Need Help with CD Player

by Tufenuf / December 15, 2004 7:26 AM PST

I have a Technics SL PG300 single disc CD player and the CD drawer will not open. I can press the eject button it will open only about 1/4 inch and after a few seconds it closes completely by itself. I have a CD in it and it plays fine but I can't eject it. I want to remove this CD. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I dont know anything about the Technics SL PG300, but I know that most of the CD players that I have run across have a tiny hole in the front that you can insert a paper clip or piece of wire into...CAREFULLY mind you, but if done correctly will pop open your CD player...perhaps there is something lodged in there...
Anyway, if it does not have it, I have no more advice...but I was just thinking that it may have that feature in it.

Phate_24, It did not have the small hole like many have but I finally go it open by removing the face plate on the CD drawer. I then was able to open the CD drawer, replaced the face plate and all is working well again.

Thanks again,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
