I have just purchased a 52 plate 307 and there was a CD stuck in the player. I have removed this but it still looks for a disc in slot 1 (green lights flashes) then all 5 lights start flashing orange. I am assured by the seller that the cd player works but I can't work out what the problem is. Why are all five lights flashing orange and what do I have to do to fix it?
There are a few variations of this model eg; IDCA09,IDCA04,Fiat & aftermarket units.As already stated these models do suffer from mechanism faults quite a lot.This is due mostly to the complexity of the mechanics.The flashing lights are a classic symptom of a jammed or broken part of the mechanism.They can however be repaired by certain car audio repair centres here in the UK.I'm afraid unless you know what you're doing then just by stripping the mechanism down is unlikely to cure the faults than can occur.

Loosen 4 screws on bottom. You may want to take the two front ones out. They are phillips head. Drop the botom portion of the changer down about an inch or so. You will see all the disc that are stuck. Take a pair of micro plyers and simply grab the edge of the disc and gently pull and it will come out very easily Be sure and grab the very edge of the disk so as not to damage it. It took me all of 5 minutes to remove the disc in a 3 disc changer. What caused it to become stuck in first place is another question. You shoud have a green light beside each slot that has a disc in it.
If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
IF YOU HANDY IT IS AN EASY FIX, I DID FIX MY. LOOKS LIKE YOU OR SOME FORCED A DISK IN TO THE CD HOLDERS.
1- I DID TAKE OUT THE CD CHANGER FROM THE CAR,
2-OPEN THE TOP CASING OF THE CD CHANGER,NOW YOU CAN SEE THE CDS AND THE HOLDERS WHICH SAPARATES THE CDS,IT IS VERY LIGHT TIN OR ALLUMINIUM PLATES, USSUALLY ONE OF THEM IS BENT THAT IS THE PROBLEM STRAITEN AND PUT IT BACK. FIX YA AND SAVE 500 BUCKS.
It depends on the type of loading mechanism is used, for example! if unit is a 5 disc changer, remove top and advance platter to remove disc's. If the CD player is a slot loader remove top and see if disc's can be teased to come out a more difficult removal, finally if this is a mega loader get someone who knows what they are doing and remove them safely.
Anything is possible with a bit of fore thought ,take old one out then try to fit the new one the wiring plugs should be the same for two of them but the third one will work the changer so leave that disconnected
Had the same problem. Remove face plate by unscrewing a screw found when you remove the ashtray. Faceplate should pop off and then take out 4 screws holding in player. After removing the player I shook it around a little, plugged it back in and it worked (after purchasing another, luckily I could return the new one!) Give it a try before replacing.
