Alright, So clenaing the CD didnt work did it? The radio works but not the CD player.

I have a Hyundai Tiburon that does the same thing, It also has difficulty playing burned CD's even though it says it can play the different formats.

What I have discovered and may be your case, is that certain CD's, such as the ones that are used to burn music, arent all the same quality. I purchased some of those colored blue,yellow,black and red CDs and burned music on them, but they would skip and not play in my car player.

I ended up tossing them and using memorex or another better brand specifically made for burning music and had better results.

The problem is in the Laser itself and cleaning it a bunch of times rarely wokrs as being dirty isnt the problem.

Mine is a Kenwood Audio CD deck and is only 3 years old as is the car, yet I have trouble playing regualr MP3's, burned CDs and even regular store baught CD's

The Car manufacturer bassically pays to use the Brand name on the face plate off the audio system but is not really of the same quality. Its a factory player that just plane sux.

Im guessing this is the case with yours as well.

My speakers said Kenwood also, but when I took the screens off, ther just basic made in china junk speakers.

Yours, like mine, are probably just paid for brand names used to sell the vehicle.

Your CD Deck has probably busted the laser lense. by this i meant that there are two hair thin copper wires that support the lense between two magnets and if one of them pops or stretches do to excessive heat, bye-bye CD player.

The other problem is that the CD player is probably not covered under the cars warranty but under its own, and its probably expired already like mine.

Your options.

Buy a really good one and have it installed at the same time ( saves time and money). This is provided the vehicle is worth it or you plan on having it for a long time.

Or you can settle for just the radio.

Most none franchise audio installer will put in a deck for you for around $50 or so, You providing the CD player deck of course.

You can go to a retailer like Best Best Buy and purchase one and alot of times, they will throw in free installation if you spend over a certain amount.

ALso, Its after the holidays, ask them if they have any Open box items.

I got a $160 Infinite Sub for $80 and a $180 Car CDplayer Deck for $90 because some one purchase and returned. The box was opened but the items where still wrapped inside and had the manufacturers warrany. Great deal.


Its also better to get some one to install it for you like Best buy, because if they mess up your car doing it, they get to pay for it, if you do it and mess up, Your stuck with it.

Hope this info is at least helpful
Good luck

Hello, and welcome to FixYa.
I will do my best to try to assist you with your problem.
As you have already observed, some of the solutions are not going to solve your problem. What you have, in reality, is a mis-aligned laser head. There is no dust on the lens, no CD cleaner is going to fix it, there are no loose wires. You have one option to attempt to rectify your situation: Remove the radio from the dash, and unplug all of the wiring connectors that are located on the back side of the unit. Then, replug in all of the wiring connectors. The unit should activate and reset itself to its zero point. The discs may then play. If not, the laser head needs to be manually adjusted, and this cannot be done by anyone other than an experienced technician.

The laser is mis-aligned. It will not read the CD until you have it aligned by a professional.
It is a repair that, unfortunately, is not a end-user fix.
Your radio requires servicing.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

N most cases a CD player will reject CD's for the same reason: The CD isn't reading the disk. That could be from the wrong file type of the data written on the disk which your CD player wasn't designed to play, the lack of a TOC (table of contents) or the disk wasn't closed when it was burned on a computer, providing a TOC. 

The other possible causes could be scratches on the disk to heavy for the laser to get a lock, the laser itself not focusing or you've put the disk into the CD player upside down (labels up). 
or the other major reason of cd gettting automatically ejected is due to the door assembly got faulty as its sensor is bent and the gears which moves the door .OPEN/CLOSE is got faulty.

The cd player is not "sucking" the cd in all the way. I just had this problem with a stereo in my nissan. The only way to fix this is to try to clean out the head unit or have a new one installed

    As I am looking at the other solutions i feel i have to say that if you cannot get a cd to play then running a cd laser cleaner probably won't help. If you want to clean out the inside of the unit, you will first have to remove it from the vehicle and disassemble the stereo and clean it out.

It might be power supply problem, one wiring coming to player is loose. Then you insert disk it gets contact but looses it again.
Try to push whole thing towards dash and try again. If it helps check for wiring. If not try to use lens cleaner.
Good Luck

CD cleaner is normal CD with little brush on it to clean lens when CD spins.

That is because of a dirty or defective lens.

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

You do not have to disassemble te unit to use a cd cleaner.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:


How to Clean the Laser Pickup Lens on your DVD Player


How to safely clean a DVD lens?


Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?

The page listed are for DVD, but the procedure is the same on a car stereo CD unit, also the lens looks the same.

How can I eject stuck CDs from CD player 2006 toyota camry grande?


Isn't there a security code needed to reset the stereo after a battery change? The Stereo thinks it has been stolen. See your Manual and see your nearest Toyota dealer. Or use a tweezers to reach in and pull out the stuck CD. And clean the rollers with alcohol.

How can I eject stuck 3 CDs from CD player + GPS 2006 toyota camry grande?


there is small pinhole on the front of the player, you need to push thin stiff wire (paper clip straightened up will do) and this will mechanically release lock on the players doors, retract the doors fully and remove the dvd's.

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V stopped working properly. It seems to have frozen up, but resetting it doesn't get it working again. When I reset by pushing the power button for 10 seconds, it flashes HELLO 15...


My unit is doing exactly the same thing. I've tried reloading the firmware, but it never appears to enter the First Time Setup. To load the CD I had to remove the cover, (disconnect the power) and manually eject the DVD tray. With the cover off, look on the side of the DVD. There is a square hole, directly above the screw that attaches the DVD to the chassis. Insert a stiff rod and push. The DVD tray will open. This is how I loaded the firmware CD. This all started after I rescanned the tuner and then did a manual channel edit. While trying to edit the channels, the unit stopped tuning and ended up in its current state.

Car CD player won't load Cd's - Peugeot 306


Yeah, the sensor that detects the presence of the disc is knackered - probably broken off. The eject will always eject the disc. Just press the button with no disc and you will hear it try. Look at ebay for a replacement - theyre dirt cheap!

Jvc kd-sx770 car stereo--radio works, but cd player doesn't


Hello beeswing70,

The player is recognizing that a CD has been inserted but is not able to read it.

Sometimes the lens assembly becomes contaminated and obscures the laser. I'd try using a commercial "lens cleaning CD" two or three times and then try a CD again. These lens cleaning CD's are widely available. If cleaning does not help, the player need professional service.

Hope this helps.

CD -not working


Try this: Remove the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery termional and see if the CD player "resets" itself. This sometimes works for me.

Shortly after this happened to me, the whole faceplate stopped lighting up. Then all buttons but the power button worked. From what I'm seeing I feel that this is from bad capacitor, but I don't have the time to rip it apart right now. Till then, it's a cheap Alpine MP3 player.

Toyota dashboard CD player won't eject


I had this say problem with my 2000 solara. Here is the fix, remove one of the car battery terminals for a couple of mins (3-4mins). The reattach the battery terminal back. This would make your cd player and car clock reset. once you start your car you should be able to eject the cds. You'll just need to reprogram all your preset radio station. Hope it helps
