I have a Harman Kardon CD Changer. I moved the unit in prepration for installation of new carpet. I failed to remove the CD's and four of five of them jamed. I could not remove the cd's by any means and turned the unit upside down and pointing the front downward. No luck. In fact the tray jammed at this point. Do not force the tray.

Be aware removing the cover might void your warranty. If this is a concern take the unit to an approved repair location.

I un-plugged the electrical power cord from the electrical outlet and removed the cover. Place the screws in a safe place and separate them by size rembering where they came from. Be careful and do not touch any of the components inside the unit with your hands, fingers or any tool. Some comonents in electrical units can hold an electrical charge even after the unit has been turned off and unpluged from electrical outlets. Whether you unit holds an electical charge is unknown to me. Wear rubber soul shoes.

With the cover off, I saw the CD's were jammed together in the CD player (?). I sucessfully removed the CD's. Replaced the cover and screws and the unit worked.

Good luck. If you are not up to this ask a friend with mechanical abilities to do it for you.

Hi,
Try this. look to see if theres a small hole at the front of the draw, where you can push a needle or small screwdriver in ?
If not, you can unplug the unit. insert a flat-bladed blunt knife into the top of the draw, and hopefully re-seat the disk, which will be enough for you to eject it, that way.
Option 3 is to take the case lid Off ( this will void any warranty usually ) and remove the disk from inside.

Cds play but won't eject


Hi.

Try pressing eject repeatedly while you power up the unit. Procedure described here: When a disk is stuck inside the player ..

If that does not work, then the cover must be removed to take out the disk. This must be done with power off. Even if operation is quite simple, there is chance to damage the unit.

My clarion CD player in my Nissan Primera P12 2004 will not eject the discs can this be rectified and would it be expensive.


Hi.


Check first that it is not a single disk stuck inside.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while at the same time you start the stereo.

If that does not work you can try disconnecting the car battery to reset the unit, and then attempt again the procedure above.

Remember that you may be asked stereo code after disconnecting battery, have it ready.

If still no luck, then the unit must be removed from the dash to be taken apart, so to remove the stuck disk.

In that case the repair may require replacement of CD drive unit or front panel. When disk does not exject repair done from a local technician may be expensive. Usually better replacing the whole stereo unit.

Regards.

PS: Here the procedure above illustrated in detail. The procedure is described for home DVD players, but it is the same on any optical unit, including in-dash stereo. Naturally , since the unit is an in-car system, you do not have power cord, but you will need to disconnect battery to reset the system: player system won't eject disk.

Dvd is stuck inside and drawer will not open


Yes, it was a piece of the addhesive dot that was stuck to the back of the disk. I unplugged the unit (of course), removed the 10 screws holding the cover on the chassis and that exposed the disk in its tray. I could not manually open the tray still, but I was able to remove the tape dot from the disk while it was still in its tray. All is well now.

Cd is stuck inside the player. I moved the unit when decorating and now the unit will not play any cds and there is one stuck inside. I removed the casing to look inside but got scared off when I saw all...


It is safe (except for the lead solder) as long as the unit is not powered ON.
There is a "pin hole" on the front of the CD tray.
With power OFF, use a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) to push the mechanical eject button inside the pin hole. Carefully use enough force to push the CD tray out.

CD STUCK IN CD PLAYER


The case needs unscrewing to reveal more of the internals. Go carefully and peer inside wherever you can to fiddle the CD back into place or out of the box. It's in there somewhere, removing panels will get there.

Nakamichi MB-70 CD player - cannot get cd to eject


Having just removed three discs from an identical unit which also jammed, I will say how easy that was. I do not know if the unit will now function when reinstalled in the vehicle.

Remove the unit from its mounts, remove the outer "frame" (if fitted), remove the two #2 phillips pan head screws from the sides holding the face to the chassis, remove the four #0 phillips screws (black, flat head) from the top and bottom of the face plate.

Slide the face plate off and carefully handle it while tethered by its ribbon wire.

Turing the unit upside down, peer into the opening and observe the disc, gently press the carriage away from the top of the unit (now the bottom, as it is inverted) and allow the disc to be freed, simply pull the disc out.

If there are multiple discs stuck inside, oberve the large metal gear just inside, carefully rotate the gear to actuate the loading mechanism as needed to release addtional discs.

Curtis DVD player - Stuck in Load Mode so won't open - dvd inside - correctly seated - but may not be compatible. I just burned it & was testing it.) Have tried the paper clip in the tray release...


Do the following

Unplug power cord.
Wait two minutes and plug it back.
Keep repeatedly pressing the eject button while you start the unit, before it starts reading cd inside. Do this a couple of times.
If you cannot eject the disk in this way you will need to take unit apart.
Unit won't start until the disk is inside, as it tries to read the disk , disk is faulty and unit get stuck.

Cds are stuck


Hello ph1l1p, You are going to have to open up the unit and manually remove the disks from the carriage which I believe is loaded in a linear fashion. Once the disk are removed see if the unitr powers up and test the functionality of the CD changer. The stuck CDs may be the problem, but if they are not, check the power supply starting from the fuse. If you do not have a background in electronics please take the unit to a shop for repairs. Thank you, Shuttle83
