3 CD Auto Disc changer will not open drawer. Denon UD M50

When I attempt to open the disc changer drawer to my Denon UD M50 CD player, nothing happens. The disc lights 1, 2 or 3 on the right hand side of the drawer are lit and when I attempt to open, the display reads "open" but nothing happens.

How can I get the door to open?

The tact switch behind the panel is being pushed in by a defective front panel button, the small switch is bad behind the button, or the volume control IC is bad. Good Luck

SOURCE: DENON UD M50 CD PLAYER no longer works

Maybe you accidentally break some contact(s), on display or somewhere else. If that is the problem, soldering iron should solve that. Look for any loosen wires or detached contacts.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

I have the Denon Personal Component System UD-M10, It is a mini size and includes a tuner/amp, 3disk CD changer, and a bi-directional cassette tape player. It was bought about 2001. The CD changer stopped...

Your suspicions about a broken belts are probably exactly right.
Here's what you can do or attempt to do.
Make sure the machine is unplugged.
Remove the cover of the unit. You may be able to manipulate the cd changer mechanism so that you can replace the belts connected to the door mechanisms. Since I am not there and I don't know how your unit is constructed I would advise to be VERY patient and exacting while doing this.
DON'T FORCE ANYTHING. And use good lighting so you can observe how it functions.

I have replaced a lot of belts on various types of CD transports and there is a certain similarity they all have. Inevitably they all have some small belt that rotates a gear mechanism that moves the transport drawer or section in and out.
Of course you can get it serviced by a professional, who will do as I suggest. But if you are confident that you can do it. Have at it.
The only problem I can imagine is locating an electronics supply house in your area.
You may be able to get a full set of belts from Denon.
I hope this helps you.
Best Regards,

I have a Denon dcd 600 cd player. Old but little used and in good condition. Used to put in a cd, close the drawer and the entire display would light up, the disc having not been read at all. After...

it's most likely the belt that drives the cd tray has perished over time and certainly if you tilt the player to help it, that's just gravity giving it a push. replace the belt and all should be ok. hope this helps?

Disc reading

How confident are you at opening it up? And where are you? If it can get table of contents info it could be gummed up grease on the laser sled.
