My Pioneer PD-M603 CD player is making a high pitched noise
I have a Pioneer PD-M603 6-Disc CD Changer that was working great. Now I just get a high pitched whining noise and the CD won't play. I have the disc in properly and I have used a CD cleaner. Still nothing. Any ideas?

The laser pickup assembly is at the end of life, remove top to expose the laser lens, use a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean, allow several minutes to dry, if no change! far cheaper to replace the cd changer.
To my surprise, CD cleaner disc did it for me. It's a very old Philips one with a bit of furry stuff on the track side. I was amazed it even played, but it did and after letting it run for 20 secs, tried proper discs and it works fine. And this Pioneer PD-M603 is at least 15 years old!Looks like it would be hard to clean the lens manually because it's a long way inside.
Sorry for such a simple solution, but it has saved my but multiple times. Try cleaning the disk reader laser with a smooth clothe rag or material. Clean the dust or whatever may be on it. If that doesn't work, then I hope someone with more knowledge on this matter will help.
The standard cartridge for the Pioneer PD-M501 is the Pioneer JD-M300 6-disc magazine, and you can find them at Amazon.com for $25 new. The JD-M300 fits a lot of different brands of CD players, not just this particular brand and model.

Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams. Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position. Applicable to:

the lens on the optical pickup is dirty and needs cleaning. they sell a lens cleaner disk at any electronics store. you also might want to blow any dust out of the unit with canned air to prevent it from happening again.
With the top off the unit, you can turn the tray gears manually for slow eject function. Unplug unit before touching anything inside, check internal fuses.
