Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

Cd player reads error

It will spin, and make a very faint beeping noise. It will show track one on the display screen, and then error.

It does this to all my disks, and they aren't scratched.

Anyway I can fix this? I tried a cd cleaner but that didn't help.

The optic reader is most likely broke where the thin laser eye beam is not able to communicate with the optic reader. also the high temperature in the car causes these to crack internally. get another cd player because that one is toast!!!!!

My cd player wont take cd


CD players do a little POST before they show you the disc contents. The disc first spins up then the laser head skips across to read the index with is generally on the inside track near the center. If the CD doesn't spin or the head doesn't move the CD player will auto-eject the CD. I'd have that player serviced or replaced.

The cd player says error and will not play any cd's


A lot of times, cd players will show error, so like all of us, is start putting in all kind of other cd's even music we don't care about, like buck owen's and the bosby twins. Been there done that. Sounds like you have done everything at your end. So, here is what you do and most likely it will solve the problem. At almost any radio shack, best buy store, or stereo shops, they all have little Cd cleaning kits, it goes in like a regular Cd but cleans it, pretty easy and simple to use. Some times its just like putting a couple drops on a blank Cd with some rubbing alcohol and letting it cycle through for a few minutes. I hope it helps, please let me know, so you can get back to rock'n and drive'n

The cd player in my 1998 cadillac catera will not play a cd. it will load the cd then the screen reads "cd initializing". Shortly after the screen displays "cd error". what is wrong?


The mechanism has worn to the point that the tracking is no longer effective. So, you need to buy a new cd player or even a used one from a salvage yard to replace the old one.

CD takes too long to play or read


OEM cd players are set up to keep burned cds from playing well or at all. Some will work better if you use a better cd brand or quality cd.

I entered radio reset code for 2002 civic now the clock flashes and will not allow me to adjust it. How to solve this problem


Okay, I'm assuming that you were sucessful in resetting your radio code.
I'm also assuming that you have a CD player (which may not be the case).
The flashing clock also functions as an error code indicator. It should say something, indicating what the error is. You can't set the clock until the error is resolved (a disc stuck in the CD player, for example, on no disc in the CD when it's been told to play).
The procedure is as follows (which you probably know):
The audio system display usually shows the time when the ignition switch is in ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II). It shows the operation mode of the radio, cassette player, or optional CD player/changer when you operate them, then goes back to the time display after five seconds.
If an error occurs while operating the optional CD player or changer, the display will keep showing the error code and will not switch to the time display until the error is corrected. You can set the time only when the clock is displayed.
To set the hours, press the H (Preset 4) button while pressing the CLOCK (SCAN/RPT) button. Press and hold the H button until the hour advances to the desired time.
To set the minutes, press the M (Preset 5) button while pressing the CLOCK (SCAN/RPT) button. Press and hold the M button until the minutes numbers advance to the desired time.

If you don't have a CD player, or no error is showing in the clock read-out, leave a comment so I can investigate further.
Hope this helps you.

CD player in my 2004 Dodge Stratus doesn't work


are they Burned or copied CD's? CDR, CDRW? cause if they are some radios will not read them and give error messages. if not try using a lazer lens cleaner CD, they sell them at most music stores, you may have lint or dust on the CD lens with summer weather, and pollen in the air and dust, CD player lenses take a beating, so get a WET lazer lens CD cleaner, and that should help fix the problem
