Question about Pioneer CDX-P1280 12-Disc CD Changer

CDX-P1280 multi disc unit locked up

I have a unit that has locked up with disc 4 still in the machine...I am not sure how to get the disc back into the 12 disc cartridge. It is locked up. No power getting to the unit, the unit is not showing up with my reciever. I have a Pioneer DEH-P560MP Premier reciver in the dash and the CDX-P1280 unit in the trunk. I have a dodge intrepid 2000. Any thought on if this could be a fuse issue? Who do you go to for repair for these units or are they disposable? Toss it and get a new one? How do I get the CD's out?

Pioneer cdx P1280 error11

pnoman: Your code means an electrical/mechanical failure. Follow this: 1. If the cartridge is stucked try to force it out slowly with a fine screwdriver. 2. Once is out or if already out without forcing it, remove all remaining CD's. 3. Insert a laser lens CD cleaner. 4. Clean it at least 3 times. 5. The unit must be disconnected from the 12V signal to be reset it at least 5 minutes, then reconnect. 6. If problem re-appears repeat procedure once more. If problems still, your laser lens is damaged and need replacement. Probably from $40.00 to $55.00. SithPitt
