Question about Audio Players & Recorders
It's either the gear on the tray loading mechanism or it's drive belt. The gear is made of a soft material and the teeth wear down on the hard tray rack. Get hold of Arcam and order TP21H replacement part and belt. The same happened to me and the gear had perished. In the meantime stick something onto the front of the tray that you can use to pull it open after you have pressed the 'load' key. Place your CD in the tray, press the 'load' key and push the tray closed manually. The player will work like this until you can replace the gear/belt.

You have a problem with the try control circuit. It could be the switch is leaking across itself. Could be a problem with the tray motor control IC, or the Microprocessor is not reseting the open tray line correctly, or theres a cam assembly inside the unit that tells the microprocessor where everything is by means of small micro/leaf type switches thats out of alighnment or broken. If its seven years old, you got more then it was designed for and I would'nt invest a dime or the time into the repair of this unit. Time to take a trip to the electronics store. Good luck

SOURCE: cd tray mechanics
It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.
There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....

SOURCE: HHB-830 CD TRAY does NOT open.
It's made for HHB by Pioneer, you could try one of their agents?. Opening up is fairly straightforward if you are methodical and take your time if you need to. There is a test mode sequence you can try - hold down the 'menu/delete' and 'auto/manual' keys together for 5 seconds until the display blinks all the lights then press the stop button. Now ONLY press the open / close button - pressing any other keys will change settings and without the service manual you won't know what you're changing. Press stop then power it off to exit.
I can email you the service manual if you need it. It sounds like a gear has come loose inside to me. I strip these machines for parts quite regularly so may be able to help you out if you're able to work out what if anything is broken but I'm in the UK. It may be as simple as a belt has come loose :-)

I recently bought a second hand C541i as is and I had the same thing; no power up. I took it to a service centre, they re-soldered the connecting pins for the transformer socket. It now works well.
After that I realised that it could have been the problem with the Burson Audio clock that was installed buy the previous owner but had intermittent playback problems. A study of the schematic revealed that the +12v rail for the clock, is from a different secondary coil winding than the +5v for the DAC etc. And the -12v for the analogue output stage could be from a different pin on the connector as well.
I hope this helps.

HI, the gear track is stripped and the load motor is stuck between the good section of the track and the bad section of the track. you will need to replace the loading dock in your unit. this will fix this issue.
