Dear,
I have different experiance with the C.Dplayer ( error 3 ) , there is no need to remove it nor send it to the dealer ,all you have to do when you have `` Error 3 `` is to reset the C.D player , by recycling the power supply ,this can be done by disconnecting the main car battery power supply , you must also keep the battery disconnected for at least one hour . then connect the cables to the batteries ,when you start the C.D player you will hear some clicking sound ,and watch the numbers of the C.D`s in the display you will find all what is inside has been detected by the display .
and your C.D player is back to normal..

i discovered ths by chance , when I had this error in the past ,coincidently I had to replace the battery and after installing the new batteries ,i was suprised to see the player back to normal condition by its self.

    This was so, so, helpful... Thanks so much! Alternatively, other sites had offered suggestions and step by step procedure to take apart the dash etc, etc. All I did was disconnect the terminals and left it overnight, reconnected in the morning and by the time I got into the car, the CD was sticking out!!!!

    I tried this twice. Once with the battery disconnected for 2 hours and once for overnight with no results. Any other suggesions?

It can be fixed, if you take it to a dealer they will take it out and ship it out to be repaired. or you can take it to your local stereo auto installers and they can fix it most of the time. some have a small reset button located inside the door where you load the cartrage.

2004 lexus RX330. CD player has 6 cd's in it. Has one cd in it. Will not play or eject. Error 4


Something inside the cd player has broken and can most likely be sent off for repair but I don't know how much that would cost, but a new one can range anywhere from $500-$1,000.

Cd error


I hate to be the bearer of bad news... that error code means that you have a CD that's bad in the 6 disc changer.... If you're handy... you can take your radio out and manually remove the cd's and make sure that the 6 trays are aligned properly and not stuck together. (known issue) However, Lexus/Toyota does NOT repair ANY of their electrical components. They want you to pay for a NEW one at the tune of 800.00 PLUS installation... and they send the old one back to Japan and remove the CD's and mail them to you. (at no extra cost... as the service rep was telling me.. as to benefit feature me on the sale of the replacement unit.) Next be ready for the "Disc Read Error, Check Disc" on your navigation... lol.. it's a 2.10 motor that moves the lens that reads the DVD navigation CD.. and once again .. they don't replace or repair... that's a 4500.00 item plus installation.. GOTTA LOVE YOUR EXPENSIVE CAR NO? ;)
