CD Changer Stuck On Stupid

This morning I went to take out my CD cartridge and the damn thing wouldn't come out. I press the eject button and it makes a working noise but it won't come out. And when I try to turn my stereo to CD mode it displays that there is no CD case in the system.

Any info on the subject would be nice. Thanks.

I had this happen to mine. The problem with mine was there was a cd tray that didn't fully return to the cartridge. It was jammed in between the changer and the cartridge. Once taken apart, u can see that one of the cd trays from the cartridge was in the open position (half way in the changer).

I took the changer out of the trunk and took it apart. Using a sharp tool and a lot of force, I pushed the tray back into the cartridge and when I plugged it back in the cartridge ejected normally. If I remember correctly, I think a cd was still in the changer when I reloaded the cartridge causing a jam due to the extra cd. Maybe not... its been a few years.

In the past I've disconnected the cable and two bolts that hold the changer in place. Then I removed the entire changer, and removed the CDs.

However, that's the hard way. I've since discovered simply tapping the unit with my finger shakes it enough to release the CDs.

2002 C230- CD Changer jammed (MS3010)

I have the same problem with the MS3010 model.

After taking it apart and recovering the CD's I plug it back and try it again.

Same message.

If I press the CD cartridge button I hear a noise but the cartridge is not ejected.

The 2 red lights are ON under the optical connection and the radio works.

I have unplug and plug back the radio fuse also but and I am receiving the same messages:

- 1) CD3 track no 5
- 2) 3 seconds later: NO CD CHANGER

On some forums they recommend to take the radio out and reset the optical connection.

Can somebody help with other suggestions or with a procedure to take the radio out?
Thank you

my changer had similar problems.

i lubricated all moving parts after i took the shell of the changer to remove the cartridge. since then, it worked 99% of the time.

hey sam, have you put in any burned/copied cds? this happened to me a while back and i was told that it has something to do with the thickness of a copied disc being thicker than a regular disc and thats what can cause the jamming. The guy told me that after i get it fixed, to not use copied cd's or if i did, not to fill up the whole cd thing. hope that helps you a little bit after you get the disc changer out
