My wife put a CD in the Radio, the radio turned off, and now the entire radio does not work. I checked the car fuses to make sure it wasn't a fuse problem. How do I manually get my CD out or/and how to troubleshoot fixing the radio?

Re: CD is Stuck and Radio Does Not Work
You should also have a fuse in the back of the radio. Check that fuse as well. You should be able to eject the disk if you hook the red wire to positive on your battery and black wire to your negative on the battery.
To remove the cd manually. If you have a removable face, there should be a pin hole under the face. Remove the face and use a straight paper clip to manually eject the disk.

I assume you checked at the fuse block of the car. If the radio is aftermarket also check if it has has a fuse or maybe 2 fuses at the radio. They might be in fuseholders from the hot wires of the radio.
i would love and try to help you. ok so your having a problem with your subwoofers when you put a cd in. well try to change the output of speakers to work when you put a cd in it should be on the car radio and also you can try reseting the car radio there should be a little button to reset it. If you need more help or this does really answer youe question let me know. Thanks
that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........
Are you using the factory wires in the VW to install the stereo? You may have to re-wire the speakers and power, ground wires, etc. with new wire. In a car that old, the wires are probably in bad condition - especially where you can't see. Hope this helps...
Hi. You need to check a few things.
make sure you have power on both the red and yellow wire with the key one. If only one has power the radio will not work.
also make sure that you have a good ground connection on the black wire..
if nothing works yes you probhably have a bad radio. the dual brand radios are notorious for poor solder connections on the mainboard due to the way they build thier cheap circuit boards..
