Slot Machine? Piggy Bank?

Help!!! Seriously, I need some help. Tot decided to use the car DVD player as a slot machine. Or piggy bank. Tater showed him how to open the ash tray... which in my car is full of change. Tot then proceeded to see how many coins he would put in the DVD player before Mom noticed. I don't know if it is 2 or more coins. But no matter... I need a way to get them out. The little turd.

Any ideas?

No. I have the name of a radio repairman down in west palm. I paid 40 bucks to have 27 cents removed from my radio.

There may be a guy closer... check the yellow pages.

Other then picking the car up and shaking it hoping the coins come out or removing the radio and trying the same thing, the only thing I can tell you is take it to a car audio specialist.

Agree, all you can do is take it to a specialist...

I have no wisdom to offer,but I would like to thank you for something new to look out for.

too bad the coins aren't magnetic... take it to a place that does this kind of thing and keep tot away in future :)

Oh noooooooo! I have no idea how you would get them out yourself. I'll be thinking about it though. (Contagion's idea is good if superman lives in your neighborhood....)

LOL! This is right up there with my nephew putting a pb&j sandwich in the VCR.

I used to do car audio.
You're screwed.

To paraphrase some old Letterman joke: "So I put a pancake in the CD player, and for one brief moment, I swear I heard Aunt Jemima singing."

I've got some ideas but doubt they will work. Chewing gum on a popsicle stick to pick up the coins might really fix you up, huh?

IF I was there, I could fix it for you :-(

If you know anyone that knows the slightest about car audio...they should be able to easily do it.
