several CDs stuck in 6 CD changer

Some weeks ago the 6 CD changer / player in my 2005 Honda Pilot EX stopped working. Several (4?) CDs stuck inside. None of them will play and none of them will eject either. Pressing any of the buttons on the CD player produces a flashing CD ERR message on the center console LCD display.

Is there a DIY guide explaining how to remove the 6 CD changer? Maybe then I could figure out how to extract the stuck CDs (at least one of which belongs to the library).

Any other help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Let me add that mine is a factory installed In-Dash 6 Disc CD Changer, not one of the external or under-the-seat types.

CD stuck?

Try this:

Fold a regular sheet of paper and stick one end into the CD slot 3-4" when trying to eject a CD. I don't know how it works, but I got that to work on my 6-disk changer in my Accord. The disk popped right out with the help of the paper. I guess it kinda acted like a wedge.

If that does not work, try doing the same as as you hit "Load CD" (but don't load anything, just the paper), then do it again and try to remove one of the stuck CDs.

I have been told that CDs with labels on them (burning a disk from a computer and placing a label on it) are more prone to have problems for CD changers.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Anton

I think that once you get the ERR message the unit will not even try to load or unload a CD.

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

I jammed my 05 6 disk changer just last weekend, and all I get is the ERR message on the display. The manual says to bring it back to the dealer. What I've gleaned from the net is to disconnect the battery and let the electronics reset. Gotta make sure you've got the radio code close by so you can program that in when you reconnect the battery. I'll give it a try tonight.

Just wondering what you've been able to figure out...

I have a 2007 Pilot with 6-disk changer. My CD player even does not respond to any button or show a message. It happened after the accident, I've changed the battery, entered the code, radio worked but the CD player is like not there.

Recently exact same thing happened to me on my 2008 after the accident, and the insurance co says it can not happen due to accident so it will not pay

Hoping there is some DIY fix for this. Mine acts like the CD changer doesn't exist. Switches modes from FM to FM2 to AM, but no CD. Wife tells me there's 4 CD's or so stuck in there, and at least two have sticky labels. Anybody find out how to reset this yet?

I had the same problem with the 6 CD changer being jammed with all CDs full. This had happened before and corrected itself in a couple weeks. Not happening this time. I pulled the fuse schematic on the left side of the engine and located the radio fuse. Used the puller to take out the radio fuse. Waited one minute and replaced the fuse. The changer started working and all CDs came out.
