Pioneer PDR-W839 Disc Changer Jammed

Have a Pioneer PDR-W839 home cd player/recorder with jammed 3-disc tray-type changer. Won't open no matter what I do and just keeps clattering away while trying to open with no success until display finally shows an "E2" error code. Has anyone out there had experience with this specific problem and if not then do you think it's a self-fixable mechanical problem by someone decent with his hands but with no prior home audio component repair experience? Or alternatively do you think it's an electronic problem that would be better handled by a professional? Any advice and/or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your assistance!

Look for a small pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device

Hi,I have had this Pioneer CDX FM67 mounted on my bike for 5 yrs and it always played good and showed no problems.This year every time I load some cds in the player nothing happens and then I get an error...

It relates to the failure of the loading section. So check on the linking wires/flexible strip to the load motor- this is a ccommon fault and is seen most of the time.
Secondly the tray with CD can get strck due to a faulty disc- being warped. if so manually retrieve and reset.
finally there is a tiny hole near to the eject which can reset the changer if this has hung up or is jammed.
Open the covers and probe.

When i press eject the disc tray wont come out

did you just get through changing cds??? if so, you may have loaded a cd crooked in one of the trays. when this happens the tray gets jammed. usually the only way to get the magazine out is to take the changer apart and try to get the cd back in the tray.

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

The pd-f1007 301 disc player was working fine yesterday, and this morning i turned it on,, and the display didn't come on, and the tray just keeps spinning very slowly, any ideas

You may need to take the backing off of the player to check if any cds might have jamed in the actual cd player. i have one similar to this that jams because of one cd that is a little bit larger then the other.

Jammed CD & Magazine in an Alpine CHA-S634

Mine jammed after I dropped it, trying to swap it into a new car :-)
Same problem, however. Three of the six CD trays had wandered into the righthand mechanism (which selects and plays one cd at a time). Nothing else at all, most fortunately, was broken.
I removed the cover (3 screws on each side), and the small black faceplate that holds the eject button. The main faceplate came off too, needless to say; no screws, just tabs.
You have to remove the side brackets also, and the angle-adjust spring loaded pins on both sides need to be slid out. Then the body of the cd changer rotates out of its cover.
Now, you can see down into the mechanism. A CD was still stuck in the reader, along with several shifted trays. I could simply remove the CD, and with a small screwdriver, shifted the trays back over so that I could then successfully eject it. I removed and realigned the trays, which had been jammed, and it worked once more! Reassembled and reinstalled ;-)

Wont record on blank pc disks!

I had the same problem and found that I was using the wrong type of CDs. If you look on the CD you have to use the CD that says Compact disc digital audio Recordable or Compact disc digital audio Rewrittable. After I used the Digital ones I could record on it. I then tried the CD on the PC and it worked. You can look on the top of the unit and see the information if you still have it. Hope this helps you.

Pioneer cdx 12 disc changer

According to manual code simply means electrical or mechanical fault - not extremely helpful.

Try to disconnect and reconnect power and it perhaps will reset the problem.

Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)

hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.
