Err 4 message?

Err 4 message not listed in owner's manual. Have loaded CD-music disk, but the cd tray is apparently not reading the disk, and I can't use the record function. I suspect that the CD machinery is dirty - is there some way to clean it?

the above ebay auction is a CD with a little brush built onto it. as the cd spins, it will brush across the laser and dust it off.

    well, about the only other thing you can try without opening the unit

    by a technician, is once in a while unplugging it from the wall for a few

    minutes might reset it. If this does not work then it would have to be

    serviced at a repair shop it sounds. :(

HI when i put disk in cd rom drive the computer only reads for about 3 seconds and then the message says insert a disk..my son has been burning a lot of disks lateluy and not sure why it broke so soon,only...


Loading new device-drivers will not help.
In the first few seconds, the drive is trying to read the first few blocks of data from the media, to see if it is a "data" or "music" or "blank" CD. If nothing can be read (dead laser?) then you get the "insert a disk" message.

> do I need a new unit?

Yes; spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Err message on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 10 CD changer


I had a similar problem which responded to the use of a CD cleaner disc to clean the laser lens reading the CD. The "err" messages stopped and the changer started to work as it had before. Perhaps this will correct your problem too.

CD ERR 1


Have a 2005 Freelander and the battery died. When I re-charged the battery, the CD changer had a CD ERR 1 message. Could not eject or load a CD and the radio worked. I turned off the radio and pulled off the cover on top of the CD changer. I removed the two screws that hold the frame around the CD changer. I turned the CD back on and the CD went through a test on each CD. I know this solution might not work for everyone, but it worked for me

2002 Silverado- CD played ERR message


This is not a fuse problem, it may be a dirty laser lens or a broken loading mechanism, buy a CD player cleaner disk, if that won't work you will have to pull the unit out and send it in for repair at an authorized GM electronics repair station.

Disk Stuck In DVD Machine.


Hi, You need to open the machine or at least the top cover and manually extract the CD. Under the cover and on top of the loading tray is a retaining bar held by 2-4 screws. Removing these would allow you to lift the bar and remove the CD easily. In some models/version, there might be an electronic board partially covering the tray assembly. This type of problem happens when the CD is defective, was not loaded properly, or more than 1 is inside. In some cases, it is the loading mechanism that is at fault. Still in some other models/version there is an access/pin hole below the try at the faceplate where you need to insert a straightened metal paper clip to manually push out the tray. Of course the standard precautions apply, power down, remove from the mains. If you are not comfortable on do-it-yourself, maybe you should seek the services of a qualified professional. good luck and kind regards.
