I just purchased my first Mastercraft this weekend. It is a 2004 X7. One issue that the seller neglected to tell me is that there is a Eagles CD stuck inside the CD player. I like the Eagles but I feel like I would like to play other CDs also lol. Has anyone else had this issue?

You can try disconnecting your battery for a few minutes and power it back up. If it won't eject the CD you will have to do it the old fashion way.

I was informed this weekend that CD player in my son's car had a credit card stuck in it. I didn't even want to know how or why. Pulled the CD player, removed the cover and pulled the credit card out.

Make a mini artificial reef out of that crappy clarion.

Looks like I may have to take it apart. If I continue to have issues with the CD player does anyone have any recommendations of what to replace it with?
Thanks!

Hold Down The Eject Button: If the disc won't eject when you press the eject button, try holding it down for much longer than it would seem is necessary. Sometimes, for various reasons, the machine just isn't communicating properly with itself, and holding down the eject button for a few minutes could solve this. Another trick that many people have tried with some success is to hold down the button for a few minutes, and then release and press it again quickly. Using this maneuver, you may trick the system into ejecting the CD.

Look For An Emergency Release Switch: Many car stereo systems have a small button inside of a thin hole or groove that acts as an emergency release switch. If yours is one of these, the solution may be as simple as taking the sharp end of a safety pin or the tip of an extended mechanical pencil and pressing the button.

Pick Up The Pliers: As a last resort, you could remove the face plate and pull out the CD manually with needle nose pliers. This is generally not good for your system, or the CD for that matter, but sometimes, once the stuck disc is removed, if you reinsert it everything will run fine.

In many cases, you can solve the problem with these simple steps, but make sure not to do anything silly that could cause permanent damage. If these measures don't work, the problem may be either faulty wiring or a broken part inside of your system. Either way, it may be necessary to take it in and get it looked at. After all, considering how much you paid for your system, what's a few more bucks to get it running again?

Thanks! Ill give that a try this weekend!, I talked with Clarion on the phone today and tech support seemed to think it may be from some sort of corrosion but I find that hard to believe if the CD player is inside the glove compartment.
Anyways thanks again!

Unless the seller also forgot to tell you that the boat has been under water before. Water could get in there any of a million ways.
