Denso navigation problem

My nav unit wont turn on. i think its the denso head unit, the dvd rom. the unit wont eject or accept a disc. this is causing my whole nav system not to work, blank nav screen so i cant control anything in my car (ac temp,radio ect...),. MY Question: could it be the power supply to the denso dvd head unit? If so where is the power unit? Is there a fuse anywhere that could be blown? PLEASE HELP

I had the same problem, and then I figured it out. I unhooked the dvd rom opened up the unit and noticed there were resistors on the board which were burned out and the inside of the housing showed slight signs of oxidation. I came to the conclusion that since the unit was mounted in the trunk the unit malfunctioned from water intrusion or moisture, which shorted out the board. Now I'm searching the web to see if I can find a Denso repair facility.

2006 cts nav disc keep ejecting


If you can play a DVD, the nav disc is dirty or worn. Try gently cleaning it with a flat screen tv cleaning solution and try again. If a DVD won't play, the read head in the player is either dirty or shot - you should have an A/V shop try to clean it, as replacing the unit is $$$$$.

Navigation CD is stuck in the unit, how can I remove the cd?


Hi Eric. I would recommend repeatedly pressing the navigation eject button about 5 times to see if the unit will respond. If not, there is a fuse in the right rear area above the battery. On the trim cover that folds down to access the battery is a fuse label. Pull the fuse for the Navigation system and leave out for 10 minutes to let the unit cool. Reinstall the fuse and try once again to eject the disc.

A8 2004 Navigation system not active


NAV unit uses a DVD disc. If its a copy, it may or may not work. I suggest you remove the NAV disc, unplug the NAV unit from power for 4-5 minutes, reconnect the NAV and try inserting the disc again to see if it reads. If it still does not read, another NAV disc needs to be inserted to verify its not a "bad" NAV DVD disc issue. If it still cannot read the second disc, the NAV unit is bad. The handbook feature needs the disc inserted in the slot 1 of the CD changer unit.

2003 Denali Navigation system working sometimes but most of the time I can hear the disc spinning but it displays "reading disc" And does not get past that. Also the CD player 6 disc will do the same...


I have run into this trouble before.

Here's my suggestion,
Take it in to your GM Dealer, there maybe a couple of options depending on what has been done so far.

If They can not get the disc out & depending on the DVD/Cd player-NAV's part no. The Dealer may be able to Update the Software allowing the disc to be ejected properly.

Or the player will need to be pulled out and sent to an autherize repair center.

Hope this helps,

Dave

Nav system


Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
