I just bought a 2004 HONDA ACCORD EX V4 2.4 lt. It has a six CD changer. The radio unit works fine but I am not able to load a CD into the CD player. The manual says hols the "LOAD" button when the display says load CD, load it. I have tied many times but the LOAD CD does not show up on the display neither it takes the CD.

is there power to the cd changer possible fuse is the head unit connected to the changer check wiring is there a jamed cd in changer try disconnecting battery and reattach to reset unit if all this fails the unit is goosed
The same thing happened to me. Supposedly you can't put burn cd in that radio. So I need to get it fix or get a new one. I took out the radio fuse out waited about a minute, then put it back on. Now it works just fine but the only problem is that I won't be able to change the CDs that r in it. I'm stuck with the same six until I could get it fix but for now ill deal with it.
Before connecting any cables you must set the dip switch box to the position listed for
your vehicle. If you set the dip-switches after you have connected cables to the box,
you must disconnect and reconnect them for the changer to operate.
All 1992-2004 Honda's are compatible with the Neo Changer except the 2003 and
2004 Honda Accord and all Honda Element vehicles. Some radio models require
pressing "Seek >" once to start playing after changing CD or after startup.
The radios display will not show the proper disc number after disc six. You can use
all 10 discs in the magazine, but the readout will be wrong. This is not a technical
problem; the car stereo was designed for no more than six discs.
*Due to the direct access disc system, you will not be able to directly access
discs 7-10. To access these discs you will have to go to the last track on disc 6
and let it play until it loads disc #7. ( you can fast forward the track, but you
must let it play the last 5 seconds of the track, for it to change to disc # 7
Switch to the Neo Changer by pressing the "CD" button.
To change discs press "Disc -" and "Disc +"
To change tracks simply press "Seek <" or "Seek >"

Lighting of the lcd ? Could be an internal radio component. Check the web - seems to be fairly common with the radio ( made by Panasonic) where there is a small resistor that gets fried and results in the loss of the lighting . The CD changer also has problems.. I should know.. It happened to my 03 Accord also.. You can get a remanufactured unit on ebay for < $100 . Also, there are online tutorials on how to remove the radio. Good luck
This is the Radio Anti Theft feature which is activated whenever there is a complete power loss to the radio (as in when it is stolen out of the car).A Honda Tech or ASE Certified Auto Tech would have plugged in a Memory Minder into the OBDII slot to not only prevent this, but also protect the Main ECM from resetting which could create drivability issue.
If the Honda is now registered in your name, take it to your local Honda Dealer.They should be able to pull the Radio Serial number without removing it like in the older Hondas, simply a matter of pushing the right buttons. With the Radio Serial Number, Your Proof of Ownership (Registration) and a Photo ID that matches it, either the Parts Department Or Service should be able to give you a Radio Code for it.
As for the CD ERR codes, the CD player probably is broken and will need to be sent out by Honda to a outside facility to be repaired.That will probably run between $250 to $350, plus the labor cost to remove it and reinstall it.
If you just bought this Honda, or any vehicle, I always strongly recommend having a Manufacture Dealership do at least a oil change on it and check what other services may be due, you might also discover it has Recalls that have yet to be completed that they can take care of for you. Catch the little problems before they ruin that Great Deal you just got buying it.
Strongly suggest you also join Hondas “OwnersLink”, you can find it on the Honda web site under Owners Resources links.In the future you can use this to recover your Radio code after you’ve been registered for awhile. Also keeps you notified of Recalls, Service Issues and even sends out Discount coupons (Latest is a $119 trunk cargo trays for $39, that is a Fantastic Deal).
I have a crv also. the audio system has an anti-theft mechanism, to deter thieves from stealing your cd player/radio. you need a code to turn your unit back on, usually a four or five digit code, that should have been provided when you bought the vehicle. If you don't have it, the unit will come back on after, and only after a full, uninterupted hour of driving.
