Removed the 6 screws that attach the CD player to the brackets. Took out 6 smaller screws holding the 2 removable covers. Found the white plastic arm that when pushed slightly forward will eject the cartridge.
The real fun part was putting the left screws holding the bracket to the player back in. The bottom one is almost impossible to thread. Worked blind with a socket and finally got the screw started. Taking the left bracket off with the 2 nuts and bolts seemed even worse so I decided to go for the screws from the player to the bracket.
The guts of this beast looks like something made for the space shuttle.
Unless you know exactly what you are doing you could screw it up royally.
I'm good mechanically but this beast is a jig saw puzzle.
Will try it out this week and see if it hangs again.
Thanks for the assistance to all.
