Cd player will not eject


A common failure of magazine-type CD changers is that a CD gets stuck in transit between the magazine and the player mechanism. It may be necessary to remove the unit and disassemlbe it to solve the problem.

How to remove stuck CD in CD player


Is there something inside the Player preventing it from not "Ejecting"?

If there was a Mechanical Failure inside the CD Player then you are going to have to remove the Player, and mechanically disassemble the Player to (1) Remove the CD, (2) Repair the Player for future use...

I have a 2005 Ford 500. I have twoo CD"S stuck in the player. How do I remove them?


If the two cd's which are stuck, if you can see that cd's then pull the cd with pliers.Its a two mouth pliers to pull the things out.The cd may get cracked/ break while removing.But if the cd's are not seen or its very hard stuck, then in that case.The cd player has to be removed out of dash.Yes it will be time consuming, and will not be very simple.But once the player is out, its not much to do.The cd player bottom has few screws to be removed.Once you remove the screws, the complete top assembly will get lifted.You can say" complete casing" will be lifted.Once the casing is out.You will visually see the cd, and you can manually slide the cd out and remove it.---------- ---------- Click this link for cd player removing procedure from dash :--------- http://whoisbyme.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-to-remove-cd-player-from-dash-of.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a cd stuck in my cd player and can not get it out i have a 2003 e class merc


FIRST Reduce electrocution risk by disconnecting all power supplies from the CD player and make sure any electrical charge has been removed.

Method 1

Take a blank/useless CD (such as AOL free trial CD's, you can get them in a plethora of amounts in Best Buy) and place it about 1 inch deep into the slot
.

Press the 'Eject' button and gently wiggle the CD around. If this doesn't work, repeat and try to get the blank CD below the the jammed CD, and gently pry the target CD upwards.

Method 2

Get a 1 inch to 2 inch wide putty knife and wrap tape around it with the sticky side of the tape on the outside of the knife. Use a strong tape like Gorilla tape for best results. The knife is typically tapered so that if you wrap the tape tight enough it will not slide off the end

Get a piece of paper and stick it to one side of the knife. Trim with scissors. You now have a thin sticky knife you can slide into the CD player opening

Insert knife into CD player with sticky side down trying to get it to go on top of the CD that is stuck. Press down gently to get the tape to stick to the CD.

Gently lift up and pull the knife out. Hopefully the CD will come with it. You might try hitting the eject button if it doesn't work the first time.

Method 3

Get a stiff plastic "card" - like a drivers license but a bit thinner. Put double-sided scotch tape on one side of the card, near the edge of one of the two narrow ends of the card.

Get a thin-stemmed flat head screwdriver (short is better).With the sticky side of the card facing down, stick it into the **** ABOVE the stuck CD. You may have to use the screwdriver to ensure the card goes in above the CD and does not stick to the CD until after you get 1/2 to 3/4 inch of the card in above the CD.

With the card still in there, insert the thin flat screwdriver ON TOP of the card and gently press down on the card. This causes the tape on the bottom side of the card to stick to the top side of the stuck CD.Remove the screwdriver and then slowly pull the card out. The CD should come with the card.

How do i remove a stuck CD in the 6 CD Changer for a cadillac cts 2005?


The best way would be to remove the player from it's current location and remove the cover from the player.That is,if you're wanting to salvage the cd.If you're just needing to remove it,this can be done with a fingernail file or a typical letter opener.

Cd player


Some Tips and Tricks that you can try:
  1. 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)
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. At least one CarSpace member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard!
  10. 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.
  11. If all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.
