    The cd mechanism is very hard to get to in this model but sometimes through the bottom panel
    (if one)! Maybe some gears can be seen to turn
    in mech. These systems are usually not worth fixing
    but you can "luck out"!

Just got this sony rcd w500c and it looks like the belt on the drive for deck A is loose also the door will not open or close I'm pretty sure these 2 problems are related. Any insights to a quick

Yes, open it up and observe what is going on and if the motor is turning the Flywheel which is also turning the capstan shaft. If this is a motor assist type transport the capstan belt needs to be having the right tension otherwise the transport can not be returned to the stop mode position to allow the door block to be retracted. If you study the mechanism a bit pull the plug and you can turn the flywheel sufficient to get the unit in stop position remove the tape and then take the transport out of the deck to replace the belt. MCM or MAT Electroncs will have the belt size you need but you need to measure and order by IC and thickness and it will then work again. A Technician can do all this for you and you will not have to worry about any details except to pay the bill. If you measure the old belt subtract 5 to 10% as the old belt is stretched. Get the same thickness also.

Cd will not eject

in most cases the rubber band that opens the tray breaks and needs to be replaced to get your cd out there is a small pin hole at the froint of the cd tray push a small pin into it and the tray will open to allow you access to the disc the take the player appart and replace the drive belt just at the front

best of luck

Right side cd will not open. Took off cover and if I push down slightly on the apparatus in front of the ribbon the door will open but only if I push down on that point

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)

Need to know how to fix cd draw not closing or opening by itself. Repair places in Brisbane, Queensland Australia

Hello,the most common failure part on that model is simply the belt.Remove the cover,near the front on the bottom is the belt simply remove it and apply alchohol with a qtip to the inside of it to restore its grip. Also to first open the door on the bottom is a slot ,simply put screwdriver in there(while its unplugged )and slide the bar over this will free the door allowing belt access. After belt is cleaned be sure to close the door by hand before plugging it in so it can retime itself.

Need to change driving belt?

Disconnect the Washing machine power cord from the wall.

lay over the washing machine carefully towards the washing machine door and prop up securely or put up on blocks so you can get adequate access to replace belt, there is no access from the back, you will have to get access from underneath. be carefull.

There is a bolt that needs slacking off so you can get the new belt on (adjustment - Tensioned) this is usually on the electric motor, do not completely remove, only slacken to give adequate room to put new belt on. once you have the new belt on, take up the slack and tighten the bolt. do not over tighten the belt, allow the belt when on to move sideways about one finger width.

Cassette gets entangled, and does not play well

Cassette tape machines will occasional require maintenance after a certain period of usage. First open the cassette door and remove the tape and any broken tape remaining inside. Some models allow you to remove the cassette door allowing you to have better access to clean the unit. Next you will need to clean the capstan with alcohol and a Q-tip. The capstan is the metal post which the rubber wheel (pinch roller) pushes against to drive the tape across the tape head. Basically clean all the shiny metal parts including the tape head. Some of the tape residue may be difficult to clean, I use Tricloroetilene which has been regulated by the government, but you may try a product called Goof Off to clean the difficult parts, but it could eat the plastic and rubber parts so be careful. Next use a rubber cleaner on the pinch roller so you do not dry the rubber out, or it will become useless. The other problem is the cassette may be driven by a motor and belts. The belts may need to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned. For this you will need to disassemble the unit to access the belts but the cleaning of the pinch roller and capstan may fix your problem, if not you need to open it up to replace the main belt.

Install drive belt on harley fxst-c

Be ready to remove the following:
rear wheel (to allow removal of old belt and threading of new belt)
outer primary (to allow access to the two items following)
clutch hub (to allow removal of the inner primary)
primary drive chain (same as above)
compensator sprocket (same as above)
inner primary (to allow access to primary drive sprocket, and allow belt removal, and thread new belt)
While you have the rear wheel off, you may want to check for wear on the belt sprocket, as they can wear out.
Inner and out primary gaskets will be needed. Figure 50 dollars as I think they only come in a kit, maybe not.
If you have the tools and capability to do the above, that's about it.
The belt will run over a hundred dollars, and if done in a shop, you can see that most expense is for labor.

Sony cdp cx 355 displaying table error

What worked for me was taking the cover off and carefully threading a belt back onto a wheel. There are two motors at the back of the unit, one (I believe) that grabs the discs and moves them in & out of the player, and a second one that rotates the table (i.e., the round slotted thing that holds all the discs). The belt had simply slipped off the wheel that drives the latter. I did remove the back panel as well, to access it better, and inadvertently disconnected a sensor plug, which led to a second round of troubleshooting, but - in the end - I got it working!

Dvd drive wont open , can hear motor working but drive wont come out. we believe the cd holder isnt shifting up/down to allow the drive to activate & open

Turn the computer off,Remove power cable.Use a peper clip insert it through a hole infront of the dvd drive this will eject the door.Make sure once this is opened the tray is aligned properly,slide it in and out.Push it in all the way then power up the computer.This may work for a while,before it goes again,so you might have to replace it.
Good Luck
