1994 lexus ls 400, cd player
Hello I just purchased a 1991 Lexus LS400
I have one of those 6 cd changers and got "err" when I started up the CD.
Here is what I tried and the result
1. I took out the CD,s replaced with new ones and it played but only for a bit, then even the new CD's got the err message
2. I then though maybe dust and/ or dirt so I took out the 6 pack of CD's and blasted compressed air into the unit from a can of computer cleaner compressed air. Lost the err message but then came back
3. Read a few other ideas on the problem and then tried the old hair dryer trick. (I am a long term live a board boater and have brought back may mis-behaving electronic devices that have moisture issues with the hair drier) However the hair drier did not do away with the err message.
4. two more boating tricks I thought of... I wiped down each leaf of the CD pack with rubbing alcohol
and actually got a good deal of dirt off the plastic, finally and probably the solution I sprayed some "wire dryer" a light spray then a mist.( Wire dryer made by Gunk is a spray can of a liguid we used all the time to get cars started in the cold weather, even got a better connection by spraying on battery wires to get the sailboat diesel started with an almost dead battery.)
I Waited a few minutes put back the cd holder and it worked.
It has been about 6 hours and it is still running like a champ.
could have been the combination or just the wire dryer...not very scientific maybe it will help
