Introduction

If the CD drive is malfunctioning, or perhaps a CD is stuck and won't come out with a simple hard reset, you may need to replace/disassemble the KDC-BT565U in order to get the unit in proper working condition.

Note: this requires the KDC-BT565U to be separated from the car. If the unit is currently in an automobile, it needs to be unmounted. This may require specialist assistance.
