Changer won't acknowledge discs

I put the disc cartridge in the changer and it sounds like it is checking each slot and the message comes up no cd. Is this something that can be repaired and if so how is it done?

Hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent.

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

Where is the changer fuze located on an autdiovox

It's not a fuse. More than likely it tried to load 2 discs into the same slot and jammed. That's one of the most common problems with shangers. If you pull the unit out of the vehicle and open the top you will see how it's jammed. Lightly move the CD towards the tray side, not into the cartridge, then plug the unit back in. It will reset itself and then you can eject the cartridge. Then inspect the cartridge for warps or cracks. You may want to replace the cartridge, they do wear out. Also, a good habit is to run a Laser lens cleaner thru the unit itself 3 or 4 times a year to keep the lens clean. It's really the only maintanance you can do. Hope this helps

Not working error 50 and 70

Clean the unit if possible. does the cartridge eject? if so, load it with a cd player cleaner, preferrably one that uses a cleaning solution. put it in tray slot 1. load and wait. try this a few times then try a good disc, one that is not scratched up. changers are hard on cd's. If it's still not working, below the cartridge slot there should be an inverted dimple that you can press with a ball point pen. This is a reset. It should have this button, I just can't remember the exact location if it's not right there. Hope this helps. If you have a spare cartridge try that as well, as they warp.

Ej # 1 slot getting cd error not loading or playing

Try a new cartridge, they do warp over time. That would be "best case scenerio" worst case is the optic is shot/out of alignment, etc. There should be a reset button on the changer below the cartridge "(@)" small pen sized dimple that can be pushed w/a ball point pen to reset. How old is the unit? it's still in the current lineup. If it still doesn't work, call Alpine USA, give them the serial # if you don't have a receipt for it. They can tell you when it was manufactured to check for warranty status. Otherwise your looking at $100 - $150 repair. They would just swap out the transport. Best of luck!. Hope this helps!

Purchased a 1995 ford explorer with a 6 disc cd changer and it now will not eject the cd cartridge and when the cd player button in pushed a message comes up ''no dj''. have read the owner's manual and it...

If there is a cartridge in the unit, you need to take the player out. pull the housing and do a manual release. do not force it. Possible problem could be 2 discs in the same slot or 2 discs trying to enter tray, either way, if the cartridge is present, it's jammed and needs to be pulled apart. If my memory is correct the factory unit was either Alpine or Clarion. The cartridges are still available at most car audio shops. 20-30 bucks. If you don't feel comfortable pulling the unit, most custom shops can check it on the spot, and let you know if it needs to be sent out for repair. Stay away from Best Buy, etc... go to a custom shop that's been around for a while and you'll get honest service.

Not sure what the problem is

Check the changer and see if cds are inserted correctly or if 2 cds are in one slot.
