I'm sure these are good CD's that you are putting in (i.e. not scratched) but are they CD's that were burned from a computer? Some disk burned from computers cannot be read by older p[layers. If not than I would by a laser cleaning kit. This is a specials disk with small bristles attached to it. You add cleaning solution to some or one but not all. Then insert the disk in the player. This will clean the laser lens. The kits are cheap to buy but harder to find these days, check on-line but some department stores might have them. Check to see if the disk is spinning up by listening closely. Either way if cleaning the lens doesn't work you might have to replace the whole unit. Although, I suggest at that point to hard wire a aux input through the antenna wire. That way you can plug in a cheap MP3 player that can hold many of your CD's and play through your stereo.

    If all is quite and you put a CD in you should be able to hear the light whizzing sound of the disk spinning. If it is spinning and the unit has a hard time reading (for what ever reason) then you will hear the spinning plus a few quick shifts of the laser head moving back and forth. Also, checking the position of the disk label when you insert it and when it comes out might or might not tell you something. Do it a few times a see if it comes out in the same way it went in (dirrection of label). If it is different, most all the tries, it could mean the disk is spinning. The drive motors on these devices usually don't go bad but when they do, they just quit.

Disc will not load into subaru forester cd changer


This also happened to my 2002 WRX. I took the CD player out of the console and found a tiny spring (which I could not find) was not in its location, which would actuate the "play CD" switch inside. After a few hours I decided to reassemble the player and use it as a non-CD unit. The radio and cassette player still work, so I purchased a cassette MP3 player adapter so I can plug in my cell phone and play songlists.

CD will accept disc but spits it out after a few seconds


Dirty Read Lens. Usually dust.
Dirty Disc Present detector - ditto
Dirty or bad motor drive

To fix:
Blast it with pressurized air from side to side thru the Disc opening when it is open and empty. DO NOT stick the nozzle in more than 2" or you may hit the lens and carrier and ruin it.

Try again 3-4x. If it doesn't get better it is prob the CD motor and will need a techie (like me) to tshoot and fix

Good Luck!

6 disk CD changer is broken!


Hello, I just removed the 6-disc player from my 2001 Trooper. To remove it: 1) Remove the two screws above the radio area in the black faceplate 2) Remove the one screw located between the ash tray and the lighter. 3) Remove the four screws (two on each side) from the front center console cover and pull it back (you will need to shift into 2 or L) 4) Pop the black face plate off (there are some metal brackets holding it on that need some light force to pull out. Nothing should break) 5) There are two screws for the CD player and two screws for the radio. Unscrewing them will allow you to pull out the radio and disconnect the smaller CD wiring harness, then you can pull out the CD player.
When I unscrewed the CD player unit, I found that there are six plastic halos that hold each disc and move them up and down as selected. These had broken in some places and the discs had dropped to the bottom and stacked, so nothing could move...hence the clicking sound. Because there was a severe jam, nothing else could be loaded either...hence the error message. I'm attempting to superglue the pieces back together to see if I can reset it. Otherwise, I'd recommend you replace the unit (most likely what I'll do).
Hope this helps!

CD stuck in CD player. Cassette and radio works good. But CD stuck.


This symptom is often a sign the player is nearing its end of useful life. But, sometimes it is merely due to a collection of dust, dirt or a foreign object lodged in the mechanism. Sometimes it is a logic error inside the electronic memories.

So, there are a number of possibilities.

Here is what I would do:

ONE: Do NOT force it or use tools to pull the disc out.
TWO: If you can find the wires that supply the 12 volts to the unit, pull that wire so there is no power to the unit whatsoever for at least 30 seconds. That will reset the electronics inside the player.
THREE: IF you cannot find the wires, or if they are too hard to get to, you can pull the plus cable off the battery; raise the hood and with a wrench loosen the bolt holding the plus cable onto the battery terminal. Pull it off for at least 30 seconds or longer, then put it back on. This will perform a hard reset as in TWO.
FOUR: If still no removal try this technique:
http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Stuck-CD-from-a-Car-CD-Player

If it is not an expensive unit you may find it a superior investment to purchase a new player rather than pay a tech to repair it. (In the worst case the unit must be pulled, cover removed and disc manually removed; then you may find out there are damages or defective circuits awaiting further repairs; probably looking at a charge of $75 or more if you go to a service shop).

Let's hope the ideas above kick it out and it returns to normal useage.
