On my 2002 xterra 6 Disk player.
It locked up on me.

I was able to fix it with key in the off position. I pulled the Radio fuse and put in back in.
The fuses are located under the hood on the left side right behind the battery.

Then I turned on the key and the radio. The CD began working just fine.

Drop down face plate, there should be a little tiny hole that you can stick a paper clip in to eject the cd.

    drop the face plate and see if there are any tiny buttons, press them, should be a reset button. the other solution was to get your cd back. sometimes when they get stuck, you have to get them out before it will work again. good luck

This is classic failure (like a number of Nissan problems) that is due to a poorly designed take up screw (whatever that is, right?) design in the 6 CD mechanism of these (Clarion) changers. There are a number of stereos around this year (Infiniti too since they are made by Nissan) that have the same issue for the same reason.

After researching this, I located the needed parts and repaired my unit (not for the faint of heart, this is somewhat akin to cuckoo clock repair, a very complicated electro-mechanical device). I am an electrical engineer by trade with over 35 years of experience of working on electronics.

In any case (and here is the bottom line), I would be happy to repair anyones ailing changer ("err2" with clicking/chugging) for $100 plus $10 return shipping to the lower 48. Contact me at rentwist ( at ) comcast.net if interested.

Regards,

Bob

2005 pt cruiser cd player rejects cd and shows err


Either it's a bad CD (format, or scratches), or you have a faulty CD Player. If the CD player is bad, it is likely much cheaper to just buy a new one, than to fix the factory one.

HI lisasmith566 IT is not a fuse problem .
the problem is your the CD part of the radio
must likely the cd is stock or more likely the cd drive motor is defective .
FIRST try pushing eject on radio and see CD comes out if not you need a new radio .

Lexus 2001 is 200 6 disc stereo error 1 code shows when trying to play cds


Error 1 - "disc is dirty, damaged, or is inserted upside down"

I quote other solution comments:

I've been getting the Err 1 and Err 3 for a while now, my headunit needs replacing but I haven't had chance yet...
I've found that the cold weather makes it worse as the CDs get that cold they are covered in condensation so the CD has trouble reading them..
In my experience when you get an Err 3 it's basically knacked and needs replacing and Err 1's can sometimes be read problems - what's the disk like?
Mine has started giving Err 1's on brand new CD's (not CDRs) so she's probably having trouble focussing....
If the car is less than 5 years old the headunit should be covered under warranty (ie free).


Hope helps.

Cd player shows "err" when attempting to play cd


Remove the fuse to your radio or disconnect the battery for 1 min, once reconnected. This should reset the radio again, if it does not reset the radio. Your going to have get your radio re-booted at the dealer if it's a soft wear issue and if it's a mechanical issue. The Tech2 scanner will indicate that when trying to re boot the radio.
Thank you for using fixya.

Cd stack in cd player,screen shows err


My CD Player did the same. It showed an "ERR" message when trying to detect the beginning of a CD. I thought that the CD was dirty and wiped it down. Then I discovered that the player would detect the CD when the car was idle, but not when the car was in motion. Maybe the laser is THAT sensitive. Hope this works for you.

Cd player comes up with err message


Oh, i had this problem several times... look, the best answer that i can give you is to buy a new one, there's sony's cd-players that are great, me and my father have. now, if you want to stay with this cd player just insert the cd several times until it will play. but again, you better buy a different one.
