Help! I need somebody! Slot loading player has disc stuck

Greetings form across the pond. I have an Audiolab 6000cdt transport that will not eject the disc. I have attempted various safe ways which have not worked. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m trying to avoid sending this unit out but being in my semi-remote location, that might be my only option. I have contacted IAG (Audiolab Parent company) and still waiting for a reply (5 days now). Thanks for looking! (and helping)…
Cheers

Hmmm… I would think that there would be a small pinhole (on the front near the drive) in which to insert a paperclip and then force eject the disc but It does not look like that has one…I looked through the manual as I am sure you did and it does not show any clues not can I find any info anywhere… Calling tech support might be the only way… They may even be able to show you over the phone or chat… Sorry that you are having this issue, It is a really nice transport though.

Thank you Jetman for your kind response. I will make a call tomorrow and hope too get through. I love the transport, I remember when I was deciding to go with this (or a top loader), I was a little apprehensive with the slot loading. But, I’m sure it will work out, well, pretty sure…Thanks again!

Cheers

I’d say, you just take the lid off. There is not a lot going on in there, so gaining access to the CD-drive is easy.

Unless they did something super exotic, this part here should lift up

releasing the CD.

Thank you MazeFrame for that encouraging info. That is the same transport? Looks like it. So, on the cd” cartridge/box-part swill just pop open from the top? I hope is is easy for me as experienced I’m not. That will be an option for sure and I thank you for your help.

I have decided to take a shot at it, I am now lolling for the correct tool to removing the 500 screws on the bottom and sides. I believe they are the Torx variety, I have one, a little too small though and its a T5. I hope its the T and not the P type, the screws are small and somewhat difficult to see any differences…If anyone knows the type of driver/tool I need for the Audiolab 6000cdt, that would be excellent. Thanks again MazeFrame for your advice…
Cheers

Hey MazeFrame, just finished (two days of and on for me) and got that disc out of there. The pics helped a bunch but when I got to the disc-reader, I tried and tried to open it up. Seemed there was no way to open it up. I ended up detaching the unit from the wall of the player. with cables still connected and got ahold of the disc eight a pair pf tweezers. Wow, it actually worked (after I reset the eject disc and then placed another in and tested a few times). If anyone reads this, I have given the hopeless hope as this was to me) a major undertaking. Anyway, to sum it up, Thank you an the Forum for making you available for this task. Enjoy the Music, (I can again now…).
Best
