I have just experienced that the 3CD unit as part of a small system, makes a noise as if it were trying to open, but will not even with a litte pull from me. It is like it is locked shut. I must have at least one CD in there and it does play. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Nancy

It is possible the laser or other part of the CD player is faulty.These can stop working for no apparent reason at any time...
I had a Sony system that also refused to read the cleaning disc. I had experienced laser failure twice before on other equipment and hoped it hadn't happened again as the cost would be disproportionate. This also couldn't be accessed for manual cleaning and so I used a compressed airline and blew through every orifice with the drawer open and drawer closed.
I was lucky and the CD player was again able to read a disc again though a few months later it stopped working again for good. The repair cost would have been half as much again as a new system but I had the remarkable stroke of luck to find someone had put an identical model out for the garbage and so I changed the internals and have continued to enjoy my CD for the last few years, though it is again becoming temperamental.
the Laser assembly in the Player Mechanism could be dirty.....if so you can access this by removing the external covering and gently swabing the lense with a Q-Tip lightly moistened with a small amount of alcohol.
also make sure the disk is pretty clean....some CD players seem to be sensitive to even the slightest imperfection in the disk.
if you can open the jukebox and look for the cd unit. under the place of the disc you should see the laser head its a small lense
try to clean with a qtips could be dust on the eye
it helped me when my cd player did not play
Hope it will help
What your machine is doing is... whenever the unit is powered on or off the cd player resets itself and the clanking you hear is the cd changer resetting itself. The plastic trays of the cd player are driven by plastic gears. These gears are noisy when new, after a few years, they can make quite a clanking noise. Most cd changers of this age have similar mechanisms and this type of noise is inherent in their operation.
I'm afraid the only solution is to replace the unit. Opening the unit to lubricate the gears may cause more problems than it may solve, so I would not recommend it.
