    Gees- I have the same problem, and I think it all started when someone put one of those "black Market cd's " in my system. I'm pissed. By the way- did u ever have any luck, taking the player out yourself? Please let me know how it goes....

    I got this from somewhere else on this site, but it worked! Take another CD and try to push it into the slot that is stuck. It took me like 2 tries and the CD popped out. Before, ALL 6 slots were reading Error 3 code and nothing would come out or play. Now they all come out and play after removing the stuck one. You've got a stuck CD in there.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news... that error code means that you have a CD that's bad in the 6 disc changer.... If you're handy... you can take your radio out and manually remove the cd's and make sure that the 6 trays are aligned properly and not stuck together. (known issue) However, Lexus/Toyota does NOT repair ANY of their electrical components. They want you to pay for a NEW one at the tune of 800.00 PLUS installation... and they send the old one back to Japan and remove the CD's and mail them to you. (at no extra cost... as the service rep was telling me.. as to benefit feature me on the sale of the replacement unit.) Next be ready for the "Disc Read Error, Check Disc" on your navigation... lol.. it's a 2.10 motor that moves the lens that reads the DVD navigation CD.. and once again .. they don't replace or repair... that's a 4500.00 item plus installation.. GOTTA LOVE YOUR EXPENSIVE CAR NO? ;)

2004 lexus RX330. CD player has 6 cd's in it. Has one cd in it. Will not play or eject. Error 4


Something inside the cd player has broken and can most likely be sent off for repair but I don't know how much that would cost, but a new one can range anywhere from $500-$1,000.

Change the CD in the GPS system?


Look in the trunk, theres a panel that says navigation on it. just pull out panel and slide over the button cover. turn the car on, then hit the eject button, insert new disc and let it load all the way. just watch the nav screen for it to finish.

CD player Error 3


dear,
I have different experiance with the C.Dplayer ( error 3 ) , there is no need to remove it nor send it to the dealer ,all you have to do when you have `` Error 3 `` is to reset the C.D player , by recycling the power supply ,this can be done by disconnecting the main car battery power supply , you must also keep the battery disconnected for at least one hour . then connect the cables to the batteries ,when you start the C.D player you will hear some clicking sound ,and watch the numbers of the C.D`s in the display you will find all what is inside has been detected by the display .
and your C.D player is back to normal..

i discovered ths by chance , when I had this error in the past ,coincidently I had to replace the battery and after installing the new batteries ,i was suprised to see the player back to normal condition by its self.

Jammed cd


Remove the cd player, or have a best buy installastion center do it. The cd can only be removed with the deck out of the dash, if it's jammed that bad.
