    My internal sat nav disk is also reading "cannot read disk" I was quoted over £1,000 to fix the problem frm a Volvo dealer. Obviously I am not going to do that as could buy independant sat nav for car if I wanted to. Anyone found a solution?

Try using a can of compressed air to blow dust out of the unit. Insert the tub into the area where the disk is normally inserted. Blow the compressed air and remove dust which may be covering the lens which reads the CD. Also, try a different "Music" CD, be sure it is not an MP3 CD.

My sat nav in my Audi 2001 A6 cant start route guidance because no satellites are detected

If it never picks up the sat signal then you have a defective GPS. Best to just replace it, the repair cost is equal to a new one.

I just installed a replacement brake booster on my 2000 Grand Cherokee,and I have no brakes. There were no leaks and I didnt remove the brake lines upon removal of the old booster. Any suggestions?

Do you mean the brake pedal goes down to the floor quite easily and you literally have no brakes?
Do you mean the brakes are there but there is no power assistance?

If, as you say the hydraulic lines haven't been disturbed and no fluid lost, I doubt the problem is hydraulic and if the pedal feel was merely spongy that is probably what you would have said rather than you have no brakes.

Are you sure your new brake servo unit was identical in every respect to the one you removed including the internal push-rod and any seals and gaskets?
If there was something that needed transferring from the original to the new unit before fitting did you remember to transfer it?

If you are confident you got everything right there should be no reason to remove the unit and start again.

Even if the unit is faulty and providing no assistance the brake pedal should feel normal as with the engine switched off.

If this is the case you need to check that the front chamber is being evacuated of air and there are no leaks. If the usual checks prove negative then you could have a faulty unit.

If you need more advice please provide a more thorough description when you return.

I have a subaru legacy b4 2001 and it keeps reading disc error when I insert a compact disc in to the player. What could be causing it?

if your cd is an original and its in good working condition.
try a cleaning kit the laser might be dirty.
after that you might need to replace the unit. I have had a few of the single disc players go bad and I found a replacement at the wrecking yard

Home Fisher 24 CD Player with AM/FM Unit reads "DISC ERROR" when CD's are correctly inserted? How do I solve this problem?

check that the cd's have the correct format for the laser reader of the machine. Blue ray cd's will not work in a infer red reader and vice -versa. If you have burnt the cd's then you may have to do it again using the correct format and not for another reading machine.

Get "DISC ERROR" when CD's are CORRECTLY inserted? How do I fix this problem?

Some players cannot read all disks burnt on computer burner drives, and others cannot read some music file formats.

However if this is happening with commercial CDs, then you will have to kiss your unit goodbye, it has failed, and is not economical to repair, with the cost of new ones.

Error #6 is the disk can not be read because it is upside down. If you are getting this error and the disk is in fact right side up you have other problems with the unit such as the Read Write Head is dirty or damaged. Possible that something got in there inserting and removing a disk. You have to remember the small size of the working components here does not require much to muck up the whole system. If this happens with all the disks you try make sure they are clean and devoid of surface damage as scratches will make it impossible to read. Remember this is an optical drive so Fingerprints and Scratches are not part of the language these things read. If it is just the same disk, get a different one. As I've had happen to me that code ended up being a trip to buy a new unit on sale with free installation as it died. But that is what the code means.
