You're going to have to take this one to the dealer. It may require a stereo replacement. Eject Error sounds like the ejection mechanism is not working. Most car companies will exchange your stereo if it is still under warranty and when the old one is sent back, will take the CDs out when it is rebuilt and send them back to you.

Thanks it is still under warranty and after 3 days the cd came out by chance.

by any chance is the cd that is stuck a burned cd? I have the same problem with my 2002 factory 6 disc changer. My solution will sound somewhat, well, improvised, but i keep in my cupholder an old plastic gift card (I've also used a bobby pin, but i recommend the gift card, it doesnt scratch the cds) and as soon as i hit eject and the little slot opens, i use the gift card to coax the cd out. If i fail to coax the cd out, it gets stuck and i get the same error message.

I'm having the same problem. I think I have a burned cd in my 6 disc changer. So, using a give car will take the cd out? would a $50 give card work? or have to be more money in it? lol. Seriously did that work?
