Unhappy with the 6 pack cd player skipping in my newly purchased brothers 2003 1200lt, I fed a cd into the single cd player and l lost the cd as well as any music!

How do I coax that cd out without disassembling down to atomic parts?

How can I restore some transparency to the digital read out screen located above the radio button control center as it saw too much sun. Lens cleaner for plastic headlights on cars? Toothpaste?

Re: Tuneless

dunno about the cd, clear the display with denatured alcohol then polish it, but it will fog up again after a while I cleaned mine and put cello tape over it lasted a long time

Re: Tuneless

Look for a very small hole on the front of the cd player. Using a straightened paperclip, push it into the hole to force the cd to eject.

I have a 6 cd player removed from my 2002 LT if you are interested. Worked perfectly when removed.
