I researched this problem for a good while. I could not find an official list of error codes, but a buddy of mine who owns a car audio store says it means the laser is out of alignment. I also found this same explanation on the internet. Nobody talks about fixing the problem, just buying a new head unit. I would invest in a laser cleaning kit. My thinking is that any dirt or debris will will block or perhaps redirect the laser beam. Making sure the lens is clean should be tried before giving up. Best of luck to you.

I have 2001 Kia Rio the cd player read ERR when a cd is inserted and shoots it back out...why ???


Likely an issue with the internal mechanism on the player, and it will need replaced, do not try to force the CD, as it can or will break the plastic internal pieces. There are alot of aftermarket stereo shops around that may offer repair, and can do the removal of the unit.

Cd player in 2013 kia optima stopped working


This happened to me with my 2013 Kia Optima SX Turbo with the Microsoft UVO audio system. The CD continued to skip due to several scratches and the system finally gave up and would no longer read any CDs. So I selected System Factory Default from the setup menu screen and that rebooted the UVO computer and realigned the CD laser lens. Keep in mind by rebooting the UVO computer you will lose any previously stored information, but your CD player should be functional again.

Lexus 2001 is 200 6 disc stereo error 1 code shows when trying to play cds


Error 1 - "disc is dirty, damaged, or is inserted upside down"

I quote other solution comments:

I've been getting the Err 1 and Err 3 for a while now, my headunit needs replacing but I haven't had chance yet...
I've found that the cold weather makes it worse as the CDs get that cold they are covered in condensation so the CD has trouble reading them..
In my experience when you get an Err 3 it's basically knacked and needs replacing and Err 1's can sometimes be read problems - what's the disk like?
Mine has started giving Err 1's on brand new CD's (not CDRs) so she's probably having trouble focussing....
If the car is less than 5 years old the headunit should be covered under warranty (ie free).


Hope helps.

Your CD player's lens is not working, meaning either if you can open it and change the lens or install a new stereo, see which solution is cheaper.( you can find stereos for around $35) . Good Luck
