Where do I buy a new drive belt for my HH957 Koss CD player? When the disc door would not open, I removed the top cover, to discover the belt is gone!!!!!!!!!!!! All that was left was a small stringy piece of black rubber. The pulleys all run fine, but no belt.

There is no easy quick release to the Drive Door. You have to take the cover off of the Player and in the front of t he drive tray there is a small motor that has a small belt on it. If that belt breaks of falls off of the pulleys, you will hear the motor spinning and then it gives up. You can remove a plastic plate over the motor and pulley and manually spin the drive gear to open the Draw and remove the Disc. The belt shuold be available online.
It is likely worn drive belts. There are 2 within this hi-fi. I replaced my belts with elastic bands. No issues so far.
1) Remove power and unplug unit
2) Remove 4 x lid screws and lid
3) Remove both side panels.
4) Remove silver plate from shielding cd drive
5) Replace belts with 25mm diameter bands
6) Reverse the strip down.
New belts are $6 each on e-bay
The problem isn't with the motor being too weak, but the belt which the motor drives. I had the EXACT problem just as you described. What I did was I took off the belt and cleaned it with rubbing alcohol because apparently the belt picked up some of the grease from the gears and wouldn't rotate when the motor spinned. This belt actually pulls down the mechanism, on which the CD sits, from the magnet. So, just clean the belt and you should be good to go. If the belt is very loose, you might need to replace it.
There is a small round rubber belt which allows a motor to open the tray. Open the tray, as you say you can, Remove the mains plug. Remove the mounting screws for the deck and you will find the small drive belt underneath. I would recommend buying 2 belts and replacing them both. The diameter is 1 or 2 mm less than the old one (because they stretch)
If when ejecting the disc tray you can hear motor noise from inside but the tray doesn't open up...
1. Unplug the unit from the A.C. outlet
2. Remove top cover
3. Look for rubber drive belt that causes load/unloading tray to move in and out.
4. Replace with new rubber belt..not a rubber band but a rubber belt.
Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9
Tray is out of alignment or belt drive is shot.Knock on top of cabinet with knuckles while pressing open button it will open the disc tray door 98% of time.While disc tray door is open you will see a tiny pulley to the right,this belt is probably too worn out to open the door properly.Uses 1.9 size belt.You can remove and replace with twizzers.Make sure new belt is in the tracks or tray won't move.
Usually when the drive door won't open in either a DVD player or a CD
player, it's because someone has put a CD or DVD that was not
seated correctly in the tray, and once the tray closed the disc caused
it to jam.
The only other causes are the mechanism. If it uses a belt to open the
drive tray it may be slipping. There could be a broken or misaligned
gear, or the tray may have come off of the track or rail it slides on.
In these cases the unit would have to be taken apart and repaired.
If it contains a misaligned disc, you will have to take it apart, and
remove the top from the drive. Then remove the disc and reassemble the
If you're really lucky, the manufacturer may have put a small hole at
the front of the drive. It almost looks like a pinhole, but slightly
bigger. If you push a piece of wire (like a paperclip) into the hole,
it may force the tray open for you. However, if there is no hole, the
drive will have to be disassembled.
DVD door is opened by a small pulley-belt system. Disconnect the power cord and remove cover on R6740 (one screw on each side and 3 in back). Remove top cover on DVD drive (4 screws on top). Manually open door; you will see a small "O" ring sized rubber belt (they stretch and lose flexibility with time, which is why the door stops working). Remove and replace belt. I found a 11/16" X 1/16 belt at Lowe's in the plumbing dept @ 2 for $.59. Its not a perfect fit, but the door works now!
