It is always cheaper to buy a working used one from a junkyard than to fix the old one. look around on eBay, craigslist, and junkyards. recyclers pull the radios and owners manuals out of cars and pile them in the office. so call around to local junkyards looking for a recent pontiac with CD player. you will most likely have to take a sawzall to your old one to get your discs out, but CDs are old tech now anyway. you should be able to get one for under 50 bucks, if you are not handy stereo install shops take them out and put them in very quickly and cheaply and are yet another source for used OEM stereos.

When i try cd it keeps writing error.and reject every cd plates i insert.it was playing normal 2days ago.pls what do i do when error notice appear.the car is honda 2003 model coupe.thanx


Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement...
First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry.
FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.

Disc stuck in factory installed DVD player


needs a new disc changer. Something is wrong internally. You will be able to get them back if you go to the dealership and get an exchange unit. They will send the discs back when they remanufacture the unit.

My battery died now disc player says no discs please help?


Very tricky, my suggestion is to restart the radio again see if it reads the CDs this time. Try removing the radio fuse, where all the other fuses are at. Turn the radio on without the fuse, press and hold a button for a minute just to make sure you drain the electricity from the changer. Then put the fuse back and see what happens. You can also disconnect the negative or ground from the battery wait five minutes and connect it again but this will also restart the car computer.

6 disc CD changer is stuck


This happened to me a few years ago. It wouldn't eject the CD for a year. I literally smacked the side of the dash where the cd player is located and it came out the next time I pressed eject. I found that same solution in a couple of forums. I had to do it a few times. I think the CD just has to allign with something to eject properly.

yeah dude that happened to me, i put subs in my 05 g6, it supposedly happens when the battery dies or u undo the batter, so i took it too a dealership and they tried making me pay $30 for them to tell me it doesn't work so being the angry person i gave them a few choice words and got out of the nice 30 bucks but they will make u pay for a new stock system for a nice $350 bucks which i told them to go screw themselves and i put the dash kit in so i could read the mpg temp and all that and just put a dvd player in it was better and looks better. and to get ur discs out u pull the stock system out get a screw driver and pliers and start taking the junk apart to get them
