Re: will not take cd

I suggest you take the player to an experienced technician to find out where the spring goes. If you want to try yourself, a careful visual inspection should reveal where it came from, although a magnifying glass may be needed. It is also possible that the spring caused damage to the electronics, in which case a technician will be needed.

Cd player will not accept cds

Im a retired installer so let me talk u thru this. If you can disconnect the power plug from back of unit, pull it out give it a few seconds, plug it back in. U should hear a mech. Noise( that's the CD mech loading. If you don't hear any noise, u probly have a def. Unit. It is also a chance u have a cd already loaded and stuck. If u look carefully u can see a disc in it. The other issue could be a power issue on your yellow wire. Last but not least, not knowing the history, your unit mite be binding. Hope that helps

Some Panasonic stereo's don't like non shop bought, home burnt discs (they are recorded at a different level) so try new discs plus run a CD laser cleaner through your system.

The cd will not work just ejects disc ?

You need to pull the unit out of the dash and pop the top and manually release the disc. If you don't have the keys for the side tabs (if it's not Iso-mounted) check a local car audio shop. They generally can be very helpful. Hope this helps. If your not sure how, post a comment with the make and model car and I can help you further.

Road Gear cd player says er07 or er09.

Hey Rachelle.. Sorry to say, but Road Gear is an off brand, and they don't hold up well at all. It sounds to me like the laser it's self has gone bad, and unfortunately not worth fixing.

If you want an inexpensive cd player that will last for a while I recomend Kenwood KDC138 they retail for arround $90, and do a decent job. Nothing fancy, but they do have a front input for MP3 player, or any aux source.

VW Beetle CD Player Stopped Working

Just had the same problem. It would say Track 63, and nothing would work. We have a 2001 Beetle, and on a road trip, it stopped working while we were driving and listening to CDs.

From another post, someone suggested removing the negative cable from the battery post. Tried this and it still did not help. However, I noticed that the cable would not tighten as I would expect. All cables are very clean, but I needed to push the cable further down before tightening. Ended up lightly tapping it down on the post with a small hammer, then tightening. Well, after that, all worked. Also noticed that the beep when locking the car was louder.

Hope this helps.

Won't read mp3 and wma cds

The discs were not "finalized" or "closed" - place the cd's back on your computer cd-rom drive and search the help file of your CD burning software and search for "closing disc" or "finalizing disc." Some programs will allow you to close or finalize after you have already burned them, but others (Sony SoundForge is one exmaple) will not allow it - you may have to re-burn the discs and select the option that says "close disc after finishing" (this option is usually left unchecked by default, because closing or finalizing a disc prevents you from adding any new information to the disc).

Rejecting cd's

Press the Q/I/ATT and the "sel" button at the same time with the unit off for more than 2 seconds. This will reset the entire unit (you'll have to re-program the memory stations for FM & AM). The disc should eject automatically.

Hope that helps!

Won't let me insert a disc

Try cleaning the unit with a laser lens cleaner disc and see if this helps at all. If not it sounds like your laser assembly may have failed.
