I have a Sony mini hifi stereo(pixy) and when ever I close the tray it continues to ... my cd player drawer opens ...
These units are actually nice units. There is a "loading belt" inside that controls the tray movement as well as the final "load" of the mechism into the play position. If the load does not complete, the unit will "eject" or open up. This is most often cured by replacing the loading belt. This is a common problem with any rubber component. As it ages, it gets a little slippery and thus will not have the grip to complete the loading sequence. The belt for this will run about $5.
Mine does the same. Press eject and give the front of the draw a sharp tap.. the draw should then open.
Also when loading a disk give the draw a hard shove closed just as it is almost shut - seems to make the disk read ok.
I think both problems are related to a worn / slack tray drive belt... I just haven't been able to find a replacement.
Most disk read errors that are not caused by the disk itself are caused by having a dirty lens in the drive you put that disk into.
Two easy ways to clean that lens are either buying a cd lens cleaner (cd with brushes on the underside of it) or by using a can of compressed air to blow the debris off the lens.
If you go the route of compressed air in a can, there is an extension that comes with the can...it usually looks like a mini red sipping straw. You can reach the lens by open up the drive tray and pulling the power to the console when it is open. The reason to pull the power is that you can now move the tray halfway closed without it auto closing on you. When you have access to the lens from positioning the tray, stick the extension into your console and place it right at the lens and press the nozzle to spray the air. Do this a couple times and try reading your disk again.
Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged
in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO
button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR
ALL" appears, then power on your system.
This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....
I've been messing with mine because it says no disc and I messed it up so it started saying this error. Unscrew the screws around the top (4 screws) and slide off the top cover. The small black rectangular box that sits over the eye/laser can be removed carefully by compressing the clips. Then the cd tray can be removed. I figured out this error was coming up because I had the tray out of alignment... so try to see if that's the problem with yours... also the eye itself slides (the entire mechanism it's on... slides away from and towards the place where the cd sits to be lifted and read) and it should be as close as possible to the area that lifts the cd. Sorry if this isn't making sense... trying to explain in the best way possible. The tray being out of alignment causes that error though.
Cd cleaning disc is not advisable to clean your laser lens.. all you have to do is manually cleaning method! open the unit go to laser lens and clean it with 100% cotton buds then rub it slightly clockwise, but careful this is sensitive parts.
