    I have same problem too. I actually tried taking my changer apart thinking I can find where it's getting stuck or spray it with WD40. Couldn't get the draw open after dis assembling it. Now I'm trying to find a second hand one or another CD changer to replace it.

    My door stopped opening as well. I found that disk one tray was stuck on the side and it finally snapped. Now I need it fixed...any help?

    Thank you for your explanation of the repair and what to look for. I will grab some rubber bands and see if I can't fix it. My wife loves the system and plays it daily at her office. She has had this system over 5 years and I do not think I should just buy something comparable. I don't know if there is anything comparable.

    I had this exact problem, and eventually pushing on the center, top front edge of the CD door stopped getting the CDs to eject. So, I had to repair the unit properly myself. I can absolutely confirm that if you replace the two belts, the CD changer will operate normally again and eject all CDs properly. I found the replacement belts on Ebay with these search words "Onkyo C-707CHX CD Belt Kit (2 belts)". I also found them on Amazon but they were more expensive. I'd advise you to get the actual belts since I don't think the rubber bands approach will last a long time, and you might as well only open the unit once, and do the repair right the first time. I found that I needed to bend two medium size paper clips as my tools for unhooking the old and hooking in the new belts. Caution: Remember, do not have the unit's cover off with the power plugged in, the CD player laser can make you blind, and my understanding is the laser is invisible.

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.

It is a 5 disc changer. The drawer will not open and it now has 4 cd's stuck inside the changer. It also will not play any of those "stuck" cd's.


THis happens when the drawer is jammed. Turn off the unit and turn it on and then use the disc skip from the remote so that the cds inside will change and then press the Open button.

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel


This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!

Open & close button Does not work


Being that it is an old unit, even though it worked just fine except I had to open and close the drawer by hand. I sent it to the trash bend, It was an Onkyo C110. Thanks anyway!....Bob

I have the same problem on a refurbished unit I bought 2 years ago. I read at the time that this is a common problem and you just need to send to an Onkyo service center. There are links on the Onkyo or ShopOnkyo website.

Lousy design I guess.
