My CD player stopped working in my 2003 Cadillac Deville. Whenever I load a CD it just says error?

hi Walter.
this could be a couple o things wrong here.
might need just a clean up.
  1. Confirm there is no CD in the player. ...
  2. Blow away dust with a handheld air bulb. ...
  3. Remove the lens cover. ...
  4. Select a lint-free cleaner. ...
  5. Wipe a small amount of high-strength isopropyl alcohol onto the lens. ...
  6. Let dry before replacing the cover. ...
  7. Try a lens cleaner disc.
  8. Sometimes a CD player will display a "No Disc" error. What this means is that the CD player, for some reason, does not recognize the disc. There are various reasons for this error, from the CD lens eye being dirty to a CD format that is incompatible with theplayer. Troubleshoot through process of elimination.31 Mar 2015

My 2002 RX300 constantly ejects the CD cartridge, discs properly loaded and inserted. Any ideas?

It sounds like the CD player is having a case of hiccups. I think the problem lies in the internal power circuitry. I suspect the issue has to do with the CD registration circuitry. No, this has nothing to do with whether the CD is an original or a copy. Instead, it has to do with the CD player's ability to recognize the physical disc.

When you insert a disc, the normal course of events is the servo registers or recognizes the disc as a CD and then moves the read head (the one containing the laser) into the 1:1 position so that it recognizes the first track and the first piece on the disc. Since all designs are, in general, based on the same principles, this step is either controlled by an sensor linked to a microswitch or it is controlled by a sensor that feeds positional information to an ECU (electronic control unit) within the player that compares the disc information to its programming.

If the disc is correctly positioned, the ECU tells the circuitry to start things up and tunes come out of the speakers. If it is not positioned, then the ejection circuitry fires up and the disc pops out. Here's the rub, as an oldtime poet used to say, if there's an issue with this circuitry your player should be replaced. It is possible that the positioner can be readjusted or that the positioning sensors can be realigned -- two steps that I would suggest you take next (you will need the service manual for your player for the instructions) -- otherwise you are looking at replacement of the unit.

My cd player in my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS (factory) is no longer reading my CD-R burned CD's. I have had this car since 2003 and it has never had this problem before. The CD itself is not the problem...

Grab a cleaning disc it is shaped like a regular cd but it has a row of soft bristles on the bottom side for this exact purpose. another thing I want you to try is use a different brand of writable disc and lower the burning speed. let me know if this fixes this issue.

Is not play copy cd

Your cd or the data on the cd cannot be recognized by the cd player in your car. Don't burn in .wmv/.awav/etc. formats. Burn in a universal format that plays on a standard walkman cd player or in a stereo. PC only formatted files or discs simply won't play in a car cd player.

That, or don't pirate discs ;P

Eer cd problems

Some recordable compact disc media, such as CD-R and CD-RW, may not comply with the standard CD format used in automotive CD players. When these CD's are used, customers may encounter error messages, skipping, or delaminating of the labels, which can cause an eject failure. It is important to question whether these kinds of CD media are being used. When customers encounter these symptoms, check the system with a known playable CD. Explain that the media may not be compatible with some automotive CD players. Replacing or exchanging the CD player will not address these issues.
