How to I remove a cd that is stuck in the player of my 2006 Ford Focus?

Generally, you will need to remove the radio/CD player from the instrument panel. Once you have it out, you can remove the sheet metal cover on the top of the unit. With the top off, you can get your CD out.

Hi Officer, currently a CD is dropped inside the player, however it does not hinder the disc rotation and the playing but i can hear the sound of the CD when rotating disc. i am afraid one day it will...

First of all remove any disks that are in the tray and then unplug the power cord for the unit.

Use a Philips screwdriver to remove the dozen or so screws from the sides and back that hold on the top cover. There will be many other screws there as well, but try to just remove the ones securing the upper casing cover to the lower casing frame.

Once the screws are out, just remove the top casing cover and then you should have an unobstructed view of the internal components and of any disks that may have accidentally fallen inside the case.

Now just remove the offending disk and then replace the cover and the screws.

Job complete. Just plug the unit back in and enjoy that long lost CD again.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

The unit will no longer turn on. There are cd,s in the unit that I want to remove. What is the best way to go about this?

there are 6 - 8 screws that hold the top cover on the unit. Once you have those removed lift the top cover off and you should be able to access the dvd turntable you should be able to rotate the turn table to remove the various dvds. Then you can replace the top cover and holding screws and dispose of the unit as you see fit.

A cd is wedged in unit. can not remove cd changer

First press and hold Track-Up and Mode buttons at same time on unit for three seconds to reset disc player, then check if cd get release.
In some cases, performing a reset on the MCD6 may resolve your problem. First try resetting the MCD6 player by pressing the TRACK UP and POWER buttons at the same time. If that does not work, remove the plastic front cover by pulling straight out and press the RESET button below the keypad. If your MCD6 player still does not operate, please take off cover from cd player and try to manually release wedged cd in unit.
If loading gears worn out then nothing will help to fix the unit, please contact local repair shop or M&S Systems at (214).358-3 196
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have any question.

What probably happened is that some CDs fell off their tracks and are blocking the main wheelhouse from turning. To solve this you will need a philips head screw driver. First unplug the machine. You will need to remove the top of the unit (which slides off towards to the back) after removing the 9 screws (2 top, 4 side, and 3 top back). Once you slide off the cover, you will expose the wheelhouse and you should see the CDs that fell off. Simply take the cds out. Once you have taken out all the CD that came off the tracks, slide the cover back on and screw in the 9 screws. The CD player should work again. This worked for me and hopefully will work for anyone encountering this error.

How to remove the faceplate on a Cambridge CD 740 clock radio

I just did this over the weekend, so, I'll expand on how to get there.

1. Pop off the speaker covers.
2. There are 4 screws on each side (not the speaker screws, the recessed screws). Remove those from each side.
3. On the back of the unit, there are 4 more recessed screws. You'll need to remove those, and separate the back from the unit (you may have to disconnect some of the wire connectors).
4. Flip the unit over (so the bottom is up). Remove the screws from the bottom, and remove that base. Note: you'll need to remove all the foot-pads as well (there is a screw under each).
5. Once you've removed that, you'll need to then remove the next set of screws from the "sub bottom" I believe there were 8 that need to be removed.
6. Carefully flip the unit over (you can put the "base" back on without the screws so it sits right).
7. At this point, you'll need to remove the top cover. You'll have to pry away at this one a bit, but it wasn't too hard. There is a connector for the snooze/mute button that I disconnected to make it easier once the cover was open.
8. Once the top cover is off, you'll see the CD player. There are two screws holding the CD player to the faceplate. Remove those.
9. There are three screws on the back of the cd player. Remove those, and you can maneuver the CD player at that point (I didn't need to take mine all the way out, as I just needed to get a quarter out of the player).

Then... gently reassemble. This is not an easy machine to tear apart by any means. Took me about an hour and a half to do it all (but I was also doing some trial and error).

Good luck! And be careful!

Jammed CD

Remove the top cover of the head unit with a screw driver. You may also need to remove the face and the front part of the unit. Once the top is exposed showing the cd inside the mechanical parts of the cd player, try to look for a mechanical lever that holds the cd in place. Usually in the middle(ID) of the cd. You'll most like would have to lift the middle part, then slide the the cd out. Check and observe the function of the mechanical parts. And last, try not to exert to much pressure or strain on the parts, because it may not function the same way once its reassembled. It's easy.

Jeep 10 disc changer; now only error message on dash.

I had this same problem on my 2000 Jeep GC Limited. Today I decided to open it up after looking all over the net and found no help, but spend $500.00 on a new unit. I removed the unit and used canned air inside all the areas I could. I hooked it back up and was finally able to make the CD cleaner disc work. Once that was done I loaded it with 10 cd's and it is working again. I'm so happy! I saved my hubby 500 big ones.
