Question about 2007 Lexus ES 350

Open Question

2008 Lexus ES35 audio system

I have the mark Levinson audio system in the car and it is supposed to play DVD audio discs in 5.1 surround, but i have channels missing.  the dealer says that another identical system has the same problem and doesn't have a clue how to fix it.  i paid extra for this and it doesn't do what it is suppose to do.  My 2004 acura TL has no problem playing the dvd audio discs in noticeable surround sound. Have you heard of this?  Any thoughts?

I have a nissan murano of 2005 it plays CD only, and I want it to play DVD as well is their a solution and it yes wht is that, please tell me am from Tanzania Africa whr technology is not that advanced.

let me say sir, you are a smart fellow!
this is the first post ever with a location (thanks)
2005. hummmmm and a started year , thanks 2 times.
CD type A or B (be is the changer option?)

as you may not know, CD players of all types evolved
first came CD-DA (audio discs )
then came , recordable disc that you can play.
then files, playing files of many times. MP3, and near endless updates to 2013.
and DVD, as you know there are no DVD-DA.
so they added the abiltiy to read, DVD with files.

id bet the head end audio , cd in your car varies by country.
I bet NIzzan puts diffent heads in different countries, this is near impossible to track. (ask nissan)
but to be sure, you can tests your CD.
if it dont play any DVD with MP3s on it , its not ever going to.
buy a new radio/CD/DVD with USB stick port. ($100 in uSA)
and then put your audio on the USB stick and forget DVD forever.

see all formats here, huge.

ok , i google your cars , operators manual
it stats only disks marked CD-DA work.
and says, no CCCD, no CD-r , no CD-rw work.
and need not say DVD as it dont do those because they are never CDDA.

new radio time.

Radio shuts off after 5 seconds

I'm not sure what radio option you have in your vehicle or if you have any aftermarket equipment installed to interface radio functions or operations. But if it is the Mark Levinson set up, the software that controls the the function that you are having problems with, is possibly corrupted and radio may need to be reprogrammed at the dealer with new updates/calibrations so it can stay in communication with radio amplifier and all other options including the HVAC system controls. For being a 01' model, this car was way ahead if its time!

How to tune up dvd player

  • Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of RCA audio and video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. The colors of these cables are yellow (video), white (left audio) and red (right audio).

Take the other end of the RCA audio and video cables and connect them to the color-corresponding inputs on your television. When plugging in these cables, look for a label for the input, such as "Video 1" and "Audio 1." This will be important in Step 5.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the video input channel that you noted in Step 3. If you did not take note, you can also tune through your television's input channels until you find the one displaying the signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Insert a VHS tape or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Component Video

Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of component video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. These cables will look similar to composite audio and video cables, but they are instead color-coded as red, blue and green.

Plug the other end of the component video cables into the color-corresponding inputs on your television. Take note of what input number you are plugging the cords into, as it will be useful later.

Connect a set of RCA audio cables to "Audio Out" jacks on your VHS/DVD player, then connect the other ends to your television. These cables are color-coded as red and white and must be plugged into the same input number as the component video cables.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the component video input channel where you connected the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Insert a VHS or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

I am trying to play a dvd in my 2007 Tahoe. It will not play and gives me an optical error message. Any thoughts?

{: ) If you have been playing DVD normally before on your Tahoe, and now you read error messages, it could be the player or the disc at fault. Most of the time it is the disc at fault. As much as possible, the discs shoul be clean and scratch free, not warped, and compatible to your player. Avoid using discs with paper label. Try a known good DVD disc and observe for any progress.
Just in case it's the first time you try and you have a navigation radio, check again your RPO lists. and look for a UVB listed on the RPO sticker. Or simply check the DVD symbol on the left lower corner of the radio, which indicates that it is capable of playing DVD audio or video.

I had to get a new battery and now my dvd player will not work...this seems to be happening to other folks as well. Any suggestions? I know if I take it to the dealer, they'll just want me to buy another...

This is just a thought, may not be the problem, but in most modern cars they tell you not to remove the battery lead for a long time, If you took a long time to replace the battery that may have reset some of the computer settings,
To reset them you need to scan the system which means the dealer. Sometimes you can get a free scan at Autozone, worth a try.

My 2006 LX470 seems to have a music-loving ghost. The CD & radio will turn itself on and the CD will switch to radio & vice versa. This has happened 8-10 times in the past month. Any thoughts?

The Phantom rides in style......Awesome vehicle
Sounds like an internal fault in the audio switching, check your warranty, since that LX might still be under the 4 years and if so get to a dealer ASAP.
You could go online to Lexus owners club at Lexus .com and search the issue too. Never heard of this one but the LX is a niche market so I don't see tons of them....Is yours a Mark Levinson sound system?It will say on the dash.

DVD Player will spin disk, but will not read

Is your DVD player a multisystem player??????? If no,It is quite possible that the DVD's you are playing are not recorded on the format which your DVD can play. Please check It is also possible that the head of the DVD requires cleaning over use for 2 years OR the DVD being played has been lying inoperative for a long time thus gathering dust and moisture requires cleaning now
