Hello, Can you please postback with what Brand and Model CD player you're referring to here? All I see is a general question regarding "Disc 2 not ejecting". Disc 2 on what? Is this a Bose system? Please elaborate.

Thank you. So then the Disc 2, would be in the Bose Multi-disc changer I would presume.

This is caused by a processor glitch, or a hardware failure within the Bose.

There's not much on a user level you can do to fix this on your own, but here are a couple of things to try.

Disconnect the Bose from power, then remove the umbilical cable between the Changer and the Main Unit. Press and hold the Eject button for 10 seconds and release. Then re-connect the umbilical cable between the two devices.

Then, press and hold the Eject button- while plugging the system back into power. Continue to hold Eject for 15 seconds, or until you hear the Eject motor engage.

Then attempt to play a disc.

If this does not work, then the player is in need of service- more specifically the Eject mechanism in the 3 disc changer has malfunctioned. In this case you would need to contact Bose Service, as they are the only ones that repair their systems:

Is there any noise from the Eject mechanism after the reset, and when you press and hold the Eject button? Also, how long have you owned the Bose for, and when the problem occurred.
