Re: CD Error 3?
Press the load button. When the CD door opens, insert a thin, flat item
(a swiss army knife nail file works well) under the edge of the CD door
in order to hold it open. Look inside with a flashlight and see if you
can see a disc in there. If you can't see the edge of a disc, take it
to the dealer. If you can see the edge of a disc, you may be able to
get it out by this method:
take another metal nail file and tape a 3" long piece of clear plastic
shipping tape onto the top of the nail file starting near the tip and
going down the length, with one edge of the tape even with the right
edge of the nail file. Trim the tape so the amount of tape sticking out
from the left edge is a bit wider than twice the width of the nail
file. Line up the nail file just to the right of the center of the disc
and with the adhesive side down, insert the tip of the nail file above
and about 2" past the front edge of the disc. Slide the swiss army
knife onto the top of the piece of tape and tamp the tape down onto the
disc. Now pull the tape and the other nail file out, hopefully pulling
the disc with it. Here's a very bad diagram of the tape/nail file
