I was playing a song and when I opened the drive to get the CD it wasn't in the drive. I opened and closed it a couple of times and I checked and it is stuck inside the drive. How do I get it out??? Thanks

Take off the cd tray and take the cover off.
is it for laptop or pc?
if for laptop you'll find the bolt inside the hard drive or at the ddr memory.
be careful, not to damage the optical lens.

The CD tray on my Tascam CD-A500 CD/Cassette combo will not open.

I understand that your CD tray on your Tascam CD-A500 CD/Cassette combo will not open. Here are some possible reasons why this might be happening and what you can do to fix it:
  • The CD tray may be stuck. If this is the case, you can try to gently pry it open with a flathead screwdriver. Be careful not to damage the tray or the unit.
  • The CD tray motor may be broken. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. This is a relatively simple repair that can be done by most people.
  • The CD tray sensor may be faulty. If this is the case, you will need to replace the sensor. This is a more difficult repair that should be done by a qualified technician.
If you have tried all of the above and the CD tray still will not open, you may need to contact Tascam customer support for further assistance.
Here are some additional tips to help prevent your CD tray from becoming stuck in the future:
  • Do not force the CD tray to open or close.
  • Be careful not to drop or damage the unit.
  • Keep the unit clean and free of dust and dirt.
  • If you are not going to use the unit for an extended period of time, unplug it from the power outlet.
I hope this helps!

CD player does not recognise some CDs. When placed in the drawer the deck displays "no disc" if another CD player is used the disc works fine

I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.

I have a denon 3500 cd player my cd is stuck

Open the top cover of your CD using a screw driver, (usually a star screw driver),. Then, manually turn the driving gear of the CD tray to free the stucked tray and until to the point where you can take the disc from the tray. Be careful so the setting of the tray and the laser eye is not change. Then, close the close the cover and play. You can send your e-mail thru fix ya to let me know.

My disk drive

Under the drawer is a little latching metal clip - you can use a small screwdriver to gently operate the latch, it is probably just stuck in the open position.
