's did the same thing but not because he opened it. I opened it myself and the tray was off track.. it's kinda easy to fix. I haven't had a problem since and this was maybe a year ago.
