Unit was installed in an '89 full size Bronco. It was brand new straight out of the box. All sources except CD work fine. When a cd is inserted it flashes "reading" once, then "loading" for about 5 seconds then ejects the cd. No other errors are displayed.
I reset the unit and attempted to play a CD again with the same result. I also tried about 20 cd's on varied media, from CD-R, to store bought, new and old. I also tested the Cd's in other players and all worked fine.
Is there a possibility that something is wired wrong? All speaker outputs are hooked to RCA jacks, so the only wires connected on the headunit are the keyed power, battery power, ground and remote for the amps.
Is there something special you need to do to 'activate' the cd portion? The manual states the unit must be turned off from demo mode by pressing the control knob towards either AM or FM while in standby mode. When I do that, nothing happens.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?

you have to call eclipse. your head unit is locked and you have to get tech support to unlock it. if you bought it from someone and just installed it good luck. if you bought it brand new and have the receipt or box you'll be in a better position to get some help but without those you're not going to get too far
If this is a cd changer type, then they have a connection that plugs in the cd changer port and straight to your ipod. Or you can get a nice little wireless fm transmitter off of ebay brand new for $1 plus shipping. You also can use the bluetooth if you have the correct options.

I have the same Kenwood unit and mine worked great for over 2 years.... I now get the same 05 error code whenever i insert any cds.... I havent yet been able to find anything about this on the net... I am about to take the cd player in for the extended warranty I purchased with it.... It is by far the best cd player that I have ever owned...............
It sounds like it is attempting to read the t.o.c. (table of contents) which tell the unit where everything is on the cd,and failing to do so, then ejecting, the first thing to do is try cleaning the lens and if there is no change then replace the laser pickup
