The problem of lid not opening automatically, but only manually instead was due to a worn gear; 
A co-member of our Dutch Beolover Club BEOFRIENDS"" could supply me with a new 3D printed gear(wheel).
1) After taking the motor/gear mechanism apart a littlle plastic  strip fell out: also see picture. I can not detect    traces of a spot where this thing was situated.
2) Stupidly enough I forgot to pay attention to where (see picture:) the loose wire (ground I assume) was           attached to.
3) In searching the internet I came across pictures of a CDX displaying the lid mechanism, where you can          see two  switches, whereas my machine has only one; 

After completing the gear swiitch I did not dare to power up the CDX  because of that loose wire.

Is there anyone around who  could help me with these three problems.

Hi,

The plastic piece you show looks like the lever arm for one of the contacts and as I remember the CDX has two contacts, one in each side.

The grey wire as I recall it should be attached to the metal frame holding the servo board.

Hi,
I'm not 100% sure, but it looks to me like the broken piece is from the push-rod that the "Eject" button is connected to.  Follow the eject button towards the back of the machine, you'll see two spacers (keeping the CD tray lift mechanism seperate from the eject shaft), the front one is a fat brass spacer and NOT that one, it's directly above the second one (with the machine upside down).
I've just repaired mine, I tried polystyrene glue, gorilla glue but niether worked well, instead I used Cyano which has lasted OK till now.
Hope this helps.

Hi guys,

You are very helpfull sofar,8

I have not been motivated for a while because of being contaminated ( although not heavily) with the Covid stuff.

Almost recovered from that I will try to follow up on your clues

The new gear had already been placed before the virus forced his way into my attention to the  CDX problem.: the lid moves by hand and plays  a cd.

Martin, just to make sure, is the switch you refer to the one near the gear or the one at the back as indicated by Tim

If I remember correctly, there are three switches in total of this type.
You must be able to see which one is missing its actuator arm.
