CD Player

I can't get my CD out. It was an MP3 disc, it won't load, and it won't eject. I thought maybe I took it out and forgot but it still says CD IN and I can see it. How can I get this out, I can't afford taking it to the shop.

Did it say "Reading Disc" and never read it?

Also did it seem like it was TRYING to eject?

If this is covered under warranty I'll just take it to the dealer, because I broke my right hand, my primary hand, and I'm not coordinated with my left hand at all so it'd be ugly.

seems like a common occurance.....ive heard a few accounts of this happening in both gen 5's and gen 6's
im not quite too sure what the solution is, but possibly disconnecting the battery cable might reset the system and eject the cd....qont quote me on this, but it might do something

first time it happened like 2 weeks ago. i took a pair of tweezers and got the disc out. second time it happened, i just left it in overnight and hit the eject the next morning and out it came. (possibly something with the cold weather) who knows. I was getting ready to take it to the dealer.

See I tried to do that, but i can't get the tweezers to hold the cd and pull. How long did it take you to jimmy it out?

took me about 15 to 20 mins. you have to manuever it right in there and get a good hold on it. it was a cd-r so i didn't care. it looked pretty scratced up when i was done with it. Turn the whole radio off and Leave it overnight and check back in the morning and hit the eject button right away. thats what i did the second time. if that doesn't work. i guess its off to the dealer.

Angry CD won't play or eject

My 2008 Camry CD Player won't play CD or eject it. It happended after a week of purchase. The dealership questioned what kind of CDs I was playing; original or burnt. The CD is mp3 burnt. Since the vehicle comes with mp3 player they couldn't say no to replacing it. First the CD stopped playing & it wouldn't eject, then the next day it would & now the CD is stuck. It won't eject this time. No one can explain why it's been acting this way. After trying to read the CD, error 1 appears. Looks like many of us have this problem with 2008 Camrys. I am very dissapointed to have to deal with this problem after looking forward to a new vehicle. Anyway, the dealership will replace the whole CD Player/Radio unit under the warranty. I really hope the problem won't be in the new unit.

does the cd have a sticker as a cover. Sometimes that would cause the cd to get stuck into the unit.

CD won't play or eject

The CD does not have a cover. But, after 2 days being stuck & not playing, it started to work again. It has been acting this way for week. Thank you for the opinion. I am still waiting to get it replaced. It must be internal problem.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't someone mention that Toyota was together with JBL in making the CD player unable to read "burned" "illegal" copies of CDs?

Mine can read/play the so called "burned" CDs, but it randomly stops & won't eject. If the Toyota made the CD player unable to read the CDs we burn on our computers, then it shouldn't read/play them at all. I think everyone should be able to burn their favorite songs on a CD & play it. The CD Player that came with the vehicle is marked mp3 and the songs are mp3.

The stock head unit is made by Fujisu-Ten. Mine reads CD-RW discs on a regular basis, which are less reflective than even CD-R discs without any issues. As far as CD-Rs, they are slightly less reflective than pressed CDs, but modern CD players should not have issues with them. Even in 1998, when I bought my first portable CD player, I did not have any issues with CD-Rs. The only time I ever had problems with CD-Rs were with players made in the early 1990s.

I think the issue is more mechanical defect than something to do with the discs themselves.

When it comes to illegal copies of burned cd's, there is as easy way around that.

Some people have the program on their pc to do it and some dont. When you load the songs from a cd, just "rip" them and convert them into MP3 format. Then open your MP3 folder and select the songs to burn. Once you convert them to burn, no cd player in the world will be able to tell if it came from an illegal source.

You win twice!

It's takes a little bit longer to do, but for those that have had probz with their cd player, I would suggest that.

I haven't had any problems with my player so far *knock on wood*

Thank you. The CD player in my vehicle is probably defective. It's good to know that CD players in other Camrys work properly.
