Re: cd changer home stereo pioneer system

Pioneer cd players have the common problem of losing their laser lens due to the glue that holds it in place going brittle over time. try shaking the player from side to side and upside down to see if you can hear the lens rattling about. if you recover the lens, very carefully slot it back in place and apply a tiny drop of glue (NOT SUPERGLUE) to the outside edge of the lens taking care not to get any on the focus area and leave to dry. all should be well after this. i find UHU GLUE in the yellow tubes do a lasting fix but don't use SUPERGLUE as the fumes will coat the lens.

hope this helps?

CD Changer in RX330 Lexus 2004 shows error 4

I just fixed my 2005 RX330 CD changer jam, and saved $800-1000. It was easy, if you first spend $6 at:
Here you will find pics and instructions on how to remove the stereo/changer. Mine was a Pioneer, and the stereo came out in 5 minutes. I could not find instructions how to take it apart, so I experimented a little. The secret was to take the top lid off the changer - 9 little screws, and a piece of black tape. Under the lid, I found my problem - a CD had been inserted too soon (the WAIT sign actually means what it says!), and I just lifted it off the top plate. Under the plate I could see 2 more CDs, in the 6 slot holder, but they seemed to be free and not jammed. So without reassembling the stereo, I plugged it back in. The changer cycled, I hit eject twice to get the other CDs out, and all is well.

Cd changer

You can use any CD changer that has an FM modulater. You would listen to it by tuning in to a station on your tuner.

The sales person at any place that sells car stereos would be able to show you the right type of changer.

If your radio has a cd changer controller built into it, you need to check with the dealership to find out what the OEM changer would be. But a FM modulator will work with any car stereo.

Kenwood, Pioneer, JVC, Clarion, Alpine all sell FM modulator CD changers. I would not personally buy any of the cheaper no name brands. The money you save on the cost is not worth the difference in quality. Panasonic is a very good brand for car stereos but not home stereos, but I don't know if they make CD changers. if they do, that would be a good brand.

Cant play cds

Easy peasy (for me at least).
Disconnect the battery, then...
... reconnect the battery
Just done it to mine - all hunky dory.
The CD 'rebooted' - equivalent to turning a PC off and on again!
Delighted to save the time and expense of visiting a garage!
