Not at all actually if you just wanna give it some time and play around with it, I was not gonna lose out on the $100 I spent on my Audiophile after a CD was stuck in it so I took of the top popped the CD out then I left the top off while I plugged the whole system back in then I watched as the Trays to run through the usual cycle..while doing this I noticed a piece was not grabbing in one spot and put it back in place which in turn fixed that damn problem. I'm sure this would not work for all but I have not had a problem since then.

HOW DO YOU GET IT OUT?!!

Some have randomly pushed buttons and sweared at it in just the right way, but when all else fails and you just have to get that Raffi CD , this is what has to be done.

First, go down to WallyWorld and hit their automotive department. You are gonna want a set of these. They only cost like 4 bucks:
What is pictured under this quote, it won't show on my PC at work, can someone help me out, Thnx

I am going to go to the Dealership today and have the 3RD radio put in the car. The dealership is blaming it on burnt CDs now but my question is why is it acting up now 5 years of playing burnt cds. I don't care if they have to send the Cds back to me as they are copys of the origials that I still have..

Putting in the Alpine you have the sub working how about the steering wheel controls... does anyone have this working?

Try using a laminated card like an old Blockbuster video membership card or something equivalent. As you press the number of the disk you want to unload, hit the eject button and slide the laminated card in and out, sweeping side-to-side to fish the disk out. Do this while the CD player is making noise while trying to spit the disk out. This may take several tries but it does work.
