Clarion 6 Cd Changer 1999 Ford Expedition OEM - NO CD DJ on display

CD got jammed in magazine. Cd jam was cleared successfully and the changer was check prior to remounting, worked fine. I had pulled the radio out contemplating a change of radio, but decided against it, put the radio back.

Upon connecting the CD Changer now I get the prompt NO CD DJ in the radio display. Changer cylces fine, but does not load the disc. What can I look for before I find the hammer in the basement.

The radio only has to plugs in the back with a third cavity, that appears to be of no use, no plugs visible that would go in the cavity. Radio works AM FM except for the NO CD DJ prompt thing. Advise

    Correction to statement Radio has two plugs active and third plug cavity not being used. Or at least I don't see any plugh that fits in that third plug, which doesn't have pins either.

If you have a magazine-type CD changer there may be a CD jammed in transit between the magazine and the player mechanism. Disassembly may be required to find and fix the problem.

When i press eject the disc tray wont come out

did you just get through changing cds??? if so, you may have loaded a cd crooked in one of the trays. when this happens the tray gets jammed. usually the only way to get the magazine out is to take the changer apart and try to get the cd back in the tray.

Jammed cds in a 6 cd changer ford ranger 2002

sounds like the tray inside was misaligned when the cd went in. and it probally sent the disc into a occupied slot. you will have to remove radio and disassemble to repair. also try just unpluging radio and plug back in. sometimes it resets the radio and will start ejecting the cds

1999 Ford SE digital display reads ''NO CD'' and changer is stuck

Magazine-type CD changers are prone to jamming with a disc in transit between the magazine and the player. You may have to resort to disassembling the trunk unit to get access to the jam.

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.

Clarion arx9270 error

Typically means the CD is stuck, has a reading error, or the magazine is stuck. If jammed, you'll have to clear the stuck CD which may require disassembly. Try removing power and rebooting.

If all else fails, I recommend contacting a local car audio professional, or you may contact Clarion customer support directly by clicking here:

I trust this information has proven beneficial.
