Re: Disc gets jammed mid-way between CD magazine slot and...

Thats alot of disc this ubit holds. 110+1!! The CD changer arm mechanism sounds like is out of timming or the gears have slipped there teeth, and or the cam is broken, or theres a couple of small microswitches that can get broken as well.. The only way to work on this unit and see what the problem is, is to get a service manual and go through the mechanical alighnment and see where the problem is. Unless you can do a physical examination and know where every lob and gear is suppose to be, I do not see any other ways.

SL MC6 110+1 disc changer door gets stuck at about a fingertip's width. Seems to be small plastic guides and the one on the left seems to be stuck. Anyone know how to unstick it?

if you have kids, it is likely that they put something in it. even if that's not the case, you may have to open it to fix the problem. best luck to you!

Disc stuck in cd player

Easy, turn off the power, remove the lid by unsrewing all the screws on the side, back and top of the lid. When removed you should see the CD jammed somewhere at the rear of the disk carrier. be very carefull and slowly remove it. The disk may be already scratched but if you're carefull you can stop further damage. Also don't force any part of the tray they are only plastic. If you can't get the disk out things start to get awkward. Write backmor take the unit with the lid off to a repair shop it shouldn't take them long to get it out.

Have the same problem only mine does it on all slots. It appears the finger which removes the disk from the tray does not slide foward to "pick" the disk. Don't know why, tried to pull it and it will not move foward I was hoping this sight might have some sort of exploded view of the linkages but doesn't.
