disconnect the power supply for a moment and reconnect...then try a eject - again. I think the "fo" is a format error...burnin CD's at home are we - or possibly using CD cleaning discs?

It sounds like your Rover dosn't have MP3 capabilities. You will have to use standard audio CD format (not data/MP3 format). You will only be able to burn about 15-20 songs but they will play in any cd player.

  • I have see so much of this problem from these players. When you get so many errors for this CD player/changer the unit is done. Dealers stock these by the hundreds to warranty out. Poor quality and poor quality control.

  • Some people, very few, have had success with removing the radio and removing the connectors for a few minutes and then reconnecting. This may reset the radio and while on occasion this has worked it is a rarity as the problem is due to component defects deep inside the unit.

  • Those that opted to send the radio that were not covered by a warranty often payed $300 - $400usd for the repair. The messed up thing is that despite thousands of these needing replaced they were never recalled and they should have been.

  1. Your choices are to have it replaced under warranty if still under warranty.
  2. Pay the dealership to install a new one for you.
  3. Send the one you have into Ford.
  4. Buy an aftermarket CD player/changer

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYA.

I have a Pioneer AVH-P4900, I bought the video bypass for mine, once I did that I had the same problem. I tried pressing buttons, and the V.Adj button returned the screen back to my normal screen playing my disc. It might happen again, but I think it's it's way of a "screensaver ". Hope this helps to patch this up for ya.

CD not working. Error 12 message

error 12 is a read problem.
Most of the time it is an alignemt problem with the laser.
Sometimes it can be the mechanism, or vary rarely a dirty laser lense, or disc.

This error message merely means that it cannot play the disc. It is usually due to the laser diode inside the optical pickup head is weak, misaligned, or defective. But, it could also mean the tracking and focus adjustments have been jarred too far out. Or, it could be mean the servo controller for the head and motor drive has gone bad. Anything that prevents the system from reading the digital information on the surface of the disc will bring up the error code.

So, you must either have it serviced to find out the cause - or just replace it. This model is no longer current but there are many from Pioneer and others that could be an equivalent unit.
