Re: extracting the cd case without power

Try a flat bit of card or ruller. insert it under the cart/mag and wiggle it. you will need to trip the catch, its about half way accross the middle of the magthis wil onlt work if the mag is not half loaded ie the trays are not out.

Have got 2 cds stuck in vauxhall astra cd player how can i get them out

Try and tease them out through the slot using another old  CD or credit card (or similar)

If this does not work, the only other method is to extract the player from the dashboard and open it up to free the two jammed CDs.

Make sure you have the Security Code before you do this.

If you do not have the code then

2005 Hyundai Tuscon has a CD stuck in the radio and displays and error code 2

To attempt to remove the jammed CD ,try teasing it out by using an old CD through the slot.

It that fails to extract it then the player will have to be removed from the dashboard, the metal covers removed + the jammed CD released from the mechanism.

Make sure you have the Security Code before you remove the radio/player

CD magazine trapped in Ford CD changer, no power to release

They also have a website. were you can find out if its compatible and what lead you need.

Disc stuck in cd changer

there is a large gear on the top of the cd mech, turn it counterclockwise to put the cd back in the magazine. the changer will probably work after that.

My local Lincoln Dealership wanted to dismount the actual Clarion CD changer (I thought, and unfortunately reported to you, that the CD changer manufacturer was the same as the radio/cassettee unit that is installed in my dash, Alpine) from my 99 Town Car and ship the unit out for repair for a minimum of $130.00. Instead, I went to a local Radio Shack franchise who installs/repairs car electronic audio/video systems and they: dismounted the unit from the trunk; took the dismounted unit to their workbench; removed all the housing, etc. and finally were able to manually extract the fully populated 6 CD magazine stuck within the CD changer. Additional efforts (including inserting my spare magazine into the CD changer while it was on the tech's work bench) to determine exactly why the magazine would not eject while the unit was connected via the cabling to the car's power, etc. were not productive. So I now have a totally unassembled non-functioning CD changer on my hands. The "CDEJ Error" on the LED area in the dash when the eject buttoon on the CD changer is pushed.still persists. The technician said that it would be a waste of his time and my money to re-assemble the parts of the CD changer. He believes that the motor on the unit has been burned up.

So I am now checking with all the local auto parts salvage yards (we used to call them junk yards) to see if anyone has a usable Clarion CD changer for a 1999 Lincoln Town Car available that would be plug compatible with my existing Alpine factory installed Premium CD/Cassette audio system and the former factory installed trunk mounted Clarion CD changer. The Radio Shack franchise technician has already checked with the Clarion factory people and they iindicated that they no longer have my Town Car installed CD changer model available, new, used, refurbished or otherwise.

For what it's worth, here are the part numbers and other potentially important data that appear on the "cage"/sheet metal/housing that surrounds the working parts of the CD changer itself:

Assembly Part Number: F8VF-18C849-AE

Part Number (presumably the "cage"?): F8VF-18C830-AE

Date Code: 0998

Serial Number: 0201832

Mounting Orientation: Vertical

System Revision Level: 9.2

So it looks like I may have a potentially very expensive replacement of my whole audio system on my hands. I have been quite happy with my somewhat "obsolete" audio system and I have a very large collection of CDs which I migrate between my Sony 300 CD CDP-CX350 Mega Changer installed in my entertainment center, my car Cd changer and my Sony CD/Cassette player boom box in my master bedroom.

It was suggested to me that if I have to replace the radio/cd/cassette unit installed in the dash of my Town Car that I should consider a replacement model that offers a port to receive Ipod programming as a source of music.

So things have gotten somewhat complicated since the first instance of the Cd magazine not ejecting from the Clarion CD change mounted in the trunk of my car.

Maybe someone out there on your knowledge base knows where I can acquire a used Clarion model CD changer compatible with my car's setup at a reasonable price.

Blaupunkt IDC-A09 5-Disc CD

You will need to remove the set from your vehicle and remove the lid and remove the cd's manually without forcing them, you may have to do a little dismantling to get at them, then reassemble and plug the power lead back in and that usually solves the problem
