    Do yourself a HUGE favor if you are thinking of keeping this car. Get an aftermarket unit & changer installed. Factory head units put about 12W MAX to each of your speakers. Not only are they cheaper to replace if there is a problem, but the warranty on the radio stays with the radio - even when you swap it into another car. No expensive dealer labor costs, no parts monopolization - No headaches!

This sucks on multiple levels. If you have the 6 disk CD changer that is part of the Monsoon sound system upgrade, these radios are expensive as all hell to try and replace, not worth it. The really crappy part is that EVERYTHING is controlled through your radio; trip odometer, fuel economy, oil life, and a multitude of of other settings. If you dont mind not being able to see all that stuff, or see any warnings that may come up on the display, then by all means go for an aftermarket deck, but you will probably want to mount your factory radio in the trunk if you ever have to change a setting, or if you had to ever reset your anti theft if it ever becomes activated. The other fun part is that if you have the Monsoon system, wiring your aftermarket deck can be a pain in the *** as monsoon speakers run both a high +/- and a low +/- set of wires, that is why its very expensive to replace a monsoon speaker if you blow one as aftermarket manufacturers do not make them, and or are where you were before, spending alot of cash.

Honda CRV CD Changer Magazine in permanent eject


One of the advantages of buying a car new is the warranty and the service. Even if you are putting it in wrong it is part of the service to have them show you how to use it. There should be a section in the manual that will instruct you as well.

Read the manual and if you still can't get it to work, take it back and see what they find. The reason warranties are issued is because not everything works just because it is new.

Hope this helps

CD changer problem disable play or reject CD function


I sould checkyou phone book to see if there is a bussiness that repairs car radios and cd players.
Other wise you should look into a new cd player at a local electronic store that sells car radios and cd players. The last option is to go to the dealer and order another one.

2007 CRV AM/FM radio works fine but CD player does'nt work


Sounds like the CD changer is defective, sometimes the dealer will offer a "one time goodwill" repair when it is out of warranty for miles but not for the time period. Check with the dealer where you purchased the car.

Take it to the dealership, your G35 should have a 4 year bumper to bumper on it. They'll replace the radio under warranty most likely.

2004 acura tsx 6 cd changer jammed, stuck - removal or dash disassemble


Not sure this will work. Wondering if you could cut off your batteries and plug them back in again? It might do the reset on the CD as well since I know that the clock does get reset back to 12:00 or so.. All the best.
