Hi,

I have a 2008 ESV, with factory navigation, and the six disc player.

Bought the ESV new in January 2009. Used the CD player only a couple of times. Mostly listen to XM.

Put my new BoDeans CD into the player. This is a factory made CD, not a burned one. Played it a couple of times, now it will not play, nor can I eject the CD.

Any suggestions??

Alien is right, pull the Radio Fuse, then put it back in and eject the CD/DVD. Happens to me sometimes with burned DVDs, seems like the player is picky on the CD/DVD media. Rebooting the device (by pulling the fuse) is the only way to eject it.

It happened to my 2003, I disconnected the battery for 5 minutes and it ejected, make sure your sound system and HVAC are turned off before disconnecting the battery.

I saw something mentioned on the GM site about a software update to address that or a similar problem....

Re: Update: CD Player Will Not Eject

Took my '08 ESV to the dealer. They tried to reprogram the CD player with the updated software. Did not work.

The dealer ordered a replacement unit, I thought it would be just the CD player. It comes as entire unit including the navigation, radio, etc.

Replaced under warranty (whew), the whole unit was a couple of thousand dollars. Works fine now.

There is a software update to address this issue for some model years.
The radio memory has to be reset first.
I have had mixed results, some make it, some don't.

Yes it is part of the entire nav/radio which will have to be replaced if it does not recover.

I tried pulling the fuse for 10 min and putting it back but that didn't work for me. Now I can't even push the DISC button on the screen. Any other suggestions?

Try completely disconnecting the radio from the rear connections for 10 minutes or so. If that fails, your player is fried.

I'll try that tonight and let you know what happens...thx Play. You wouldn't happen to have a service manual on digits would you? Or know where the clips are located on the panel so i can access the CD changer?

This just happened on our 08 esv. While listening to a cd, it suddenly stopped working. Then we tried ejecting which didn't work and also tried loading to a different CD which didn't work. Then we tried loading a new cd into a new slot and that didn't work. We just had the unit replaced from a theft claim a few months back and our normal factory warranty is up. Any suggestions fellas?
