SOURCE: My stereo won't read the disks inserted in my CD player

All you can do is get a lens cleaner and hope that clears it up, otherwise you are looking at what might be an expensive replacement of the CD/lens/laser unit.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

My CD drawer will not open or close

I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Avic-z1 touch screen does not work

Is the screen cracked? Just a small crack can cause problems. When the screen is cracked and you touch it, it touch's some where else on the screen. I cracked mine, and I just changed it. It's pretty easy, all you need is a small phillips screw driver. Good luck!
