Toyota MR2 cd player keeps ejecting CD's

I regularly read of other similar problems but have not seen a solution yet..
The unit is old (1991 ish),the radio part of the double DIN unit works well.
Every time a CD is inserted it remains for a few seconds and then ejects
Does anybody know if this is an alignment problem or a component failure?
I have dismantled the unit (very carefully) cleaned the laser lens (very carefully) and put the unit back together with no change in performance.
I realise I can buy an alternative cheaply but I really don't like being beaten
Anybody recognise this failure mechanism????

    Same problem here in a 2000 Camry 6-disk cd player. I put the cd in and within a couple seconds it ejects without error. Are there any guides in how to take apart this stereo?

Send it to me and I can fix, just a case of a dam good clean of the lens and reflective prisums inside the laser chassis (requiers a lot of skill to take laser lens / coil assembly off and put back on) and then a Oscilloscope to set the laser back up using little adjusment pots and away she goes again, just dirt and component tollerences change over the years. this applies to the matsushita made Toyoat CD-X3000, 74209 and a couple others that are found in Toyota Supra, MR2, Celica, Estima of the age 1991 - 1997 ish.

CD wont eject


This is a common problem with units that utilize a belt torque transfer system- the belt gets old and stretches. It can also be a defective eject button as has been seen in Broadcast Denon units I have had to repair.
There could be other reasons but these are the two that I recall. If you hear a motor running and no action it is probably the belt type.

Cd mixer deck repeatedly ejecting cd


It may be a mechanical or optical detection of the disc being inserted.
The unit need to be seen by a Technician to determine what is wrong with the unit. Lens cleaning is not the first action I would take to resolve this.

2007 toyota camry cd player reading error 1


I had the error code no. 1 in my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has the CD radio unit with JBL system. It will not eject the CD, or play it. I removed the entire radio/CD unit and replaced it with a used excellent unit bought off of ebay for $100, and the replacement works fine. However the replacement is also 7 years old. Therefore I would not be surprised if it failed again. Prior to the error 1 I had intermittent error 3 codes, which had the same effect: no playing of the CD, unable to eject, and unable to insert other CDs. Sometimes the error codes would go away, and the function would be normal. But once it started, I think it was on a downhill path. A new replacement is nearly $2000. Used are about $100 to $200 or more depending on the seller and condition of the unit. Youtube has videos on how to replace the unit which only requires simple tools: it is not difficult but takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If you do it you have to put the car in gear to move the gear shift gate, which requires the car to be on, so you should have the parking brake on for safety. One alternative is to send your unit to a repair company but that might cost more than simply replacing the unit. Good luck!

Dvd in in player and won't eject. screen reads "loading".


Try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in after a couple of minutes, if cd still won't come out you can unplug the unit and manually remove the cd by taking the outer casing off.

Cd ejects


New CDs may have some rough spots around the inner and outer edges. If such a CD is used, this unit may reject the CD. To remove these rough spots, rub the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.
