Hi this is a very common problem with most cd players of this type, the only option you have is to try and force it open, once you get it to open the first time it should carry on working for a while till it gets stuck again, what happens is over time the moving plastic parts ware and this causes the parts to stick instead of sliding easily.

to force it open your going to need a flat bladed screwdriver then when you press the open button you need to try and force it open just before it gets stuck, doing this from the bottom is the best option, so before you press the button put the screw driver in the bottom in the middle then lever the driver down putting pressure on the drawer as if your trying to force it open then press the open button it should then come open, if it dont work from the bottom part try doing it from the sides once you get it open you should find it will work as normal till it gets stuck again, the problem with getting it fixed is you just cant get the parts so if it gets stuck again the best option would be to get the whole lot replaced as getting the parts to get it repaired will be impossible, these are made as throw away items which i know is a waste when most can be repaired for next to nothing but as they are made to be thrown away they just dont make the spares for them so getting parts is very hard.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a philip AZ2045 CD Player , but lately it can't detect the cd. Everytime I tried to play a CD it always written NO CD or CD EROR... Can anyone help me ,please ??


Try using a DVD / CD disc cleaner. There is a lens on the driv which detects if a disc is inserted and to read the info on the disc. If its dirty, it wont read properly.

How do I get the CD drawer to open?


Normally, there is a small hole located below the disc drawer that you can put a straightened paper-clip in to open the drawer.

Cd drawer not opening on sony mxd-d4


Could be bad belts, lack of lubrication on the MD side and even a bad power supply filter capacitor of the larger type. It would need to be seen by a repair Technician to resolve all issues.

There is a disc jammed in my cd player and the tray sometimes opens and closes but wont bring the disc out


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your CD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the CD drawer.

Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

Remove the CD and see if there is a problem with it. Most CD player drawers get stuck when a CD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the CD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

To open the CD player top to remove the cd/CD manually--

  • Unplug the CD player and take the outer casing of the CD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  • Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending CD tray finally comes to rest within the CD player. It’s the part that holds the CD loader in place.
  • Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
Points to remember while performing above steps---

 Before you remove the CD player cover, try turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come out after the machine has rebooted.
 Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your CD player.
 Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.
 Opening a CD player may negate the warranty. Read your warranty carefully before you proceed.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

NAD C521 CD Player It will not play my CDs. The CD drawer closes normally with CD in place but after a pause, the drawer opens again. There is no 'no disk' warning. The 'no disk' warning does appear...


The tray belt raises the laser to proper focal length at the end of closing the drawer. This demands more grip from the belt. If the belt is sloppy, it will slip at this point, even though the drawer is shut. Took two years of repeatedly cleaning lasers to notice this.
