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.

Thanks!

    Many thanks, but I couldn't find the hole you mentioned on the right-hand side of the changer.



    If you meant the 'Reset' hole, it's on the left side of the 'Eject' button, but doesn't release the tray...



    Can you be more specific regarding the location of that hole?



    Thanks!

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

2004 Ford F150 rear entertainment system will not eject dvd, will play the dvd and will run when eject button pushed but will not eject the dvd any ideas on how to get the unit to eject the dvd?


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....

LG v181 won't eject - it tries to load even when there is no disc and won't slide out the tray at all.


It's likely a belt that drives the tray has snapped or come off! If you take the top off you might well see it!

It won't eject and makes a noise when I press the eject button


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)

Loaded a cd to upgrade firmware, firmware would not load. eject button would not eject. read manual, says to push eject at the same time you plug in the electric cord,still would not eject. Any...


Please try in this way.

Disconnect power.
Connect power back, and keep REPEATEDLY pressing the eject button while you connect. If still no ject press power on button while you keep hitting the ehect button. You need to press eject on the unit, do not use the remote.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart.

Unit will not eject CD will play fine but won't 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.

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?


hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
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.
Note:
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.
