well, when the CD changer won't play or eject, then resort to playing tapes.....
now considering getting an iPod integration unit...
and researching posts for how to remove radio and dash.

seems like the changers keep breaking down
would like to retrieve CDs out of changer, too.....

update - today wife says tape player not working
so down to FM radio for sounds........
situation now critical - LOL

Just had this happen in my 98 sc300. Tape adapter I'd been using for 6 months got stuck, unlike others my radio then showed NO signs of life. Would go to zero modes, would not turn on, holding any buttons or any combination of buttons did not bring it back to life nor eject the tape. Even with the key out of the ignition, the tape deck kept playing, clicking, rolling rewinding...

Disconnecting the positive terminal of the battery for about a minute and then reconnecting it caused the deck to thankfully spit out the adapter.

The tape adapter got quite chewed up, I'll try and post pics later.

If I knew stereos I'd throw down on some aftermarket deck, but I don't know crap about installing them.

Haha I had the same issue, I bought my car with a tape stuck in the deck. I ended up using needle nose pliers and crushing the tape to get it loose and pulled it out, who cares because I'll never use a tape anyway...

Ended up being "N'SYNC Christmas" lolol

Related subject does anyone know of anyone who manufacturers an adapter to play an 8-track through my cassette player...LOL . I haven't played a cassette in that system since about 1995. Rock on cassettes.

i went with a pioneer double din,, i have my old radio in perfect working condition,, of a 2000 sc300
i also have the cd changer also perfect working condition
I'm giving it away for free to anybody who needs it

i installed a pioneer double din with a 5 channel amp and I'm very pleased with the results
sounds amazing even with the factory speakers and sub
