KDC-MP228 cd no play w/ codes

I have a KDC-MP228 and it is 1.5 yrs old. It will not play any CD's and keeps popping the E-05 (cd upside down) and TOC ERR (no magazine loaded). I am not using a disc changer and I have tried every type of cd I have and even some brand new ones with the same result.

Re: KDC-MP228 cd no play w/ codes

Gave up on it and bought a pioneer. Kenwood said to take it in to a service center. The service center would have cost me more than the crappy stereo.

I get the TOC Error, when I put bought cds in.

don't think you will like this answer but, it probably time to get a new cd player... you could try using a cd cleaner designed to clean the laser or spray the insides with compressed air.

Cd read e-05

Well E-05 error code on Kenwoods is "the cd is upside down" So either the disc is upside down or there is a problem and the Kenwood unit thinks it is upside down.

this is caused from the pickup needing to be cleaned(lazer) remove deck remove small phillips screw on top plate use a damp q-tip (alcohal) gently rub the lazer top with the q-tip allow to dry aprox 10min reasemble and enjoy. Also make sure u don't need a security code for your radio before u unhook the power plug!!!!

Toc error

toc error means "table of contents" error... means the player is unable to read the disc at all. May have a dirty focal lense to laser. clean gently with some windex on a cotton wool bud. It may be a faulty spindle motor that spins the disc. the bearings get worn or uneven and do not allow for disc reading to be successful. a check for this is a drop of oil to the bearing. It may then start to read discs, but will still require the motor to be replaced. . Check for the above... but if there is more required, take it to a Kenwood 'Agent... it may need a laser change

What does toc err mean?

TOC is table of contents. Typically if its on a recorded cd try burning a cd from antoher computer and try it, if it works its most likely that your burner or software or ccd's your using are bad. Also is it a MP3 disc your trying to play? If so then you MUST burn it as a MP3 cd. You cant just burn MP3's to a CD and it read them. If this is the case thats why you are getting the TOC error because its not writing to the CD whats on the CD on the TOC area of the disc.
