    Our rs2041 CD door will not open, either. I took it apart and there is a belt under a large gear that is loose and appears to be the problem. I am going to look for a generic belt to solve this. This may sound crazy but I may try a rubber band such as for hair. I will keep you posted.

This is normally a problem with the belts or gears that are part of the loading mechanism. sometimes the gears get out of timing.
Whatever is causing the problem, there is no easy fix that is designed for the end user to perform besides unplugging the unit for about half an hour, this resets the micro and it may or may not help.

I work at an authorized RCA repair center and I am sorry to inform you that RCA does not supply parts for any of their audio equipment any longer.

If it is under warranty you can get an exchange from the retailer you purchased it from or send it directly to RCA. You can contact them and/or download user manuals at this website:

If it is not under the warranty it is very unlikely that it can be fixed.

RCA does not seem to care about the customers of theirs unless it is within warranty coverage.

If this information is of any help for you, please leave me a good rating or reply back if you need any more help. I am always willing to offer assistance.

Indeed, it is almost certainly a problem with a tired belt, and indeed, repairing the problem is suitable only for a qualified professional (and therefore not cost-effective). However, if you have a lot of patience, and you're inclined to remove a bunch of electrical connectors and screws (and keep track of where they belong), I'm hoping to find a source for generic replacement belt(s) for this unit, and will keep you posted...

There is a cd inside that will not eject. Took off the side panel to access it, but no luck. How do I get it out?

look for a very small hole in the door of the cd section and it it has one open up a paper clip and push the wire into the hole carefully
there will be a click and the door will open
if no hole then you will have to dismantle the unit to get to the door control

I have a LG XD63 mini audioset, but the CD won't eject. The display says 'locked' what do I do?

tap the CD door gently after pressing the eject button. Repeat a few times. The CD should eject. If it still doesn't the consult a expert. After the defect is rectified use the system regularly at least couple of times weekly.

The cd player will not open when you press the open close button

unfortunatly the mechanism is jammed up for one reason or the other reason #1 a cd is stuck inside #2 the gear just wore out and or it was forced closed by hand instead of pushing the eject/load can try to gently pry this door open while pressing open/eject button that works 40% of the time..if it does not work? it can then be deemed broken out of order.

it's worth a shot trying to pry it open but beware this could either work or really destroy the door/mech/player comes down to this "do you feel lucky" sadly? that's where we're at with this one.

Sanyo stereo AWM-2700U, cd player says'' door'' just blinking.

Press Eject button while tapping on the top. It should open

Open/close doesn't work

When you press Eject CD button, do you see CD display blinks as if its preparing to be ejected? If its true then eject switch is working and cd mechanism is stuck, requires service. Also check loading belt in mechanism.
And if unit shows no response on pressing CD Eject button then switch is bad, replace it.

Cd door will not open

same thing happened to me. turn the system off, unplug it. then back on and after you switch to CD mode (for some reason the CD tray will not eject unless in CD mode), once the system tries to lock on to a specific CD tray, hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. that worked for me. may have been dumb luck but can't hurt.

Onkyo c707chx...

This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4

I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.
