Whenever i hit the "open" or "eject" button, it partially opens then closes back up and turns back on, then partialy opens , then closes back up etc... until i unplug the power ,, it plays radio fine, but as soon as i hit the open button, it goes crazy,, please help
I had load of these units and the cure is simple. You need to replace the ribbon to the faceplate as these get damaged due to wear and tear. Every unit i had with this fault, i fixed by replacing this ribbon. Buy the ribbon and surround as the new surround is a modified one to give extra life to the ribbon. Hope this helps, good luck!

Re: wont stay open
By your explanation it seems to be a servicing problem. there is dust inside the deck .have it serviced.
if your deck has a RESET switch on the face plate,press it once to completely reset your cd player.i hope this solution helps.

please observe when you push the eject button display applys the open or eject cd?.if yes something wrong with your mechanisum.it has several microswitches and bad contact of them occur this type problem.sometime loading mechanisum stuck because of loose belts.open the cover of your cd player and check cairfully.
come back with results.
if you have already tried hitting the reset button you should first remove the faceplate and check the contacts on the main unit and the back of the faceplate. if they are dirty clean them (with power off) with contact cleaner or a small eraser. if your lucky that will fix the problem but most likely you have a bad ribbon cable. this cable attaches the faceplate contacts to the main unit and flexes as the face tilts. after time these cables get small cracks that may not be visible. you can usualy buy the part from a place like pacparts.com and replace it to solve your problem.
An install gone bad. Something is hindering free movement of the face plate open mechanism. Closely inspect the top edge of the bezel, is the face plate trim ( thin plastic ornamental frame covering the ugly aluminium mounting sleeve) snapped securely back in place? has it been fitted upside down?, is it deformed?.
I have the same problem, and all my problem was is that one of the wheels were out of place. You can see these white gears at the bottom left and right. Just stick something in there and push it back in place. It should just snap back in.
