    The trays do not open consistently, now not at all on the changer

  • Anonymous Oct 13, 2008

    I bought my MC35T unit two months ago and after loading 3 CD's into it last evening, the same thing happened. A friend of mine with the same unit is having the same problem, however his unit is 3 years old! I will be calling the store in N.Y. where I purchased and ask them to send me a new unit (have all original boxes and paperwork). Love the unit, but since it is only 2 months old, I do not want it "repaired". In the interim, I cannot remove my 3 CD's that are stuck...any suggestions? Thank you!

    I have the same problem. By disconnecting the cd player from the amplifier, i was able to remove the cds. I do not know how to fix it though. I'm working on it. The amplifier only clicks when plugged in now.

    Bought mine 6 weeks ago. Popped in a CD today, and it wouldn't play. It wouldn't open either. Now I have to ship it off to Denver at my expense.

System is 3 or 4 years old. I have had numerous problems with the CD player. Brought it to CircuitCity -- when they were in business -- as my local authorized Onkyo service. Cost a MINT!! (more than half what I paid for the whole system). Why do this? you ask. Because the unit fits perfectly into my refurbished 1960s hifi cabinet. Anyway, it stopped working properly after 6months. Thought I'd look online now to see other repair options. It looks like there have been a lot of very similar problems over the years. Conclusion: ENGINEERING IS FLAWED.

    No doubt the engineering is flawed; I had the same problem early in the life of my machine and sent it twice to be fixed, the second time successfully. Knock on wood, I have had no recurrence, and it may be that this is due to a change of habit on my part. I have become very polite with my machine (which we rarely are with our gadgets, are we?). When you ask it to do something, wait until it has completed the task before pressing any other button on the remote. Don't change your mind until it has come to a full stop. Pretend that it is a single disc player and always change discs in Tray One. Press the Stop button before it automatically goes to the next tray at the end of playing a disc.
    The MC35 TECH, of which this changer is part, is quite a good mid-fi system, including on headphones (from the jack on the receiver). Upgrading the interconnects between the CD player and the receiver/amplifier makes a considerable difference to sound quality, I found.

I have the same problem on a refurbished unit I bought 2 years ago. I read at the time that this is a common problem and you just need to send to an Onkyo service center. There are links on the Onkyo or ShopOnkyo website.

Lousy design I guess.

Onkyo DX-C370 6-CD Changer. When I try to close the door for the cd changer it bounces back open. It will close fully and then open right away.

Disc loading mechanism fault. Either a broken belt or a gear wheel might be the cause. Contact any service technician. The mechanism should be taken out from the set for repair. This is a skilled work.
If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Disassemble and reasamble of many such changer mechanisms are given with illustrations.

What is the most likely cause of a "NO DISK" error with the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disk changer? Would it be the laser pickup assembly?

Could be dirty laser lens, dying laser, faulty component,
Due to the complexity of multi-disk changers, it may be best to have the device looked at.
You can try running a cleaning disk through it first, but from your post, it sounds like this unit may have multiple problems and need tested by a physical person.

C.d.s get stuck and now tray wont close

The problem is in the loading bay, sometimes 2 CD's will get jammed locking up the system, or the timing gear is out of sync, or possible broken gears.

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel

This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!

Onkyo 6 disc cd player onkyo DX-C390

The unit can not read the discs. It will search through all 6 positions then quit. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this with your results.
