Re: error 11

It simply means it fails to complete the self test program upon power up. This could be most mechanical, a miss aligned gear, loose or dropped drive belt or foreign material accidentally dropped inside. Opening the cover and examin the mechanism may just spot the problem.

I get the message "error 11". What does it mean?

Error 11 is disk dirty, disc scratched, or mechanical failure. Try a lens cleaner. If that does not work, the CD player is bad.

Hope helps.

I have the same problem error 4 in my lexus rx330 please help me

I just left the Lexus dealership w/ my ES 330 (my changer reads "Error 3" upon starting my car, it also makes a loud ticking noise); go figure, the mechanic/technician there informed me that I need another motor for my disk changer - Merry Christmas and hello $675!

After turning your car off for about an hour or so, the cd player is supposed to reset itself enabling you to retrieve your cd's. Attribute this to having utilized burned cd's.

When yuo put a cd in the cd player it reads error 11 what is error 11 and how do you fix it?

Some Head units (cd players) dont like to play burnt discs. I love pioneer (deh-p6000ub)and that is all I use for head units, and sometimes, depending on how you burn the, they wont play. Make sure to use windows media player to burn your files, that might help. If you are using regular store bought cds, then you might need a new head unit, it might be an internal problem.

Error 11

Error 11 and or Error 17 is mean that CD is dirty or scratch, and the optic can not detect CD track.
Solved problem:
1. Clean the CD
2. Change open source by push knob going to "CD" display or push "search" from remote to "CD" display
3. If still come out Error 11, change the MP3 CD by Original CD with clean track CD.
4. For the last step, clean the optic sensor by CD cleaner for a few minute.
5. Check and try to play the CD again.

err11 right? causes are either-
1/ dirty, scratched or upside down disk
2/ electrical or mechanical system fault

solution for number 2 from pioneer is

Turn the car ignition off and on again, or press power on/off button on the display unit and start the cd playing again

and one more thing to do is to open the door to the disk changer and bottom right you have a reset button press that then try again :)

These are the only thing err 11 can be with this model

Hope this helps you

No manual is available from pioneer for download.

ERROR 11 on pioneer cd players is common.

It can be due to a failing laser or dirty lens. It means that the CD was not recognised, either because of the CD scratched, or it could possibly mean the laser is out of alignment.

If the player works fine with other discs - chances are it needs a good cleaning.

If the player wont read any discs - it's time for a service call. Typically - I charge $50USD for clean and alignment.

you can do it yourself (clean it) by disassembling the player, and using a qtip and isopropyl alcohol - however an alignment requires a special alignment tool.
