    Sounds like it's either got s disc jammed or faulty. I suspect you'll. Need to remove the unit.

    I had same problem and as suggested by Malcolm I removed and replaced fuse and it sorted itself out. Certainly worth a try.

    It's a common problem. Press the eject button and at the same time give the cartridge a sharp rap or two with the handle of a screwdriver or similar . Keep doing it and the cartridge will pop out. It's a problem with the lube in the player drying out.

    Glad it is sorted, I found like most things it pays to use it and eject cartridge often. Good excuse to change CDs! I bought two spare cartridges and am constantly changing for new CDs I buy? Search part no. on cartridge and search on eBay for a spare!
