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 a Sony 6 CD in a SMAX. A CD is blocked inside. I suppose 2 CDs are on the same position. (the first).Ejecting CD is impossible. Other CD positions (2 to 6) work properly


You need to pull the unit and disassemble the unit. Pop the top with 4 or 6 phillips head screws, pull off the top and you will see the problem immediately. Gently slide the jammed disc out of the cartridge and pull out of the unit if possible. If not slide it back to the tray. Plug the unit back in with the top still off and eject the cartridge. Inspect the cartridge for warps or bends, if there are any, replace the cartridge. Hope this helps

Jammed CD & Magazine in an Alpine CHA-S634


Mine jammed after I dropped it, trying to swap it into a new car :-)
Same problem, however. Three of the six CD trays had wandered into the righthand mechanism (which selects and plays one cd at a time). Nothing else at all, most fortunately, was broken.
I removed the cover (3 screws on each side), and the small black faceplate that holds the eject button. The main faceplate came off too, needless to say; no screws, just tabs.
You have to remove the side brackets also, and the angle-adjust spring loaded pins on both sides need to be slid out. Then the body of the cd changer rotates out of its cover.
Now, you can see down into the mechanism. A CD was still stuck in the reader, along with several shifted trays. I could simply remove the CD, and with a small screwdriver, shifted the trays back over so that I could then successfully eject it. I removed and realigned the trays, which had been jammed, and it worked once more! Reassembled and reinstalled ;-)

Cd error message


Try to disconnect battery contacts and connect it back. Check also if there is an emergency opening device. In some model you have a pin hole underneath the cd tray. push a staple tip inside the hole, and this will release the cd.
If the tray still does not open, you may need to have a repairman opening your stereo at your local service point.

I just fixed mine and the problem was one of the cartridge trays that holds cd's had come out and was sitting outside the cartridge and over the top of the assembly that "collects" the disc to play.

If you can easily remove the entire unit from it's mounting brackets, then I have a solution. It might sound tricky, but it's actually pretty easy.

Once you've removed the entire unit, place it on a table to work on. Remove the front plate (this is the part that has the hinged door on it to protect the cartridge and inside mechanisms) by carefully sliding a thin flat screw driver along the plastic edge where it connects to the metal box. There are several tabs that just have a friction fit holding it in place. Be gentle as to not break the top plate.

Once the front plate is removed, you'll find two very small black screws on each side of the metal box/case containing the cd player. (The top half of the case.) Once you've removed the four small screws, you can lift off the top of the metal case and expose the cartride and cd player. At this point, you'll probably see that 1 or 2 of the cartride trays has come out of the cartride and are sitting over the top of the cd player. Gently push the trays back inside the cartridge.

Once the trays are back inside, you can take the entire back over to the power card, plug it in and see if when you hit the eject button if the cartridge pops out. If it does, you're almost done.

Go ahead and slide the top half of the metal box/case onto the unit. Replace the 4 small black screws on the sides. Replace the front plate carefully. Remount the unit in it's original location. Plug it in and you're done.

hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.
