The problem with old CD Players are that they sometimes are a little fidgety when it comes to reading CDRs.
You could try burning a new CD on the lowest possible setting, say 2x or 4x.
Also try changing the CDR brand as some cheap CDRs are prone to not reading in old CD Drives.
Try using a regular CD-R (CD recordable - record only once) instead of a CD-RW (CD rewritable - rewrite multiple times). CD-RW use a different "ink" to write the data to the disc and can be re-recorded/erased a couple of times before it loses its ability to write effectively to it.
Sorry, It's not reparable. You have to change it the new one. This price is very high. If your car hasn't warranty, I suggest you, use a portable DVD-USB player with an FM trasmitter in your car. I know it isn't sounds good, but I had the same problem and I have changed the CD player to a new one (it was terrible prize, of course) and I never use CD and DVD since that time. I use mp3 -usb combo only and i haven't any problem. I hope this help.
check your wiring in your vehicle to make sure that the yellow wire from the stereo gets "constant" power. It it what keeps your stereo's memory, and powers the audio amp in the stereo. If this wire is loosing power when you shut the key off in your car, you will loose all of your settings...bass, treble, tuner, clock, and also where you left off on your CD.
Go into settings in from the menu button. using the fowrad and backward keys find the clock setting. The hours should be blinking on the clock. change using the scroll and press the scroll to change to minures. just press menu to return to the menu then go to return. Problem solved.
it sounds like you have got the permanent live and the switched ignition live the wrong way round. if you check which positive 12v supply goes off when you turn the ignition off and remove the key and connect that one to the one which stays 12v when the key is turned off and vice versa that should solve your problem
Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
im not sure if its just newer cars only or most cars but some have whats called a courtesy fuse probley located under your hood. check that fuse. easiest way to locate that fuse is just by calling plymouth and ask, another way to check to make sure if your cd player works in that car is to connect your yellow constant wire with your red power wire and see if the player works if so you could probley leave it like that but when you turn off your car you would lose all your settings and such like the time setting therefore it is not recomended, give it a try good luck
