Re: 6 disk will not eject

You are all correct......

as are many other people with 6 disk cd changers in the same boat. check out this web site i have found at least 15 others with the same problem ( round about , but all problems relate to the 6 disk cd changer.)
the 6 disk changer is not excluse part to bose.
i recommend forcebaly removing the dam thing trying not to damage it further,( savge smashing the cd changer cassette) and trying to get a new one somewhere)

really though, you should consider surgury, - > open it and obtain spare parts to repair in the usual bodging fashion. ( that is to say any way you can ) or else return to manufacturer for remanufactured or replacement units at a cost or try to find replacement units on line such as ebay.

DVD player in my home theater system won't eject the disk inside.

When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be disassembled to remove the disk.

Cd magazine stuck in unit. you can hear the motor

There should be a tiny pinhole on the drawer. Put the end of a paper clip into the hole and push lightly. This will release the cd drawer.

DVD Eject tray stuck

I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck

Disk wont eject

tough luck buddy, this system is sh!t. i'm on my second and have now got a similar problem with the second system. I eventually took a pen knife to the first unit to get the dvd out and then managed to get a rented dvd stuck in the machine a week later.
