Question about 2004 Honda Odyssey
2 yr old daughter pushed in an extra dvd when one was already in. now i can't get it out and dealer wants to charge $100 to take out the dvd and send it to an audio repair center who is going to charge $400 to fix it. Any other options?
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!!! :)

Thank you so much for the tweezer idea! I did not even think of it prior to checking this website. My 3 year old stuck 2 dvds in my 2005 honda odyssey and when I called the dealer they wanted to charge my $115 for diagnosis alone! Other websites wanted me to pay $20 for their opinion until i stumbled across this...It really worked!!!! I tried prying both dvds out gently with a tweezer (one at a time) and I needed to do it fast because we are going on a 7 hour road trip tomorrow. Thank you so much for the tweezer advice!

Unfortunately that is about it. Once you have pushed something in like that when there is only one meant to be there it will jamb in its place. Either you can take the DVD player out yourself of have someone do it for you. This is only a suggestion not an answer. You might want to try tweezers if you are not concerned about the DVD itself. (only a suggestion and not recommended)

Here is another alternative to minimize scratching the DVDs. I affixed a
2 inch piece of clear packaging/mailing tape on top of the top DVD by
sliding it through the slot using a flat object like a pocket knife or
butter knife. Place the sticky side of the tape down, and only support
the very edge of the tape with the knife as you slide it in. Once you
get contact with the top of the DVD, roll/slide the knife sideways to
un-stick it from the tape. Now use it to press down on the tape against
the DVD as you gently tug it out of the player. I got mine out in
about 3 minutes, and the 2nd DVD ejected with just the normal button.
After wiping smudges from the DVDs they both work fine.
Must be something about the Odyssey DVD player that intrigues 2-year-olds to shove multiple DVDs in! Fortunately with ideas from this thread and a little creativity the kiddie music is again wafting through the van!

I really thank this forum. I also tried the same method using a knife, and was able to get second dvd out in 15-20 seconds. First DVD came out simply by hitting eject button. It saved my many bucks.

a cd player in a car takes some hammering(use wise)so when they go wrong replace it(cost of repair more than unit cost....)easy to remove/replace.

I have identical issue, took it to the dealer and they "offered" to remove the unit and send it for repair..... not very helpfull.

I believe this should be undet the hood, inside the secondary under-hood fuse box (the smaller of the two, located on the driver's side).
If I am not mistaken, you are looking for fuse position #5, which is marked as "Premium" and it is rated for 20 Amps.
