Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)

Pioneer PDR-W839 cd player/recorder with jammed 3-cd changer that automatically activates when unit is powered-on and un- successfully tries to open each tray until it gives up and shows "E2" error code on display. Re this previously posted problem..and a solution post by master "24Seven" advising resetting by insertion of a pin into pinhole on unit..I can't find any such pinhole on the unit's exterior so does anyone know if I need to remove cover and look inside? "24Seven"..hey buddy..are you out there my friend? Need more specific info on where to look for "reset button" so I can give it a try. Thanks to everyone!

This is a common issue with the pioneer changer recorders. Usually stripping the unit and rebuilding the player with the trays re-greased sorts it out unless damage has occured to the trays.

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.

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.

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

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.
