While having a multi-disc DVD player in your vehicle may provide an easy way to entertain passengers on a long drive, the device may occasionally cause you problems, such as when it fails to eject discs. Unlike single-disc players, from which it is generally simple to remove stuck DVDs, multi-disc players pose a more difficult problem due to the number of discs held in the machine. In this situation, you must reset the battery on the player or use the force-eject hole to remove a DVD.

    Open the vehicle's bonnet to locate the fuse box. Consult your owner's manual for help in finding which fuse controls the vehicle's stereo system.

    Remove the fuse from the box, and keep it out for about 10 minutes.

    Replace the fuse. The multi-disc changer will eject the stuck DVD upon reset.

  1. 1

    Straighten out a paper clip to create one long, thin piece of metal.

  2. 2

    Locate the small force-eject hole near the multi-disc changer slot.

    Push the end of the straightened paper clip into the force-eject hole. The disc changer tray will pop out, allowing you to remove the stuck DVD.
