Default 2003 LS430 CD player problems

Greetings, I am new at this so please be patient with me.
I have been unable to eject CD's from my Mark Levinson 6 disc player and am getting a "disc error" message. The first disc I tried to eject came out fine, then the error came up. Can anyone help?

Welcome to the club...unfortunately-for you-your very first post had to be on a negative---stuck cd.

I used the SEARCH funtion at the top of the page and found several solutions from other members that could benefit you. The 1st link below would obviously be easier as the 2nd involves taking the unit out from the dash...

Good luck!

Turn your stereo off. disconnect you battery for 3 to 5 minutes. Reconnect your battery, open your cd door, turn on your stereo and press the arrow button on the left to empty the changer. This is much easier then taking the cd changer out. I have done this 3 separate times on LS 400 and LS 430. It works feel free to contact me if you need help.

Love this thread! Saved my bacon when wifey's 02 LS430 Mark Levinson swallowed a CD, choked on it and wouldn't spit it back out. Disconnected battery, waited 10 min, reconnected, pressed eject and, as they say in France, Et voila! - out came the CD!

BTW - if you REALLY do need to remove the whole head unit, check out this link:

I had this happen over the summer. I read on another Lexus forum that you can use an index card with a piece of double sided tape to pull the jammed disc out. It got my stuck CD out.
