CD jammed in player

I have a CD jammed about half way into the player. The disk had been playing normally for about a week - but when I went to switch disks this morning - it jammed. I can't eject the cartridge. Is there anything I can do short of taking it into a repair facility??

Hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent. regards Mark

Hi, my sony changer control audio master wx-c580r doesn't want to play CDRs, any reason why?

On the player there must be the loge CD-R compatible. If not, it wont play CD-r disks.
Normal CD's have a metallic reflector layer, giving a high contrast. CD-r disks have a dye, that will be changed in colour by a laser, giving a lesser contrast. When the laser and detectors in the player is not capable of reading the lesser contrast they can't play CD-R disks. Most older players can't. Sony is one of the manufacturers who deliberately kept there players incompatible with CD-r disk the longest.

'03 Honda Accord 6 disk changer won't load/eject

i had the very same problem with a six stacker in my ford, the stacker inside has come of its tracks even by one or two teeth so when the cd tries to eject it jams on the side walls because of this alignment, only way to fix is to take it out and realign. may need to get a mechanic or your dealer to do it like i did as the computer system was attached to my cd player. not sure about the accord but this is a familiar problem with all sorts of 6 and 10 stacker cd players

Ford au fairmont 6 stacker cd player wont give back cd's it tries to eject, now red light ion load button all the time and wont turn on.

I had this problem...ignored it for a year then decided to have it fixed. No-one could fix it where I lived so before I went out and bought a replacement, I removed the top panel on the player (the one over the cd stacker) and had a look myself. There were 2 round discs loose in the player that I guessed were supposed to be attached to the 'arm' that takes the cd and spins it to make it play. I put them back on the 'pin' on the arm - the white disc first then the silver and black one on top and its playing again. I dont know how long does tend to skip sometimes though. Better than nothing at all - and at least now I have a radio too. I'm just a girl who guessed were the parts went however....but maybe the parts inside have atendency to get loose and fall off? Good Luck.

Error 3 comes on display when I press disc button to play a cd. cd will not play, cds will not eject

It's one of two things; more than likely the cartridge is jammed, meaning it tried to return a cd in a slot where there already was a cd stored and has jammed half way. The way to confirm this is to open the slider door to the cartridge, use a good flashlight, and try to see if a CD is "half in- half out" of the transport. Don't force the CD into the cartridge or transport. What you have to do is pull the unit out of the car, take out the screws on the sides and top if any and take the top off the player. Now you can see exactly whats wrong. if there is not a CD in the transport, gently push the cd into the player, freeing it from the cartridge. Now plug the unit back in with the top off and watch the mechanics, it will automatically reset itself. once this is done, eject the cartridge and carefully look at it for bends or warps, if you find any, replace the cartridge before you use it again. They just get warped over time and vehicle heat and is a very common problem. Hope this helps

Cd stuck

5 Other Users Have The Same Problem Comment by babba booey, posted on Jun 26, 2008before you spend $$ to have someone do anything, take the radio out of the dash yourself. what;s the worst thing that can happen, you break the radio that doesn;t work?

take the top of the radio apart and move the cd around... it's jammed and needed help to set up in the player.

put it back in the dash and push play. it should work. i just fixed mine and i am happier than paris hilton in a sausage factory.
