CD player door won't close

Craig model CD4313G with top loading CD player. I can not get the door on the CD player to stay closed. When I push it down I hear a click but the door opens back up as soon as Iet it go. Is there any way to repair this.

    I have a CD-4313G boombox and the cd door on the top will not latch when closed. The little plastic catch assembly does not catch and hold the strike pin. The pin is on the door and the catch assembly is mounted on the player body in the cd compartment. The catch assembly apparently needs to be replaced and is a simple replacement. Pull out the old one with needle nose pliers and pop in a new one. Where can we get a new one????
    Thanks

Door will not stay closed when pushed down


Clearly the catch is jammed or broken. My daughter has the same trouble but the machine doesn't warrant repair costs and it plays well as long as a heavy book is placed on the door to keep it closed.

Hitachi ax-m71 cd door won't stay closed. Unable


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.

I own a Philips CD 950 player. I now cannot open or close the CD compartment. How do I remove my disc? I live in Manhattan, New York City and wonder if there is a service center near me.


The small gear that opens or closes the door goes bad after 10 or 15 years. The gear is not available separately. The solution is easy. Take the deck cover off with a torx bit, and remove the broken gear pieces. Push the CD transport door out, and fasten heavy clear mailing tape on both top and bottom of the center of the CD transport door to make a Grab Tab you can use to pull the door open. When you load the CD you are going to hear, push the door open/close switch twice to fool the deck to go into PLAY mode. Mine has worked great like this for 6 years now, and it still sounds beautiful.

Have Sony cdp-c535 cd player. The door won't stay in. Keeps cycling in and out.


I had the same problem with our 5-CD Sony carousel player CDP-C535 (manufactured Nov 1993). I removed the top metal cover, and loaded five audio CDs into the carousel. After I closed the table, I pressed the carousel tight so that it stayed close, and hit the play button. The CD player tried to push the carousel out with quite a force. I needed to warp me fingers around the front panel to keep the carousel closed. After a few cycles of forcing the carousel to remain close, and caused two separate strong "clucks" from the gear area, the CD carousel became operational again. The diagnosis of gear problem seems right.

hello i have had the same problem with my 5 cd changer,i way i solved this was to turn the player top slide down then do this care fully ,shake it gently and see if a cd came out of it, groove sit in the player.if you hear a rattle than there is a stray cd in the device. you have got to shake the cd to the front of the cd dawer to take it out with a thin ruler or a butter knife but be care ful with the knife preess on the open button wale trying to slide the butter knife between the stuck cd and the inside of the cd sit cation be care.

Won.t play


on some cd players, when they are closed ,they also push a button or little springloaded switch to let it know its loaded. Now eventually these doors wear down and dont quite push the activation switch all the way
yours is inside the box and can sometimes be temporirily jammed down with blue tack or tape
Ive had the same problem and in the end its time to buy another system my friend

Having a problem with my CD Player's drawer


This has to do with a mini switch inside the door mechanism that it pushes once but with the bounce phainomenon in electric pulses it thinks that you pushed the cd door inside manualy and it tries to close the door. Try replacing this mini switch. this will solve your problem.
