    I have the same problem with my 2004 VW Golf 1.6 - my CD refuses to play more than often - the words "tp chk MAGAZINE" appear on my player. Recent research and the car booklet seems to refer the problem to CD players with CD changers, which I certainly don't have.

    Im the same. I have a volkswagon polo and just got a cd player installed last christmas. I have had no problems with it before now, all of a sudden it is saying CHK MAGAZINE. Sometimes it does play but sounds funny and can skip! It is driving me mad, is there any way of fixing this? Have i pressed a button? I don't want to be paying money to get this fixed if its something silly...

Can only take a shot in the dark but sounds like dust or a spring off in the magazine holder. hard one to call without seeing it.

How do you remove a stuck cd magazine from cd player in vehicle?


does your cd player have a removeable face plate if so take it off and if not well then you will use the same tool as well , get a pair of tweezers and flatten them out as much as possible but use a small hammer then get a screwdriverand pry it open just slightly place some masking tape on the inside where the tweezers will clamp down not to scatch the cd place an object in the opening of your cd player to keep the flap openwith a small flash light look for the cd and turn the cd player on and have someone press the eject button while you pull on the cd and walla it will eject it with your help . good luck

CD stuck in cd player


Hi there:
When CD ERROR shows on the player display, there is a problem with the CD mechanism. It will have to be sent out or taken to a repair shop to have it fixed.



Hope this helps.

My CD players says check magazine when magazine is already in there.....


My 1999 Beetle did the same thing. I didn't have any luck repairing it, even tried a different magazine but nothing helped. Fortunately I found someone local selling a used trunk-mounted CD changer for $10, so I bought that and it worked like a champ.

So for me, I ended up having to replace the CD changer to fix this problem. Hope you have better luck.

I just purchased a 2008 VW Passat. It has an iPod docking station in the glove box. The dealer said to plug in your iPod and hit the "CD" button twice. Nothing happens. The sound system keeps...


The CD player needs to recognize the "magazine". Once the IPod is plugged in then turn on the radio and press the CD button until it says Magazine.

I have a 97 Buick Regal and I get a E20 error message:cd player


It's just an error message. It stands for Error 20. There is no way to fix the problem. It only reads cd's that it wants. But if it does play a cd, then suddenly stops, and says E20 and spits the cd out, it's most likely because the cd player got too hot. My car does that all the time. And it won't play a lot of burned cd's. Hope this helped.

Toyota dashboard CD player won't eject


I had this say problem with my 2000 solara. Here is the fix, remove one of the car battery terminals for a couple of mins (3-4mins). The reattach the battery terminal back. This would make your cd player and car clock reset. once you start your car you should be able to eject the cds. You'll just need to reprogram all your preset radio station. Hope it helps
