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.

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.

Hi my problem is with the dvd tray it does not open . it make a funny noise but it does not open thx

OK I fixed it. One of the CD's had gotten stuck between trays in the loader. I pulled out a few CD's by forcing open the trays gently. However even after removing as many cd's as possible one was still stuck. 1. Remove screws holding cover plate on in back and sides. 2. Remove cover. 3. Lift face plate latches and lift over top of unit. Remove serial cables from connectors on board. Take face plate and place aside. Remove screws from back of CD tray unit and bend back metal tab with flathead screwdriver. Lift CD unit up on one side so you can get your fingers up inside underneath and push stuck cd towards tray openings. You can gently force top few trays out. You may need to shake unit so that stuck cd reaches open end. Pull out CD. 4. Replace faceplate and connect serial cables. Plug in power cord, power on unit and make sure trays will eject normally. 5. Put it all back together!

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.

Wont play disk has error code

It is a lens problem, the laser lens is either dirty or the lens pickup is faulty.

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

DVD stuck won't eject

You must unplug the unit from the wall for 1 minute (this allows the unit to reset). Then plug the unit back in but before you turn it on press and hold the eject button and then turn it on, it will eject the disk.

Disk Stuck In DVD Machine.

Hi, You need to open the machine or at least the top cover and manually extract the CD. Under the cover and on top of the loading tray is a retaining bar held by 2-4 screws. Removing these would allow you to lift the bar and remove the CD easily. In some models/version, there might be an electronic board partially covering the tray assembly. This type of problem happens when the CD is defective, was not loaded properly, or more than 1 is inside. In some cases, it is the loading mechanism that is at fault. Still in some other models/version there is an access/pin hole below the try at the faceplate where you need to insert a straightened metal paper clip to manually push out the tray. Of course the standard precautions apply, power down, remove from the mains. If you are not comfortable on do-it-yourself, maybe you should seek the services of a qualified professional. good luck and kind regards.
