My RCA Stereo system 5 disc cd drawer keeps opening. When I put a cd in it, the unit opens and keeps opening. It only stays closed when I turn off the unit and manually push it closed. What could be causing this problem?

These units are actually nice units. There is a "loading belt" inside that controls the tray movement as well as the final "load" of the mechism into the play position. If the load does not complete, the unit will "eject" or open up. This is most often cured by replacing the loading belt. This is a common problem with any rubber component. As it ages, it gets a little slippery and thus will not have the grip to complete the loading sequence. The belt for this will run about $5.

Since it is 5 disc unit so I do not agree that it has little mechanism, in fact 5 disc mechanism is more complicated then single disc mechanism.
It sounds disc mechanism gears timing went out and possible cause could be loading belts (previously you read it as band), if you are handy person and know about disc mechanism then unplug unit from wall socket, take off covers and take out loading belts, buy new of same size and clean dust from gears, pulleys etc and put new belts, hopefully this will fix cd tray popping out problem.

There is a little mechanism in there the detects the tray closed witch give the command to spin the disk, Aso the hat that holds the disk might not be picking up the disk fully, this mechanism is showing sings of wear. You might be better off because repair can be expensive to find better alternitives.

Also in the mechanis are little bands or at least one, this could be worn out, replacing that band might help allot. should be located under the tray. Now to find a replacment band might be a small issue.

Let me know and update me with what you find.

please do leave a rating and feedback before you go thanks

When I turn on the system one of the cd slots keeping opening and will not stay closed.


take the top cover off and make sure there is not a loose cd in there. This is very common on these units. If not, then you will most likely have to get the mechanism replaced.

Problem with the cd changer on my RCA Total Power 5 disc changer system


Unfortunately, it sounds like the relay or motor to open the drawer is either stuck or dead, which can cause the entire system not to play the discs even if the drawer is closed. First, try calling RCA Customer Support to see if warranty service/exchange can be made for the unit. Second, try taking it back to where it was purchased. IF all else fails, You can disassemble the unit (this voids the warranty - do at your own risk) and try to identify the motor and drawer mechanism- try removing the main casing to your stereo (unplugged of course) and ensure that the small belts & gears that operate the drawer mechanism are all in good working order by gently operating them by hand. If not, you can replace or try a repair, but it honestly may be cheaper (and better for your sanilty) to buy a new system.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"


Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

CANNOT OPEN PLAYER


To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
