Hi, The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.

The display flashes "closed" and I can't open the cd drawer when pressing the open/close button. Is there a reset please ?


Try removing power from the unit, let it set two minutes without power and power it up again. See if the problem continues.
Make sure the cd drawer is complete closed and flush with the front panel. If not, something could be stuck inside.
Turn off power and remove cord from wall for next step:
There is a small hole generally on the flat face of the cd drawer through which a bent straight paper clip can be pushed gently until you hit a mechanical stop. Pushing slightly harder at this point should cause the cd drawer to move open mechanically. Gently pull the cd drawer open until you can remove any CD still inside.
Gently push the drawer closed again and restore power to the unit and see if the problem returns.
Would be nice to have manufacturer and model number of the CD player.

The CD drawer on a JVC EL-E3 CD Player fails to open/close. The CD fails to play when I physically close the drawer. The drawer does not close completely and needs an extra push to close it.


Sounds like the alignment is off. By physically pushing the drawer.
There is a motor on the side of the drawer that should control the drawer by pushing a piece of plastic back and forth. This piece can shift if pressed to hard. In the back of the drawer are the rods that control the top to drop. These need to be aligned with the side motor.

Can't close door of CD on Sony CMT-CP1


Mine had the same fault. The CD is being rejected as it could not load up - this is probably because of the CD loading mechanism.

You'll need to unplug and remove the case - 4 screws on the sides and 4 or 5 on the back. Once this is done plug back in (be careful not to touch any live parts inside), load a CD and watch. What you'll probably see is that when the drawer closes the mechanism under the drawer doesn't lift sufficiently. Give it small push when it tries and I bet it then will and the CD will play.

What you need to do to fix this is remove the front panel/PCB and also remove the plastic cover that is screwed above the CD drawer so that you can see more of the topside of the mechanism.

Remove the front panel/PCB by releasing the 2 screws on the bottom and then easing forward. Gentle - as there are pins connecting the front PCB to the side PCB. You should then be able to see a worm drive type arrangement that lifts the lower assembly. This will need regreasing (I used vaseline) with a small stick (I used a Q-tip with the bud cut off). You will probably see where the old grease has been pushed out. Once you've done this, reassemble and operate a good few times to work the grease in.

Done! Mine works fine now after sitting there performing the annoying trick you described for many months!

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

Well I fixed the problem myself by taking yhe cover off and cleaning the laser with a cue tip and alchohol very gently of course. I guess it was not reading the disc the first time it closed because some foreign object , works fine now

CD drawer will not open or close


Had The Same With Mine. Its was the belt Inside that joins Motor To Cd Tray. Its Black and directly under the cd tray at the front. Its probably either loose like mine of maybe broken. I replaced mine with an elastic band and its been fine since.
