Try pressing the reset button. This sometimes helps eject the disc. If not i have found that by holding a second disc slightly above the stuck cd and very gently pressing down on the stuck cd, it can help eject the stuck disc. DO NOT INSERT A SECOND DISC. there is also a possibilty that the ejecting mechanisim is broken in that case taking in to the repair man would be the wise choice.
Hi what you have described is normal operation unless there is a cd stuck in the machine. If so, then the only course of action is to unpower the radio completely then reconnect it - this may force an eject or the unit may then recognise a disc in the player. if not, then the only course of action is to remove the lid and figure a way of manually winding the disc out without damaging the disc or mechanism.
Hi there, If you like you can read throuh the manual for further help if this fails, at this address : http://www.cartoys.com/cartoy/pdfs/kdc-122s_manual.pdf
However the units have a forcible eject mode, im raking my brain for it but i think 90% sure its as follows... Try pressing and holding eject and the power button at the same time for about three to five seconds, the machine shoudl buzz louder then normal an do a full eject cycle for about 2 seconds, If worse comes to worse you can take off the outer casing four screws (if not under warranty) and carefully lift the disc slightly and slide it out. Take care to to force anything as you can damage/scratch the unit. Another option is that you ring the Kenwwod customer service number and ask how them what the button press combination is for forcibly ejecting cds from the unit. you may need to ask for someone in repairs there to get a knowlegable answer, Hope this helps Cheers STeve
It wasn't a car cd player, but a component for a stereo. I took off the case and shook the player until the disc dropped out. We plan to replace the player, so no further help is needed. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.
You need to visit Alpines' site to download the owner's manual for your unit. In the mean time here is some info from the troubleshooting guide for your error code.
• Mechanism error. 1. Press the "eject" button and eject the CD. If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer. 2. When the error indication remains after ejecting, press the "eject" button again. If the error indication still does not turn off after pressing the "eject" button for a few times, consult your Alpine dealer. Note When the "- - - E" is displayed: In case that the disc cannot be ejected by pressing the "eject" button, press the RESET switch (refer to page 4) and press the "eject" button again. If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer.
◊ Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio and other settings. This trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. ◊ Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again). ◊ Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button. ◊ If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
Disc Eject Prohibit: This feature keeps the disc from ejecting even if the eject button is pushed. The disc eject prohibit feature is engaged/disengaged by pressing the CD and Eject buttons simultaneously for more than 2 seconds.
