Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old DP850 Kenwood CD player, just set up after not using it for years. Will not play, the door keep opening and will not close unless I push it close manually. Then it opens again?

Technician's Assistant: What Kenwood model do you have?

DP850

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Kenwood system?

Everything else works, but the matching CD just opens

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

I have tried to close it and hit play but just opens again

This can happen if the CD player cannot see the disc.

Try running a cleaning disc in it, or try cleaning the insides by blowing compressed air through the slot.

Let me know if that works?
