Question about 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
I am unable to eject my cd. I push eject, and all I hear is a ticking noise like it is trying to eject
I've had this happen on a GMC truck. Go to a good beauty supply store.....(got to love the way this starts) and buy a real good set of tweezers. The good ones feel solid when closed tight (i.e. don't collapse under your finger are, just close tight on the tip). With the radio off, slip the tweezers as open as they can be into the CD slot. Feel for the edge of the CD then grab it. Give it some gentle tugs but don't force it. Now turn on the radio and hit eject while keeping the tweezers clamped and giving it stronger tugs. If the CD feels like in wants to go back in, allow it to by letting go. Then try to hit eject with the tweezers out of the way. You can try the same technique but with more force but be warned any of this be dangerous to the player as well. The CD will be scratched on the edge but might still play except for the last song. Ideally it is best to remove the unit from the dash, take the covers off and try to remove the CD. This is also not easy since the CD still has to be removed via the slot but opening the unit might give you access to the rollers or at least be able to try and seat the CD better. Also removing all power and allowing it to sit for sometime might reset the unit. An associate tells me that the sensors and mechs in the unit rarely go bad. That it is mostly miss alignments, timing or temporary misinformation from the sensors. So resetting might work with out having to even take it apart. All power would have to be severed (i.e. unplugging all wires to it) but the time needed to clear out the EEPROM chips is unknown (at least a couple of weeks to be safe). This is how some electronics magically "fix them selves" after being in storage for some time.
