    Thanks Ausified

    There is nothing indicating power where the cds are - the ejection button doesn't work. But i don't think it's jammed. the panel goes on and off but is haywire... it doesn't make sense - the tracks seek button goes all the way to 99... i dunno, may be the power thing u mentioned.

    Thanks anyway.

    Is there anything to show that it's getting power? if it's not opening, I would think that it's either jammed or not getting power....either would be a reason as to why it won't read the cd's

OK...I had the same sort of thing happen to the cd player in my parents echo, the player wouldn't read the cds and the seek would go up to 99, but I was able to eject them.

This is where the fun starts...I popped the player out of the car and took it apart....the laser head wasn't moving, so I put a small bit of electronic safe oil on it and manually moved it back and forth myself to spread the oil around. put the player back together, put it back in the car and it worked fine afterwards.

I don't know what to tell you thought about it not ejecting.

CD changer!! I have CD disc's in there and know it wont play them, its says disc error after awhile after I try to play all discs.


If one of the discs slipped off its tray and got jammed, you will have to take the cd changer out of the car and dislodge the jammed cd.
I had this happen a few years back and the guys at the auto parts store helped me remove it for free.

I have a RDS stereo and it won't play my cd's. It says player error


RESET YOUR PLAYER AT DEFAULT SETTINGS. SWITCH IT OFF. SWITCH IT ON AND INSERT CD. GIVE THE PLAYER TIME TO READ. DON'T PRESS ANY BUTTONS TILL IT COMPLETE IT'S READING. IT WILL PLAY THE CD.

ALSO CHECK CD'S ARE BRANDED AND NOT COPY FROM COMPUTER. FEW COMPUTER WRITE CD NOT HAVE AUTO PLAY OPTION.

IF PROBLEM NOT SOLVE PLEASE INTIMATE.

HOW DO YOU GET THE CD CHANGER TO PLAY WHEN IT IS READING ERR


I don't think the cd changer mechanism is ok if it reads err continuously or with more than a few cd's.The lens may be dirty, but in many cases it may need a new cd-changer mechanism or another cd-changer altogether.

CD Changer not reading CDs


2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix.
p.s :
1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it.
2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up.
Good luck.

Pont cd reads e20 wont play tried cleaning


Cleaning with what-a cleaning CD? If so, she's most likely toast now, sorry :o(
E20 is a read error...could be bad media (ie CD format like from your PC). Otherwise, unplug the changer and plug back in.
Good Luck

CD changer will not play reads "player error" .


Most new car-stereo's don't have an "oldschool" CD-drive, but really a CD-ROM drive; meaning that they won't (properly) read and/or play copy-protected CDs.

Most CD protections are specially designed not to work in CD-ROM drives to prevent copying. As a side-effect most of those protected CDs won't work in car-stereo's.

Try a CD without copy-protection (like an homemade audio CD using burning software on your computer) and see it that works ?

In case that doesn't work either, your car's CD-drive is probably broken ...
