Question about Nakamichi MB-8 5-Disc CD Player
My 13 year old Nakamichi 7 cd changer MB1s skips, and I am told there are no more parts available. Can this be cleaned or adjusted? Anyone know of a comparable unit to put in my home stereo system?
Sorry, forgot to longin prior to responding to your Q. Let me know your email address and I'll scan the english version of the booklet and send the attachment. If not, then go to the www.nakamichi.com and search for MB100 where you will find more details with specification. Good luck!

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.

Having just removed three discs from an identical unit which also jammed, I will say how easy that was. I do not know if the unit will now function when reinstalled in the vehicle.
Remove the unit from its mounts, remove the outer "frame" (if fitted), remove the two #2 phillips pan head screws from the sides holding the face to the chassis, remove the four #0 phillips screws (black, flat head) from the top and bottom of the face plate.
Slide the face plate off and carefully handle it while tethered by its ribbon wire.
Turing the unit upside down, peer into the opening and observe the disc, gently press the carriage away from the top of the unit (now the bottom, as it is inverted) and allow the disc to be freed, simply pull the disc out.
If there are multiple discs stuck inside, oberve the large metal gear just inside, carefully rotate the gear to actuate the loading mechanism as needed to release addtional discs.
