SOURCE: CD PLayer won't play CD's
Hi First of all, you must find all the screws for the top cover and remove it. Make sure the unit is not plugged in! Then, making sure that you are not touching anything inside the unit, plug it back in,put a Cd in the drawer, and watch what happens. If the drawer closes, but you can still hear a motor running, then it is a belt drive unit, and the belt is slipping, if that part is ok, listen carefully for a ticking noise, which is the laser lense going up and down trying to focus on the CD, if the disk starts to spin then the mech has closed properly, and the unit is trying to find the directory. If the unit then spins the disk for a while then ejects it, then the laser is dirty or faulty. I would suggest getting it cleaned at a shop if the lense appears dirty. ***Never look straight down at the laser lense if it is exposed on your model of CD player, it is a class 3 laser, and you will be doing some harmful home laser surgery to yourself!!!*** Hope this helps! Good Luck! P.S. When following the steps above, if you hear the ticking of the lense moving up and down, but the disk does not spin, gently spin it clockwise with your finger, if it starts to play, or finds the directory, then the spin motor is bad.

HI, either the deck assembly is jammed or, the load motor has failed. In this case, you will need to disassemble the entire set in order to retrieve this CD.
The actual loading deck(the part where the CD is located), is surrounded by a metal housing. the gear assembly is probably locked, due to this jam or failed load motor. This will also require a set of precision tools as well. if you find this a bit overwhelming, i suggest taking this unit to a local automotive audio shop. they can dissemble it and, retrieve the CD for a small price.

Hey...it's easy to fix. Open the fuse box under the hood. Find the audio fuse. Pull it out for 10-15 minutes to reset the cdplayer. Plug it back in and problem solved. If it still does not work just change the fuse. I had that problem and had to search high and low for a solution and found it
on some web site. IT WORKED...will save you $800 that Lexus charges to do the same thing.

SOURCE: not accepting cd's
I have the exact same car a 2005 Ford Focus ZX5 with a 6 disc MP3 player, when we first got the car the changer worked fine and would read all discs, after a few weeks it would kick out every disc and say that it was "bad disc", we tried buying just some office depot cleaning disc thinking it would clean the laser. This did nothing, tonight I got quite ambitious and removed the whole deck from the dash. You do this by carefully prying back the surrounding plate all the way around the heating controls and then unbolting the deck from the car. I unhooked the cabels that were running into and pulling it out. I then unscrewed all the small screws to the unit and took a look inside. As it turns out I wasn't able to find the laser eye as the changer had hidden it, so I screwed it back together and put it back in. Turned on the player and put in a disc and it played perfectly. So in the end basically unplugging it and plugging it back in did the trick. You may also have the same luck just unplugging the battery for about a minute and plugging it back rather than taking your dash apart. Hopefully that helps you since it's been 4 months since you posted this issue.
