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.

My Tivoli CD player is ejecting cd's. Those it does accept play badly and jump. I am trying to insert a CD cleaner, but this gets ejected as well!!! Help!!


If it is under warranty simpyl return it to get it repaired.

It seems either there is something stuck inside what makes it think there is already a CD inside or your eject button is stuck internally. If not under warranty and you're a bit handy, try to open it and see if there is anything inside the CD area that makes it eject CD's or if one of the small wires connected to your eject button is loose or if there is a shortcut inside.

When I try to eject my music CD, the display says "Lock" and the CD will not eject.


I turned the player off, then while holding down the STOP button, I pressed the power button. The player made a click noise, but it did not turn on. It must have been resetting or unlocking the player because .... Then, I let go of the STOP button and turned the player on. I was then able to eject the CD.

I have a Denon RCD M33. It will turn on no problem but as soon as I press the eject button so that I can insert a CD it turns itself off.


I had to press all the eject, play and stop buttons simultaneously whilst at the same time pressing the on button.
