My unit has started doing the same thing about 6 months ago (the record cd tray keeps opening again after a new disc is inserted.) My unit is about 10 years old so I figured it might be because I've recorded so many CD's and it's not sensing the disc correctly. I'm stubborn, so every time this happens I press the button to reload the disc and keep doing that until it loads correctly and starts reading/initializing. Sometimes it loads after a couple of opening/closing attempts, sometimes it takes a dozen or so attempts. But eventually it loads. It's frustrating to do this but it's worth it because this is such a good unit. However, most importantly the best possible and correct type of discs must be used. The only ones that have worked consistently for me (very rarely is there a bad disc) are Sony CRM80RS. I use these exclusively now. As of April 2011 they're still available online from Amazon and Walmart, and other sites too. Sold in 30 or 50 packages and fairly inexpensive. I've just read some of the other answers on this site and realize the problem could also be connected to a dirty laser, so I'm going to try wiping the 'eye' very gently with a Q-tip. It might help.

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
