Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix
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!

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.

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.
