I moved above changer with a few discs inside, and upon re-plugging in, it refused to open or operate. I manually opened door, removed offending discs, (one still in laser / player drive in rear of machine), unit will still not function. Any "reset" button I'm missing?
I've found the easiest way by far is to take off the metal cover and replace the disks that way. In fact, it's likely impossible to get the discs all in place unless you do that.
Unplug the unit. Unscrew the 9 screws that hold on the upper/side cover. There are two screws on each side, two on top, and three on the back upper lip. Then lift the cover straight up and off.
You can then carefully remove any CD's that are out of place. You'll have both ones that jumped into the adjacent groove, and sit a little higher than normal, and ones that are grossly dislodged. The mechanism gets stuck when a disc that's sufficiently out of place jams and interferes with passage of the carousel past points where there's little clearance.
You may need to plug it back in and turn it on to get the turntable to turn to access them all. For those stuck in the front, turn it on and immediately push the open door button. then as soon as it opens, unplug the unit so you can remove any stuck there. With the door open, you can rotate the turntable both ways (till an out of place disc stops it) without the plyer mechanism trying to load a disc each time you pause the rotation of the carousel to replace the CDs properly. NOW MY QUESTION: any way to load the discs easily to a PC for MP3 conversion? Anyone figure out how (i.e., routing the audio through a PC that's then connected to the keyboard in jack) to get the disk information to be read off the discs and automatically input into the CDP-CX400's memory?
Has been plugged in, and still does not respond. Manually opened door and removed CD's, so issue is getting it to respond to buttons.
