You have to open the cabinet ..with the power off!! with tray open look at the laser it should be in the cd home position..move the laser toward away from the spindle motor or turntable.you should see a switch with a cover over it,it may be black or white or clear..the is your laser home switch..with your finger or small screw driver gentely push the switch towards you or bend it towards you.with the cover off.plug the unit up.Watch the laser as it moves away from you towards the cd spindle, it it stops and the tray moves in, and the cd mech chucks .you should see the laser turn on and see the objective lens move up and down..if it does not..and it continues with your original problem the you have to retime the tray and loading gear..try this first..

SOURCE: cd tray stays open
There could be damage to the tray contact switches
(these tell to the control unit the position of the tray - open/closed), so that the control unit can start/stop and reverse the direction of the tray ejector motor.
These contacts are located somewhere underneath the tray (usually near the front unit cover), and since you mentioned that the tray was bumped while it was open, it is possible they were damaged. Also, the behaviour of the tray suggests that the control unit can no longer tell whether the tray is open or closed so it operates the tray motor in a wrong manner, which, again, points to these same contacts as the possible cause.
Repairing the contacts may be a somewhat delicate procedure, first you need to locate them (it may require partial disassemby of the tray mechanism), if they are bent a pair of tweezers might do the job, if there's hard damage, it's probably better to replace them (scrapped CD ROM units or a dead CD unit might be a good source, they just need to be of the same dimensions).
There may also be other causes for this malfunction, i just mentioned the first thing that i would check.
Hope this helps somehow.

This is a fairly common problem with discs changers. The laser has failed or is too dirty to read the discs. You can try a laser cleaner such as:
But otherwise you will just need to replace the unit.
On rare occasions blowing canned air inside the unit towards where the discs are when they spin could free it up, but it is far better to use an actual laser cleaner. They almost always take care of the issue.

laser failure on the recording side is very common on marantz and philips cd recorders.
they're well known for it.
so it's most definately the laser in your case.
hope this helps.
