    Thanks for your response!!

    You could follow the below mentioned tricks if that could help you :-

    Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and, with no key in the ignition, pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio presets and other settings. Make sure you have any codes for your radio that may be required since disconnecting the battery cables can cause the radio to quit working too. This fuse trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. (Theres's a "risky" variation of this tip described in the Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems section of the guide for attempting to fix a CD changer)



    ◊ Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again).



    ◊ Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button.



    ◊ Some players, especially aftermarket ones, use a CD cartridge or magazine. Tapping on the cartridge while pressing the eject button sometimes ejects stuck discs. CarSpace member Alwaysfords2 has been able to remove stuck CD magazines by using a piece of shim stock or a hack saw blade and going alongside one of the long sides of the magazine to hit the release. You can rock the magazine a little bit in the slot to see the mechanism and it should be easy to release - sort of like using the little pin hole on a CD drive, the magazine pops up as soon as it is freed.



    ◊ Remove the faceplace from your player (be gentle; something like a butter knife often works without damaging the bezel or breaking tabs). Then look for a tiny, usually recessed little button that you can press. You may need that unbent paperclip to reach the button.



    ◊ Find a coaster in your junk drawer - by coaster, I mean an old CD that doesn't work. Or use a blank one if that's all you have. Insert the coaster about an inch into the slot (yes, on top of the stuck CD). Then turn the ignition on and hold the eject button and wiggle the CD around. Don't be hamfisted - you're just trying to give the player some traction to help it eject the stuck one. If this fails, then try slipping the edge of the coaster (or something even thinner) under the stuck CD and pry it up while pressing the eject button. Again, be gentle - you don't want to ruin the player when a pro may be able to remove the unit and free the disc for $20 or so.



    ◊ Find a Popsicle stick or something thin but rigid and tear off a few inches of Scotch Tape from that roll you keep in your junk drawer (next to all those ruined CDs you intend to make Christmas ornaments out of some day). Put the tape on the top of the stuck CD using the thin stick to help attach the tape firmly to the disk. Like the hint above, the idea is to lift the CD enough to enable the player to eject it.



    ◊ At least one CarSpace member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard!



    ◊ Foreign objects stuck into the player, or CDs that miss the slot entirely yet wind up inside the unit usually require pulling the CD player to remove the disc.



    ◊ If all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

My 2000 SL500 6 CD cartridge will not eject The player works fine but I want to put in 6 new CDs and cannot get the cartridge ejected


There probably is a CD hung up between the magazine and the player mechanism. There is no easy fix. You will have to remove and disassemble the unit to get access inside. Once everything is back in place, apply power and try to eject the magazine. Otherwise, you may get the unit reinstalled only to find the magazine is still stuck.

How can I eject stuck CDs from CD player 2006 toyota camry grande?


Isn't there a security code needed to reset the stereo after a battery change? The Stereo thinks it has been stolen. See your Manual and see your nearest Toyota dealer. Or use a tweezers to reach in and pull out the stuck CD. And clean the rollers with alcohol.

How can I eject stuck 3 CDs from CD player + GPS 2006 toyota camry grande?


there is small pinhole on the front of the player, you need to push thin stiff wire (paper clip straightened up will do) and this will mechanically release lock on the players doors, retract the doors fully and remove the dvd's.

Cd player will not eject


A common failure of magazine-type CD changers is that a CD gets stuck in transit between the magazine and the player mechanism. It may be necessary to remove the unit and disassemlbe it to solve the problem.

Cds are stuck in the default cd player of 2001 Dodge Intrepid. How do I get them out?


The first step is turning the car off. Then before turning the key back on, push and hold the Eject button then turn the ignition on. If the CD fails to eject then you can use a old CD and try to insert it into the CD Player, just as it try's to take your second CD pull it out and hit the Eject button again. This will usually get a Dodge CD player to Eject.
If this fails then the CD player must be removed and a manual eject can be performed.

The same thing happened to me when my 05 colorado was new. If you play homemade cds, that have the old paper labels, they get stuck in the player. sometimes if you take the player aprt and get the cds out it will work again. But I have seen them get ruined from this also and have to be replaced.
