Pioneer CDX-P22 won't read disk (car boot mounted unit)
Hi, I have a Pioneer CDX-P22 in the boot of the car, with the matching head unit. All was fine until suddenly it wouldn't play. I've takent he casing off, cleaned the read-head, re-seated the ribbon cables etc. but no go. When you switch the unit on, it cycles all 6 disks into the reader, the head moves a little as if trying to read. When you press play, the head unit displays the disk being "played" but does not display the track number, nothing happens. Sometimes it comes up with an error - I've seen error 11, 13, 14 but don't know what these mean, the manual is no help.
I'd like to fix it or replace it, but don't have much money....
I'm reasonably competent at fixing things, I can solder quite well and know how to use a multimeter no problem. I have an oscilloscope and know how to use it, but don't have a clue as to what I'm looking for on the unit.

Well you can please follow the below steps - 1. Disconnect your car battery. It is vitally important to your safety that you never work on any type of electronic in your car with the battery still connected, as this puts you at risk for electrocution. 2. Remove the old stereo by taking off all the dashboard panels surrounding your stereo, sliding out your old stereo head unit, and unplugging all the wires that are connected to the head unit. Discard the old stereo. 3. Take your Pioneer car stereo head unit and plug each of the positive wires from your car speakers to the positive terminals on the head unit. Take all of the negative speaker wires and connect them to the negative terminals on the head unit. 4. Attach the stereo's black ground wire to a metal bolt or screw located near where the stereo is mounted in the dash. 5. Connect all of the ignition power wires to your Pioneer stereo. 6. Take the harness connector and plug it into your car stereo. Now plug the antenna into the back of your head unit. 7. Slide the stereo back into the dash, screw it in place, and replace the dashboard pieces you removed earlier. 8. Reconnect your car battery, turn the car on and test out your new Pioneer car stereo.

With the top off the unit, you can turn the tray gears manually for slow eject function. Unplug unit before touching anything inside, check internal fuses. Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams and shorts. Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate when loading, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position.
