My trustworthy 15 year-old player has suddenly decided not to play certain discs and keep stopping at various points on various tracks on other discs. Any suggestions? Jeff


Clean the lens. There are CDs with tiny brushes glued to the bottom made to dust the lens (I think Radio Shack sells them). If that doesn't work, use optical lens cleaner on a lens cleaning tissue. Be very gentle, the lens mechanism is quite delicate and it doesn't take much external force to destroy it.

If there are fingerprints or other contaminants on the data side of your CDs, you can wash them with dish soap and water, then dry them with plain white facial tissue (no perfumes, lotions, etc.).

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail


That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.

This is a typical problem when the laser " eye" gets dust on it, unplug the unit and you can try to remove cover and spray the optical pickup "eye' with canned compressed air or other type of optical cleaner found at say like radio shacks, I have solved many disc reading errors with this method

I have a 1999 Lexus LX470 with a Nakamichi audio system with a 6 cd changer in the dash. The cd's will not eject and the screen says error. What can I do about this?


I feel your pain......and did extensive research on the internet.....Google "LX470, CD, err3" or "Nakamichi, CD, err3".

Take a look at this excellent explanation of how to dismantle and remove the head unit and retreive the jammed discs. I have used it and fished out three discs, but the CD Player still shows ERR3. An hour of work, so be prepared.

This is a site that provides repair services once you get the head unit out. http://www.carstereohelp.com/lexus.htm
"Six CD changer, Err message in display, will not play CD's, will not eject or accept CD's. Before repair, disconnect one of the car battery terminals for several minutes. This acts as a reset and may bring the changer back to working conditions. Otherwise, repair rate $385."

The Lexus dealer wants $750 to replace with a refurbished unit. Don't go down that route. Read these nightmare stories.

Don't buy a stray unit off of ebay, it is probably jammed or broken with the ERR3 meesage too!

If the home repair method doesn't work, then it will be better to just upgrade to a new head unit. I am buying a Jensen VM9215HD to get a multimedia system with all the trimmings and full iPod control for $460. Available on ebay or online stores. I'll install the unit myself, but you can get the unit and the job done at a local auto sound store for under $1000.

Good luck,

I have it all connected but it still wont work and there is power going through the ground wire on my amp for my car


Good question BUT, not much information to go on. "Won't Work" is a bit generic so how about asking if the head unit's display works? Do you have an additional amp connected? Does the amp power up? Does the head unit accept and play CDs? Does the radio tune?

Please "fill in the answers" and we'll go from there.
Thanks for your question
