Jammed CD Changer

Any tips for getting the disc holder out of the CD-changer?

Press the button and nothing happens - just get the message "CD Error" on the in-car display.

Did you disconnect the lead while the cd cartridge was in? I did this once and had to send the changer away to get fixed. The cd that is currently loaded may be damaged in the process. Speak to your friendly ICE shop.

Did you try to change to a different CD?
If not, try it, my cd-changer got stuck once due to a CD-R, I changed to a different CD and it ejected with no problem...
I hope it's that simple for you too!
Good luck.

If there is no CD stuck half-in-half-out:
(Don't try it if you know there is a CD
stuck half-in/out of the cartridge or
you'll snap the CD and maybe break the changer.)

You might be able to eject the cartridge
by slipping a strong laminated card under the
cartridge and tripping the catch.

This'll depend on what make of changer where
the catch is.

If you succeed, you can then empty out all the CD,
put the cartridge back in and
try and reset it again.
