Only way I know to do this is take the player to a Ford dealer, they will send it to be rebuilt and the co. will return the CD's to you when they take yours apart. Unless you pry/break it open.

Try electrical reset. Pull the owner's manual out & look up fuse box chart to identify one(s) that affect your radio/cd changer. Once identified, pull out the fuse(s) and reinsert. I have 2002 SportTrac. CD changer would not play or eject - just constant "cd error" msg. Turned key to ACC setting & turned on radio. Opened fuse box & pulled both relevant fuses. Radio quit. Turned key fully off & then re-inserted both fuses. Turned key back to ACC, turned on unit & then ejected all 6 cds that had been stuck inside for 3 months. Didn't even lose radio presets.

I followed CDDuster's advice and the CD reset itself and is playing again. I found only one fuse- #12 5 amp fuse in my 2002 Ford Escape. Thanks for the help! August 7, 2012 NRCalifornia

I have the same problem going on with my 2002 Escape.It sounds like everybody has the same radio 6 disk, will i'am going to give it a try. If that doesn't work, i'am going to put. A 6" DVD in dash TV that has everything that. Some of the new Escape's have, i'am even going to put an flip down TV I believe it's a 12 inch TV it even has built-in dome lights in it.

OK so I'm having the same exact problem except the fuse thing is not working any other ideas?

it depends on the type of cd you use. when i use any other CD than the original one it gets stuck.

I located the fuse and pulled it, turned ignition off waited 15 minutes , put fuse in and nothing changed.
