Re: Error message

Check and see if there is a fuse on the back of the unit if so check it to make sure that it is not blown. Also make sure that it is at least a 25 - 30amp fuse. If that is not it the make sure you have the power wires hooked up right. See a Er-05 message means that the power that that unit needs is not there. So it will not read all cd's. It takes more power to read a burner than a normal cd. Hopefully this helps

CD player displays error code: ER-1

The ER-1 code signifies an unknown error. Try cleaning the player itself, as well as cleaning the individual CD's prior to inserting them.

If that doesn't remedy the issue, ask for further help.

Error 01 is normally on most machines to say it cannot read the discs. Could be dirty laser or a defective one. Must open to make better diagnosis.

Cd read e-05

Well E-05 error code on Kenwoods is "the cd is upside down" So either the disc is upside down or there is a problem and the Kenwood unit thinks it is upside down.

Displays ER-3:

According to the manual er-3 is a "Servo error or the disc is in upside down". I wish i were kidding but that is what the manual says.

When I try to play a C.D. on my system it gives me the following information. FRMTREAD, Error 15. What does this mean and what do I do to correct this problem? My system is a DEH2000MP S.N....

Consult your owner's manual for error codes. You have a disk/disk reader problem. A similar model Pioneer Manual indicates FRMTREAD as what is displayed while reading a disk. Error 15 equates to "The inserted disk does not contain any data". If this occurs with multiple disks, try the disks in a known good cd player. If they work there, it is likely a reader problem (alignment, bad reader, etc.) which would likely not be worth repairing or replacing in that unit.

Won't play CDs

in the manual it says that error 12 could be scrached disc or dirty disc the action it says to take is to clean or replace the disc(s). the last thing error 12 could mean is mechanical error, actions for that is to turn your key to the off position and wait for the power to turn off and when it does turn it back on and see if it works, if none of these work then i suggest that your player needs replacing. hope this works for you
