Re: what does toc err mean?

TOC is table of contents. Typically if its on a recorded cd try burning a cd from antoher computer and try it, if it works its most likely that your burner or software or ccd's your using are bad. Also is it a MP3 disc your trying to play? If so then you MUST burn it as a MP3 cd. You cant just burn MP3's to a CD and it read them. If this is the case thats why you are getting the TOC error because its not writing to the CD whats on the CD on the TOC area of the disc.

Toc err. And 05 when Trying to play CD .

Are they commercially made CDs or something someone made themselves?The commercially made ones - especially older ones may not have confirming ToCs. Home-made ones most likely don't have ToC - unless they were done with pretty sophisticated software. Some Car CD players have settings to ignor or display ToC, check your user manual or the manufacturer's web site.

When I put a CD in i get a response as TOC ERR, but the radio works. No CD or MP3 works. Where do I take it for service in Hyderabad.

TOC error is not an error with the radio - it is telling you that a speaker is blown - or speakers wires are touching ground.

Inspect your speakers and wiring before sending out the unit.

TOC is Table of contents, sounds like you have a dirty CD or
the lens needs to be cleaned. Take it in to a professional to
have him clean it. Good Luck

Kenwood KDC-MP528 CD TOC ERR

Every one of those Kenwoods that I have fixed with that error needed the laser pick up replaced. so there is no easy fix for it.

If you have tried several disc's and they all have a TOC err, and you know the disc's are in decent condition, then you will need the pick up replaced.

First try cleaning the disc you are using. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel, it works great at getting fingerprints and other stuff off the disc without scratching the disc. A bad fingerprint or a bad scratch right at the innermost part of the disc (where the TOC is located) will cause any CD player to not read the TOC, producing a TOC ERROR. you never know, you might get lucky.

this is caused from the pickup needing to be cleaned(lazer) remove deck remove small phillips screw on top plate use a damp q-tip (alcohal) gently rub the lazer top with the q-tip allow to dry aprox 10min reasemble and enjoy. Also make sure u don't need a security code for your radio before u unhook the power plug!!!!

Toc code keeps comeing up on my kenwood kdc x5589

Hi, toc error means that the laser is struggling to read the Table of Contents which tells the unit where all the information is on the disc, it may be something as simple as the lens needs cleaning or something as complicated as the laser needs replacing, but you could try running a cd disc cleaner through it first. Good luck......

Toc error

toc error means "table of contents" error... means the player is unable to read the disc at all. May have a dirty focal lense to laser. clean gently with some windex on a cotton wool bud. It may be a faulty spindle motor that spins the disc. the bearings get worn or uneven and do not allow for disc reading to be successful. a check for this is a drop of oil to the bearing. It may then start to read discs, but will still require the motor to be replaced. . Check for the above... but if there is more required, take it to a Kenwood 'Agent... it may need a laser change

KDC-MP228 cd no play w/ codes

Gave up on it and bought a pioneer. Kenwood said to take it in to a service center. The service center would have cost me more than the crappy stereo.
