Re: Sony compact disc player initializing

Have you tried pressing hte RESET switch?? It's behind the removeable front of the stereo, use a biro or something and hold it in for a bit.

Failing that, check that there isn't a CD already in it, could be a dodgy CD?

The optic inside the CD player may be dirty or damp, this is the part that reads the data from the cd, you can try cd cleaning discs or you may have get an engineer to open it and clean it with an alcohol swab. The optic could also be faulty which will be cheaper to buy a new cd player.

Try holding the reset switch for 5 seconds. It's located under the front unit/fascia of the stereo so you'll need to take that off.

Cd player gives me a error code 4

The player doesn't like the brand of CDR your playing. Try using just a CD burner instead of a combo CD/DVD burner2_bing.gif. Also use Verbatim Pastel brand, because the player recognizes these discs easier. Also, it wouldn't hurt for you to run a commercial disc laser cleaner through this thing to clean the optical lens. Burn music using Nero software because its easy and the best.

TOC Error

I had the same problem with my KDC-M7024 CD player. All I done was put a cleaning disc into the player and let it play for 2-3minutes. The disc has a small cleaning brush on it which spins around like a normal CD would and as the bristles pass over the laser it removes any dust.After that it worked fine but i still have to run the disc through every 3-4 months or the problem persists.
