Turn the car upside-down and shake it.

Does it have detachable face? If so, there is usually a little hole that operates the eject mechanism using a pin under the face.

If you don't have a detachable face and its a factory radio your manual may tell you how to get it out or call a local dealer.

So THAT’s what happened to my SciFiHiFi UFO Soundtrack CD. Your car stole it!

Needle nose pliers. Or hemostats. That, or a heat gun and just melt it out of there.

Ever stick a CD in the microwave? It’s pretty neat looking for a second.

I couldn’t resist being a smart-ass, sorry. What I would do is stop-by the local car stereo (installation) shop and ask one of the teenagers (preferably with the longer hair). They might know a trick or two. Slip him five or ten bucks and be on your way.

Remove a suck CD from a Car CD Player

Not Only is Satan Real, He's stuck in my Truck's CD Player

The 2nd one won't help you, but maybe it will make you laugh.

Straighten out a paper clip and poke around... then go find a big, claw hammer.

Also, if it’s a newer car, there could be some electronics in the CD player, with “smarts”. If you can, pull the power entirely from the CD player (like a hard reset) and re-apply it — you should be able to do this by pulling a fuse somewhere. If the CD is your clock/radio as well, you’ll lose all your settings, but it might make the CD player “remember” there is a CD in it.

Power cycle and retry. (Power cycle = Unhook the (-) side of the car battery for about 30 seconds and reconnect)

Get a cutting torch and use it very carefully. Keep a fire extinguisher handy of course.

Had that happen with a cassette tape. No one locally could get it out. Dealer suggested taking the dash unit out and sending it to a “center” and gave me their number. Their quote turned out to be just under the price of a salvage unit from the local auto yard. I took that option as the tape was expendable and I didn’t have to be without the unit through all the shipping/repair stretch. Good Fortune to you.

1- Disconnect car battery for 30 minutes. Maybe your CD player will “reset”
2- Is there a pinhole in the sliding (in and out) CD tray? There is in CD players for computers. You stick a bent paper clip in and hook it and pull it out

I had a CD/ stereo combo that would do that periodically. Needlenose pliers was the solution. If you move the dustcatcher stuff aside right in the center you can probably see the CD, either get them in there to grap a little piece of the CD and haul it out manually or use the blunt tip to push in further and engage the mechanism.

The CD player might be toast. If it won’t cycle when you unplug the power cable and plug it in again it might be necessary to open the case, which probably means major surgery to the dashboard, and even then it is probably toast. Sell the car.
