"error 1" when playing a new cd - Tundra Toyota Cars & Trucks

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Dec 31, 2008

    Every time I insert a CD into my 2007 Toyota Yaris - (MP3 CD Player) - It says "Error 1". If you try it enough times, it will eventually work - but that could take 30 minutes of putting the CD in, pulling it out. Putting it back in, then pulling it out.

You will have to have the CD player repaired, the loading mechanism has a problem.

Cd player error

a stock day 1 03 honda headend radio and CD Player?

yes/no.? if not , post maker ,model number of unit, can look them all up. and even fix them.

try a new , real CD, from a store, called CDDA ,

like Hank Williams.

Does it play now. (yes, progress)

you never said what CD you have, there are vast types.

CDDA (all play)

CD-r few to none.

DVD none.

CR-RW, none.

mp3 , non

your CD came new with a book listing all valid formats

i bet you lost that,

the orig manuals said ., some CD-r play

and only burns (rips) from CDDA, to CDR.

never MP3 or DVD or with complex file structures

hell even new cars , fail with insane complex directory or file structures. (cept my home theatre, amp plays it all. but says it will and does, but back in dark ages of CD NO, not at aLL.)

some start to work and freeze half way but CDDA works always.

if not? the Drive is DOA> the parts are more that a new radio.

I have personally burnt every form, and complexity CD and DVD

and have tried i on many cars. (other home equipment)

today, I DONT, run USB flash , mp3 or wav.s.

CD/s are now relic tech, to me. life is too short of scratches and hang\'s, for me.

answer 2: real new hank disc , any real CDDA .

it gives and error.

that means, :

1: the driver is filthy head lens.

2: motor dont spin

3: optical sensor bad or piece of junk in the gap.



6: head motor stalled.

can do 20 more , but why , its dead and once cleaned still dead

the parts are too expensive and labor 10x that. why worry dead.

replace it. and upgrade (zero CD)

2007 toyota camry cd player reading error 1

I had the error code no. 1 in my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has the CD radio unit with JBL system. It will not eject the CD, or play it. I removed the entire radio/CD unit and replaced it with a used excellent unit bought off of ebay for $100, and the replacement works fine. However the replacement is also 7 years old. Therefore I would not be surprised if it failed again. Prior to the error 1 I had intermittent error 3 codes, which had the same effect: no playing of the CD, unable to eject, and unable to insert other CDs. Sometimes the error codes would go away, and the function would be normal. But once it started, I think it was on a downhill path. A new replacement is nearly $2000. Used are about $100 to $200 or more depending on the seller and condition of the unit. Youtube has videos on how to replace the unit which only requires simple tools: it is not difficult but takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If you do it you have to put the car in gear to move the gear shift gate, which requires the car to be on, so you should have the parking brake on for safety. One alternative is to send your unit to a repair company but that might cost more than simply replacing the unit. Good luck!

Qx56 will not play any cd

Put in a CD that is fairly new that you have not recorded and see how it plays. If a new CD plays well then it is possible that there is an issue with either the CD itself or the head within the CD may be out of alignment. If all else fails then take it to a reputable audio installation facility or the Infinity dealership in your area. Depending upon how you feel about your Infinity, you could do well with a third party CD player. Are you having any other audio problems?

My radio/CD player constantly says "ERR" and CD's won't play anymore. It doesn't show the time or the radio station either, just "ERR". I can hear it, like it's trying...

HI lisasmith566 IT is not a fuse problem .
the problem is your the CD part of the radio
must likely the cd is stock or more likely the cd drive motor is defective .
FIRST try pushing eject on radio and see CD comes out if not you need a new radio .

good luck vote

Lexus 2001 is 200 6 disc stereo error 1 code shows when trying to play cds

Error 1 - "disc is dirty, damaged, or is inserted upside down"

I quote other solution comments:

I've been getting the Err 1 and Err 3 for a while now, my headunit needs replacing but I haven't had chance yet...
I've found that the cold weather makes it worse as the CDs get that cold they are covered in condensation so the CD has trouble reading them..
In my experience when you get an Err 3 it's basically knacked and needs replacing and Err 1's can sometimes be read problems - what's the disk like?
Mine has started giving Err 1's on brand new CD's (not CDRs) so she's probably having trouble focussing....
If the car is less than 5 years old the headunit should be covered under warranty (ie free).

Hope helps.
