Becker Silverstone 6 CD changer in a '99 Mercedes C230

The changer worked great for about 6 years, then I started to get the message ''No CD changer'' and it won't work at all. Do I need to send the whole unit to be repaired or do I have a wiring problem?

SOURCE: ''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

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Suburban

The CD eject/load mechanism has failed, they do not sell repair manuals or parts for these factory units to the public, u may be able to retrieve the cd's by removing the changers cover and then any internal panels blocking the CD cassette, but the best thing to do is send it in to a GM authorized audio system repair station, let them know u want the cd's back by taping a note to the outside of the unit. Call the local dealer for a phone number and address of the nearest GM repair center near you.

Becker radio displays WAIT


to get it working again when the "WAIT" comes on it may take 10/15 minutes before the "WAIT" to go off and then i turned the volume control to the first code number, then push am/fm button to lock it in. repeat until all the code numbers are in and the radio will start normal operation. There is a code number card that comes with the radio, if you do not have it, go to the mb dealer with your vin number and they will give you the code number.
