SOURCE: CD Player Tray Spins Continuously With or Without Disk

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

SOURCE: CD player problem

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)

SOURCE: problem with stereo playing cds

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....

Gpx stereo cd won't work


The laser pickup head has failed, or the pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or there is no voltage to the motor. Chances are the whole assembly will need to be replaced, but as a rule it is cheaper to replace the stereo.

Sony CMT-EP515 CD Shelf System. CDs wont play. Place CD in tray and close, disc doesnt spin but 4 distinct clicks heard then nothing


It could be 3 things.
1. the Laser carrier may be stuck and may need to be gently pried from centre to outskirt and back.
2. your cd spinning motor has gone and needs to be replaced,
3. your laser carrier motor has gone and needs to be replaced,
hope it helps.

Disc Grinding, Not Motor or Magnet Thing


I think the only option for you is buy a replacement drive off ebay (you want the same model doesnt matter about the FW version) swap the PCB of the drives over so the new one has your old PCB. The same thing happened to me but when I lubed the spindle the grinding noise went away for a week at a time, so I got fed up of constantly lubing it and bought a new one off ebay and swapped the PCB worked brilliant ever since. Hope this helps.

The stereos antitheft isnt armed is it. This makes it so the stereo wont work until it is disarmed by typing in a 4 number code for your car. Its only supposed to arm if the power is cut though such as the fuse was pulled or the battery was disconnected from the car.

GPX HM1836 Boombox CD Tray spins all the time and doesn't stop


Hi
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with your model, but the way it is supposed to work, is when you load a CD, you will see the laser lense move up and down a few times as the laser attempts to focus on the disk, and as well you will see the spin motor spin a few times. If the spin motor is going all the time, and the driver chip has been changed, then there is either a circuit problem giving the "on" pin of the driver ic a signal to spin at all times, or the microprocessor that runs the Cd has failed and is sending signal to spin constantly. Unless this is a hugely expensive blaster, I would replace it given the type of problem you are having.

Good Luck!

This is an easy fix if you are somewhat handy.... The belt for the door/tray is slipping. If you remove the enclosure and face plate, you will see two motors below the disc drive. Press eject while observing the pulley to the left. You should see the problem with the motor shaft spinning and the belt slipping. Replacing the belt is possible without any further dissassembly. Simply bend some light wire into an L shape and you should be able to hook both pulleys and lace the new belt on. As far as obtaining a new belt I decided to do the simple thing and use a slightly smaller rubber band. The repair has held now for almost three months and the player is used everyday. Good luck.
