    Hi, today I broke the tray stopping mechanism of one of my Philips CD-204. The actual part that broke is the one in the attached picture, I don't even know what could be the name of that thing.

    I don't think it's repairable, the moving plastic nail is broken. Any idea where I can find a replacement? What would be the name of that thing, so I can try to source it online?

    Thanks
    Andrea

    It's called a leaf switch (snap acting type), but they come in a gazillion form factors. It may be tough to find that particular part other than by pulling it out of a donor unit.

    Here's an example of some found via Google search:

    Cool! Was it listed specifically for that player or as a generic part? If the latter, please post any part reference... might help the next person trying to service one of these.

    It's a generic part. As soon as it arrives I will do that, I prefer to confirm the part is actually a proper replacement.
