How to eject the disc tray when not connected to the car?
Is there a way of ejecting the disc tray when the unit is out of the car?
I tried to connect it to a 12v DC source - but the Eject button won't release the tray. The Reset button also doesn't do anything.

The unit is connected by small set of gears that push tray /disc out. As tray comes out it either pushes disc out of slot or pops open door (depending on which style of face you have). If you have kids I would not be surprised if something is caught in between disc and face or jamming edge of door. (know this from own experience). The face of player can usually be carefully popped off by gently prying at corners. If you get face off you may be able to see if something is stuck in unit that does not belong, or see if a piece is broken loose near face. If unit has door that opens you can try using a slim but stiff piece of plastic and keep tension on door with plastic while hitting eject button. On some units there is a small hole on face that is manual release that ejects disc - even if no power. Usually takes a long straight push in hole (straightened paper clip or dental pick) and it manually pushes gear set to go out. So many of these units are different but most do have a manual release. Check owners manual to see if it shows a picture of face and possible release hole. Have had kids fight over changing a disc and pushed in on it while it was ejecting so it stripped gears, and had kid hang on ceiling mount unit that tore screen totally off. I feel your pain....
Sounds like the disc is stuck. Look for a pinhole around the CD-Tray area, and straighten out a paperclip, and shove it straight back into the hole. This should release the tray lock and eject the disc enough that you can remove it. Once you have the disc out, try the eject button and see if it returns to normal operation (you may need to unplug and plug back in the unit)
you have to open the cd changer and you will notice that 2 or 3 disc move to the right side under the tray or on top
pusch them back into the cd magazine but don't force the unit and don't move the disc on the tray
now power it again and press eject
Once it gets too hot in your car, a stereo or the cd in it can warp.If you press the eject button and the music keeps playing the unit has an electrical problem you can't fix. If you press eject and the disc sounds, or looks like it wants to come out, you might have a warped disc. As a last resort, pull out the stereo and leave it connected. Then try to eject it. If it ejects, then the stereo could be binding.
Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.
Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly if your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button. One of these should work.
