Hi, I've been successfully transferring ancient cassette music tapes from my hifi to my PC, then burning to disk, but for some reason the CD on my hi-fi has decided to stop working; nothing happens when I insert a music CD and press play.
The red letters 'OP' come up on the hifi's LCD display. Any idea what it means?

It's a Murphy 1500, about 7 years old, I'm beginning to suspect it may simply be wearing out (aren't we all), its never been quite right since I dropped it at the back of the National Marine Aquarium and my Abba CD flew out and nearly hit a guy in a wheelchair

Just a guess, but what is the loading mechanism on your CD player?


If it's a top-loader, check the interlock mechanism that prevents the player from playing (turning on the laser) while the lid is open. On one of my older players the mechanism was a small "finger" that depressed a switch when the lid was closed. After much use the lid became misaligned and the finger no longer pressed the switch, causing the player to report that the lid was "open" even when it was closed. In my case, I was able to fix the player with a piece of tape to make the "finger" big enough to close the switch again.

Anyway, the error code OP reminded me of "OPen." Good luck.

well there you have it..haha
that is why my first guess was open.
but yeah if it was dropped or worn then there should be a way of rigging that button to push.

It probably means 'open'. It's trying to indicate that you didn't close it properly.

Oh my.....must have been quite embarrassing for sure. :thumbsup:

I think your error is indicating the CD carriage is jammed or off its track.

Its a simple fix if you know someone who is handy with devices like that. There's books at your local library what would help in correcting the problem and getting the tray back in its track.

Just look up CD player repair.
