Sounds to me like the lens assembly can't move freely all the way on the slider when reading discs. This will require you to open the cd changer unit completely to get to the lens assembly. When you get to it, check if there is anything jamming the lens from moving and the sliders, like part number labels that came unglued, screws that fell out, plastic pieces that broke, or even just leaves and branches and such. If everything is clear, then probably the sliders just need some oil and because of lack of lubrication, the lens assembly jams. Just regular sewing machine or electric motor oil will do the job quite nicely. If you don't feel like opening it yourself, you can always bring it to an electronics repair store to have it fixed. Other than that the only option would be to change the cd changer unit altogether. Hope this helps :)

How do I fix error message on radio (cd player) on a 2005 Dodge Dakota


Dead laser is not emitting light.
Thus, no light reflects from the CD back to the unit.
So, it reports "error".
Replace the CD-player.

Cd player flashes ''error'' when you put a cd in. It waa playing fine. Just stopped playing ejected cd.


try another cd wont play if too scratched or dirty. handle disc by edge, dont touch the surface of disc no matter how lightly you hold it, you will leave contaminants that cloud the surface. if none ever work try them in a house cd player still no joy, then discs aare no good, if they work in home player then car cd died, time for new one. heck who uses cd any more? its a hassle to change them (only 16 songs!), hassle to replace lost daamaged or stolen(borrowed by friends), skip or scratches, get a radio with usb reader/player or SD card reader, can be had for under $60 , an 8gb SD card for $25 (4,000 songs<do you even KNOW the names of that many songs?) PLus, without a cd slot the thieves should leave your radio alone, thinking its just a normal am/fm radio. goto www.dealextreme.com for great deals and FREE SHIPPING.

CD Player does not work. Error 03 message is


Hi,
Dirty CDs can skip or just stop playing For best results, use a CD cleaning fluid and anti-static cloths made for cleaning CDs. If these tips don't help you might have to buy another copy of your CD, but first try it in another player because some CD players are more sensitive than others to scratches.The last option is to replace the CD Head by taking to a nearest service provider.

2003 Ford Expositi CD Player will not play or eject


Does the CD door open or is it stuck open? If it is open look to see if you have a jammed CD. This happened to me and this is what I did. A CD had gotten off track and jammed the CD changer turn table. I stuck a little key in the slot and was able to pull the CD out. This fixed my problem. Hope it helps.
