I would try to repower it, remove power from the changer and see if it resets, if it still doesnt work then try turning off the power button and see if that helps.

    The exact same thing happend to me, and by the looks of it, lots of other people. Did you fix the problem?

    This is a common problem when the battery fails. You will have to pull the cd player and reposition the disc that is out of place in the player. Once you do that all will be back to normal.

My cd changer kept changing cd on its own. Now my battery is dead. Is the cd player the cause for the dead battery, or did the cd player malfunction because the battery was dying?


With the low current draw that a cd unit uses It would take some hours to affect a good battery. Remove the fuse for the cd unit and have a battery shop check the battery for a bad cell ( Load test on the battery). Pull the cd player and have a tecki look at it as I feel you have 2 faults not connected.

I am very sorry to read your problem, but I'm afraid the unit is 'non-repairable'. I've seen this on more than 2 dozen Hyundai Sonata's. Replacing the battery had nothing to do with it... it's when the original/other battery went dead, the internal (already weakend/aged) circuits went permanently to sleep and will probably never wake up again. The 'reset' the dealer tried was merely removing power to the unit. In a sense, when your battery went dead and you replaced it, you also did a 'reset'.. but it wouldn't come back completely. The CD changer has known problems. The noise you hear is the CD Changer trying to 'boot up' so to speak. It's programmed to complete an internal 'Set Up' and "identification' of any CD's which may already be there -- it just quit working. Its Electronics have malfunctioned - basically the CD changer circuit board.

Cd player won't eject the cd out


I don't know exactly how to tell you to fix this problem. I'm not sure if you have just the single disc cd player or the 6 disc cd changer. I just had this same problem a couple months ago. I put my disc changer in one day and it just decided it didn't want to play or eject. I have no clue what caused that to happen. It was stuck in there for about a month and then my Explorer died on me one day. I had to get a new battery. I hooked the new battery up and then out popped the disc changer. I am still not positive if that was the problem but it could possibly have been caused from the battery not having enough juice to fully power it enough to eject it. I'm not sure if that might help you out any but I figured it's worth a shot, ya never know. Well, good luck!

It might be your anti-theft alarm system. When the car doesn't start, is there a ticking sound inside the car? If so, hit the unlock button a few times on your keyless entry remote, until the ticking stops, then try to start the car. Hopefully this helps.
