Sony car stereo CD load fault


I've never used a resource like this before it's amazing!

My very-little used (meaning not worn-out!) Sony car CD stereo stopped working last night making a whirring noise when trying to load a new CD (it is a single-CD manual-change model). It accepts the CD and pulls it in as usual, holds it for a couple of seconds, then spits it back out with "1 LOAD" on the display, followed within 10 seconds by "RESET" then switches off. Hope someone can help!

Depending on the make of the stereo it will have a 2 piece casing which will allow you to take one part off , normally the lid by removing a couple of small screws or the lid maybe even clipped onto the lower case. Once the lid is off you should be able to get the cd out. If the stereo is security coded do not disconnet it from the electric supply unless you have the code!

i was playing around with one of those code generators just the other day and after some messing around it turned out the code to enter was the last four digits of the number below the barcode; if there are 2 barcodes, use the bottom one

Don't know if you have an external antenna or one mounted in windshield but you should be able to find the coaxial heading towards the back of the radio. Make sure that it is plugged into the radio.

Hi, I can't get the magazine out and it reads CD ERROR on the stereo. i've tried to eject it using the button and can hear it making noises as though it is trying but it doesn't come out. i...

It seems so that the disc or the loading mechanism has jammed . Sometimes CD's which have labels or even warped ones( spurious types) can be stuck up as it will not move freely in loading thereby getting stuck in the mechanism.
Also sometimes the loading motor can slip on the pulley with a higher torque or the gear or belt can slip off-- since you can hear the noise when eject is pressed.
The best way is to remove power, open the covers and use a soft tool like a screw driver to push the struck up disc or manually rotate the gears to release the loading and thereby eject the tray out. Now inspect all the disc before you put then back inside as one of them is a suspect.

My Sony xr-c5100 car stereo wont play any cds and keeps showing a e99 fault on the display can you please tell me what that is . Thankyou

It is possible that the mechanism is jammed and so there is no loading of the carriage to the system. when the tracks are selected please try and hear if there is noise of the loading of the CD. If not there is a failure of the drive, failure of the loading section both of which needs a mechanical check within.
Please also have the optical head cleaned.

Intermittent error code E-04 - CD won't play

I looked it up at say E-04 means there is a problem with the CD changer(real helpful huh).It says you can press the reset button to reset your CD changer,but you will lose all memory and have to re-program it.The diagram looks like it has a removable faceplate?It is under there.Use a fine point to press it like a pencil.There is an * though and it says CDC-X517M only though.It also is basically the only resolution they give.They say if that doesn't work,you have to send it to an authorized AIWA center.
You may need PDF to look at the page.If yo do not have it,it is a free download,just google for it.I did it and you do not get ads popping up everywhere nor is it harmful. 0 184607067 Good luck!

No longer have the cd changer hooked up to a stereo, need to know how to get the cds out w/out a power cable

There is a "compulsory eject hole" on the left side of the changer. Inserting a screwdriver straight into this hole should eject the magazine unless a disc was partially deployed when power was removed.The last page of the manual shows a picture that details which hole to use.

The manual can be found at:

Car stereo removal

any good car stero shop in your area will do it for free!! (on the hopes you will come back later to purchase from them.
you may try a thin (pointed) wire coathanger on each side, it is simply a hook at the end that needs to be dis-lodged.

Blaupunk car stereo

There could be a loose connection somewhere.
Does the sound stops on a regular time interval or only on certain conditions?
Would there be a chance that there's water leakage at the area where the CD changer is stored?
