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.

usually if the cd player goes you cannot repair them your self unless you know some where that repair them they dont last forever if you got to scrap yard the owner should be able to test it for you or give a few days warranty incase it doesent work could also try conecting straight to your car before paying for it or connecting it to another battery and putting an old disk in it me personally replace it with a better system they dont cost that mutch these days and can get an mp3 player can get all 6 disks on 1 disk so dont need the multi disk thing
1. Turn radio off. With key off, press the pwr and eject buttons and hold for 7 seconds.
2. No go? Then try the same with the key on.
3. Nothing? With the radio on try to 'bump' the stuck CD with another CD. Careful not to scratch one of em'
4. Still stuck? Look around on the radio for a small hole that looks like a pin or paperclip might fit in. We're looking for a reset button, but not all radio's have one. If you do locate it press and hold for like 10 seconds. Or look in the owners manual if the radio has a reset button
5. Really? Go to the fuse box near drivers door dash and pull the fuse for the radio for a minute or two. Check the owners manual for the location, and if there's more than one radio fuse.
Hope one of these work. Last effort would be to try to extract the CD carefully with tweezers,but good luck with that
Same thing happens to my wifes Tucson. If you put in a CD it turns the radio on. We have had to do this a couple times now and it works every time. Of course if there is a CD in there it won't work....as a result we make sure to always eject the CD before turning the car off. There was a recall with the brake control switch as well the radiop in the 06' are a known lemon however the unit has a reduced warranty which does not match the bumper to bumper warranty. Also the air bag sensor is a recall (I believe). The daytime headlights will stay on sometimes too for some reason which is what drains our battery, Good luck!
The only thing that is left for you to do is to remove the stereo and then disassemble it and remove it yourself. A little daunting but needs to be done. Sounds like it went in wrong and then became jammed
Had the same problem, but after I pulled the radio and then re-installed. Turned out there was a single wire that is separate from the rst of the harness that had come off the back of the radio. It attaches on one of the ground tabs. Would also explain why some aftermarket radio won't work. I don't know what that wire does and why it needs a ground on the back of the radio to make the speakers work - especially since the unit is already grounded, but the radio works again and my wife is happy whic, of cource, means everyone is happy.
Had the same problem with my '03 330xi. Navigation worked fine but radio and CD did not work at all. I opened the fuse box located in the glove compartment to check the three fuses associated with the navigation system and radio. #7, #39, and #41. All three fuses were intact so I put them back in. I then put the key into the ignition, turned it to position 2 and miraculously the radio came to life. I guess it acted as some type of reset?
