Question about Sony RCD-W500C 5-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

Stuck cd discs

Player will not play disc, nor will it eject them. When the play button is pushed the words, "no disc" appear. When the eject button is pushed the word "open" appears, but the door does not open. When another disc button is pushed usually you would hear the turntable going around - now I hear nothing. Thanks for your help

I think there are a couple of faults here. The first one is maybe a faulty motor on the eject mechanism. The second one is a faulty laser unit as it is not scanning the disc. Hope this helps.

Is there an easy fix to the problem given in the details section below?


No there will not be a easy fix for this. You can keep putting up with this the way you have been or buy a new receiver and try to sell this one on craigslist, eBay, etc.

The cd player in my car is A56820, JBL, it will load and eject cf's but not read. any fixes?


Did you get all of the CDs out of the player or are any still
stuck inside the stereo? Its the part about everything working
OK until a disc changed that makes me ask.
If a disc is jammed because it didn't load properly, you won't
be able to get all your discs out.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

Turntable will power up, all the lights come on,reads the cd but does not play. unit has to be turned off then on to eject the disc ? (hope this helps) Any ideas?


One of the buttons has got stuck, so when you press the button you want to, its not getting the message to start / stop playing. This is also why the eject won't work. Either a new button, or replacement board would make it happen for you :)

TEAC-P1260 - Initially Cd would play then eject randomly. Next would play only a few seconds then eject. Now has eaten a disc and will not eject. Any suggestions?


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricalshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you; Regards; VOTIT
