this happened to mine. Get a butter knife... and stick it under the mag and push up. It will pop out... its a sign your CD changer is about to break.. mine did 2 days after this happened.

A similar things happened to me. What happened in my case was that the cd magazine got mis-aligned in the changer so when I ejected the magazine, the cd that was in their couldn't get back into the magazine and it got jamed. I ended up having to take the changer apart in the trunk of my car and I had to push the cd back into the changer. I ruined the cd but my changer still works.

man...if i had a dollar for every time this happened to me!

i mean...i would only have like 8 dollars, but that's not the point

the point is that is a lot of times for this to be happening to my car.

each time i take the changer apart and it works fine...for a while

i don't know whats going on, but finally i had enough and i just bought me a new panasonic 9000u in dash dvd player w/7000u processing unit

that stupid changer just kept frustrating me i have know idea what was causing this problem, all i knew was what fixed it. and taking apart the changer the first time is fun, but multiple times after that is just plain tedious and aggravating.

treat yourself to a dvd player..i did.

When that happened to me, I just reset the unit by holding the eject button for ten seconds. Popped right out.
