Question about Cars & Trucks
Cd player scrolls "check player" if you choose to switch to cd option from radio (radio works fine). If you press "load" or "eject", "initializing" comes up but it never does anything. I've read on several postings that I should disconnect the battery, but I'm wondering how long the battery should be disconnected for and what risks (if any) I run by disconnecting the battery. Also, if that doesn't work, what else can I try on my own? If I need to get in to the cd player, how do I safely pop open the player? Thanks in advance - and just to state it now, I would far prefer to fix the problem on my own rather than paying someone an obscene amount to diagnose and fix the issue.
Test this topics and fix it. God bless you

SOURCE: During a repair my Opel Zafira had the battery disconnected which locked the radio/cd player. I've lost the code to restart it, any ideas on how to get the radio to work again or look up the code
Call the customer support office,

have you tryed more than the one CD?
If not do so..... if it works then it is the CD.
If you have, then your cd player has went bad, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: my 05 pontiac g6 6
it is always cheaper to buy a working used one from a junkyard than to fix the old one. look around on eBay, craigslist, and junkyards. recyclers pull the radios and owners manuals out of cars and pile them in the office. so call around to local junkyards looking for a recent pontiac with CD player. you will most likely have to take a sawzall to your old one to get your discs out, but CDs are old tech now anyway. you should be able to get one for under 50 bucks, if you are not handy stereo install shops take them out and put them in very quickly and cheaply and are yet another source for used OEM stereos.

I would be inclined to agree with Mike Anderson. I don't believe there is a separate fuse or reset for the CD portion only. CD players are pretty sensitive to bumps and jars and quite easily get damaged. This is a modular unit so you may have to replace all the components.
