Question about Cars & Trucks
The eject button does not eject the CD and the LCD screen shows "no disk"
There are two causes that spring to mind - CD's can warp with heat if left in at high temperatures or the player itself may be worn out. Anyhow to remove I would try:
First: Keep the eject button pressed in as you turn on the player this is like a manual override
Second: If the face is detachable remove the face and see if there is a small hole that you can insert the end of a paper clip in some players have a manual over-ride. Or there may be an over-ride button.
Thirdly: With power off - Use friction - try (gently) inserting a disk (one you don't care if you damage) like an old CD-R over the top of the jammed disk say 1/3 to half way and pull see if the extra pressure can manually remove the disk. You could try other items that are thin and without sharp edges to avoid potential damage.
My last suggestion: Stereo surgery - remove the head unit and cover. Depending on the design you may be able to coax the disk encouraging it out gently with say a screwdriver through the housing brackets.

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

I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.
Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.
