Re: Clarion dc 625 cartridge

Yas long as all the trays are still loaded in the cart/mag then you should be able to release it with a long flat peice of stiff card. push it under the cart/mag and kinda wiggle it this should trip the catch and pop out your mag

Re: Clarion dc 625 cartridge

I had the same problem and just solved it. I had a CD jammed in the player and so it would not play and would not eject.

You have to take the entire outside protective case off. (about 10 little screws). Carefully remove the entire case metal case including the black plastic face plate. Look just where the magazine meets the player and you will see a little white tab/button. I pushed this and heard a click. I then hooked the player up to power (with putting the case back on yet) and the CD returned to the magazine. I then pushed eject and the magazine came out. I then reassembled and remounted the player, seem to work fine now.

Purchased a 1995 ford explorer with a 6 disc cd changer and it now will not eject the cd cartridge and when the cd player button in pushed a message comes up ''no dj''. have read the owner's manual and it...

If there is a cartridge in the unit, you need to take the player out. pull the housing and do a manual release. do not force it. Possible problem could be 2 discs in the same slot or 2 discs trying to enter tray, either way, if the cartridge is present, it's jammed and needs to be pulled apart. If my memory is correct the factory unit was either Alpine or Clarion. The cartridges are still available at most car audio shops. 20-30 bucks. If you don't feel comfortable pulling the unit, most custom shops can check it on the spot, and let you know if it needs to be sent out for repair. Stay away from Best Buy, etc... go to a custom shop that's been around for a while and you'll get honest service.

Clarion 635

I just fixed mine and the problem was one of the cartridge trays that holds cd's had come out and was sitting outside the cartridge and over the top of the assembly that "collects" the disc to play.

If you can easily remove the entire unit from it's mounting brackets, then I have a solution. It might sound tricky, but it's actually pretty easy.

Once you've removed the entire unit, place it on a table to work on. Remove the front plate (this is the part that has the hinged door on it to protect the cartridge and inside mechanisms) by carefully sliding a thin flat screw driver along the plastic edge where it connects to the metal box. There are several tabs that just have a friction fit holding it in place. Be gentle as to not break the top plate.

Once the front plate is removed, you'll find two very small black screws on each side of the metal box/case containing the cd player. (The top half of the case.) Once you've removed the four small screws, you can lift off the top of the metal case and expose the cartride and cd player. At this point, you'll probably see that 1 or 2 of the cartride trays has come out of the cartride and are sitting over the top of the cd player. Gently push the trays back inside the cartridge.

Once the trays are back inside, you can take the entire back over to the power card, plug it in and see if when you hit the eject button if the cartridge pops out. If it does, you're almost done.

Go ahead and slide the top half of the metal box/case onto the unit. Replace the 4 small black screws on the sides. Replace the front plate carefully. Remount the unit in it's original location. Plug it in and you're done.

Cartridge removal without power to unit

Yes but you will need to remove the cover and then if you can't get to the lever you will need to unscrew the board and rotate the motor (it's the one with the worm gear) chances are that there will be one cd in the mechanism which will make it more difficult as you will have to wind the other motor to eject the cd tray back into the magazine before you can eject the magazine
