    Have you checked the Fuse and all the connection plugs , being in the boot or Trunk ? they face damp and vibration problems .

    Cables get shaken loose and equipment gets wet ? so check for corrosion or water damage . .... Vortash

I have very gently taken a pair of needle nose pliers and grasping the edge of the cartridge that holds the disk carefully work it back into the magazine.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi I have put a cd into the changer but now cannot eject the cd, the stereo reads error 99 please advise


The CD, when inserted, became either wedged or not seated properly and the sensors dont know how to respond. Here are the codes for Kenwood.
Changer Error Codes
• E-00: Poor Cable connection.
• E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
• E-02: No Disc in magazine.
• E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
• E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
• E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
• E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

If you have a steady hand... carfully unscrew and open up the unit just far enough so you can either pull, or nudge the CD tray enough for the CD to be seated in the tray properly...
Good luck...

Error-99 shows on screen then turn system off


Error 99 is CD not up to speed. Either the CD is slipping, Defective CD, pickup is unable to read sectors and is either dirty pickup or pickup going bad.

Is it always the same CD you are playing? Is the CD smudged with finger prints or dirty? If not suspect the CD itself. This will require Repair or Replace, as E-99 is a classic malfunction & unit will need to be taken apart, "unless" there is a CD stuck in the Unit.

If you have loaded a Blank Cartridge & clicked Eject & found no extra CD, then you will need to have a Reputable Shop Repair Typically this is the Logic I.C. & / or the Servo Motor. Sometimes you can find the same Unit on E-Bay, Craigs List, etc for less than Repair

Changer Error Codes:
E-00: Poor Cable connection.
E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
E-02: No Disc in magazine.
E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

Hope this helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Code 99


e-99 indicates that there is some type of mechanical jam, the microprocessor requires reset, or the system had some major failure. try to remove power from the system for a few moments, and then reconnect. this will rest the microprocessor and possibly restore function. if there's a disc stuck in the magazine, or stuck somewhere in the loading or unloading sequence, it's sometimes possible to free this but the changer will have to be removed from the vehicle and partially disassembled.

''CDDJ ERROR'' WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PLAY VIA ALPINE CHANGER


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.

Thanks,

Tom
