If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.
Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.
Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
good luck :-)

In my 2005 Ford 500, I get the same thing part of the time. I have a six CD player. The CD player does not recognize a legitimate CD. My solution has been to eject and re-insert. If the CD player does not recognize that I put a CD in and will not eject, I simply tell it I want to load in that position and it will eject. Short of replacing the unit, I do not have a repair solution. You may want to try a cleaning disc. I did but still have the problem but less often.
There is a small pinhole in the face of the dvd drive. Use a paperclip
to poke into the hole. It will force an eject of the dvd drive. You can
also explore the computer, right mouse click on the drive letter of the
dvd drive, choose "eject".... If it still will not eject, unplug the
ribbon cable from the drive but keep the power plugged in, then press
the eject button. If worse comes to worse, four small screws, and you
can remove the shell of the drive exposing the dvd inside.... Good
luck!!!! -------------------please vote 4 thumbs up 4
Switch off the computer.
Then restart it holding down the mouse click. Keep holding it down until the CD pops out.
If that doesn't work turn the computer off again then restart it and immediately hold down the CD eject button. Keep holding until the CD comes out.
If that doesn't work, take it to a service cenre.
Hi GInette, sorry to hear you are having problems,
here is how you eject a disk that is stuck in the optical drive of a Mac.
Shut down the Mac.
press the power on button
VERY QUICKLY, press the mouse button, the trackpad button and hold it down firmly until the disk ejects.
This is a built-in hardware command independent of your system and always works when doe right, unless the optical drive is no longer recognized by the Mac or if something is inhibiting it's ejection.
