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!

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 display always show "Open"

Theres a protruding plastic that pushes the close detection switch inside, the switch might have gotten dirty or reshaped, you can remedy this by adding height to the protruding plastic, or have someone disassemble the unit for you. It can easily be remedied by a technician...

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?
