The reason why the changer cartridge will not eject maybe because of the rubber in the motor of the disk that push the cd open is misaligned or loosen. You can check it if you open the cover of the disc in look in the front the black rubber that hold the rotation to push the cd outside. and you can put some lubricate oil in the side of the disk maybe they cannot open because of some dust. Clean also the lens by using of cotton bud or the cotton cloth don't put any liquid to avoid damage the len. I hope my solution is help you to solve the problem.

Hi,

The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.

If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

    As for its installation, you may connect it to the head unit’s preamp. You can have a direct cable that needs to be attached between friendly CD changer and the head unit. This way you will help your used CD changer to be equipped with the power to adjust with rest of the audio system. Not all the used CD changers work well with the OEM head units of the CDE changer control. Therefore, you should examine your product related t this function. You must ask about its disc holding capacity and frequency response.

    On the other hand, the best way is to connect the CD changer to the FM modulation. In this, your CD changer will have an outboard control unit that will receive h signals from the hanger followed by converting it to an FM radio signal.

    **** OVERALL WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TO CALL A SERVICE TECHNICIAN WHO CAN OPEN THE CD CHANGER UNIT AND GET IT CLEANED AS THE CD LENS IS NOT READING THE DISKS CAUSE IT MIGHT BE DIRTY DUE TO DUST OR THE LENS HAS GONE BAD******
