Hi All, greetings from Greece!
I own a DENON 3910 since 2005 although the last few years only used same for hearing music (CDs) with a DENON 3805 as I bought a Blu Ray player and a media player for watching movies.
For the last years when turned on the DENON 3910 CD player, while pushed button for the cd tray to open, at first it made a sound when opened (like something disturbed tray to open) but after all
the tray opened. After some time, when pushed button to open the tray although it tried to, after all remained closed and then loaded (empty). After a few tries tray opened, but now you need lots of tries and
even a small screwdriver or knife to assist open tray which should certainly not be the case.
Asked local official Denon Dealer what would be the cost (a) for fully replacing the tray mechanism (worst case scenario) and told me approx Euro 360,00 !!! (spare part+work included) which i think it is too much to pay for a very nice player which is now 13 years old though... Any idea if it is possible to find and order a brand new original tray mechanism, if required, and at what approx cost? I have found one in the web / Aliexpress / but really do not know whether this is an original one (costs 59,00$ )
Have also read some threads about cleaning the tray belt by using special rubber oil etc but i'm not the guy that filling confident to open on my own the player and start doing DYI things
Any assistance your side is most welcomed!
Many thanks in advance
