ERROR message - CD is dirty or not put in the magazine correctly

Can you help ? Whenever I try to play a CD on my Sony CDX 605 CD Changer I receive the ERROR message on my in car receiver (XTC-C200RDS). I have looked in my handbook which advises that if this message is received then the CD is dirty or not put in the magazine correctly. I have done this and it still does not work. Saying that it does work intermittently. Does anyone have any other ideas ?

Error-99 shows on screen then turn system off

Error 99 is CD not up to speed. Either the CD is slipping, Defective CD, pickup is unable to read sectors and is either dirty pickup or pickup going bad.

Is it always the same CD you are playing? Is the CD smudged with finger prints or dirty? If not suspect the CD itself. This will require Repair or Replace, as E-99 is a classic malfunction & unit will need to be taken apart, "unless" there is a CD stuck in the Unit.

If you have loaded a Blank Cartridge & clicked Eject & found no extra CD, then you will need to have a Reputable Shop Repair Typically this is the Logic I.C. & / or the Servo Motor. Sometimes you can find the same Unit on E-Bay, Craigs List, etc for less than Repair

Changer Error Codes:
E-00: Poor Cable connection.
E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
E-02: No Disc in magazine.
E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

Hope this helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My Sony CD changer (CDX-454RF) won't play the first three slots, and I get error messages on other CD's and plays them when "it" wants to I guess

The changer has a mechanical slide system inside it. It may be binding up around those positions. You may want to take the cover off and reposition some of the excess grease into those slide tracks and try it again. Or you could just be happy with a functioning 7 CD changer.

Error message E08

You said you cleaned the player but did you clean the disc? Any scratches, dirt debris? To clean the disc you can but special cleaning soultions at various retailers. Have you tried playing diffrent discs, that will help rule out if it's the player or disc.
