    I put in the Grom ipod interface a few weeks ago and since then my cd player doesnt play cds and wont eject the ones i had in there. So far i have tried taking out the the grom unit, holding the eject button and also disconnecting the battery and none of that worked. There is no error message, all it says is that there is no cd and if i try to load one it does nothing. They arent responding to my emails so i figured i would try asking on here.

    thanks

    I'm assuming since it isn't even recognizing that there is a CD in there, it doesn't even attempt to eject it? Meaning you can't even hear the motor turn on when you press the button?

    Sounds like it might be time for some surgery...

    it doesnt make any noise or anything. was there some kind of theft protection that came on when I disconnected it that I can fix or are the cds just stuck in there now?

    That's weird.

    I am not aware of a theft deterrent system in the actual stereo itself.

    I found what the problem was. I took the unit out, took the top cover off and wiggled the top cd around till it fell back into place. I'm happy it was only 10 minutes of work and not a couple hundred dollars for a new stereo.
