I just did it - removed the radio unit, unscrewed the top metal cover (small screws), opened it, and was able to see the stuck disk - removed via eject button with hand assist. It will not solve the problem but will prevent the CD changer motor running aimlessly and annoying me.

SOURCE: All 6 CD's are stuck inside of the CD player. When

Have you contacted the dealer? That problem is covered under your bumper to bumper warranty which is 4 years or 60,000 miles whichever comes first. 4 years from the original date of purchase. If you are not the original owner and do not know the purchase date, you can call your nearest dealer and give them your VIN number and ask for the in-service date. However if your vehicle has over 60k then it doesn't matter anyway. On that vehicle the radio/cd changer unit probably has a broken or worn gear that loads, shuffles and ejects the cds. Unfortunately if you are out of warranty, you'll either have to find a radio shop that specializes in factory head units, or have it replaced at the dealer. That is all you are going to be able to do. But definitely check the warranty situation right away, because knowing when your warranty expires is very valuable.

SOURCE: CD player is not working.

I would first try removing the fuse to the radio/cd player, see if that resets the system and get the cd out.

Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: cd stuck in stereo

Turn the radio off, disconnect the battery for 2min then reconnect the battery. the radio should reset it self for you to eject the CD and just reprogram the time and radio presets. Note you must make sure the radio is off when battery is disconnected or your going to be prompt to enter a radio code to have it work again. Good luck and keep me posted, if this does not work, then your CD player motor has gone bad and your going to have to replace the radio.

SOURCE: The CD player/changer in my car is not loading or

I just acquired the same problem. I tried to put a new CD in and it wouldn't take it. I ended up pushing it in when I was trying to get it back out and now it won't play the CD, or eject it. I think it could be stuck between tracks, but they want $188 to look at it and fix it even if it is a simple fix. I am looking for suggestions also, Diane

2004 lexus RX330. CD player has 6 cd's in it. Has one cd in it. Will not play or eject. Error 4

Something inside the cd player has broken and can most likely be sent off for repair but I don't know how much that would cost, but a new one can range anywhere from $500-$1,000.

2006 Lexus IS250- I have a six disc changer and the cd's are stuck. Will not eject them and they have moved them into other spots so the radio shows it only haveing 3 but there are 6 cd's in the changer....

It is a internal CD Changer Problem, there is no way to get them out unless you dissassemble the Changer. Your best bet is to remove the Changer and take it into a Car Audio Repair Shop and have them take a look at it.

Jammed cds in my RX 330

I also have a 2005 Lexus RX 330. Hold down the eject button with the car on. When you completly turn off the car the cd's should eject. You may have to do this a few times before it works. I also had this same problem with my 2003 Honda Accord. I clean the cd player regularly but I have found that it does not always eliminate the cd errors. I purchased a cassette adapter for my I pod for $12.99 and have been happy and error free ever since! Good Luck

I inserted a brand new original CD in my RX330 and it got stuck and get ERROR 3. The CD will not eject.

I would say there is a mechanical problem with the cd pack. you need to replace/repair to audio unit

6 disc CD changer is stuck

This happened to me a few years ago. It wouldn't eject the CD for a year. I literally smacked the side of the dash where the cd player is located and it came out the next time I pressed eject. I found that same solution in a couple of forums. I had to do it a few times. I think the CD just has to allign with something to eject properly.
