Jammed cds in a 6 cd changer ford ranger 2002

sounds like the tray inside was misaligned when the cd went in. and it probally sent the disc into a occupied slot. you will have to remove radio and disassemble to repair. also try just unpluging radio and plug back in. sometimes it resets the radio and will start ejecting the cds

Won't Play CDs

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.

Cd Changer will not play CD's

hi does it then say no cds? does it try and load the tray? sounds like it is not reconising that any cds are inserted, could be the laser, faulty or the tray is not reaching the tray in/loaded switch. not worked on many jvc units, so it a bit of guess work regards Mark
