The cd is stuck in the player. Pressing eject just gives a clicking/grinding noise. Checking the manual just tells me to goto my dealer. Can you suggest anything i can do? is there a manual release option?
◊ Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio and other settings. This trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. ◊ Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again). ◊ Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button. ◊ If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.

How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :
If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.
Step 1: Switch off the computer.
Step 2. On the front of the CD-ROM drive you may find a small hole called Emergency Eject hole below the tray of CD-ROM drive . Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.
Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.
Step 4: Switch on the computer and you may work as usual.
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door
if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive
tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray
pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD
drive is faulty and needs replacing.
Look on the cover on the tray near the eject button. Should be a tiny hole. Get something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it in to the hole and push firmly but carefuly. It's an emergency eject for a stuck tray.
I'm sorry that the disc tray is not ejecting. Please check whether you're able to locate a small hole under the tray opening area. If one available, please insert a pin and it will eject manually now..
disconnecting power. Connect back and then turn the DVD on by using the
button in the player (not the remote) while at the same time you keep
pressing repeatedly the eject button on the player. You will need to
keep pressing eject until the unit start loading the disk.
that does not work, then the DVD must be disassembled undoing the screws
holding the top cover in the chassis.Once disassembled there is usually
a disk stuck inside the drive or a mechanical issue. The disk tray
motor rarely fails.
Do not disassemble the player unless you have repair experience. Before proceeding check warranty status.Call Kenwood if you want to book a repair
On every CD/DVD/BluRay player there should be a VERY small pin-hole on the front of the actual tray(you may have to wipe any dust off the front in order to see the hole). If you stick a saftey pin in there you will release the lock on the tray and it will pop open. Now if the CD is really really jammed and the pinhole trick doesn't work you will have to take the drive apart to get the CD out.
I hope this helps! If not, please comment back and let us know!
After some time it was showing some C 31 00 error. I searched on internet, opened the top cover, there is the CD changer and my cd was stuck in there, I pushed the CD from finger and there it goes... on press of eject it came out... thanks anyway...
