CD cartridge stuck in Kenwood KDC C461

Hi! The cartridge is stuck in my Kenwood KDC C461 CD changer. I have removed power from the unit and removed it from my car to bring it inside. Before I screw something up, I'd like to know if you have any advice to un-stick it.

Thanks!

If for some reason you would opt for user performed action, then pls try:
1. reset, unplug from the mains for at least an hour and try again;
2. check if there is a slide switch of some sort at the rear of the unit;
3. check if there may be a pinhole somewhere along the bottom of the loading tray where a blunted point safety pin maybe inserted;
4. open the top cover and manually eject the tray;
5. check internally if there is a mechanical problem such as a slipping/cut belt, gears that do not mesh correctly;
6. if the unit has been in use for some time, it may simply need cleaning and re-application of lubricant in the mechanical assembly.

The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and , consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.

My cd doors wont open what can do.


Hi.

Try disconnecting power. Connect back and then turn the DVD on by using the button in the player (not the remote) while at the same time you keep pressing repeatedly the eject button on the player. You will need to keep pressing eject until the unit start loading the disk.

If that does not work, then the DVD must be disassembled undoing the screws holding the top cover in the chassis.Once disassembled there is usually a disk stuck inside the drive or a mechanical issue. The disk tray motor rarely fails.

Do not disassemble the player unless you have repair experience. Before proceeding check warranty status.Call Kenwood if you want to book a repair

Regards.

Ginko.

Compatible units


Hi check if your changer connects to the amplifier with a single ribbon cable. if this is the case then the unit is not compatible with anything else.
If it has its own mains cable and a couple of RCA connectors on the rear, then anything should be fine

Remove DISC010 error


If there is a disc in the changer (I guess it's in the tenth slot), try removing it, if it doesn't work by 'normal' means and you feel brave, try shaking the unit a bit. If it doesn't help or you don't feel like banging on it, you'll have to take it for a repair (they open the unit and extract the disc, they get jammed sometimes).
