Pioneer CT-A9

My CT-A9 does not eject/open. It has been standing for a number of years and therefore is there something that need to lubricate??

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

CT-A9 problem of eject / open

Sir, if there is no problem with electronics with in the unit ... then presumably it is only the transport belt that is worn out. That is the smallest among the 2 belt within the transport. Just replace the belt carefully with a new slighly tight one. Also observe the quality of the other bigger belt it might be worn out to.
