Ford Focus zx3 2002 audio question

My 6 disc cd changer went out in the factory installed unit. I bought a replacement on ebay and put it in and it works great. However, it did not come with an owners manual. On my model 6006 which was originally in the car there was a ''clock'' button to set the clock. The newer model I installed is a 6006 E and there are three buttons: PTY - TA - MENU, nothing specifically denoting clock and I can't find clock under the menu. How do I set the clock? Also what do the PTY and TA buttons do? Hard to figure all this out with no manual.
Thanks for your help!

Alpine CHM-S620 6 Disc CD Changer Components


sounds like the changer was plugged into the antenna jack of the radio. this means that you can run it through any radio simply by sending a signal to a preset station on the radio and listening to it through tuner. the control unit ran the changer itself. you may be able to obtain replacement cables from pacparts.com

2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid CD changer jammed, one month out of warranty, dealer says $2500 to replace..., will not eject or load CDs


Take it to any local car audio shop, find out the make of the changer and chances are good that it can be fixed quickly and at a minimal cost or replaced with an aftermarket unit that will work perfectly with the factory radio for under 600 installed easily. Hope this helps

Not accepting cd's


I have the exact same car a 2005 Ford Focus ZX5 with a 6 disc MP3 player, when we first got the car the changer worked fine and would read all discs, after a few weeks it would kick out every disc and say that it was "bad disc", we tried buying just some office depot cleaning disc thinking it would clean the laser. This did nothing, tonight I got quite ambitious and removed the whole deck from the dash. You do this by carefully prying back the surrounding plate all the way around the heating controls and then unbolting the deck from the car. I unhooked the cabels that were running into and pulling it out. I then unscrewed all the small screws to the unit and took a look inside. As it turns out I wasn't able to find the laser eye as the changer had hidden it, so I screwed it back together and put it back in. Turned on the player and put in a disc and it played perfectly. So in the end basically unplugging it and plugging it back in did the trick. You may also have the same luck just unplugging the battery for about a minute and plugging it back rather than taking your dash apart. Hopefully that helps you since it's been 4 months since you posted this issue.

2005 dodge caravan rbq am-fm radio w/6 disc cd changer


Contacted local dodge dealer about my in dash 6-disc changer problem. Chrysler seems to have an "exchange" program. They will remove your existing radio, install a "factory reconditioned" unit and send yours in to be repaired and sold to someone else. The dealer told me that my CD's would EVENTUALLY be returned to me from Chrysler. The cost I was given was $265 plus sales tax for the exchange unit, and the labor to remove and reinstall. He said about a half hour labor. Compare this to the $604 for a factory new unit. Hope this helps everyone with this problem. I was told by the Service advisor that it is common for this problem.
