SOURCE: I have a 2006 volvo

Hi, I am a service advisor at a Volvo dealership. First thing to do is buy a cleaning disc kit, this will be a kit that comes with supplies and a disc that you will insert into the cd player. The purpose of this is to clean the disc reading lens inside of the player. I have seen disk unreadable many times. The cleaning kit I suggested is the only thing that can be attempted to fix your current cd player and the kits are inexpensive so you should try that. If that does not correct the issue then the internal fault in the player is too much to be fixed by simple cleaning. Unfortunately if that does not work the only other option is replacement of the factory player, there are no internal repairs that can be made to the Volvo players so you would have to order and have installed a new Volvo unit. If you have to replace the unit Volvo decks are expensive. You can go to a good stereo shop and have an aftermarket deck installed for a fraction of the price. If it comes down to replacing the player and you choose and aftermarket shop to install different deck, insist that they do not turn on the ignition to the car until all wires are connected. When players are being put in shops often turn the ignition on to test power supply as they work on the install. As strange as it may sound the computers that run your entertainment and information are connected to the same network as the airbag computer. If the ignition is turned on while parts of the radio are still unplugged the car will read an error on that network and you will end up with a SRS service urgent message on your dash, which only a dealership can clear out. This is all the information about the player systems. If cleaning does not work and you have to replace unit and choose to us aftermarket parts and shop just use what I've told you. If you end up with a SRS message afterwards it is the stereo shops fault and they should pay to have light reset. Hope this helps and good luck

SOURCE: radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work

Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.

A few months ago...i had a cd stuck in my 2004 malibu cd player. I was able to remove the cd with tweezers, but now when I try to put a new cd in, whatever the thing is called that grabs the cd, won't...


Turn off the car (ignition switch off), pull the fuse for the radio, start the car (ignition switch to run), and put the fuse back in. Should completely reset the radio and let you eject the CD if it doesn't automatically eject it when the radio powers up again. Even with both the radio and the car turned "off" the radio still has power running to it, and it really isn't off, but in an extremely low power "sleep" mode (it's how the clock keeps running among a few other things).

The radio fuse should be a 10 Amp blade type fuse under the panel on the right side of the center console down in the right front passenger foot well. The panel pulls off and has a fuse diagram on the inside of the panel. Recommend using a flashlight.

This 'reading text" lockup is a known issue for that radio for CDs that have a large amount of "CD-Text" on them (an extension of the audio CD standard) in addition to the audio tracks. The CD deck and radio software were designed to handle a few kilobytes, but newer CDs often have more, much more, and it overloads the radio software trying to read it as it cannot store it all, and it locks up the deck. There was a radio software update fix for this that was rolled out to dealerships when these vehicles were under warranty, but apparently your radio was never reflashed or exchanged for one with the software update. I recommend seeing a Chevy dealership and asking to talk to the service manager about getting the radio updated or exchanged with the software fix . . . and they should do this without any charge as it was a latent defect in the radio software from day one . . . don't let them tell you the deck is broken . . . the problem is deck lockup when trying to read audio CDs with large amounts of CD-text on them because of a latent software defect in the radio (that was there from the day the radio was made). Only a few music CDs seem to have this problem, but it's a huge one with audio book CDs (books on CD) that have usually have many more audio tracks and much more CD-text compared to music CDs.

If you cannot get satisfaction after visiting two or three dealers, call Chevy directly and take up the issue with them . . . and tell them there should have been a recall to fix it while the vehicle was under warranty . . . but there wasn't (I believe there is a service bulletin though).

Bose 6 cd changer factory installed will not function.


Some people with this issue have had some sucess disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes to reset the stereo. After re-connecting the battery, the stereo should reset and the error message should clear at which point the CD player should also function. Apart from this, a service call at a dealer or a car stereo repair specialist are the only alternatives. Best of luck.

CD player in a 2005 XC90 volvo


Sorry, It's not reparable. You have to change it the new one. This price is very high. If your car hasn't warranty, I suggest you, use a portable DVD-USB player with an FM trasmitter in your car. I know it isn't sounds good, but I had the same problem and I have changed the CD player to a new one (it was terrible prize, of course) and I never use CD and DVD since that time. I use mp3 -usb combo only and i haven't any problem. I hope this help.

HU 850 CD stuck in player


One thing about Volvo CD player/changers...they tend to not like burned CDs and even more, burned CDs with labels on them.

I'd suggest against trying to get it out yourself.

You can get it replaced and the dealership should have a form so you can get your CDs sent back.
