The eject button on my CD player when pressed makes a noise, but does not open. What can be wrong? How can I fix it? I just got it from a friend, he must have had it many years unused. Thank you in advance.
Testimonial: "Thanks. I opened it. I see one belt and that one seems fine. When I pull gently the top part of the drive it opens. Do you have any ideas how to fix this? I can send a picture or a video."

Possible that the cd disc has jammed due to a change in the disc- warming can bend some cd's, also if the cd is struck inside as the loading mechanism is struck. In both cases the set must be pulled out if there is no hope with trying to retrieve the cd softly assisting while ejecting. If you do not hear any noise while the eject is pressed then the loading drive is faulty , you need to remove the cd , open to check, If this is mechanical then you can softly push the cd out, if not the electonic section needs a check.
1 Try this: While holding the SELECT button, press the ATT button for 2 secs. It will rest the player and eject the CD
2 To unlock the CDWhile pressing CD, press and hold 0 formore than 2 seconds.“EJECT”appears on the display, and the CD eject from the slot the slot
# If above does not work you have to open the cover and remove CD manually
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.
◊ Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio and other settings. This trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. ◊ Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again). ◊ Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button. ◊ If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
I have the same prob with mine right now and thats why I came here was to find the manual.
In the manual it states that that when something like this happens you need to hold two buttons for a few seconds and what it does is it resets the cpu in the deck.
I had to do it before and yes I was kind of leary of the solution also but IT WORKED!!
Now I'll have to dig before posting this otherwise I didnt just create a common solution I talked about it.
Ok while holding power/ATT press eject for more than two seconds,
and it says careful not to drop the cd~~~DAAA
Or to reset the unit: While holding SEL (select) press power/ATT
for more than two seconds and that will reset the unit to factory
And this was actually from my owners manual of which I found...
