Sony DAV-C990 cd is loaded in 2nd tray no other lights are on any other changes but number 2 and it is a yellow light. When you turn it on can hear the changer moving but nothing happens can not play, eject or load anything in it. Any help would be great
Be sure NOT to load any CD+ -R,CD+-RW or DVD+-R,DVD+-RW to this unit. Try to load up a standard CD see if there is audio first. If so,try a good(not scratches) dvd movie.If you have tried both and still not working.You need this unit to be repair or buy a new one! Joe

You seem to be having a door sensor problem. When the CD tray closes a small switch under the loading tray shorts telling the microprocessor the door is closed and to stop the motor (either way when it opens or when it closes). A malfunction in this switch causes this symptom.
The usual problem with disc drives is a little belt that drives the loading tray. It stretches with age and slips, so the motor turns but the belt doesn't. If you want to take the time to try finding one, the belt is replaceable.
On the other hand, new DVD/CD burners are only around $30, so it's usually not worth trying to repair the drive. It's faster and easier to put in a new one.
There reasons why your DVD tray won't eject
1, a cd got stuck inside
2, Motor belts are loose
3, Loading motor faulty
4, Main loading gear damaged
5, Somebody must have pushed the loading cd tray forcing it to load and waiting for it to load the cd by its self so it has jumped its setting .
If so you have to remove the loading tray and put back correclty then it should load by its self .
You need to open the machine or at least the top cover and manually extract the CD. Under the cover and on top of the loading tray is a retaining bar held by 2-4 screws. Removing these would allow you to lift the bar and remove the CD easily. In some models/version, there might be an electronic board partially covering the tray assembly.
This type of problem happens when the CD is defective, was not loaded properly, or more than 1 is inside. In some cases, it is the loading mechanism that is at fault. Still in some other models/version there is an access/pin hole below the try at the faceplate where you need to insert a straightened metal paper clip to manually push out the tray.
Of course the standard precautions apply, power down, remove from the mains.
If you are not comfortable on do-it-yourself, maybe you should seek the services of a qualified professional.
good luck and kind regards.
