Optical sensor fine and reads disc okay. Opened up case and found that assembly which stabilizes and centers CD would not overcome spring pressure in order to meet disc.

SOURCE: having a problem with my CD Player's drawer

This has to do with a mini switch inside the door mechanism that it pushes once but with the bounce phainomenon in electric pulses it thinks that you pushed the cd door inside manualy and it tries to close the door. Try replacing this mini switch. this will solve your problem.

Well I fixed the problem myself by taking yhe cover off and cleaning the laser with a cue tip and alchohol very gently of course. I guess it was not reading the disc the first time it closed because some foreign object , works fine now

SOURCE: cd spins buts doesn't play I fixed the drawer open closing

Clean the lens of the laser with a cotton swab. Remove the cover, and locate the glass lens at the top of the laser assembly. Pre-wet a cotton swab with glass cleaner and wipe the lens carefully without applying pressure. Use the other end of the swab to dry off and remove any residual dust or gunk.

Reassemble the unit and load a disc. If the problem was caused by dust or smog film on the lens, it should now play without any problem.

You can try to release the drawer and get it all the way out. Then turn of the power and carefully push the drawer back inside. Then turn the power on again. This might help!

My cd is not recognize I get a message that read TOC

If a read head burns out or the alignment has changed, the laser is inoperative. If a CD/DVD was a copy or reproduced on a computer it too may not be read. If the medium works on other devices, then the players laser may be defective.

After i have finish recording and i am finalizing the the cd code OPC appears on the screen, and being finalize the cannot play in other cd player why?

OPC means the unit had trouble Optical Processing Calibration, which means the disc surface may be damaged. Using brand name media and being careful to not touch the recording surface would help.

It's not completing the finalization so it won't play in a CD player yet.

It's mostly in the manual

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Harman-Kardon-CDR-20-CD-Players-manual/id/386dj191/t/2/

OPC: Stands for Optical Processing Calibration.

When you see this message in the Information

Display for the Record DeckK, it means

that the laser transport inside the unit is making

the calibrations and adjustments needed so that

the recording process is optimized for the specific
disc in use.


When an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc is

placed in the Record Deck%, the letters

OPCwill flash once the Table of Contents has

been read. This indicates that the unit is optimizing

its circuits for maximum compatibility with

the specific recordable disc in use. the number

and total running time of any tracks that have

already been recorded will appear in the

Information DisplayK, and the appropriate

indicator SPwill light to tell you if a CD-R or
CD-RW disc is in use.

To Finalize a disc, place it in the Record

Drawer%. Once the disc's Table of Contents

information has been read and the OPC process

has been completed, press the Finalize button

[email protected] note that the Finalize Indicator

Uwill begin to flash. Within three seconds,

press the Select button9*and note that

the Finalize IndicatorUwill stop flashing.

The Finalization process will take up to two

minutes, depending on the length of material

recorded on the disc. During the Finalization

process the Record Deck will not accept any
operating commands.

The drawer in our Harman-Kardon HD 950 CD player won't go all the way in. It gets to the point where there's about an inch sticking out, then re-opens and tries again. This is a fairly new unit. Is there...

It turned out that a CD had slid past the drawer and into the case of the CD player. Once I removed it everything was fine. I should point out that mine is *not* a 5-disc drive, but a single-disc drive, model HD 950.

Describe your Harman Kardon CDR30 2-Disc CD Recorder Problem It's a CDR26 and neither of the drawers will open.

With mine, it was the drive belts for the cd drawers, which were stretched and rigid. Open the case. Remove the 4 screws that hold down each cd drive. Push the drives out enough so you can pull the silver facing off the sliding try by pulling it up. Now you can lift out the cd drives, removing all the connectors as you go. Flip the white plastic slider underneath each drive and you can mechanically open the slide tray. This reveals the little motor and rubber pulley belt that operates the slide tray. If the belts are broken, perished, rigid or something, get something similar from your local electronics parts store (a couple of bucks each belt), and reassemble.

I can't open the tray on the recorder side.

I had similar problem with both drawers. The belt from the drive motor to the drawer pulley is worn. mcmelectronics.com has two belts 42-1050, 42-045 that are close enough in size to work. Remove cover, press down on tray, slide tray forward about half way and you will see the worn belt. Total cost of fix is about $12.
