Question about Panasonic CX-DP801 8-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Cd won't play

Cd is ejected as soon as it enters the player. The radio begins to play again. I have tried various discs that have worked in there previously and that do play on other players. The player is a P512 cd/tape/radio player.

Re: cd won't play

Easy fix, look at the front of your CD player, you should see a little pin hole, insert a paper clip into it and the pop the CD tray open.

CD player continues to attempt to eject/read CD even when unit is off?

These unit's have that problem. It is the reader inside of the deck, you can try cleaning it, but this is usually why they are replaced. Also the mode switch that activates the radio part will not change because it is telling the unit it is in CD and keeps searching for a disc. GM has the same problem, because they are also using the same kind of decks on the inside. Did it ever play a disc for you? The track that holds the CD inside may have been damaged by an accident, and it has fallen off the track, this could be fixed, it is just finding someone honest enough to do it, without "stealing" your time and money. I am sure you have tried to hit the eject button. Insert a disc(one you don't care about)and see if it will play. If it ejects it then you will know it is the track. Because it can not find the mode for play. Goodluck

I have a 2001 Honda Crv, the cd player keeps ejecting CDs before it has the chance to load them. The radio works fine, and I gave tried burnt and original disc CDs. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Are these CDs that you burned yourself? Older CD players won't recognize the audio file format of this kind of recording, only the established file format that typical retail CDs have used for years. In recent years, CD players have been developed to recognize more file types than just the old format; but with an older player like you have in your car, it wouldn't recognize what you were trying to play, as if you put a DVD in. It balks, and spits it out. You can burn CDs with the correct file format, you just need the appropriate software or file translator.

CD stuck in CD Player - 1998 Mazda Protege

It might be a Bose system. I usually remove stuck CD's by grasping the edge with a pair of tweezers and pulling slowly, there will be some resistance. Try to reset first by removing the fuse for about 30 seconds and after it powers up again (don't turn it on yet) push the eject button.

I have an '03 Explorer with the 6 disc changer. It does the same thing. Many times, you can set the radio to "FM1" and hold down buttons 3 and 6 on the radio. This will put the unit into self diagnostic mode. After it runs the diag., turn off the ignition and remove the key for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes it takes a couple times but it always works on mine.

I receive error msg and cant eject magazine

The magazine in our Sony CD player would not eject. I tried pressing two buttons at the same time etc., with no result. I uplugged the player, removed the screws that hold the black metal cover on and took off the cover (pull the metal up, out and away at the back bottom sides, then slide it back to release the lip from under the front pane.) Looked down inside and saw the problem, a CD disc extended about 1/2 inch from the magazine, blocking ejection. I pushed the extended edge of the disc back into the magazine with the tip of a kitchen knife. Plugged the player back in, pushed power and then the eject button, and the magazine ejected. Replaced the metal cover and it works fine. If it won't eject again I know what to do. Be sure to unplug before you work, you don't need an electrical shock.
All the best, Sonia Murray
