Cd player malfunction

I have a 1999 gmc sierra that the cd player won't play my homemade cd's. I replaced the original player with one from a wrecked truck and get the same result. When I put one of my burnt cd's in it kicks it back out and says err. I sometime have to put my regular cd's in the player several times to get them to play. When it plays it sounds fine. I'd appreciate any help I can get on this situation. Thanks, Darren.

These units will not recognize certain media formats, notably, if you are burning your CD's with files in AAC, WMA, or MP3 format. I would highly recommend replacing the factory head unit with one that is aftermarket. You can do so with units that start around $100. The bonus is that you can get something that is iPod or MP3 player ready and never have to look at a CD again!

Cd player malfunction I have a 1999 gmc sierra that the cd player won't play my burned cds


Check other players to see if plays on any player. I had a computer once that kept defaulting to "data CD" no matter what I was burning, so I had to manually go to the setting and set it for "music".

My teac 5 cd player wont play any cd's there has been suggestion that the laser reader is not working so how do I fix this?


It is a job for a Technician and there are no user serviceable parts inside a unit like this- people usually wreck the units as they are delicate.
The Laser pickup does not often times go bad that easily and that is just a persons way of sounding like they know what they are talking about but without substantial proof I do not just take that as fact. Many many other things can cause a malfunction other than the laser- it can be a nad spindle motor, platter distance can be wrong and can even be dust on he lense. I have working Sony decks here from 1987- these are the original pickups- same kind you have I bet.

Hi, I put the cd with the label up side, and the radio tries to look for the 12 cds one by one, but it is saying NO CD in all of them.


Is it a store bought cd??

Some cd players just simply will not play homemade cd's, or cd's made from a computer, especially if they are not finalized, which is a process in making homemade cds that prepare the cd to be played in a cd player.

pull a part/pick a part may have a wrecked version of your ride....see if they have one, it should be a $2 part. Or for about $20 get a manual at Advance Auto...they are about the most reasonable for manuals
