Re: 2002 Acura 3.5RL CD Changer Problem
Have you checked fuses and wiring to the componant, if it is an add on there may be an inline fuse to the changer itself located on the red wire on the back or from the fuse panel, so that it is double protected, one of the fuses may be burnt. If not most likely it is a wiring problem between the changer and the fuse panel.

I don't think the cd changer mechanism is ok if it reads err continuously or with more than a few cd's.The lens may be dirty, but in many cases it may need a new cd-changer mechanism or another cd-changer altogether.
You can try to get it repaired, but a used unit will be cheaper and probably live longer.
The unit is modular in that the radio and cd changer are two separate units. A ribbon cable and some screws connect them. If you are able to get just the changer part of the same year (TL/CL) it will work.
Clocks are independent if they are housed outside of the radio unit.
You need to replace the cd changer. This is very common on these vehicles. The best place to get the changer is the dealership. I have seen them fit aftermarket changers in there but can not give any advise on that.
The most common problem with all CD players is the loading/un-loading mechanism, there is nothing u can do to fix it except have it repaired by an authorized Honda/Acura electronics repair station, this is not the dealer, call dealer parts for a name and number of the closest repair center and send it out yourself, if you go through the dealer they will 2X the bill to u.
you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 min. to reset the system. If that dosent work then you will need to send the radio into a repair shop to have them manually remove the cd and repair the changer. (the changers are very fragle and break inside) you can send it directly to alpine to be repaired.their number is 1-800-421-2284 ex 860304
