The cover on the my curtis rcd333 will not stay closed. Appears that there is something wrong with the mechanical "lock" that keeps the cover closed when you want to play a cd. Is there anything that can be done to repair this unit?

if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.
the cd drawer will probably use infra-red to sense when the drawer is open or closed or maybe just a gear mechanism, either way these must be clean, I'd take it apart and lean it all with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol
one reason the door cant close is precisely because there is a pastic piece on the door itself that prevents it from doing so, the reason is because the belt is most likely in the wrong position... it may need to have a lever moved to have it stay up and then closed. check the green handles and try turning them to different positions
I have done this job. taking that think apart can be a pain.
There is probably a switch, that is pressed, and senses the closing or status of the tray, and it keeps resetting. It could be a leaf switch, that would be lucky. It could be an encased switch. You would need an exact replacement in that case.
The leaf switch could just need to be cleaned with a folded dollar bill. Its perfect for cleaning a couple of contacts, and its not destructive.
Its a shame to throw something like that away, for such a small problem.
Maybe you could sell it at a garage sale to some kid after you tell 'em what the problem is.
Point being, taking that kind of thing apart, and putting it back together again, might not be worth the stress that goes with it. I've done it because I am POOR, and if I had money, I wouldn't go through that aggravation.
gently push the cd door back in while pushing the door closed button , untill it closes if it still comes out then the cd laser mechanism is not lifting or something else has happened , then it will need to be tested to determine the exact cause
BeoSound 2000 - The CD won't even spin now. The cover closes, the Number 1 for the track appears in the display, then the cover immediately reopens showing what looks to be something like this [ ] in the display.
