    It won't work with the pinhole...a cd is physically stuck in the head unit.

    My brother-in-law managed to take it apart and get it unstuck to salvage the cds, but there was no power to the head unit at all. $500+ repair fee at bose.

    Scratch the system and get a new one...or play cds on ur dvd player.

    Good luck!

There should be a tiny pinhole on the drawer. Put the end of a paper clip into the hole and push lightly. This will release the cd drawer.

I also have an older lifestyle system. The 6 disk cartridge was not ejecting and was making noise as soon as I powered it up. A friend of mine had it apart (not difficult) in a few minutes and found that the little gear that runs off a small drive motor which operates the disk receiver had this problem: the small plastic gear is just pressed on a tiny metal shaft that protrudes from the drive motor and moved forward enough so that its gears didn't engage. The only solution was to Super Glue it back onto the shaft. We actually did this today. It's working now but who know's about tomorrow? I would love to keep the speakers and upgrade the player but this doesn't seem possible. Bose is a master at not allowing its customers to use any other products, eg., ipod so I'm pretty sure I'll dump the system and never buy Bose again. PS: The top cover of the player is just glued on. Be patient and it will pry off.

You can open the box and get the damn thing out by prying off the metal part on top and then unscrewing screws until you get it. That's what I did. Not a great solution and certainly not a fix for the CD player but you can at least get the incessant clicking to stop and use the receiver for radio. I have just input another CD player into the back - not a great solution, but you know...

I have the same problem. The disk is stuck halfway out of the carrier and the drive mechanism just makes a non-stop whirling sound. Does anyone know how to open the box without breaking it?

Magazine won't eject?


A CD may be stuck between the player unit and the magazine. You can try loading and unloading several times but in extreme cases it is necessary to do some disassembly to get at the disk

Jaguar 6 disc player not working


If you are getting power to the unit and you hear it clicking and making a sound when you hit the eject button, the this means that a CD is jammed in the track and while it was changing it got stuck and now causes you to see an ERROR message.
What you do is while hitting the eject button, wiggle the CD MAGAZINE up and down and side ways. This will cause the CD to fall into place and your magazine will pop out.

My 04 yukon cd changer won't eject the cd. any advise?


if you push the eject cd magazine button on the changer does it sound like it's trying to eject it? if it doesn't you'll need to replace the changer. if it does, then you've got a stuck cd magazine tray. it sounds weird, but when i was working on land rovers this happened all the time on the full size range rovers. what we did was push the magazine eject button on the changer to eject the cd magazine and sort of slap the changer around a bit. 90% of the time it worked. the other times, we'd go in with a 90 degree pick and try to push the stuck cd tray back into the magazine (while it was still in the changer) while pushing the eject magazine button on the changer. and you'll need to replace the cd magazine. if it happens again, you'll need to replace the entire changer.

The 6 disc magazine will not eject -


Ok..just happened to me. I'm a tinkerer so it's assumed that everything is out of warranty. The low down and skinny is this. The last disc holder is stuck on the metal changer tab, preventing the magazine to eject. 1. Remove the six screws on the left and right sides. 2. Use a small flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry off the front Alpine CHM-S620 plastic facia.\ 3. On both left and right sides, collapse and push in the rubber suspension mounts. 4. Carefully remove the vertical/horizontal mount springs. 5. Gently pull off the data cable ribbon. 6. Flip over the changer unit. Use a coathanger to gently push the cartridge back into magazine. **You may damage the cd and last holder. Small price to pay to get things back to working order though. You may also have to wiggle the last cd holder to get it over the metal lip. 7. Reassemble in reverse order. 8. Change out that last cd cartridge so it doesn't jam again. Good luck.

Can't eject cd magazine - E-99 error message


I had the same problem. I opened up the unit and found out that there is a plastic gear that moves the loader. When worn the loader can not load tha magazines nor change cd's. I replaced the gear and the cd autochanger worked fine.
