SOURCE: CD magazine trapped in Ford CD changer, no power to release

there is a way to get it working with the ford radio as long as the ford radio is cd changer compatible. You can purchase an adaptor from a dealer of autoleads. They also have a website. were you can find out if its compatible and what lead you need. As far as i can remember with the jvc changers there is a seperate lead for power for a changer which you have to earth to the body of the car aswell have you got this

SOURCE: My dealer installed Saab CD changer is not functioning properly.

The unit is having internal firmware problem. It may be off track or have a bad capacitor. You will need to dismantle to cover to receive your cd tray. There may also be a problem with the lens.

SOURCE: 5 disk cd changer is flashing and cannot select

I also had this problem, but found the solution here...
Give it a good whack...
I did it, and then hit the eject button and the CD came right out. After that, it worked just as it should.

SOURCE: ford edge 6 disk cd changer cd error will not

According to the tow truck that just came to pick up my Edge, the cd player killed the battery. He jumped it, turned the radio on and said to let the car run for at least 20 minutes. He says that if you leave the radio ON when you turn the car OFF, it should correct itself. Good luck.

The disk tray will not open, and after a brief time the word ERROR appears in the display window. Is there some power on button combinations to reset the processor?

The fault is with its disc loading mechanism. Contact any service technician. Disk is not loading properly into the system. A loose loading belt, or a broken gear wheel can be the cause.

Dodge neon w/ cassette player. bought cd changer from salvage yard that was an option for the '02 Neon. Installed it and only have flashing lights on it. How can I get it to play ? Thanks PS: dodge dealer...

i have a 4 disk changer that had flashing error lights, i took the 3 screws off the top, 4 out the front sides that hold in the face. and then removed the 4 micro screws fron the top shiny metal cover on the front inside. this allowed me access to the internal disks that were inside. i removed them all and put it all back together. it seems that when i had work done to my car they had disconected the battery and when this was done the changer reset with disks inside still. one of them must have gotten dislodged and this is how i got the error. placed the changer back into the car and to my surprise it worked like new again. there was nothing on the forums or any search to help me out so i decided to repair myself. the worst i could do was find that there was nothing i could do and buy a new one. i just saved myself 100 dollars. hope you have the same luck

2001 grand cherokee disk changer

Does it still say disk error if you change disks?
If so, first guess would be that either a disk is inserted upside down in it's slot or the disk is too scratched up for the player to read.
But if it was playing that disk when you shut the engine off and said disk error when you cranked up again, it could be a fault in the player.
Sometimes CD player "eyes" can get dirty too. I don't know if this is your fix, but I hope it helps a little.

Mech Comm Error

sounds like they may have forgotten to take out transit plugs from radio which holds cd mechanism in place when shipping unless you got a new radio thats a dud? but that may also mean dealer didnt check operation of new unit after replacement if replaced which is what usually needs to be done when this error message comes up

6 disk cd player error

This is a part failure in the mechanism that loads and ejects the disk, there are no repair manuals avail to either the tech or the consumer, the only place that the factory gives this info and parts to are factory authorized repair stations, bottom line you must pull the deck and contact a Ford dealer in your area for location of the nearest factory repair station. I was dealer tech for 20 years and that is how it is done.
