I had the same issue a long time ago and it turned out that the belt that drive the opening mechanism was slippery, Replacing the belt solved the issue.

You may try to gently help the drawer with you hands to see if the belt is only slippery or maybe is completely gone.

Wiring parts for 6 stacker CD changer to head unit

WHAT COUNTRY? Audio options vary by country.
part numbers are at the dealer. only.
you post fails to say the goal, (repair , upgrades, what?_ damage during theft)

this drawings exist only one place, the FSM.
Honda sells FSM and so does Helm. might have the changer drawings.
here are the free ones. shows no 2002

i looked at my online source (USA) no changer!
go to honda dealer, ask them for the book or supplement
that covers this changer. it can be in the main book
or in a supplement, just like at all dealers,this rule.
only asking works.(finding book coverages are hard, too hard.)
this includes transmission, and engine options too.
and for sure AUDIO. (ask em')

here is the book. 1500 pages, long.
helm 1 day subscriptions? for 10 bucks,,,,,,
or $60 main book.

suppliment, $30
electrical troubleshooting

no where does it say what book covers,what?

or just to buy say a harness.
go to honda, look on the screen and point.
or go online, here.
there are 19 accord model levels. 2Dr, EX on up. all wired uniquely.
under EX , no changer

i then went to 4DR VP side srs. (fancy )
zero changers.

very hard to find. the right one, eg this.

CD issue and Battery Dies

Your cd changer is stuck in the read mode and drawing power. Sounds like you need to replace the cd changer before it overheats the wiring and starts a vehicle fire.

I have a cdc 675 CD changer, When I close the draw it stays close about 10 seconds, the display reads "open" and it opens back up whether there are discs in it or not

It's reporting that it (correctly or incorrectly) detected that the drawer has not fully "closed", i.e., it thinks that there was a "jam" while the drawer was sliding towards the "closed" position.

This sounds (pun intended) like you need to take the unit to a qualified audio/video technician, to trouble-shoot, and maybe check the "alignment" of the drive-tray.

Have had problems for a while not being able to open the drawer of my Sony CDP-C5F Compact Disc Player. It required my jiggling the cover a bit until it would open. Now it won't open at all. I realize this...

im probbaly guessing that the motor that drives the draw has given up and died what you could do is open it up and remove the motor from the draw but still have it plugged into the board turn on the cd changed and press the eject button and see if it spins without a load on it hopefully there is a model number on the motor it that you might be able to replace it with

Home cd player will not open

Look underneath the unit for an access hole . It may be labeled as such.
Some CD units offer a manual drawer open device under there.

If you're really brave, unplug the unit and remove the case screws. Pop off the case and get your CD back. The you might need a draw belt. See or
