I got message "e99" in my 10-disc changer kenwood kdc-c719, what does it mean? ty

• E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.
Unfortunately the E99 code is not definitive. There may be a mechanical jam with the changer or a problem with the motor.

I keep getting E-99, i looked and can see a CD stuck in changer, how do i release it

In most of those if you press and hold the eject button, it will force it to eject. IF not then you will have to take it in to have it looked at.

My Sony xr-c5100 car stereo wont play any cds and keeps showing a e99 fault on the display can you please tell me what that is . Thankyou

It is possible that the mechanism is jammed and so there is no loading of the carriage to the system. when the tracks are selected please try and hear if there is noise of the loading of the CD. If not there is a failure of the drive, failure of the loading section both of which needs a mechanical check within.
Please also have the optical head cleaned.

When I push cd on the stereo E99 flashes. what does E 99 mean?

The E99 error message is something to do with being unable to read the CD correctly.

There is not a lot you can do apart from making sure that there is only 1 CD in the tray and it is seated correctly and the lasar lens is not dirty.

This lens can be cleaned using a cotton bud dipped in Iso-Propyl alcohol or by buying a cleaning CD...which is a CD with bristles in it. This is coated in cleaner and allowed to spin inside the unit.

These items can be obtained off Ebay.

The above usually cures around 70% of problems.

Won't play

Only one of two things. either a bad cartridge or your transport has given up. Slide open the cartridge door and look for a small inset dimple below the cartridge, it's a reset. push it with a ball point pen and hold for 3 seconds, the unit will reset. if you have another cartridge try it, if not, go to any car audio dealer that sells sony and see if you can try one of theirs to try. Also, these units are notorious for scratching CD's. If you have had the same discs in there for a while pull them out and observe the scratches in the discs. You can improve their ability to be played by using liquid car wax on the disc itself (just a dab is all it takes) and wipe clean with a microfiber towel. Hope this helps. If not, it needs to be serviced by a Sony service ctr. They will put a new transport in it. $100-$150 repair.
