CD is stuck!

ok, so i tried to put in a cd into my Mach 460 system this morning, and i sucked in it a bit but it gave me "CD Error" on the display... i cant reach the cd with pliers, but i can still see the edge of the cd through the opening.. What can i do to get that CD OUT!?!? Thanks.

Ive tried auto ejecting all cds but it just gives me the cd error message.

Hey buddy, it is very simple to remove a stuck cd. Just get the cd to eject. Stick a cd up from the cd that is stuck and push down. As you push down move it around and it will come out. Don't use pliers. I used pliers and it messed up my cd. Good Luck.

take another cd and push the stuck one all the way back then try and eject it if it doesn't come out right away do the process again this time when you hit eject take another cd and push down or up on it wiggle it around so it catches the rollers in there. it happens to mine all the time.

It happens to mine al the time. Just use another cd to push on the stuck cd as a couple of others suggested. It always seems to work for me. Also, I'm not sure if this caused the problem, but ever put a cd that has a home-made label on it. The glue gets into the player and causes cds to stick.

This happened to me 2 days ago and has happened in the past. It usually happens when the temp get into the high 80s and above. All I do is what everyone here has suggested, I press load cd and take another cd to push the stuck cd back in. It may take a couple of tries but it usually goes back in for me. Once the car seems to be a bit cooled off with air conditioning, the cd then comes out without problem. Something must be expanding (cd, inside, who knows?) to cause the cds to get stuck.

If pushing another cd against it doesn't work push the eject button and hold then hit the side of the player it will suck in the cd and spit it out always works for me.

on a added note it would be cheaper for you to turn your car into a Saleen then it would to buy a Saleen.....they start out as V6's.

Smile Kinder, gentler pliers . . .

Try this: Take two credit cards, slide one in just above the stuck CD; slide the other in just below the stuck CD; spring the ends apart using the leverage gained thereby to gently squeeze the stuck CD and then, pull gently on the credit cards. (CAREFUL NOT TO SHOVE THEM IN TOO FAR!!!). It always has worked for me.

No pounding. No pliers.

Be gentle.

Alternative: Take it to an autosound shop? Or even (shudder . . .) a dealer?

Much luck and, again, be gentle.
