I have a similar problem. My player just doesnt play anything anymore. I was not even able to eject or load any CDs. I brought it to a radio shop, and the guy was not able to fix it. He removed all the CD's and suggested me to buy a new one. I found on internet repair service Automotive Radio and Changers Repair Services :: 6 CD Changer Error Fixing and they fixed it for 199+shipping... Don't even try to repair it youself.
In both of these cases, the in-dash CD changer will probably need to be repaired or replaced due to internal mechanical damage.
Direct replacements can be purchased from the dealer - you could also replace with an aftermarket radio or a used radio from a junkyard, eBay, etc.(a reputable junkyard or eBay seller will give you a refund/replacement if the unit is DOA - look for them to advertise this fact).
If you want to have your radio repaired, there are repair shops who specialize in factory stereo equipment, such as http://www.sound-repair.com/, http://www.carradiorepairs.com/, and http://www.carstereohelp.com/, among others. I cannot vouch for any of those sites as I haven't personally dealt with them, but they look knowledgeable and professional in my opinion, and their advertised prices are much lower than a replacement from a dealer would be.
As far as radio removal - Pattyp54, if you give me year/make/model of your car I can give you instructions.
Guest with the 2004 Visteon changer - you'll need Ford radio removal tools (available at Wal-Mart and auto parts stores in the car stereo section, approximately $5). They are u-shaped with slight tapers on the ends. Insert these into the holes on the ends of the radio face (you'll want them angled as much as possible with the pin ends going outward towards the dash). Once they are inserted about 1/2-3/4" or so, pull the u-ends outward and pull the radio toward you - it may take some jiggling but should release.

Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced. Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD. Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination. Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable. Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM. Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.
For error code 6: Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!
sounds like the tray inside was misaligned when the cd went in. and it probally sent the disc into a occupied slot. you will have to remove radio and disassemble to repair. also try just unpluging radio and plug back in. sometimes it resets the radio and will start ejecting the cds
Have a 2005 Freelander and the battery died. When I re-charged the battery, the CD changer had a CD ERR 1 message. Could not eject or load a CD and the radio worked. I turned off the radio and pulled off the cover on top of the CD changer. I removed the two screws that hold the frame around the CD changer. I turned the CD back on and the CD went through a test on each CD. I know this solution might not work for everyone, but it worked for me
I just had this problem today and when I attempted to eject the CD it would give me an error message that stated (ERR 32). Apparently this means that there is something blocking the movement of the screen, a little manipulation should help the issue. Another variable could be the Eject lock feature, essentially a "child lock" for your disc. When this lock is activated it prevents the CD in the deck to be ejected. You can change this by holding down the blue source button and the eject button simultaneously for about 2 or 3 seconds. A message should appear saying "No Eject" and one that repeatedly flashes "Eject on" These two things seemed to help me alot when I had this issue. If those things don't work I would recommend calling JVC, much to my suprise they were actually really helpful. Their number is 1-800-252-5722.
We eventually tried loading another CD to fill the one vacant spot we knew was in the changer even though we'd tried that before without success. This time it seems that we fluked it just as it was trying to eject CD 1 again and - somehow - the CD we were tryng to insert must have lifted the rim of the one that was stuck and it suddenly ejected. The remaining 4 CD's that were inside the changer but not even recognised, then started re-loading so it appears that they were all jammed up together. Once they'd reloaded we were able to eject them all successfully then reload.
We're not sure but think that it may have happened when the eject button was originally pressed once to eject CD 6 then, in error, held down for a 'eject all' procedure and the changer has become confused with both instructions.
I do not know these units but I have worked on multiplay and many devices, the main reasons I found is either lubrication and or drive belts.
Over time belts stretch from decay as they age also silicon based grease I have found becomes divided between a liquid and paste with the liquid part making a puddle on a units lower area.
This causes things not to operat within a suitable time due to friction or lack of power from those belts which result in error numbers.
A good service is the only answer with a good service engineer who I am sure will enjoy cleaning out the residue slime, clean parts and relubricate. Sarcastic of me maybe but it was to make you aware that it may be costly due to time involved.
