    I had the same problem. I disconnected the battery and reconnected it. There was a short in the system, and afterwards, my CD player worked fine, still does. =)

    My 2005 Malibu cd player says no disc but there is a disc in the unit but it doesn't play..The dealer told me the radio had to be replaced..I will disconnect the battery after reading the suggestions for this problem..Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Same solution as the other post.
I have a 2005 Maxx - was driving in subzero temps this morning and the audiobook cd stopped playing and the clock reset. I thought the disk might be dirty and ejected it. Put it back in and nothing. Pressed eject and the display read "No disk".
Disconnected the battery, reconnected it and the disk ejected.
The test will be whether it plays or not in the morning.

Toyota echo 2002 cd player (without cassette, marked 31804) Radio works fine, but when a put on a cd, it reads it and starts playing... with no sound. Any ideas? Thanks a lot


well , as with all discs, old player will NOT play all CDs.
not even close.
first ask an old guy for CDDA disk or buy one from walfart.
then try that, only these disks work in all players.
other disks may or will not work.
like DVD-R, CD-R and any other recordable disks will fail.
that is the acid test, if the CDDA disk works (real audio disk)
works then the drive is ok, if not, its bad. simple as apple pie.

Which fuse is the cd player in the fuse box


One circuit is constant power to keep the clock and station pre-set memory maintained. The other is for the radio in general. If the clock works, pull both radio fuses and put them back in one at a time to see which one is constant power. If one of them is blown, you can usually see the wire inside it is burned with a gap. I don't believe there is a separate fuse for the CD player apart from the one for the radio. If the radio works but the CD player doesn't, I'm guessing it's an internal problem.

2007 Toyota Camry When I put disk in the CD player after about 30 seconds of it flashing saying reading disk it then shows an ERROR 1!?? Any help??? Thks


It can be dirty or faulty disk,but if that's not the case the problem relates to cd player lens.Its not reading the disk.The inside lens which reads and detects the cd is either got dirty or its faulty and unit has to be replaced.-------So whether is dirty lens or faulty that can be confirmed once the unit is inspected.Try running lens cleaning cd in your cd player unit and see if that is helping.========For more help i suggest refer the help links mentioned below:------

Cd player will not eject disk or change


As for those players. If you have never takin apart one before you should get someone at an electronics store to help you. If you bring it into Nissan they will get send your radio to the manfacture and then fix your radio and send you back your CD's wiyth the radio. Those types of radio/CD players are very difficult to work on. I recommend you bring it to somone who knows what they are doing . or buy a used one.

A few months ago...i had a cd stuck in my 2004 malibu cd player. I was able to remove the cd with tweezers, but now when I try to put a new cd in, whatever the thing is called that grabs the cd, won't...


Turn off the car (ignition switch off), pull the fuse for the radio, start the car (ignition switch to run), and put the fuse back in. Should completely reset the radio and let you eject the CD if it doesn't automatically eject it when the radio powers up again. Even with both the radio and the car turned "off" the radio still has power running to it, and it really isn't off, but in an extremely low power "sleep" mode (it's how the clock keeps running among a few other things).

The radio fuse should be a 10 Amp blade type fuse under the panel on the right side of the center console down in the right front passenger foot well. The panel pulls off and has a fuse diagram on the inside of the panel. Recommend using a flashlight.

This 'reading text" lockup is a known issue for that radio for CDs that have a large amount of "CD-Text" on them (an extension of the audio CD standard) in addition to the audio tracks. The CD deck and radio software were designed to handle a few kilobytes, but newer CDs often have more, much more, and it overloads the radio software trying to read it as it cannot store it all, and it locks up the deck. There was a radio software update fix for this that was rolled out to dealerships when these vehicles were under warranty, but apparently your radio was never reflashed or exchanged for one with the software update. I recommend seeing a Chevy dealership and asking to talk to the service manager about getting the radio updated or exchanged with the software fix . . . and they should do this without any charge as it was a latent defect in the radio software from day one . . . don't let them tell you the deck is broken . . . the problem is deck lockup when trying to read audio CDs with large amounts of CD-text on them because of a latent software defect in the radio (that was there from the day the radio was made). Only a few music CDs seem to have this problem, but it's a huge one with audio book CDs (books on CD) that have usually have many more audio tracks and much more CD-text compared to music CDs.

If you cannot get satisfaction after visiting two or three dealers, call Chevy directly and take up the issue with them . . . and tell them there should have been a recall to fix it while the vehicle was under warranty . . . but there wasn't (I believe there is a service bulletin though).

2007 malibu maxx will not start after I pulled a jammed cd out of the player. the engine would not turn over and the anti theft light began flashing and cd player clicking. I disconnected and reconnected...


Did you Take the radio out of the car. Sounds like you pulled the theft wire apart that goes to the
ignition switch. If this happens the starter and the fuel are disabled preventing the car from starting.
If everything looks ok I suggest calling a radio tech guy or pull the radio out to take in for repair.
I know these radio's are sensitve and have theft lock in them also.

2002 Ford Escape, cd's stuck in 6 CD player..how do you fix that and how do you remove faceplate


i had the same problem. the slots inside the cd player that hold the cds slide up and down according to which one you pick. a couple of those got stuck on mine. i took it apart and got the cd out, but wasn't acutally able to fix it. some of the gears got stripped because i waited to long to fix it and it just ground the teeth down trying to get it to work. you can pick up ford radio removal tools at wal mart, or any car audio store to pull your radio out.

Can't get CD out of player. EJECT no longer working . In a 2005 Grand Caravan single CD player


I'm assuming the radio works. If so,the player is jammed & unfortunately the only solution is to remove the radio & try to take it apart to retrieve the disk. Usually you end up destroying the radio,but it's shot anyway.
