My CD player is not working and I would like to remove it and either have it repaired or replace it with a new unit. I would like to know how to remove it without having to take the entire dashboard out. Please advise. Thanking you in advance of your anticipated cooperation
One day the CD player in our 2005 Honda Odyssey just stopped playing. The radio works, but we cannot switch it to CD mode. I'd like to get it replaced or fixed. I'd also like to get all our favorite CDs out of it.

E00 is a vague error code used by Honda that indicates a problem with the CD Drive in the head unit. Unfortunately this will require removing and head unit and replacing it with either an OEM replacement or an aftermarket unit.
using a test light check the fuses in the fuse panel then check for power and ground at the socket. if one is missing remove the socket and check for power and ground at the electrical connector. if you have both the socket is bad and needs replacing. if you missing one you will have to check that wire to find were the problem is and repair it.
CD & DVD players are among the least reliable of all electronics and prohibitively expensive to repair because of the labor involved with removal and re-installation in a vehicle.Also, the transport mechanism that is causing your problem is not even likely to be available after 6 years.I highly recommend replacing with a new stereo and, if you are of faith, praying a little that the new one will last as long as the original.
I've been looking for instructions to remove the stereo in my 2005 Odyssey as well. I found these instructions that should help: http://www.collegehillshonda.com/instructions/gen3_odyssey/musiclink.pdf It is actually for adding something else to the stereo, but there are instructions for removing the stereo there. You can easily find a kit that allows you to mount a standard car stereo in the space.
