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!

    Hey 24seven:
    Thanks for your efforts to solve my problem; I
    really do appreciate your time and assistance.
    Unfortunately, no reset pinhole anywhere on or
    in the unit, and manual manipulation doesn't
    provide a permanent fix. If you can think of
    anything else that might work, please let me
    know my friend. Rock on!

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.

Cd will not play and keeps ejecting

source Changer Error Codes ? E-00: Poor Cable connection. ? E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer. ? E-02: No Disc in magazine. ? E-03: CD does not have selected track number. ? E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable. ? E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically. ? E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service. Sounds like the mech is gummed up, jammed, or a cd is stuck inside. Get a nerd to open it up and check it over.
