Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders
Fix for RTD206/RTD207 which won't play and displays ''Open'' when disk inserted.
Mine did the same thing. When I put the disk in it said loading for a few seconds then said ''open''. I fixed mine and its playing great now. I went through the trouble of taking the whole drive out (something I don't suggest anyone else do because it turned out to be totally unnecessary) to test the two motors and clean the lens. As it turned out, both motors spun when put under the appropriate current and the lens wasn't the problem. Hmmm...I thought to myself. Here's when I accidentally figured out what was wrong. I PUSHED THE LASER ALL THE WAY UP THE TRACK UNTIL IT WAS AS CLOSE TO THE MOTOR WHICH SPINS THE DISK. I didn't do this on purpose, I was just in there messing with stuff one last time before giving up, but this time when I put a disk in it worked. Just to make certain this was really the problem I tried moving the laser back and it quit working again. Apparently, unlike a lot of other drives the laser doesn't return automatically to the starting position when the system starts. Bad programming on the drive's board in my opinion.
1. Unplug the system (seriously) if anything metal (like a screwdriver) falls and touches junk on the main-board it could toast the whole system.
2. Open the top of the case up. There are six small screws on the back and 2 big ones on the sides which need to be removed.
3. Locate the drive and remove the 3 screws on the metal plate over the drive. Let this dangle over the back (don't set it on the main-board). It's connected with a cord to power the little LCDbut you don't have to unplug this.
4. Push the laser all the way to the center of the drive near the spindle motor (the one that spins the disk).
5. Put the plate back in place. Its got the top spindle which holds the disk in place. You can't test it without this.
6. Plug in the drive being careful not to let anything touch the main-board and test that ******.
7. Assuming everything's good re-assemble using steps above.
Good Luck! I hope this helps. I guess next time we should all be a bit more discerning when buying a home theatre for $89 bucks at target.

You could have a bad lid switch or the hinge may need to be bent to make better contact with the switch. If your washer has a oval cut out on the right side and an actuator on the rt side of the lid... the next time it acts up don't open the lid and turn the tub, simply push down on the rt side of the lid, if it starts to work replace the lid switch. If there is no hole or actuator on the rt side, then the lid switch is on the back left corner, when you open and close the lid you should hear a click. If you don't hear a click or if you hear it when the lid is almost closed you need to adjust the hinge. There are 2 screws on the back of the endcaps on the control panel remove them and flip up the control panel, use a screwdirver to pop out the spring clamps on the rt and lt sides of the top panel. approx 3-4 inches from the sides. just insert the tip into the front most part of the clamp and pry back. unclip the lid switch, and pull the cabinet forward. You should be able to bend the hinge a little so it makes better contact with the lid switch. hope this helps.

SOURCE: cd's skip
all the rca's have been released without quality control... you will have to open and adjust the potentiometers (the adjustible resistors on the main board) to re-calibrate the laser timings. However the way that the boards are mounted inside the boombox's chassis you will need to take apart everything to be able to reach the main board (inside vertical right side board with large heatsink and fan) without causing a short (as to be able to properly adjust these you need to have a cd playing and the whole thing needs to be upright.
I would recommend throwing it all way, not worth the time if you don't have the patience.

If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.
