2004 acura tsx 6 cd changer jammed, stuck - removal or dash disassemble
I posted this about a month ago on fixya but I believe it was an appliance section...no answers to date. cd changer jammed and has library cd's in there. got "err" then red flashing led, now no response, radio works. after 2 months of dealers and radio shops answer seems to be pull dash apart. need instructions / pictures it is very involved. I will welcome a soft reset method but concensus says not. any ideas, sites, dirction would be helpful. tried many online, library search groups, acura, honda, all came up empty. I guess fixya wants the paid service????
Not sure this will work. Wondering if you could cut off your batteries and plug them back in again? It might do the reset on the CD as well since I know that the clock does get reset back to 12:00 or so.. All the best.

If one of the discs slipped off its tray and got jammed, you will have to take the cd changer out of the car and dislodge the jammed cd.
I had this happen a few years back and the guys at the auto parts store helped me remove it for free.
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!
Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.
You either have one of several problems.
1) You are using a home-made CD, and the unit is not recognizing it
2) A CD is severly scratched and the unit is not recognizing it
3) The unit has lost its memory of the CDs in the magazine
What you can do:
The radio may just need to be rebooted. That process involves the radio to be removed from the dash, and the unit's wire connectors removed for 5 minutes (do this only if you are skilled in disassembling the dash). After removal, and 5 minutes, plug the wiring connectors back in, turn the key on, and hit the eject button. If the CDs slide out, you are good to go. If not, the unit will need a professional repair techinican.
Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement... First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry. FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.
