You have to take the unit apart and dump out the object. With most of these devices, the access screws are located under rubber pads, or under a label. These devices are not designed for servicing. I have seen some completely sealed and not accessible for unassembled.

CD player turns on but code F61 come on and it turn off automatically. I was wondering if anyone has a fix?


Not sure if this CD Player you speak of is a Panasonic or not but I would first try using a CD cleaner disc in the unit as this code could be a protection code from damage to the unit, indicating a foreign object in the unit also make sure the unit is dry as a small amount of moisture in the right spot on some units can cause this code. If this does not fix the problem I am sure you will need to have it looked at by a certified Technician.
Be sure all inserted disc's are dry and clear of foreign debri.

Thumbs up if helpful!!!

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

My cdj1000mk3 just started to act up, i would load up a cd and it would play but sound like it is getting scratched inside the cdplayer, 20 seconds onto the cd, the cd player spits out the cd and the cd on...


I've repaired similar faults in the past and the problem has been foreign objects stuck inside the mechanism - usually pieces of paper / labels that have come off CD's.
Moral of the story - write on your CDr's with a marker pen, DON'T put on sticky labels.

CD/DVD drive will not accept any disk I try to put in it.


Do you have any small children in your house?
Seriously, I have 6 children. One (or two) of them put a quarter and two flat washers in my slot load CD drive. Took me over an hour to take it apart to fish them out.
I've also had a friend whose young children managed to get 2 cds into the slot load at the same time.
So, my primary suspect is a foreign object has gotten into the drive. I've never had a CD/DVD drive fail on an iMac other than that.
However, if it is a foreign object, you will need to take it in for repair, most likely. It is difficult to see in there. and even more difficult to grab the object.
I suppose that the cable could have become disconnected. I really doubt that the drive was a lemon, seeing that it worked for a year.
