    After stripping out the unit I found that the home microswitch was loose.

    This meant that whenever the laser tried to home it didnt make the switch and the metal section which was supposed to press the switch in actually repeatidly hit the cd drive motor.

    Switch secured, problem fixed.

Had exactly the same issue then couple of weeks later the car battery failed.

Cause turned out to be that the main car battery is failing and subsequently the voltage/current capacity is dropping, especially at iginition on. CD mechanism is very sensitive to this.

To fis - its easy - get a new battery - could also take to a auto garage and they will test it to confirm.

CD player won't load

the CD player is toast.
can you <? i dont know, are you a technician>
but for sure it can be fixed, any tech can
but will cost more than a new CD head.
that is why we throw away things, 2 hr. labor + parts is more that
china new player.... economics.
You could remove the lid and see if some young kid stuffed
in some junk into the slot.
or you see it is totally broken parts inside.

Not sure here but try this ,insert a empty cartridge and then turn radio on ,then press reject cartridge and see if one cd magically appears in the cartridge .This normally shows as error 1 and its caused by the battery being disconnected with the cartridge in the player

Cd player wont accept cd.s says load error

pull the player out but leave it connected. when you push the eject button,lightly tap on the top of the cd player, if there is one jammed, you may want to consider just getting a new cd player, it may do the same to your cd!

Hello, How can I load 6 cds into the audio system of my 2007 honda accord? I do not have the owners manual, kindly assist. Thanks.

Look on the face of the radio for the Load button. Turn on the ignition and then change it to CD by pressing the CD button. Stick a CD in the slot and then press Load. Wait for the CD to load. Now stick another CD in the slot and press Load. keep doing this until all 6 are loaded.

I have the same problem. mine pulls the cd's in and then push them out so i just keep my finger there preventing it from pushing it out. It then loads but sometimes it doesn't see the cd in that slot so what i do is to push the load button and then select that slot WITHOUT putting a cd in.It then re-reads that slot and then find that cd.You might have to do that with all the slots.
