Unless you have 2 jammed in there, you will just have to replace the cd player part (they are separate from the radio.) With the cd player out of the dash you can tear into it (unscrew I mean) and retrieve your CD that is stuck.

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

SOURCE: 2004 saab linear radio lights up but no sound

Do any of the system sounds in your vehicle work - e.g warning gong, direction indicator noise - if they don't then there may be a problem with the amplifier (located under front seat on left hand side of vehicle). The whole system works on fibre optic communication between the head unit and the amp. This could be an expensive job if the amp has blown (it can be vulnerable to damp under the seat - what were SAAB thinking of when positioning it here ?

If the CD doesn't play either - does it eject and load OK though ? this could point to a fuse or relay failure rather than the amp. Check the relevant fuses/ relays in the car - refer to owner's manual for the relevant locations.

SOURCE: 2004 FORD F-150 CD EJECT ERR

I've had this happen once before..CDR's are a little bigger than regular cd's.Sometimes they wont let go at all..You either can undo the battery and then reconnect then it usually automatically ejects or you'll have to manually do it or you can pull the fuse and then put it back in and the same proceedure..

I would first try removing the fuse to the radio/cd player, see if that resets the system and get the cd out.

Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: A cd got stuck in my 2004 Saab 9-3. I got it

If you have the manual for that particular radio it should have a function of one or more buttons to be pressed simultaneously in order to "re-boot" so to speak.
But, how exactly did you get it out, you just as well might have damage the player, then I suggested you go to a auto lec

Releas a disc from cd player


If you can find a pinhole somewhere on the front underneath the cd tray.that usually is where you can push a fine needle or paper clip to manually open tray if there isn't one you should try turning off ignition and whilst holding the eject button turn ignition back on without releasing button.if that fails you will have to dismantle the cd unit from dash.the laser can get condensation in certain environments and fail to read or cancel.hope some this is of help.

I have a 2004 Mazda 3 w/ a single disc CD player...which has not been working for several months. There is a cd in the player but nothing happens when I press the eject button nor the CD button; won't...


Possible that the cd disc has jammed due to a change in the disc- warming can bend some cd's, also if the cd is struck inside as the loading mechanism is struck. In both cases the set must be pulled out if there is no hope with trying to retrieve the cd softly assisting while ejecting. If you do not hear any noise while the eject is pressed then the loading drive is faulty , you need to remove the cd , open to check, If this is mechanical then you can softly push the cd out, if not the electonic section needs a check.

2004 Honda Pilot single CD player - is it possible for a cd to be 'lost' in the player? Put a cd in but it did not recognize or eject. Put in a secong cd and it plays.


I have had the same problem with my 2003 Pilot single player. Over the life of the car, it has eaten 2 CDs and they are still in the player. CDs still play fine. How can I get them out? One is a library CD, and they want me to pay them for it. I'm not sure they believe that the car ate my CD.

My CD is stuck in the CD player. It will play, but it won't eject. When I hit the eject button, it makes noise, but nothing happens.


Sometimes there is a small hole in the front panel, you may push a paperclip straight into the hole and it will eject the tray manually. If there is no hole than the unit has to be removed and opened to gain acsess. The reason for the failure is belt wear. Thank you, Dana

Turn the radio off first and then disconnect the battery for 2 min then reconnect the battery. This should reset your radio and then you can eject your CD, and reset your stations and clock. Good luck
