Good evening, my cd player just stopped working in my expedition. It keeps saying cd error. Even when i try to eject the cd it says the same thing or when i swith cd's. Its a factory 6 cd changer...

I had this happen in my old dodge stratus. My trick to remove cd's was when you stopped or parked the car turn vehicle off and hit the eject button and it will usually eject the disc. remove all discs and then install them again when car is parked and not moving as vibration and bumps while driving can sometimes miss align the disc in the player. Sometimes when the stereo didn't work at all I disconnected the battery and it would reset and work. If this doesn't work it may be broken. Good Luck.

Some Car CD players have suspensions which are filled with some liquid (semi-solid). It is quite likely that these suspensions are damaged.

Turns off over bump. when we go over even the slightest bump it will say "see you" as in if your turning it off. it just one day started doing this.

The problem is the rotary encoder (volume knob) has a small internal insulator the breaks and allows contact. I repaired mine by replacing the component with one from Newark electronics, part # 02J2846, it is a Bourns rotary encoder part# PEC11-4215F-S0024. Simple solder skills and care are all that are needed and i think it is a slightly more durable component.

It will not play the dvd

I was wondering if you get the "No Disc" indicator on the screen when this happens. Also, can you hear the disc spin up?
Could try a disc cleaner that has the little brushes. It will clean the laser lens. If there is the slightest bit of dust on it in just the right spot, it wont play any disc.

My cds keep jumping when i go over road bumps

If this is a self installed system, make sure you mount the little strip of metal they provide, to the back of the stereo. This can sometimes be a daunting task, but if the back is not secure, the cd player will jump violently when you hit a bump.

Audi concert car stereo-cd player stops and jumps tracks?

If its the original radio most likely what happened is the radio laser is out of alignment. Inside the radio is a small laser that reads the data off the CD. If you ever go over speed bumps to fast or hit potholes that laser eventually gets knocked out of alignment. If its under warranty than it would be no problem getting fixed otherwise your really just better off getting a new one.

Battery went dead alpine cd stop working

Sometimes when you jump off a truck the CD player fuse will blow because it was trying to turn on each time you turned over the engine. Check all the fuses.
