Question about Audio Players & Recorders
RCA Total Power 5 cd disc changer. The CD door will no longer open or install the cds. It was operating and just stopped. There is power to the unit and the radio etc work.What can I do to get the disc changer to function?
Unfortunately, it sounds like the relay or motor to open the drawer is either stuck or dead, which can cause the entire system not to play the discs even if the drawer is closed. First, try calling RCA Customer Support to see if warranty service/exchange can be made for the unit. Second, try taking it back to where it was purchased. IF all else fails, You can disassemble the unit (this voids the warranty - do at your own risk) and try to identify the motor and drawer mechanism- try removing the main casing to your stereo (unplugged of course) and ensure that the small belts & gears that operate the drawer mechanism are all in good working order by gently operating them by hand. If not, you can replace or try a repair, but it honestly may be cheaper (and better for your sanilty) to buy a new system.

Try a lens cleaner. Also, ensure that your disks are clean. If you're playing CD-Rs, make sure that the disks have been finalized properly. If the problem persists, you may carry the unit in to the place of purchase to pursue service options.
