CD player won't work. Wont play CD that is in the player and just makes clicking noises when you try to eject the disc. CD appears stuck. Also noticed from date of purchase that the dash above my cd player always appears unusually warm and so do CD's that were removed from player. Always worried about the unit overheating and causing a fire.
The CD would not work after replacing the positive battery terminal. The vehicle was without power for about 2 hours while I went to pick up a new terminal. The radio works fine but the CD that has 6 discs inside says no disc, will not empty or the green load light will not light. It was working fine up to the short power outage.
I have to continually Help the CD insertion .. in order for 'reading CD' operation..
I push it in with a credit card.. immediately after it is take in by CD player.. immediately..
CD Player does not eject or play CDs. Tries to read the discs but does not respond.
my cd player stopped playing it doesn't read it then kicks it out . it started to do it at 40,000mi.
My CD player will not automatically pull in the CDs or eject them. If I use a pair of tweezers, with tape over the tips to prevent scratches, I can push the CD in far enough that it will play. I also have to use the tweezers to remove the CD.
rejects cd after trying to read with no success. It is still not working.
The cd portion will not accept the cd. Keeps ejecting it.
The stereos CD player has broken twice nice. First time was under warranty. Second time it is not and is still broken.
Try's to read cd and won't eject It
Cd stuck in disc player & won't eject or play
CD player o/c Will not play or eject disc.
Not fixable. Need new player. Still has CD stuck inside
cd player won't play at all. won't take cd's or extract cd's
CD will no longer load, just started today
I bought the car used and I had to get my radio replaced 4 times before GM was able to finally fix the problem. And even then the CD player takes a good 5 minutes to decide to start working.
CD player won't play and won't eject the CD - just makes a weird noise when trying to do so. I was able to get the CD out by sliding another CD slightly under it (about 1/4 of the way in) while pushing the eject button. Then like a dipwad I tried it again it - and same thing happened ..... was able to get that one out too - hate not having a CD player - sounds like a lot of people got subpar players! Actually, I remember my player skipping years ago - probably about 35,000 miles.
keeps cd inside - won't play or eject
CD player will not play or eject- it will try to read but that is all.
my CD player does not pull the cd in and if i push it in far enough it won't eject it. it just won't work.
