Need to eject the 6 cd cassette from the unit, is somehow jammed

I'm not going to pay more for a "live" phone call, if you can't tell me simply how to eject the cd cassette holder from the unit soon, I'll just tear the unit apart and never buy another unit of this brand!!

Thank you for your kind understanding of automated-systems / machine-generated followups, ads & offers.

...and for allowing me time to read your post, reference the Service Manual and compose this reply.

The described symptom would be an internal hardware issue particularly of the non-corrective results of "...Unplugged the unit, re-pugged, hit the eject button..."

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach?

With the unit unplugged, carefully open the top cover to expose the mechanism.

Take and post back clear pictures of the left side assembly.

These pictures would then serve as common reference.
