The makita impact drivers are picky about the bit that you use. if you use a single sided bit you have to make sure the distance between the channel and the end is 9mm (3/8) and if you're using a double sided bit you have to make sure the distance from tip to channel is 12mm (15/32)

try using a 1/4" wrench on the bit in reverse while pulling the collar back. if that doesnt work, tap the tip of the bit with a hammer with the collar pulled back

SOURCE: bit stuck in quick release

My friend just had a problem where the shaft of a socket adapter broke off inside the the driver. Taking the spring assembly out didn't help as it was wedged so he used a screw/bolt extractor (ez out style thing). Drill a 5/32 hole in the broken piece, pound in the extractor and wiggle it back and forth to get it out. Beats buying a new chuck, or whatever that end piece is called on these drivers...

Screw driver bit stuck in chuck of impact driver.

a tough one If can't get hold of it you may be screwed LOL
getting that rammed in the chuck is very hard to get out even if can get a grip unfortunately you can't beat it out you would do more damage And no lubricate is going to help because it was tightened down. Hope someone can help you in this otherwise may have to replace the drill

Go to the Makita home page, http://www.makitatools.com/en-us/Modules/Home/Default.aspx, and put your model number in the search box to find their page on your tool. On the left side of the page will be the parts breakdown and owner's manual for view or download if they are still available.

The screw point got stuck inside of the makita

Low quality steel drill bits get stuck in the Makita because the hammer impact squashes the metal, forming a ridge that gets snagged on the anvil's steel ball bearing. Use only impact drill bits.

I have a drill bit stuck in the head. I put the bit straight in and now its stuck. Is there anyway to take it out?

Grab the drill head as hard as you can put the drill on drill setting and the highest number setting and put it reverse

Someone stuck a conventional driver bit into the impact driver and it is stuck tight.

VERY GENTLY. . . . use a flat tip screw driver to try to push the collar forward so that it will release the bit. You may need to gently hold the handle of the impacter in a table vice or something like that to steady the tool, then push forward on the collar with a screwdriver and use a pair of pliers to pull outward on the bit at the same time.

Or instead of a screwdriver try vicegrips that are adjusted loose enough to just lock but not squeeze when closed. Pliers that grip too tightly may bend the collar and keep it from being able to slide forward to release bits.

Bought 2 no BTD142 impact drivers from Makita USA got drop down transformer they just start to charge then tones for broken battery are heard and stop charging, transformer new, batteries new have i done...

these newer chargers do make a tone that can be changed. when the batterys are initially inserted they will make a sound and then when they are fully charged they will make another usually longer sound. you can change it by removing the battery with 5 seconds and reinserting until you find the sound that you like.. I would look at the charging lights before deciding the charger or battery are bad.

Bit stuck in Bosch PS20 keyless chuck

These units have only been out for a short while and most are on warranty. Take it to a Bosch Service center in your area and they will replace the front of the unit. Unfortunatly this is a problem with this type of unit. The bit will deform slightly from the impacting action and lock itself in the chuck.

Bit stuck in quick release chuck - makita btd142

What has happened is the hex part of the bit has twisted slightly making it hard to remove. What I would do if you are comfortable with partial disassembly is remove the quick release mechanish. There is a split ring that comes off first and then a washer and spring, next remove the outer collar and SMALL steel ball from side of chuck. I take a pick (dental tool) and push up or try and twist the stuck bit. Sometimes it takes while but usually this works. Let me know if I can try and help further.
