Default Sony CDP-101 Tray Problem


I have an old, mint condition Sony CDP-101, (CD Player) which has developed a problem with the loading tray. It won't open unless the unit has been on for an hour or so, if at all. Some days it works if you press the button a few times.

I get the idea this is a common problem with this model.

Anyone have the solution?

Most older Sony tray mechanisms are belt driven. Likely a perished belt causing the problem.
Exploded view of a typical mechanism below..
belt is #53

The loading drawer sticking is a very common problem with the CDP-101.


I have had it several times!!

See this webpage for some ideas :-

I have spoken to the guy several times - he is very into the CDP-101


PS the picture in post 2 is incorrect.

Thanks for both these answers.

I had a look at the web page mentioned, (very interesting), and it seems it's only a cleaning job that's needed...

I hope.

thanks again and regards,
