    My CDX 656 is connected to power but will not eject the CD magazine. There is still power in the cable connecting to the CDX 656. Are there fuses in this unit?

I fixed my similar problem by applying 12v to the unit according to the pinout found here:

(note that -12v goes to the connector barrel)

There is a small fuse on the uni-link socked pcb inside the unit, it looks like a transistor but only has two legs.

6 CD Changer Jammed (Audi A4)


You may have to remove the unit and disassemble it to remove the CD that evidently is jammed inside. If your unit has a removable magazine that holds the CDs, the magazine probably is stuck.

Display read "disc error" then "no magazine"


Most likely there is a CD jammed in transit between the player mechanism and the magazine. This is a common problem. You will have to remove the unit and disassemble it sufficiently to get the CD back in the magazine and, in turn, allow the magazine to be removed.

Manual removal of cd magazine


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

Bose Lifestyle 30 6-cd changer magazine manual release?


hi, you can release the magazine by inserting a small flat head screwdriver in the slot and pushing the lever towards the back of the unit, this will release the cd but only if ther is not one stuck in the player as it will remain halfway between the mag and the cdplayer. don't force it to comae out. remember to obviously have the dorr to the player open before you try this.

Inoperable CD changer


Hi the alpine/merc/bmw cd changer all seam to suffer with the same problem, they say no disc, or no mag try firmly hitting the mag with the handle of a screw driver. the loadinga arm, tends to get stuck. you could try using some grease on the arms, and levers, white spray gease works best. but dont forget to cover the laser beforehand, you dont want grease on it :) Mark www.carradiospares.co.uk
