Question about Tascam CD-450 CD Player

1 Answer

I have a TASCAM CD-450 that the CD Tray will stick closed on quite frequently. I can open the cover (out of warranty) and manually press down on the lens mounting tray and it will open with power. The tray that drops down slightly to allow it to open appears to be hanging. Is this a common problem. I have three of these machines and they are all doing the same thing? What's the fix?

I have the same Tascam cd-450 with the same problem. I replaced the tray motors drive belt and it didn't fix the issue. I measured the voltage output to the motor after pushing the eject button and it was about 1.7 vdc with the tray motor plugged into the main board and about 2.5 vdc with the tray motor unplugged from the main board. I'm beginning to think that the rf-500tb-14415 motor is weak but I don't know the original main board output voltage spec for this motor. I do know that this motor is rated from 1.5 vdc to 9 vdc (3 vdc or 6 vdc nominal)depending on the application and torque requirement.

How can i open my cd drive to insert my cd?


If the button on the drive won't pop open the drive, then you need to find out what is causing it to stick closed. Most drives have a tiny hole on the door so you can push a paper clip in it to open the door.

CD Player Tray keeps opening and closing by it self


This is either caused by the drive belt slipping, the closed sensor being faulty or an obstruction to the tray.

Basically the tray isn't makeing it to or registering as being in the fully closed position.

It sounds as if it is not picking up the paper from the tray. It might need new feed rollers. Another thing to check is the lift arms on both sides of the tray. Make sure the springs are still attached to them. There is also a little switch on the left side front of the tray that adjusts the bottom plate pressure. You can try adjusting that to see if it helps.

The tray on my Arcam Alpha 6 CD player will not eject and refuses to budge. Neither the remote control nor the load button on the front of the unit will make it open.


It's either the gear on the tray loading mechanism or it's drive belt. The gear is made of a soft material and the teeth wear down on the hard tray rack. Get hold of Arcam and order TP21H replacement part and belt. The same happened to me and the gear had perished. In the meantime stick something onto the front of the tray that you can use to pull it open after you have pressed the 'load' key. Place your CD in the tray, press the 'load' key and push the tray closed manually. The player will work like this until you can replace the gear/belt.

Cd tray error Canon Pixma MP810


Sorry a little late only just read your problem.
The location is not the bottom tray feeder but the disk tray. In settings change your media type to "Printable Disk" the paper scource should automatically change to "Disk Tray" and hopefully every thing will work OK.

Tray Sticking on CD Player


reoccurring tray problems are a paim. It mauy be a spot of oil or grease on the tray motorbelt, or the wrong belt fitted, and or dry failing bubricant to opening cam and sliders. Best approach is to strip and clean everything, lube only with white plastic grease, and sparingly. I use graphic powder on tray sliders, be careful not to get lubricants on drive belts. try next size down belt also, or be sure the belt fitted is 2.0 mm crosssectional area
