CD tray not opening on Denon RCD-M35DAB

Denon have talked me through various button combinations to try and resolve this without success.

Anybody got any ideas on what the problem might be?

    The CD tray won't open on my Denon, and there doesn't appear to be a button on the remote. I've tried various combinations of turning off and on, and pressing buttons in different but can't get it to respond. It seems to me that it's a software problem. I have another Denon (MD35) and the volume control on the actual device doesn't work. As soon as you twist it, the volume shoots up to . The only way I can change volume is via the remote.

There are tthere are two transparent plastic switches under the tray
there (a gray plastic piece, intcasing the loading motor is nonot rotated enough, not allowing the necessry pressure on the switch.
you must in either case disassemble the reading module comprising the tray, otics annd spindle, so you gain access to the underside of it, from ence coperatrepositioning the tray or the lrotating the trigger\eloading motor.

    sorry for the typos...i wasn't actually seeing while typing.
    again: there are two switches under the tray- on the right sits the opening switch - if the unit endured a fall or similar, the tray may be tooo upfront.
    on the left, the closing switch, wich also commands the positioning of the reading spindle and optics-again in case the unit fell (or caused by usage and wear) the position of the trigger that activates the switch is wrong, ussually too far to make contact. this trigger is easily identified,consisting of a gray plastic extension atop the loading motor, connected to a a gear system, and through it, to the tray.
    you symply have to rotate it to the correct position, though it may be tricky to syncronize it to the spindle motor. try and error mo.
    in either case, you must gain access to the underside of the tray, wich requires you to disassemble it.
    hope this helps, worked fine with me, after a few hours fiddling with the apparatus.

The tray will not open/eject on either deck; it tries to open but just says TOC no disk.

I have the same problem with both trays on a Sony RCD-W3 not ejecting. If you push the tray sometimes it opens, but takes a few attempts. the recording CD sometimes doesn't see the disk but ejecting and re-entering it normally gets around that. I have no permanent solution, I'm afraid. Probably needs to be opened up and rails greased/oiled or something like that.

Hi there . i have a cd reciver denon rcd-m33 which wont open and close the cd tray it just says demo mode when the button is pressed. please any help .....

Hold the function button in while it says CD.
Turn the machine off then on.
Try to eject now.
Worked for me.

This was achieved accidentally so if it doesn't work first time, try various combinations using these two buttons.

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4

I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.
