One day when i went to change the cd in my car it stopped workind and said "er 2". It wont play any of the six cds I know are in the player, nor will it eject any of them. I know there are cds in there because I was in the middle of listening to one when I tried to change the cd and it stopped working. please help
The clarion 6 disk changers Suzuki used to use are notorious for doing that, mines starting to get flakey also. The others people are right there is nothing you can do to fix it. In fact I’ve heard horror stories about the dealers destroying customers CD’s trying to get them out. That’s probably why Suzuki got away from using clarion changers. If you don’t care about the CD’s that are stuck in the unit then pitch it in the trash and buy one of the Suzuki single disk mp3 players off eBay. Otherwise find a good electronics repair place and cross your fingers!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

• The disc icon on the radio will not illuminate.
• The radio displays an "INITIALIZING" message for approximately 30 seconds after vehicle start up.
Important: Do not attempt to play CDs with paper labels on them in this

Technicians are to reprogram the radio with new operating software using the following procedure:

before the radio is reprogrammed. Remove and reinstall the radio fuse to

radio does not allow the CD(s) to be removed, the radio may have another
failure that will not be corrected by the reprogramming procedure that
follows. Refer to the Diagnostic Starting Point - Entertainment
procedure in SI to begin your diagnosis of this failure to eject CDs
concern before reprogramming the radio.
2. Reprogram the radio using the Service Programming System (SPS) with

and the Radio Programming and Set procedure in SI for more information.
As always make sure your Tech 2® is updated with the latest software
3. Verify proper operation of the radio and make sure that all CDs can be ejected.
First get a CD Lens Cleaner and try it; if not, disconnect the negative lead from your car battery for about 10 min. BUT! Unless you have the radio code make sure you car radio doesn’t have a anti-theft system; if after this few steps still nothing you have to send it to an electronics repair shop (the CD Lens is bad).
From everything I've heard, this is a very common problem and can be costly to have repaired. One forum I found had this posting...maybe it will work for you.
"This is what I did to my In-Dash 6 disc CD Player.
Rather that toss the radio like most are saying to do you can try this first.
Pull the radio out and remove the screw on each side and the 2 on the back. Pop off the cover and you can see the CD's. The part of the CD changer may have not fully engaged the CD it wanted to play and it is stuck not knowing what to do. Press on the CD that so that the part that spins the CD is locked into the center of the CD. Leave the top open and plug in the CD player. It should start going through all of the cd's then if the CD error is gone it will play again."
its a very common problem with g35 in dash clarion cd changer head units. a small plastic gear gets worn or brakes and wont eject or change cds. you need a new one, should be covered under your warranty.
I had the same problem. It is probably the laser reader for the CD player. I took it in to the dealer and was referred to a vender as the warranty had expired. I took it the vender 10 days ago and just had it re-installed today. Works well. BTW, the dealer took it out and send it to another company which repaired it and sent it back.
