I put in a CD, the CDplayer pulls the disc in as normal but for some reason does not acknowledge that it has done so. It seems as if the player has no disc in it. I hit eject button, front panel opens up but nothing comes out. I try putting in another CD.. the CDplayer accepts the second disc. The CDplayer plays the second disc with no troubles and everything is functioning perfectly. What is going on? How does my CDplayer still function with another disc already loaded in the tray? How do i get my first disc back out?

Re: Ate my CD
Looks like the tray is offline so basiclly its not reading the first disc because its far away from the eye so by putting another disc in and it reads it because the eye is close enough to read it . u may have to open the player up to get the first disc out. good luck.

These units do not have a security code like some radios. Instead, they are coded using a CD. You insert a CD into the radio and it codes to that disc. You need that same CD if you ever want to unlock the player. If you don't have it, you are SOL. Eclipse is no longer in business and they were the only ones that could reset it. The system is known as "ESN Security".
ESN Security: This unit is equipped with the Eclipse Security Network. You can register a particular music CD as a "key" device which unlocks the security. If the registered CD is not detected, the navigation and audio functions will be disabled when the main unit is disconnected from and reconnected to the vehicle's battery.
The reading of flash drives and MP3 discs vary from each manufacturer. Usually, ten folders with music in each folder will work on most. To the best of my knowledge, Clarion reads well. When all else fails, you can always just drag and drop all the MP3's without folders. I know it's not as easy "finding" songs that are in folders but seems like you can't do that anyway.
I know this is lame, but the manual ALWAYS describes HOW to make the disc (folder trees etc.)
Right next to the #6 preset button you will see a tiny hole. That is your reset button. Use the tip of an ink pen or something else as small and sturdy as an ink pen tip. Just push it in for about 2 or 3 seconds and your unit will reset back to factory default settings. Please be aware that this will also clear all the preset radio stations and the clock. So you will need to input those again.
A reset may or may not help with your disc loading problem. If you could tell me more detail about the problem I may be able to help. Do the motors run when you put a disc in to be loaded and it just doesn't take it in? When you put a disc in to be laoded, do you hear nothing, no motor running or anything? Or does the display just not move down to the proper place so you can load a disc?
There can be many reasons why a CD player won't load a disc, but the only way to have even a small chance at guessing would be with more detail. It normally takes the ability to look at a unit to determain what is causing it's failure. There is no substitute for having your eyes on it to see what it does and to check the things that need to be checked. Electronic troubleshooting is difficult at best when it is done over the internet without the unit in front of you. I hope you will be patient and bare with me while we figure out your problem, and please do not give me a bad rating without the opportunity to communicate back with you if needed.
I have over 18 years experience repairing Kenwood radios at an authorized Kenwood service center, so I don't think you could find any better help, but it may take a little work on both our parts.
Hi, toc error means that the laser is struggling to read the Table of Contents which tells the unit where all the information is on the disc, it may be something as simple as the lens needs cleaning or something as complicated as the laser needs replacing, but you could try running a cd disc cleaner through it first. Good luck......
If a car CD Player stops reading CD's, the LAST thing that will get dirt is the laser lens. For cleaning the Optical Pick-up of the CDPLAYER You'll have to disassemble it completely and clean the internal mirrors. If you don't know how to do this, or you don't have the tools, take it to a service center or you can run the risk of breaking the entire laser mechanism (it cost a lot of $$$ to replace, specially in a car CDplayer).
Ok im not to familiar about this head unit but some have a little hole where you can use a paperclip to reset it.. if you cant see one Take the negative terminal off the battery and keep it for for a minute or so...this will reset your deck and hopefully the deck will see it has a cd in it.
Another thing you can try is to push a cd in like you normally would but when it starts to suck it pull it out and then it will think it loaded...that also worked for me in the past.
I had the same problem with my KDC-M7024 CD player. All I done was put a cleaning disc into the player and let it play for 2-3minutes. The disc has a small cleaning brush on it which spins around like a normal CD would and as the bristles pass over the laser it removes any dust.After that it worked fine but i still have to run the disc through every 3-4 months or the problem persists.
