Open the eject door and at the lower right side of the cartridge their should be a small indent that looks like you could poke it with a medium point pen. That's a reset for the changer. If that does not work, you will need to remove the changer from the car, pull off the top, plug the cable back in and hit eject. look for the arm on the backside of the cartridge and give it a nudge. It may just be stuck. Loading mechanisms usually do not fail before the optics or other!. If you need further help, post a comment with any model #'s on the changer and I'll look for info and help some more. Hope this helps.

I just left the Lexus dealership w/ my ES 330 (my changer reads "Error 3" upon starting my car, it also makes a loud ticking noise); go figure, the mechanic/technician there informed me that I need another motor for my disk changer - Merry Christmas and hello $675!
After turning your car off for about an hour or so, the cd player is supposed to reset itself enabling you to retrieve your cd's. Attribute this to having utilized burned cd's.

I just fixed my 2005 RX330 CD changer jam, and saved $800-1000. It was easy, if you first spend $6 at:
Here you will find pics and instructions on how to remove the stereo/changer. Mine was a Pioneer, and the stereo came out in 5 minutes. I could not find instructions how to take it apart, so I experimented a little. The secret was to take the top lid off the changer - 9 little screws, and a piece of black tape. Under the lid, I found my problem - a CD had been inserted too soon (the WAIT sign actually means what it says!), and I just lifted it off the top plate. Under the plate I could see 2 more CDs, in the 6 slot holder, but they seemed to be free and not jammed. So without reassembling the stereo, I plugged it back in. The changer cycled, I hit eject twice to get the other CDs out, and all is well.
