SOURCE: Inoperable CD changer

Hi the alpine/merc/bmw cd changer all seam to suffer with the same problem, they say no disc, or no mag try firmly hitting the mag with the handle of a screw driver. the loadinga arm, tends to get stuck. you could try using some grease on the arms, and levers, white spray gease works best. but dont forget to cover the laser beforehand, you dont want grease on it :) Mark

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 30 6-cd changer magazine manual release?

hi, you can release the magazine by inserting a small flat head screwdriver in the slot and pushing the lever towards the back of the unit, this will release the cd but only if ther is not one stuck in the player as it will remain halfway between the mag and the cdplayer. don't force it to comae out. remember to obviously have the dorr to the player open before you try this.

SOURCE: I receive error msg and cant eject magazine

The magazine in our Sony CD player would not eject. I tried pressing two buttons at the same time etc., with no result. I uplugged the player, removed the screws that hold the black metal cover on and took off the cover (pull the metal up, out and away at the back bottom sides, then slide it back to release the lip from under the front pane.) Looked down inside and saw the problem, a CD disc extended about 1/2 inch from the magazine, blocking ejection. I pushed the extended edge of the disc back into the magazine with the tip of a kitchen knife. Plugged the player back in, pushed power and then the eject button, and the magazine ejected. Replaced the metal cover and it works fine. If it won't eject again I know what to do. Be sure to unplug before you work, you don't need an electrical shock.
All the best, Sonia Murray

No power to the disc changer, how do I manually eject the magazine

There is a manual eject slot on the side of the CD changer. You will need a small flat head screwdriver or a pry tool to insert into the slot.

Open top cover, if the empty magazine was left inside the cd trays it can slide out into the playing area and jam the unit, check it like that anyhow. Sometimes you can see a small metal tab to release the magazine.

However Error1 means Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
And NO CD.CD error message means No CD in magazine or no magazine in CD Changer.

To fix the problem, disconnect the CD changer.
take off the top plastic slide cover,
with a small screwdriver slowly move the gearing so that the CD disc holder will move back to the load - unload position.
Pop out the CD holder.
Replace unit, reconnect the optic and power lead, switch on radio and the unit will work again.
grease the moving parts with light lubricant.

Thanks for contacting

Can't eject cd magazine - E-99 error message

I had the same problem. I opened up the unit and found out that there is a plastic gear that moves the loader. When worn the loader can not load tha magazines nor change cd's. I replaced the gear and the cd autochanger worked fine.

My local Lincoln Dealership wanted to dismount the actual Clarion CD changer (I thought, and unfortunately reported to you, that the CD changer manufacturer was the same as the radio/cassettee unit that is installed in my dash, Alpine) from my 99 Town Car and ship the unit out for repair for a minimum of $130.00. Instead, I went to a local Radio Shack franchise who installs/repairs car electronic audio/video systems and they: dismounted the unit from the trunk; took the dismounted unit to their workbench; removed all the housing, etc. and finally were able to manually extract the fully populated 6 CD magazine stuck within the CD changer. Additional efforts (including inserting my spare magazine into the CD changer while it was on the tech's work bench) to determine exactly why the magazine would not eject while the unit was connected via the cabling to the car's power, etc. were not productive. So I now have a totally unassembled non-functioning CD changer on my hands. The "CDEJ Error" on the LED area in the dash when the eject buttoon on the CD changer is pushed.still persists. The technician said that it would be a waste of his time and my money to re-assemble the parts of the CD changer. He believes that the motor on the unit has been burned up.

So I am now checking with all the local auto parts salvage yards (we used to call them junk yards) to see if anyone has a usable Clarion CD changer for a 1999 Lincoln Town Car available that would be plug compatible with my existing Alpine factory installed Premium CD/Cassette audio system and the former factory installed trunk mounted Clarion CD changer. The Radio Shack franchise technician has already checked with the Clarion factory people and they iindicated that they no longer have my Town Car installed CD changer model available, new, used, refurbished or otherwise.

For what it's worth, here are the part numbers and other potentially important data that appear on the "cage"/sheet metal/housing that surrounds the working parts of the CD changer itself:

Assembly Part Number: F8VF-18C849-AE

Part Number (presumably the "cage"?): F8VF-18C830-AE

Date Code: 0998

Serial Number: 0201832

Mounting Orientation: Vertical

System Revision Level: 9.2

So it looks like I may have a potentially very expensive replacement of my whole audio system on my hands. I have been quite happy with my somewhat "obsolete" audio system and I have a very large collection of CDs which I migrate between my Sony 300 CD CDP-CX350 Mega Changer installed in my entertainment center, my car Cd changer and my Sony CD/Cassette player boom box in my master bedroom.

It was suggested to me that if I have to replace the radio/cd/cassette unit installed in the dash of my Town Car that I should consider a replacement model that offers a port to receive Ipod programming as a source of music.

So things have gotten somewhat complicated since the first instance of the Cd magazine not ejecting from the Clarion CD change mounted in the trunk of my car.

Maybe someone out there on your knowledge base knows where I can acquire a used Clarion model CD changer compatible with my car's setup at a reasonable price.

IDC A09 installed in Fiat Punto

After incorrectly entering the code 3 times, the unit locks for 60 minutes. To clear it, leave it connected to the head unit and the radio switched on for an hour. After that, switch the radio off, disconnect and reconnect the cd changer, and enter the correct code.

hi the A09 has to be married to the head unit, unless your model is the A09 PSA.
