What it's doing is sensing an overload of voltage this is an internal circuit problem. you can either have it repaired by an audio tech or replace it with a new one if the cost of repair is more than what the deck is worth. please rate this.. thanks

Mitsubishi Projection TV shuts off

A model number would help but many have a self check; when turn set on and power light (green?) comes on and a few seconds later off on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input (label may be source) for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 1 blink, 2 blinks and pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

If you have unplugged the set it will always show the 1,2 above which is no error found, power it back and turn it on again, when fails do the check again.

let me know what error you find.

disconnect the 2 audio fuses and wiat 5 minutes with the ignition key off, insert both fuses, then turn the key on. if it doesnt eject, it probably has an internal defect and will need to be repaired.

Please check if the connector of the faceplate and head unit don't have dirty or bended pins, these can produce false contacts between them and can produce fails as the one you have, if this is OK, maybe you have a bad faceplate or head unit.

Turn stereo on says cd error and it will not eject the cd and ejecting cd stays on the display

Hello ,
You surely have a mechanical problem , the tongues and lever that manages the CD loading and discharging are stucked , surely the Cd is not sitting well enough for the Digital lens to read the Cd, Ultimate solution is to replace the CD drive (you could get a low price stand alone connected via AV if your car stereo has Aux input because from experience trying to resolve the delicate levers and tongues dont work out well in the end

These units are actually nice units. There is a "loading belt" inside that controls the tray movement as well as the final "load" of the mechism into the play position. If the load does not complete, the unit will "eject" or open up. This is most often cured by replacing the loading belt. This is a common problem with any rubber component. As it ages, it gets a little slippery and thus will not have the grip to complete the loading sequence. The belt for this will run about $5.

Interesting enough! One thing that I can say is when what you described happens, its usually when the player is not actually powered on. Meaning, I can load and unload cds from my player when the car is turned off and it will show me the clock and all that you described. That is because I still have power going to it when the car is not on. Therefore, the only thing that would be missing is the power wire that powers the player when the car is on. (try to follow me on this lol!) The YELLOW wire is usually the constant power from the battery to the unit, that would allow the unit to perform as you say, the RED wire is what powers on the unit when the car is turned on. It sounds like the problem would lay somewhere in there. One way to check this, (BE careful not to blow anything), take your cd player out of the car, put the red and yellow wires together, place the black wire to the ground on the battery and the red and yellow wire to the positive side of the battery. This will be all the power you need. Try to operate the cd player now and if everything works, you know that your just missing the Red wires power. Hope this helps.
