Usually it has stretched out and is slipping so it needs to be replaced. The elastic bands are easily available in the US and really cheap, but so is original replacement belt which costs only a few bucks. I donT' happen to have the supplier for the original belts handy but I can look for it.

Also, there is a post that explains the procedure and evenone that shows a clear pisture of what you are dealign with somewhere on here in the Repari thread

Re: 490t door problem

BE VERY CAREFUL !!! Do not force the drawer closed.. there is a small piece of plastic in the back that can break off, then it will never open right again....

GO HERE, AND BE CAREFULL NOT TO BREAK THE WHITE PART

Yes, all you need is a very small hair rubberbands. Come in bags like these.... some are colored, some are black

Re: 490t door problem

If you have the hand-held remote control for the CD changer, Manos, you could try using the "open/close" button to see if that operates the door (in case the open/close button on the CD player itself could be at fault.) Otherwise it seems the rubber band/belt is the usual problem on this unit.
