Question about Clarion DB245 CD Player

1 Answer

Disc won't insert properly

When I try to insert a disc, unless I use something to physically push the disc in, it doesn't insert all the way. It will pull it in to where it's not visible but doesn't click into place. It then ejects the disc. If I push the disc in using something, it will take it all the way in until it clicks, and it works fine.

My Valor DV-169 cannot read DVD, it says bad disc. Is there a fix for this or is the DVD player toast?

Error6 and error3 are displayed when cd is put in dx515

Error 3 is due to a dirty or scratched disc and error 6 is disc inserted upside down. First thing to try would be a different disc as it sounds like that one is quite damaged. If this doesn't work then you can try a software reset on the unit. The reset button is located behind the face plate on the right hand side and needs a pen or something sharp to push it in. The button needs to be held in for a good few seconds. Pressing the reset button will mean that you will lose all saved data, e.g radio stations and audio settings. Cheers, Dan

Cd error

This is probably as a result of you inserting a disc that is not compatible with the player. In some cases, if you have been using it for a long time, the lens might have grown weak and so may need replacement.
If you try to clean the surface of the disc and you try some other discs but receive the same error, then you can confirm that the problem is coming from the player.
On the other hand, if after cleaning the surface of the disc and trying some other discs and they work, then the disc is most probably faulty.
If the case happens to be that the player is faulty, you have no other option than to see a repairer who would help you diagnose the player properly and replace or repair it if the need arises.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa.

Alpine cda7998 disc error

Try cleaning the lens first, if you can take the top off and are able to see the lens, using a cotton swab soaked in 91% alcohol wet the lens, don't rub it, then blow it off with computer duster. Or try a cd based lens cleaner (Radio Shack).

Won't let me insert a disc

Try cleaning the unit with a laser lens cleaner disc and see if this helps at all. If not it sounds like your laser assembly may have failed.

Boss Marine CD player

It could mean many things: the disc is inserted upside down, the disc is too scratched to play, too dirty to play, there might be condensation on the lens, mechanical failure, the list goes on. If the disc is fine and inserted the correct way, and the error code keeps appearing, it typically indicates mechanical failure and that the CD player will need new parts and/or alignment to properly work again. I would suggest taking it to an authorized repair center.
