There is nothing you can do with this problem unless you are able to repair DVD players, the loading mechanism of any DVD player is very complicated, chances are a small part has broken. Call the dealer and ask for the phone # of the repair center they use, call them for an estimate, don't go through the dealer, they will double the repair bill from the radio shop.

Why does CD player read disc, then ejects?

It tries but can't read the disc, then it ejects it. If CD player plays other discs OK, then it is the disc. If it won't play anything there is a problem with the CD player.

2004 Ford F150 rear entertainment system will not eject dvd, will play the dvd and will run when eject button pushed but will not eject the dvd any ideas on how to get the unit to eject the dvd?

The unit is connected by small set of gears that push tray /disc out. As tray comes out it either pushes disc out of slot or pops open door (depending on which style of face you have). If you have kids I would not be surprised if something is caught in between disc and face or jamming edge of door. (know this from own experience). The face of player can usually be carefully popped off by gently prying at corners. If you get face off you may be able to see if something is stuck in unit that does not belong, or see if a piece is broken loose near face. If unit has door that opens you can try using a slim but stiff piece of plastic and keep tension on door with plastic while hitting eject button. On some units there is a small hole on face that is manual release that ejects disc - even if no power. Usually takes a long straight push in hole (straightened paper clip or dental pick) and it manually pushes gear set to go out. So many of these units are different but most do have a manual release. Check owners manual to see if it shows a picture of face and possible release hole. Have had kids fight over changing a disc and pushed in on it while it was ejecting so it stripped gears, and had kid hang on ceiling mount unit that tore screen totally off. I feel your pain....

2006 cts nav disc keep ejecting

If you can play a DVD, the nav disc is dirty or worn. Try gently cleaning it with a flat screen tv cleaning solution and try again. If a DVD won't play, the read head in the player is either dirty or shot - you should have an A/V shop try to clean it, as replacing the unit is $$$$$.

Navigation not working get disk reading error message upon starting car and every few minutes afterward

Check for a scratched or dirty Navi DVD disc. Clean or have the scratches polish out at your local game store. Video game stores usually have a disc repair machine that polishes out scratches.
Note: In some cases the Navi unit can cause rotational scratches on the DVD. If this is the case than the Navi unit will have to be replaced.

Dvd player not working on 06 Honda Odyssey

The Honda dealer just wanted to replace my entertainment center without even troubleshooting and I wasn't convinced that it was "broken" so I found the FIXYA website and saw that others had the same problem and I followed their instructions and it now works fine. I am going to call the Honda dealer to complain because they should have known this.

We simply pulled the fuse out and put it back in and then reset the radio code!
