    Hi everyone. I have the above mentioned player, and when I open the drawer the belt doesn't sound like it stops spinning and after about 1 or 2 seconds, the tray closes by itself.

    I tried looking for some type of switch that signals tray open/closed, etc. but couldn't find one on this mechanism. Just a white cam that turns.

    Any experience with this happening? Belt looks fine, but I ordered one and will replace it anyway.

    Thanks

    There has to be a tray limit switch. try looking under the mechanism.

    See that #921? I think it's on that board.

    In case anyone else has this issue - there are two clear plastic things that are near a small circuit board, one near "in" and one near "out" printed on the board. Diagram doesn't show these. The clear "knob" on mine near the "out" should have a plastic piece on the tray that pushes it forward a bit when the tray is all the way open and mine is missing/broken off. So that switch never gets actuated and the gears keep spinning and after about 2 seconds it auto-closes. Since it stays open for about 2 seconds I have plenty of time to put the disk in. I bought this for 65 dollars, and it sound great so no big deal for me.

    You can probably make a new piece by drilling a small hole in the drawer, where the piece broke off, and glue a small nail or paperclip in the hole with JB Weld. Then cut it to the appropriate length.
