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..
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.
The stereos CD player has broken twice nice. First time was under warranty. Second time it is not and is still broken.
I WAS PUTTING IN CD INTO UNIT IT GOT STUCK AND I WAS ABLE TO GET OUT NOW IT WONT DO ANYTHING IT FLASHES A PIC OF CD AND SOUNDS LIKE ITS CHANGING CDS
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.
