Display reads "open"

The display of my CD player reads "open" even after I close it. The latch is intact and seems to be working. Any ideas what the problem could be?

There is a small push tab that tells the playerthat the door is closed. If this small plastic contact is shortened or missing, the player will think the door is open. This needs to be fixed before you try and use the player. If you disable this contact so it always thinks the door is closed, the laser will remain active.

In the JVC cd/mp3 player, there is an almost invisible switch to the right and slightly up that I suspect the open/close latch internally engages when a cd/mp3 disk is placed in the player and it is closed. I fixed this problem by taking a very, very small piece of folded paper and pressing it on the plastic pop-up for this switch. Works like a charm, and the off and other buttons function normally.

Hi! on my Rio the contacts that tell it if its open or close are at the hinge side, 2 metal ribbons that come down from the cover side and touch other metal parts below them on the base side. I'm not sure if this is the same on your model but check it, if not, then on yours it might detect open/close on the latch mechanism, so check to see if the latch action is normal, or if it feels ****, sticky etc. either way - locate the open/close sensors, and make sure they look allright, not bent, broken or dirty, and see what you can do about it. have a nice day!

My B&o 3200 has a problem with the cd player. the load button opens and closes the load ddor but it seems not to recognise the cd and then just sticks in cd mode and no other buttons will operate.


laser is out. Can you open device and see if there is a TINY red dot on the laser lens? You may have to defeat safety sensors to get laser to turn on without a CD or door being closed. Careful, you dont want to look straight into the lens line of sight to the CD, look at it off to the side. A darker room helps. If the laser is out or even out of focus, it wont read CD and may confuse device in a search loop. Generally, the laser diode is replaceable but only as a unit that has been calibrated. Look for a parts B&O 3200 that has other damage and remove the farm the laser head from that. They are modular and should plug right in.

I have a Whirlpool Microwave that runs when I open the door Model# GT4175SP. Any ideas?


Remove the case and confirm that the door latch switch is mechanically intact. Next, disconnect the switch and test it with an ohm meter to see that it is actually working. It should show a short (0.0 ohms) when the door is closed and no reading when the door is open. Those readings could be reversed but there should be two distinctly different readings when testing the switch. If you don't see any differnce between readings when the door is open or closed then replace the switch. This should solve your problem.

I Imported a disc, then burned a new one. CD won't release.


There is a tiny hole on the front panel of the CD/DVD unit.
Push a paper clip in it and it should release the latch and allow you to open the door and retrieve your burned disk.
Sometimes this is a one time glitch, I would blow some compressed air into it to remove any dust.

DR6000 display "open"


you may need to replace the whole mechanism as i've had quite a few philips and marantz cd recorders with the same mechanism with exactly the same problem. when you press open/close it will display open or close with no sign of life from the player. this turned out to be a faulty laser unit and the PCB which is underneath the mechanism seems to go the same way which i found out later when i replaced the laser unit. the recorder worked for around 5 minutes then the laser started moving erratically but then would work again for 5 minutes after switching it off & on again. i cured the fault by replacing the PCB aswell. hope this helps?

CD PLAYER IN CAR WILL NOT TAKE CD'S


What the writer seems to be referring to is the same problem that I have with my 2003 Passat CD player. It keeps ejecting the CD. As quickly as you insert it, the CD player ejects it. The radio and cassette player work fine. Any ideas?
