Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix

Error 3 code from CD player, won't even take the CD

I have a stock CD player not a CD changer, just standard player, which I've never had an issue with. It plays anything, normal CD's, burned CD containing MP3's, etc. I burned a CD a few days ago, and it immediately ejects it reading Error 3. The CD will play anywhere else, just not in my car. I put in another burned CD, same exact brand, burned on the same computer, from the same source of audio files, plays no problem. I have since tried 3 different CD's granted all the same brand, same thing. I ran an audio diagnostic test, and granted I was running off other Toyota instructions as I couldn't find ones for the Matrix, and it comes up with a CHEC code. I clear it, it says GOOD. I try again, same error. I run the test again, CHEC again. If anyone can offer ANY help, I'd appreciate it. I can live without the CD although I'd rather not, but now it's more of a mystery as to what is going on! Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: CD changer problem disable play or reject CD function

I had the same problem with my Toyota Camry LE 07 with 6 CD -changer JBL Bluetooth. Player didn't load or eject any CD, however everything else was working. I checked the warranty for my stereo and found that it has only 36K miles or three years warranty.
First I tried my own research how to fix that problem on internet and then stereo shops. Finally, I went to one of the stereo shop and asked him to check what is wrong, and it going to cost me $45 and not guaranteed anything will be fixed.
People like me who does not know anything about car electronics should avoid opening radio and stereo by them self it requires little skill to open if you don't want to break things.
Anyhow, this guy open the whole system and found that a bad CD label on top of it stuck and broke the part of CD changer. He did not if that can be fixed or it might coast at least $600.
Result, I bought the iPOD and hooked up with AUX.
You may buy extended warranty, which could have been help.

Maoooo!

you may have to use needle nose pliers to pull them out or remove the radio and open it up and remove them also take a look at the drive belt it may have broke, there are many electrionic places that will repair it if you remove it and take it to them, most of the one i run into broke a belt or 2cds were jamed inside it.

Cd player error


so is this a stock RAD/cd?
stock JBL 6 disk player in dash>? or? what? name and model #
mp3 and wma format. but not DVD
or
JBL premium 4-disc in-dash CD changer
io the single disc player, 3 kinds sold. new.

and now comes the big question.
TELLS where you got the disk, or name it, or tell how it was made if home made. we dont know that.

is said CD a CDDA? or not. (always try CDDA first)
is CD a real music disc. from a real store, CDDA, is that.
or CDR, or DVDr, or CDRW, or other record-able media
is music MP3? files.
see, the old units dont play modern media.

try 2 real discs, not scratched.
do they play?
one other way, is to name the radio, brand, like JBL then get the
p/n off it. (hard) then look up the product data sheet on it,
bingo, what it can and can not do is there.

but this does it all, mostly
does what yours will not do.

Stock CD Player won't turn on.


Hi Jesse,

Since you have done this numerous times, so you know the installation process. It seems there's something wrong with the aftermarket CD player, try replacing it with another one.

CD WILL NOT LOAD SAYS NO DISC IN PLAYER


You listed this in the auto section, so I'm not sure just where you have the problem. When you receive an error like this and you've tried several disks with the same result it means your CD player is bad and must be replaced.

I HAVE A 2002 MUSTANG GT. THE CD PLAYER IS MESSING UP AND HAS BEEN FOR A WHILE NOW. IT KEEPS TELLING ME CD ERROR AS SOON AS IT IS STARTED. IF I PUSH THE LOAD BUTTON IT TELLS ME ALL THE SLOTS ARE FULL, BUT...


Sound like the cd player itself has the issue. It will have a small sensor in the player to tell the user if all the slots are full with cd's or not. thats either gummed up or blocked from doing its proper job. as far as the cd error goes, thats your laser. If its still the stock 6 disc cd changer, its a good time for you to concider changing out that cd deck.
good luck bro

When i try cd it keeps writing error.and reject every cd plates i insert.it was playing normal 2days ago.pls what do i do when error notice appear.the car is honda 2003 model coupe.thanx


Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement...
First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry.
FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.

Hi what does Error 03 mean?


My endeavor has done this error 3 a couple of times and the cd changer basically shuts off all lights and won't do anything. Someone on another solution page said to slide a credit card back and forth in the cd opening to fix the problem. I've done this both times and it has made the changer play again as if nothing had happened : )

2007 nissan maxima will not load or eject CD's...or even play the


Hi, this is a common issue within car CD changers. the load motor go through lots of trauma during the life span that i usually 3 to 5 years. the load motor operates everything in the changer. it works the load tray and spinning of the disc as well. when this motor is out, the changer will be rendered useless. replacing the load motor will fix this issue or, you can just purchase a new changer and save a lot of money.

Getting E-1 error message for radio


Well I had a 1990 Xj6 with an aftermarket cd-changer in the trunk and it didn't work, so when I took it to an audio specialist he said that it needed to be replaced. But what he did say is that most manufactures use the same connection cables for their products, ex. Sony plugs will work on all Sony cd-changers. I now have a 1994 Jaguar XJ6 and I have the same error code. I know that Jaguar installed Alpine CHM-S620 cd-changers. So in theroy you could go to an audio store and get the same cd-changer and it should have the same plugs so you wont need to rewire anything. I havent done it yet because I just bought the 1994.
