CD stuck in a 5-disc changer

A CD is stuck in the player. The tray is out & won't go back in. When power is on, the tray just spins. With the cover off, I can see the CD is held in place but I can't get it out. Is there a release button or other way to correct?

There is a flat ribbon cable on the inside that is defective. The cable needs to be replaced and the loading mechanism retimed. This is a simple repair for a repair shop. Expect the ribbon cable to run around $10. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost. I've done many of these. This is a common problem with age.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

I HAVE A 5 DISC CHANGER.......I PLUG IT IN, TURN ON POWER AND THEN PUSH OPEN. OPEN COMES UP ON THE SCREEN BUT THE TRAY DOES NOT OPEN. WILL NOT SKIP FROM ONE DISC TO ANOTHER EITHER???????? ANY...


The 5 disc carousel CD player has a belt driven mechanism in it. And after about 3-4 years the belt looses its tension and cannot push the tray in or out. If you keep your ears on the top cover and turn on the system you will hear a whirring sound coming from the inside which will prove my point.
There are two belts in the machine. One for the eject mechanism and the other for disc change mechanism. One has to seek professional help to replace both because there is timing sequence also involved like the cam shaft of an engine.

Cd will not eject. Keeps giving message "Now OPC" but will not do anything and will not eject cd either.


To remove a stuck CD from Tascam CC222 MKII

This solved the "Now OPC" problem



1. Unplug unit

2. Remove the top cover, (3 screws on each side and 3 on the back, lift cover).

3. Plug in unit.

4. Power on the unit to observe the drive spindle spinning clockwise, (1" disc on top of drive).

5. Turn off unit, do not unplug at this time.

6. Use a small screwdriver to prevent the drive spindle from spinning.

7. Power on the unit preventing the spin.

8. In approximately 10 seconds the display will read "Disc Error" and the CD tray will open.

9. Remove the screwdriver and the disc.

10. Turn off the unit and unplug.

11. Replace the cover.

12. Use a better quality disc.

Disc stuck in cd player


Easy, turn off the power, remove the lid by unsrewing all the screws on the side, back and top of the lid. When removed you should see the CD jammed somewhere at the rear of the disk carrier. be very carefull and slowly remove it. The disk may be already scratched but if you're carefull you can stop further damage. Also don't force any part of the tray they are only plastic. If you can't get the disk out things start to get awkward. Write backmor take the unit with the lid off to a repair shop it shouldn't take them long to get it out.

I have a denon 3500 cd player my cd is stuck


Open the top cover of your CD using a screw driver, (usually a star screw driver),. Then, manually turn the driving gear of the CD tray to free the stucked tray and until to the point where you can take the disc from the tray. Be careful so the setting of the tray and the laser eye is not change. Then, close the close the cover and play. You can send your e-mail thru fix ya to let me know.

I had this happen to me as ell. you've probably got a cd stuck under the revolving tray. I took the top cover off and then opened the drawer and removed the offending disk. If you're not technically minded it's probably better to take it in to a repair shop. Mike
