Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video
While playing, disc stopped, error msg appeared- then display read "no magazine". cannot extract magazine or change discs as head unit does not recognize magazine in place. this unit is a changer in a land rover and has the alpine product # xqe100240
has been working w/o problem until now.
Most likely there is a CD jammed in transit between the player mechanism and the magazine. This is a common problem. You will have to remove the unit and disassemble it sufficiently to get the CD back in the magazine and, in turn, allow the magazine to be removed.

if you open the cage on the unit, you can pop the tray back out of the mechanism by VERY GENTLY turning the load gear on the carriage, be sure to not slip any gears on the drive or the changer will be out of sync and will be garbage unless you have it serviced by an Alpine service center. you are best to turn the 1st. gear beyond the carriage motor, or you can apply power to the motor (which I don't advise) to let the motor eject the tray. if you do choose the power method, be 100% sure of the polarity first otherwise you will damage the carriage and drive gears. the motor has a brass gear and the rest are nylon gears, the brass gear will very easily shred a nylon gear. want to be extra careful? manually turn the load motor gear itself, it will take alot longer to do, but will be the safest. I've been inside these machines quite a bit, hope I was able to help.

Is there a pin-hole on the front of the cassette? If so, insert a paper clip into the hole to manually release the cassette.
