I have a CHA 1214, and it has disc 4 stuck in the changer and I get error 1 on the head unit. it had stuck on track one of each of the first 3 discs so i kept changing to see if it was a disc problem....

Possible, however, that's not the problem. You need to pull the unit out and open the housing. Chances are you have a load error, two discs on one tray, fairly common problem. It is a self repair if your electronics friendly and take your time. Do not use force! once you've pulled the jammed disc out, plug the changer back in while it's still apart and let it cycle, should be fine. If you've got some, use "Dust off" and clean out the chassis. Do not spray on the optical pickup lens! Get a Laser lens cleaning disc that uses fluid, run it thru a couple times and you should be good to go. Hope this helps. If you need further help with this, post a comment. I did 16 years in car audio in my prior life, and can walk you thru it.

The magazine wouldn't eject which i'm told is due to a weak or dirty belt or gearing. I have a temporary solutuion for this (which is to undo the top of the frame inside the caring which releases the...

Open top cover, if the empty magazine was left inside the cd trays it can slide out into the playing area and jam the unit, check it like that anyhow. Sometimes you can see a small metal tab to release the magazine.

However Error1 means Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
And NO CD.CD error message means No CD in magazine or no magazine in CD Changer.

To fix the problem, disconnect the CD changer.
take off the top plastic slide cover,
with a small screwdriver slowly move the gearing so that the CD disc holder will move back to the load - unload position.
Pop out the CD holder.
Replace unit, reconnect the optic and power lead, switch on radio and the unit will work again.
grease the moving parts with light lubricant.

Thanks for contacting

Manual removal of cd magazine

Seems to me an error of the installers, just go back and ask them to remove the magazine properly.

CHA 1214

After you remove the outer cover, you can see a small, spring-loaded black arm under the middle of the magazine. Just lightly push it to the side, and the magazine will eject.
