Re: upset!

This cd changer is done. Mine had the same problem I took it apart trying to repair it but was unsuccessful. I fortunatly found one that was similar at a garage sale and swaped the insides out. It works now... But for how long.

My cd runs but will not play the cd

Quite common problem. Repair it or replace your player if repair cost is too high.
Personally, I stopped using CD players time ago: I use a mp3 player.

Hi, my sony changer control audio master wx-c580r doesn't want to play CDRs, any reason why?

On the player there must be the loge CD-R compatible. If not, it wont play CD-r disks.
Normal CD's have a metallic reflector layer, giving a high contrast. CD-r disks have a dye, that will be changed in colour by a laser, giving a lesser contrast. When the laser and detectors in the player is not capable of reading the lesser contrast they can't play CD-R disks. Most older players can't. Sony is one of the manufacturers who deliberately kept there players incompatible with CD-r disk the longest.

I have a 1999 dodge neon and i don't think it is playing burned CD's. do you think it was maybe a low quality CD?? or are those CD Players not supposed to from that year?? I really need to know because if...

Some players won't play CD's that are not "finalized" or are the "Music CD" type. Try burning CD's that are "Music CD's" They cost more and are harder to find. If those work, then it is a problem with the feeble attempts at copy protection that was done years ago. No solution then other than to use Music CD's when copying and burning.

Car CD player plays but has no sound

Does your car have a premium sound system? Assuming that your cd deck is fine, try connecting your remote turn on wire from the sony to the corresponding wire on the car(if you bought a wiring harness, just match colors). Also some chryslers used a ground to turn on the amps.. a black wire with a female connector as well as a heavy ground ribbon cable... connect those 2 AND the ground to your stereo to enable the amplifiers.

My Pioneer DEH-P835R Cd Player will play my cd but wont eject

Check in the front and you should see a small hole thats about the same diameter as a paper clip. Open up a paperclip to a straight 2 inches and poke it through the hole. It should release the door so you can get it open or at least seat the cd if thats whats making it not open.

I have an '03 Explorer with the 6 disc changer. It does the same thing. Many times, you can set the radio to "FM1" and hold down buttons 3 and 6 on the radio. This will put the unit into self diagnostic mode. After it runs the diag., turn off the ignition and remove the key for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes it takes a couple times but it always works on mine.

CD Player in Car

You may have it set to random. There should be a button on there that lets you choose what you want like menu and such things like that. If that is not one of the options then enless you want to not hear your songs in order then you need to get a new one. If you can't find any of those buttons on there and you need more assistance please send me a message and I will be glad to try and help you out! Thanks!
