Question about Onkyo MC35Tech CD Shelf System
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.

I've got the same problem. I don't know of a real fix, but I do know how to get a CD out that seems to be stuck. Push the eject button for the CD, and when you hear it trying to eject the CD (very quiet humming sound kinda like when a CD is spinning up), push on the door when the CD tray would normally open. When this 1st happened with my player, it didn't take much force to get it to open, but now I have to really push to get it to open. I don't know how much longer I'm going to rely on this trick before trying to get someone to actually repare the thing.

Check for extra CDs in the tray. My tray was jammed shut. I could here the motor running, but the tray wouldn't budge. I took off the enclosure and faceplate. After a little rooting around I realized my beautiful 6 year old daughter had 4 CDs jammed in the tray. By sliding the trays in and out I was able to pull out the CDs. After that, it worked fine.

I discovered the same solution mentioned above, to get the CD to eject: Push the eject button for the CD, and when you hear it trying to eject the CD (a very quiet humming motor sound, kinda like when a CD is spinning up), push on the front of the door when the CD tray would normally open. I've been using this approach for over a year, and it's still working fine. For me, I'm just living with the issue, since it's easy enough to eject the CD when I want to. I love my compact Onkyo stereo CD system, so finding this easy workaround has made me a happy camper.
