CD player help
 
I know this isn't home theater forum, but I couldn't find one that was for this. Mods, feel free to move it wherever you think best.
I have one of those all-in-one music centers, this is NOT it, but it looks like it.http://i1.squidoocdn.com/resize/squi...ord_Players.jp
The cd player door is, apparantly, jammed. It does not have one of those pinholes that you can use a paperclip to manually open.
I can access all of it from the back, well, I can see the cd player, but there are other components between it and the back.
Any thoughts on this?
My wife bought it for me a few years ago from Big Lots. It's not a high end unit,but still, I love having one like it and would like to get that part working again.
Thanks,
Mark

Had a similar issue with tray not ejecting on a DVD player. Stuck a thin edge knife in and wiggled it a bit while continuously hitting 'open/close' button. I think mine got very lazy from non-use. Eventually opened. Closes easily but opening is a challenge.

I believe the small belt that runs on a geared pulley gets too big and doesn't grip the pulley like it did when it was new. The American solution is to send to the landfill when a 10 cent belt would fix it. It's just that no one knows how to get these types of parts.

THanks man. I was able to get it open with that. And it plays fine. Thing is that it won't open every time. 1/2 the time, I have to knife it open.
Oh well....Just be glad for the 1/2 time it DOES work I reckon. LOL.
Thanks again bud.
