Question about Kenwood KDC-122 CD Player

2 Answers

We just bought a new cd and it's stuck in the car stereo

It's a KDC-122. It won't eject. You can hear it try to when you press the eject button. Pushing the select button won't bring up the CD player. It only goes to tuner and off.

Hi there,
If you like you can read throuh the manual for further help if this fails,
at this address :
http://www.cartoys.com/cartoy/pdfs/kdc-122s_manual.pdf

However the units have a forcible eject mode, im raking my brain for it but i think 90%  sure its as follows...
Try pressing and holding eject and the power button at the same time for about three to five seconds, the machine shoudl buzz louder then normal an do a full eject cycle for about 2 seconds,
If worse comes to worse you can take off the outer casing  four screws (if not under warranty) and carefully lift the disc slightly and slide it out. Take care to to force anything as you can damage/scratch the unit. 
Another option is that you ring the Kenwwod customer service number and ask how them what the button press combination is for forcibly ejecting cds from the unit. you may need to ask for someone in repairs there to get a knowlegable answer, 
Hope this helps 
Cheers
STeve

Cd jammed won,t eject


Hi.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while turning on the stereo at the same time. If that does not work disconnect battery terminal for one minute to reset the electrics and try again pressing eject repeatedly on startup. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed before disconnecting the battery.

If that does not work, then the unit must be disassembled. The car stereo must be removed from the dash. The unit must be disassembled removing screws at back and bottom and undoing metal casing clips. That will reveal the CD drive allowing to remove the disk.

Regards.

You need to flip the front panel down first and there will be an eject button on the inside of the panel. If this is not working try pressing the tiny reset button which is left of the ATT button.

Kenwood KDC-119 car stereo problem


There is a small hole at the bottom of the stereo face that will reset the system. I pushed a pen tip into the hole and it turned the stereo off. When I removed the pen, the system turned on and the CD ejected. Problem solved.

Cd player wont eject


You can try pressing the reset button on the display, it is a very small indented button that you need a paperclip or something smaill like that to press it. This is the only user action that can be done.

Do you hear the cd mech making any noise at all (gears trying to turn, motor running)? if not, you may have a supply voltage out for the cd mech, bad ribbon cable, defective loading motor, or one of several other possibilities.

If you hear something trying to happen, it will most likely be a jammed up mech. There is a plastic piece inside the mech that is very difficult to get to that may need to be replaced or at least re-aligned.

If you are not familiar with these type of mechs, you really should not try and fix it, you will most times cause more damage to it.

sorry there was not better news for you. let me know if resettng helps or if you feel you can fix it yourself, I would be glad to offer more help.
