There is a photo LED detector at the input to most cd slots. when a cd is inserted the light is blocked and triggers the motor to pull the cd in. i think your cd detector circuit is faulty

I have the same model stereo and mine did the same just tonight! Ticked me off. I put in a CD and it played (been playin' CDs with no problems earlier) then the CD itself messed up. So I hit the eject button and nothing. All I see is AUX and radio tuner on it. No CD. what else sucks is I don't have an antenna hooked to it yet, (took out of my old van that was totalled so I didn't get an adaptor for antenna). I looked for a reset button on the face and under and I didn't see any. If you solved this issue, please let me know.

My radio wont play Cd's. Everytime I put in a cd,

Your CD player's lens is not working, meaning either if you can open it and change the lens or install a new stereo, see which solution is cheaper.( you can find stereos for around $35) . Good Luck

Cd wont eject

You are absolutely right about bose! And GM Delco as well. Try this. I've had 50/50 results. Need 2 peole. One at the nattery, the other at the cd player. Turn the key on, radio will power up. with the radi powered up,disconnect the negative battery cable from veicle. Wait a few minutes. Now this step might be cumbersome. While holding stereo in your hand, push the eject button and HOLD while the other person re-connects the negative power cable back up. Ths will do a reset on the stereo and you may get lucky!

Don't put anymore cd' in it. Your only other option if you want that CD bad enough is to disassemble the case of the stereo and manually move the mechanism to eject it. Hope this helps

CD stuck in Car CD player

I just fixed this in my x-terra. I had to buy a new stereo because the rubber roller that grabs the cd was worn or something. I even took the whole thing apart and cleaned everything. This was the only fix.

Avh-p5700 pioneer

My first suggestion is to not purchase "used" electronics from eBay. I bought the same kind of unit from eBay... and mine is broken too. I got a cell phone, car stereo, and a remote.. they were all not working properly when I received them.

Did you try the restart button. It is a small, pin size button on the right-side of the unit near the 4-way select buttons. My player wouldn't eject a cd either, and when I pushed the restart button with a pin, the cd ejected and the unit was ok for playing cds... that's about it

Stereo won't read discs.

Did you finalize when you finished your recording? also try playing your new cd on your auto or home system
