Using your Volvo cd player.
- Start the Volvo CD player by pressing the MODE but-ton and inserting a disc in the slot.
- If there is already a disc inserted, it will begin to play.
- If a CD is in the slot when the audio systemis in CD mode, the CD will be played auto-matically.
- To eject the CD, press the eject button.
- When the audio system volume is turned off completely, the CD player will pause and will resume playing when the volume is turned up again.

After some insight from Matt (thanks) I pulled apart my SC-816 to see if I could clean the roller that ejects the CD, my symtom was that while the CD would always eject, it would ejects slowly or “stutter” so here’s what I did:
Start by removing the 4 screws on top market with the white arrows, then pull the top off, if you need some leverage pry against the black arrow.
Then remove the next 4 screws marked with the arrows to release the cd mehanism. A magnetic head screwdriver is GREAT in this step.
You will have about 6 inches of play from the cable that connects to the Volvo CD player. Below is the best picture I could get of the roller, though it will become easily apparent when you do it what you are looking at.

Just curious if this same procedure could be used to repair my Volvo CD player. I’ve got the stock CD / Tape player in a ’99 S70 T5 (115K miles). The problem is that my Volvo CD player will never play a CD, it just spits it out automatically. I’ve read in this forum that my head unit is stuck in “reject mode” and I cannot find that post to save my life. Is there any way to reverse the reject mode setting? I’ve got the radio code, so I don’t mind trying stuff.
Any help is appreciated.

Anyone have any more info on that “CD Reject Mode?” I am having the same difficulty on my S90 Volvo cd player. I did the microswitch thing and wiped off the laser with a Q tip, but still am having the issue. If the disc is already in the player, sometimes it flashes code “EE” and then I have to eject. However, most of the time, it takes the disc in and spins it up for about 5 seconds then spits it out. I even tried resetting it overnight to no avail.
A friend of mine will sell me one for a good price, but I don’t want to buy unnecessarily if I don’t have to. Thanks for any help you can provide. This appears to be a great site!
