Hello! The "E20" error code loosely means that the CD player cannot focus, or read the disc properly. This could be from a number of reasons, dirty pickup lens, dirty/scratched disc, excessive humidity, or using a burned/copied CD that was burned at a speed that was too fast to provide a "deep" enough burn to the disc. And lastly, I know GM's Delco radios in the late 90's had issues reading CD-RW's; but read CD-R's fine (if burned slow enough)

My first suggestion would be to see if this happens on all CD's - originals and/or burned ones. If it only happens on burned/copied discs - I'd recommend slowing down the burn speed to no faster than 16x and retrying. If it does happen with both types of discs, then I'd purchase a CD lense cleaner and run that through a couple of cycles.


Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

2005 pt cruiser cd player rejects cd and shows err


Either it's a bad CD (format, or scratches), or you have a faulty CD Player. If the CD player is bad, it is likely much cheaper to just buy a new one, than to fix the factory one.

Cd stack in cd player,screen shows err


My CD Player did the same. It showed an "ERR" message when trying to detect the beginning of a CD. I thought that the CD was dirty and wiped it down. Then I discovered that the player would detect the CD when the car was idle, but not when the car was in motion. Maybe the laser is THAT sensitive. Hope this works for you.

Cd player keeps rejecting cd & show an peo-e error on 97 acura cl


PEO normally means Player Error Optical which means that for some reason the cd player is not reading the cd correctly.  This can happen if the disk is dirty or has a lot of scratches.  If the disk is clean and in good condition more than likely the cd player will need to be replaced.
