If the latch is still good and the spring is still there than the gears that push and pull the cover must of snapped.

The latch that holds the door has snapped. time to take it apart. The spring may have come off or you could need a new unit.

I own a Philips CD 950 player. I now cannot open or close the CD compartment. How do I remove my disc? I live in Manhattan, New York City and wonder if there is a service center near me.

The small gear that opens or closes the door goes bad after 10 or 15 years. The gear is not available separately. The solution is easy. Take the deck cover off with a torx bit, and remove the broken gear pieces. Push the CD transport door out, and fasten heavy clear mailing tape on both top and bottom of the center of the CD transport door to make a Grab Tab you can use to pull the door open. When you load the CD you are going to hear, push the door open/close switch twice to fool the deck to go into PLAY mode. Mine has worked great like this for 6 years now, and it still sounds beautiful.

Cant get back door to stay closed . The lock is stuck in locked position I think and the door is open. When I go to close it, it is'nt staying closed. Had to duck tape it to stay closed. LOL! I keep...

It sounds to me ( correct me if I'm wrong ) like the door latch on the side vertical edge of the door is in the LOCKED POSITION. In order to unlock it perform the following. First electrically with the LOCK button UNLOCK the locks. Now with one hand hold the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE IN THE OPEN POSITION, while at the same time FLIPPING OPEN THE LATCH. All Done . Now you can close the door. Hope this helps

OPEN error stays on when disc inserted

There is a pressure switch that gets pushed down when the disc door is closed. Ether the arm on the switch is busted, the switch is bad or a busted wire to the switch.

Battery door no longer locks to stay closed. olympus camedia c-720

You either find a replacement door or simply use a small amount of sticky tag to both corners of the door frame where the card door closes on to. Don't put too much, just enough to hold it shut after pressing down slightly. No adhesive tapes, as they give a messy look and need to be replaced quite often.
Hope this experience of mine can help.
