SOURCE: CD Player does not eject CD

Just took one apart tonight. Same problem, put in cd-played fine-push eject then click click click.
2004 nissan sentra 140 watt single cd player/radio.
This dash comes apart by pulling the top of dash (with the tray) straight out the clips should release. the bottom part had to be pried a little, then remove four screws and slide out the radio still attached to the mount and dash etc. One screw holds on the top of the stereo. After removing the screw you must pry the top off. Now it gets a little tricky, you must remove the cd player portion, however there are 5 tiny springs holding it down to some pads. The two springs in the rear are under a piece of the stereos frame held on by two screws, I had to use various sizes of tweezers to get the springs off. Lift the player out of the radio about an inch, you will see one 1/2" ribbon in a connector, the top of the connector slides out along the ribbon to release. The other ribbon about the same size plugs into a small daughter board in the radio, it just pulls out and pushes in (you can feel it is reinforced). once out turn it over and you will see what would be considered a gearbox, (small white gears in a see through case) one of the corners of this case has a screw through it. This corner has broken away from the board letting the gears come apart when trying to eject (this is the clicking). I took a soldering iron and melted the plastic back together and put a small amount of 5-min epoxy on for good measure. When putting back into case you can hook up the ribbon cables before all the spring grief and test it out. Mine worked perfectly again. Be care full when putting back together, there are a lot of little micro switches that must be in the correct position) Example, if the cd is ejected the white arm on the right side must be in the correct position. the read head (laser) must be away from the center of the cd. I believe it was easier to put together with it in the cd-in position (without a cd in it) so the laser must be toward the center of the cd. Don't force the laser, use the worm gear to move it in or out. I couldn't put one of the springs back on but it still works fine Good luck, it's not as hard as it sounds

SOURCE: Cassette and Multiple CD Player are jammed

855912d.jpg5a89282.jpgea9be37.jpg

Hi,

If you hear a whirring sound followed by a click (or series of clicks) when trying to eject a cassette, then you probably have a broken tape which has wrapped itself tightly around the first spindle, thereby preventing the cassette bed from raising to the eject position.

That was the problem a few days ago with my father's Becker Audio 10 unit fitted in his E240.

You will need a set of removal tools (see photo 3), a flat bladed screwdriver, a small cross-head screwdriver, a scalpel (the latter's small sharp blade is needed to get into the confined space and cut away the offending tape) and, possibly, a small Torx driver.

1
Remove the unit from the car using the removal tools and disengage the antenna plug and the two electrical connector blocks (1 x single and 1 x double) from the rear of the unit.

2
Using the flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully prise the top cover away from the unit - I started at the back on either side and then slowly drew the screwdriver forwards until enough of the top cover had been raised to allow me to grasp it and pull it free.

3
Remove the small, black, cross-head screw (circled in red and marked 'C' on photo 1) nearest the front of the unit and then remove the plate it is securing by lifting and moving to right (to disengage it from the securing pin (indicated in red on photo 1).

4
Remove the small, black, cross head screw (also circled in red) towards the rear of the unit. It is now possible to remove the side fence by carefull manipulation, disengaging the lugs and pin indicated by the red arrows on photo 2. TAKE CARE NOT TO DAMAGE THE RIBBON CABLE indicated in blue on photo 2.

5
The broken tape wrapped around the spindle will now be visible (the approximate position is indicated by the blue disc with a white X on photo 1). Use the scalpel to carefully cut away the tape from the spindle - this could take several minutes depending upon the amount of tape and how tightly it has been wound.

If greater access is needed, remove the Torx screws (circled in red and marked 'T' on photo 1) to partially disengage the cassette sub-assembly. It will remain connected the the printed circuit board at the rear so care should be taken not to move it excessively.

Once the damaged tape has been cut away the eject mechanism should function normally once more.

Reverse the forentioned procedures, secure the top cover and re-install unit, remembering to have the code card handy!

I can't suggest any solution for the autochanger.

Best of luck,

JC

SOURCE: my in dash cd player broke on my 2003 cooper s. i

If you are saying that two cd's now occupy one spot try retracting or clamping hold of one with a pair of hemostat surgical locking tweezers you are going to sacrifice the cd but if you can successfully clamphold of one and remove it you could save $$$ in audio equipment repair. Try to purchase the smallest hemostat locking clamps you can find for this procedure because the entrance to the cd is very small, even after removal you will probably find you have the same problem you started with and the unit will have to be removed for servicing or replacement. When you say it broke if I were you maybe I would just remove the faulty cd player replace it, then try to to extract the cds' without damaging them by disassembling the player that's a second option I thought i would throw out there. Good luck.

Radio is stuck on AM station can,t get FM ,won,t eject cd


Look for a small hole next to the CD player, if there is one, use a tooth pick and push the reset/ eject button in and see, if it will eject the CD while it is on.

Mini cooper radio quit , fuses not blown


IF you used a knife to attempt to remove the second cd that was stuck and the blade went UNDER the cd, it might have hit the the head of the cd player and shorted something out. IT might have also cause the head to be jammed and it wont move. The only thing that you can do now is remove it.

The single CD player on my 2004 Saab 9-3 linear plays fine but nothing happens when you push the eject button and the light on the CD is not on.


Unless you have 2 jammed in there, you will just have to replace the cd player part (they are separate from the radio.) With the cd player out of the dash you can tear into it (unscrew I mean) and retrieve your CD that is stuck.

2010 Jetta My daughter had a cd in and loaded another one. It is a single cd player. I don't know how it took it? It won't eject. How do I get them out??


If possible remove the unit from the dash, remove the top plate and push the cd out. If not I have removed stuck cd's with small flat nosed needle nose pliers.

Hi, my CD player is busted in my 2006 Malibu Maxx LT V6. My CD player won't eject the current cd I have in it, but is still capable of playing the stuck CD. Is there anyway I can get it out?


i have the same problem!!! what i do is press eject i put the key in the cd slot and turn it sideways....and then a pair of tweezers easily fits in there and you can get it out. then to play a new one you have to put the cd in and press down on it with your ever so handy chevy key!!!

MINI: Trying to eject non-existent CD


I have only seen this problem once and the only fix was to replace the cd player. I would suggest to get an aftermarket cd player from electronics store and have them install it. The factory option is over 700 installed. sorry
