Sounds like its jammed, does it make any attempt to eject, can you hear any noise from inside?

    Hi if it ejects fine and the head unit always sees the changer then it could be the laser or may just need a service, otherwise you could have a faulty connection on the socket, or haveca contact switch that is playing up. and making the unit thgink something has jammed. either way, it wil need to be looked at by a repair company.

Wont start

Just a thought. It might be the anti-theft portion of the remote lock system. I cannot explain what might reset it to make it work later... unless perhaps unlocking a second time does it.

Hi,I have had this Pioneer CDX FM67 mounted on my bike for 5 yrs and it always played good and showed no problems.This year every time I load some cds in the player nothing happens and then I get an error...

It relates to the failure of the loading section. So check on the linking wires/flexible strip to the load motor- this is a ccommon fault and is seen most of the time.
Secondly the tray with CD can get strck due to a faulty disc- being warped. if so manually retrieve and reset.
finally there is a tiny hole near to the eject which can reset the changer if this has hung up or is jammed.
Open the covers and probe.

Hi I've got a renault espace with single cd player


I have come across this problem before.

For the player to reset after the code has been incorrectly entered several times, the screen should display code.

So to reset this put the keys in the ignition and turn the ignition on so the red lights are on in the dash, no need to start the car.

Do this in your driveway or garage at home where it is secure,
because the ignition needs to remain on for about an hour for it to reset so it says code again on the screen .
once that happens you can enter the code.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a Great Day

I have a nissan sentra with a regular one disc cd player and radio at the top of the dash and at the bottom of the dash there is a six disc player, there is no reset button or nothing on it, i have about...

There are only a few ways you can go about this problem. It has nothing to do with a reset button or any other thing.
The best way to do this is to take the car to someone who is an expert in car electronics to help you fix this problem. This is necessary because it requires removal of the whole panel and then it also involves adjustments of some mechanisms which control rotation and movement of the discs.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya
