I have just purchased a 52 plate 307 and there was a CD stuck in the player. I have removed this but it still looks for a disc in slot 1 (green lights flashes) then all 5 lights start flashing orange. I am assured by the seller that the cd player works but I can't work out what the problem is. Why are all five lights flashing orange and what do I have to do to fix it?
There are a few variations of this model eg; IDCA09,IDCA04,Fiat & aftermarket units.As already stated these models do suffer from mechanism faults quite a lot.This is due mostly to the complexity of the mechanics.The flashing lights are a classic symptom of a jammed or broken part of the mechanism.They can however be repaired by certain car audio repair centres here in the UK.I'm afraid unless you know what you're doing then just by stripping the mechanism down is unlikely to cure the faults than can occur.

Anything is possible with a bit of fore thought ,take old one out then try to fit the new one the wiring plugs should be the same for two of them but the third one will work the changer so leave that disconnected

Hi, I know this is an old post, but I'll reply, so that other readers may get the benefit of my answer.
2004 was the year that Peugeot/Citroen changed from VAN bus to CAN bus wiring on their stereo's. If your car is before or early 2004 you will need the IDC-A09 blaupunkt in dash changer, which should just plug in and work straight away.
However, If your car is later 2004 onwards you will need the IDC-A04 Blaupunkt changer which will plug in and power up, but will not work properly untill you go to a peugeot dealer and they hook up some diagnostic software to tell the car a changer has been added. Both the IDC-A04 and A09 changers look identical.
I would say that you got the wrong changer, as the IDC-A09 changers in pre/early 2004 should just plug in and work.
Remember: Pre 2004 cars need IDC-A09 (plug and play) and Post 2004 cars need IDC-A04 changer (get pug dealer to reprogram cars computer)...its a costly mistake if you bought the wrong one!
I had the same problem with my 2002 307SW.
I read on another forum to switch ignition off, remove CD changer from dash and disconnect. It then told me to remove the lid from the case unscrewing the screws marke 1 to 5 then remove the Cd's. The only problem with this is you need a special size 'star' driver bit which i did not have at home and could not unscrew them. What i did was to use a terminal screwdriver in the 2 larger screws that fasten the front plastic cover on the unit. Once I had done that I could remove the CD's.
I then connected the changer back up and inserted it back into the dash. I then powered the radio back up anf loaded a CD and the problem had gone away so I loaded the 5 CD slots and everything works fine now.
