Unplug it from the wall unit. Check to see if there is any tiny piece of paper stuck in the machine, if there is you can use
tweezers to pull the small pieces out. Then you can put it in reverse and let any paper that my be stuck in it come out.
Make sure that there is no paper caught in the teeth at all or it still might not work.
Most fuses are very difficult to remove by hand from an auto fuse box.
There is usually a plastic fuse puller either clipped to the fuse box cover or on the fuse panel itself (usually the inside fuse panel - if you are trying to pull one from the the fuse panel under the hood and you don't see a puller, look in the fuse box in the interior of you Sable).
If you don't have a fuse puller, try a set of electronics tweezers or standard tweezers. Good luck!
most CD players have approx a 3/16'' wide opening that the CD slides into. you will need a strong 4'' long stainless steel pair of tweezers & a small thin blade knife, approx 3'' to remove the top CD before it will eject the second one. using a small LED flashlight, [second person required] shine it inside the CD player opening & you will see the edge of the top CD. [ when light hits the edge of a CD, it reflects like a mirror]. now gently insert the knife [about 1''] @ a slight downward angle & lift up slowly until you see 2 reflecting edges. grab the upper one with the tweezers tightly & carefully pull it out until you can remove it by hand. it may take a few trys to get it out but, here's where you need some patients. ya! my daughter did that to me too. this was the only way to get it out other than taking the whole unit apart. have fun.
try unhooking battery for a few minutes and see if resets system unlikely it will work but worth a shot. will most likely have to get it out with tweezers or a pick. when you do see if it is warped this would cause it to hang up
Usually you can pull one of the knobs, if there are three, the middle one, and under that, pretty far inside will be a tiny bulb. You might need to use tweezers or needle nose pliers, cover them with a paper towel or something soft and carefully pull it out. Careful not to cruzh it! You can find replacements from you dealer, but they will cost three times as much as the ones they sell at Autozone. Trouble is, the people at Autozone usually are not very helpful in finding these bulbs. But they are there, you'll just have to find them yourself.
I had the EXACT same thing happen with my 2 year-old and our 2006 Odyssey last week! I drove to the dealer today to have them remove it and after banging hard on the side of the DVD player for several minutes, they said it was really stuck and I would have to pay $400 to have the DVD player removed and sent to a repair center. What!?!?!
I came home and decided to try the tweezer idea. I am not handy and I'm eight months pregnant so I couldn't get as close as I would have liked to the DVD player but as soon as I propped the little rubber doors open with the tweezers to take a peek, I saw both DVDs!! I pulled the top DVD out in about 3 seconds. I then turned my car on and the second DVD popped right out!! :) I put the DVD back in to make sure everything worked and it did. I CANNOT believe I was considering spending $400 AND be without a DVD player for weeks while they shipped it off. The DVD I pulled out has a scratch from where the tweezers were holding on to it but it's on the very outside of the DVD and if I do need to replace it, ... we're talking $10-$20 rather than $400 . Sooooo glad I didn't listen to the dealer this time!!! :)
slide a knife in the cd drawer, in a slightly downward manner......get a pair of tweezers, then press eject on the cd unit, when u feel the cd moveing slightly against the knife, put in the tweezers and grab the cd............may take 1 or 2 tries
Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and, with no key in the ignition, pull the fuse out for a minute (or more - I've seen TSBs that say leave the fuse out for 10 minutes), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio presets and other settings. Make sure you have any codes for your radio that may be required since disconnecting the battery cables can cause the radio to quit working too. This fuse trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. Check your owner's manual - you may have more than one fuse that controls the CD and/or the radio and you may need to remove all the related fuses. (There's a "risky" variation of this tip described in the Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems section of the guide for attempting to fix a CD changer)
Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again).
Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button.
If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
Some players, especially aftermarket ones, use a CD cartridge or magazine. Tapping on the cartridge while pressing the eject button sometimes ejects stuck discs. CarSpace member Alwaysfords2 has been able to remove stuck CD magazines by using a piece of shim stock or a hack saw blade and going alongside one of the long sides of the magazine to hit the release. You can rock the magazine a little bit in the slot to see the mechanism and it should be easy to release - sort of like using the little pin hole on a CD drive, the magazine pops up as soon as it is freed.
Remove the faceplace from your player (be gentle; something like a butter knife often works without damaging the bezel or breaking tabs). Then look for a tiny, usually recessed little button that you can press. You may need that unbent paperclip to reach the button.
Find a coaster in your junk drawer - by coaster, I mean an old CD that doesn't work. Or use a blank one if that's all you have. Insert the coaster about an inch into the slot (yes, on top of the stuck CD). Then turn the ignition on and hold the eject button and wiggle the CD around. Don't be hamfisted - you're just trying to give the player some traction to help it eject the stuck one. If this fails, then try slipping the edge of the coaster (or something even thinner) under the stuck CD and pry it up while pressing the eject button. Again, be gentle - you don't want to ruin the player when a pro may be able to remove the unit and free the disc for $20 or so.
Find a Popsicle stick or something thin but rigid and tear off a few inches of Scotch Tape from that roll you keep in your junk drawer (next to all those ruined CDs you intend to make Christmas ornaments out of some day). Put the tape on the top of the stuck CD using the thin stick to help attach the tape firmly to the disk. Like the hint above, the idea is to lift the CD enough to enable the player to eject it.
At least one CarSpace member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard!
Foreign objects stuck into the player, or CDs that miss the slot entirely yet wind up inside the unit usually require pulling the CD player to remove the disc.
If all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.
