Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hello i just bought a new gpx stero model hm1836 when i turn it on the motor grinds and the cd tray doesnt spin the open and close button doesnt respond whats wrng
Yuo didnt mention if it was used or new,. If it was new I wouldnt mess with the unit and take it in under warranty, as there is no quicky fix for this one. Its going to turn out to be a problem with the disc motor servo circuit or the microprocessor. Good Luck

Seems like the Timingfor the Tray Open / close has got disturebed. Could be a bad drive gear, or as simple as a loose Drive belt. Get it checked by a professional.

I had the same problem with my C541 player, I solved it simply cleaning the lens area with cotton swabs. No other "no disc" fake messages so far... good luck! Luca - Rome (Italy)

I'd be interested to know the brand, but you could try this:
(Assuming your CD player has only a standby button, not a full On/off button). Unplug the CD player from the mains. Leave for 30 seconds. Connect to mains and press eject as early as possible. Hopefully, this will allow the system to eject the CD before it starts trying to spin it.
Ultimately though, if it plays but won't open, it's likely to be a cog / gear on the drawer that has failed rather than some software fault as the CD plays.
Repair may not really be economical - depends on brand / value etc. If the disc is more important than the player you might end up attacking it....
