    The drive is not stuck or frozen it turns quit freely both of them in fact it seems yur experts need to do a little more research because there are 3 contacts that tell the system it the tray is open or closed and it was them contacts thats needed cleaned so i fixed both drives by cleaning the contacts with a peice of extra extra fine sand paper now they work like new.

It does actually appear that both drives failed at the same time or that they both got dust and debris in the playing mechanism... if you have some canned air or a compressor give it a good "shot" with some high pressured air directly into the cd "drive" mechanism. The center part that actually turns to spin the cd.

Otherwise you will want to look into getting replacement drives for this player. It is actually quite likely that the lack of use is what did these drives in. They have little ball bearings inside that spin to spin the CD and sitting idle without use is actually worse in some cases then having regular use... does that make sense? Even though I'm sure it was "dry" I am sure there was some kind of humidity that is unavoidable.. that gets in the mechanism and jams it up a bit ... You can try a tiny bit of WD-40 or similar sprayed directly into that drive mechanism as well and it could very well free it up.

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

On my Yamaha CDC-625, I can push the open/close button or the playxchange button, but the changer door will not open. It sounds like a motor is trying to open it, but nothing. Pushing the button again...


The most common problem is a slipping belt.
You have to open-up the player to check it.
If you're not familiar with it, then please don't.
It's not such a big problem, look for a local repairshop.

My receiver is reading NO DISC it is a vocopro karaoke player/receiver model # DKP-10G

First, the player does not support DVDs or MP3 discs.

Try two things:
Unplug from outlet and Turn ON player (while unplugged).
Plug back in and try to use the CD.

Obtain a CD laser lens cleaner from Radio Shack ($13). It is an audio CD with a row of brushes and does not use chemicals
