I Have the same unit in my 2001 Frontier, When that err3 showed i decided to open the unit myself and try to fix it. When i got it open the first thing i did is to give it a good looking over to see if there were any loose parts or disconnections. I found a small white plastic gear loose inside the unit. it took me several minutes to locate where the gear went, but i was able to put back where it belonged(the gear was for the roller that feeds the disc in and out of the unit) at the top right front corner of the unit. If you decide to try it, becareful with all the sensitive parts.
Unfortunately, after I put the gear back and got everything reinstalled, I heard the grinding noise again and received the err3 again. I removed and opened the unit again to see if the gear came off again. The answer is NO, it was right where it supposed to be. So This tells me that there is a mechanical problem. Which unfortunatley out of frustration i decided not try and figure out.
I was able to eject all 6 of my disc, this took some time, alot of time. All I did Was remove the unit and on the back bottom left corner you can see a white gear about a 1/2" wide. You can remove most of the exterior plates for easy access, but i just used a small flat head screw driver and carefully turned the gear clockwise. Like i said this will take some time.
Apparantly this is a major problem with these 6 disc in dash players.
Alpine and has a unit that will work with these systems, even with the steering wheel controls. This is the route i decided to take. i may not be able to get another 6 disk changer, but with the new alpine unit i will be able to hook up an iPod(Much more convienent. I will let ya'll know how it turns out.
One way to get a disc unstuck from a 6 disc changer is to try to hit eject while the car is off. This sometimes forces the disc to eject.
Mine is in the trunk on the far right. You slide open the door of the changer and push the eject button located on the bottom left.
Press the CD eject button !!!
According to the 2002 Lincoln Town Car Owner Guide : If it is equipped with a 6 disc CD changer , it is in the trunk
use an old cd, slide it JUST A LITTLE under the one stuck and press the eject button, they do that for some strange reason......sometimes use an old cd, slide it JUST A LITTLE under the one stuck and press the eject button, they do that for some strange reason......sometimes
You can't take it and and get it fixed The cd's are jammed...Doers it give an error code?
In your center counsole, open it up and there is a black rectangle slide, slide that back and there it is, push the eject button and out pops your 6 disc CD changer.
To remove a CD from an Alpine 6 CD changer, hit the eject button. The button is in either the top right or top left hand corner.

The CD changer is located in the trunk - back, left-hand corner. The lid lifts up from the top and pivots towards you. Slide the cover to the right and push the button to eject the cartridge.
It's because your car is a whack car. Your best choice would be to lose the piece of junk!!
I too have the same problem Brother.... Did you find any solutions ???? if so please mail me randikaratnayake @ gmail.com
Sounds like the disc mechanism is jammed...See "Related Questions" below for detailed instructions on clearing the jam
The factory installed CD changer is in the console. Open the sliding door. There is an eject button. Put 'em in, reload cartridge.
press the eject button and hold it until the CDs eject I had this problem with my 2001 Rodeo, it is the first sign of the CD changer taking a crap and breaking.AnswerThe first mentioned response worked for a while with me too. Eventually, I had to have the unit replaced. My CD changer was changed twice. I advise you, unless your unit is still under warranty, not to get another Honda disk changer. The second time mine failed, I replaced with a non Honday stereo/CD player and all is fine.
you may have dust or dirt on the lens of the CD player. This could make it have difficulty recognizing a disk
I have a 2001 MAZDA tRIBUTE WITH A FACTORY 6 DISK CD CHANGER. Can't get cds to load or eject. Radio and cassteet player work fine.

It is on the passenger side faceing the drivers side. Kind of hidden in a compartment. Slide the cover open next to the orange button. Press the button to eject.
Take it out and get a new one!!!!!
To get in to the CD changer to have to go into the boot and remove the rear drivers side panel and then there is a black box, it's on two hinges pull outwards on the top until it leans out, next slide the cover over and there will be an eject button push it and the cartridge comes out. to put it back do the same as above but backwards. - Jakey5565
If you need to know in order to get out a CD that wont eject, let me save you some time. All you have to do is pop the hood and unplug the negative connection from the battery (make sure the car is off), wait 5-10 minutes then re-plug it. This will reset the CD player and eject whatever CD is in it. This is a common problem among Nissan Pathfinders.
I have found that a lot of burnt cd's are a hair bigger in diameter and get jammed in the Ford 6 disc changer... Just remove the stereo take the cover off manually remove the disc on top then plug it back in and it should eject all the other ones unless there are more that are stuck...
If it simply doesn't play CD's, it is probably the disc reader. If it doesn't play anything but SAYS it's playing something (ie. Radio). It is probably your signal to the speakers. If nothing plays or lights up, probably just a deck gone bad.
