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.

Could be a bent clip. It has to come off. Get as close as you can to the top clip and pull it loose. You don't want o break the bezel, so one of two things will happen. The clip will bend and come out, or the plastic tab holding the clip will break. Neither is that bad. it will still hold close with the other clips. Breaking the bezel is far worse.
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.
do a tune up. replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, pcv valve, clean up the throttle body plates, clean the mass air flow sensor that comes from the throttle body to the air filter assembly. Check your positive and negative battery cables. Make sure the cables are clean and tight on the battery and the grounds and also the starter relay on the starter as well.
you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 min. to reset the system. If that dosent work then you will need to send the radio into a repair shop to have them manually remove the cd and repair the changer. (the changers are very fragle and break inside) you can send it directly to alpine to be repaired.their number is 1-800-421-2284 ex 860304
call your dealer to confirm. i believe there is a problem with the whole console. i had dim lights on the heat / air section, they fixed under warranty, major teardown not just a bulb. now i have a jammed cd changer and dim lights like you. out of warranty, no help $1200 =++++ fix. it seems like a power supply and chronic problem but call first.
