Question about Sony Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I have a 1997 Toyota Avalon LSX with a factory 12 disk changer (in the trunk). When I press the button to switch to CD mode the stereo gives the message ''Open''- however the CD cartridge is fully inserted. When the CD cartridge is not inserted the stereo does not switch to CD mode but stays on radio.

SOURCE: stock 1997 Ford Explorer 6 CD changer stopped playing CDs

We finally realized that all of the "advisers" on the internet want to charge for their advice, and their advice in this case is univerally that the unit should just be replaced. Ya think?! Could of figured that one out on our own.....what a joke...

Don't waste your money and buy those repair manuals. There is an easy fix for this. The rootcause is most likely related to your disc tray (crooked carrier or broken spring). Just get a small screwdriver and take out the two black srews of the inner faceplate, covering the cassette tray itself. Please make sure you do not drop those tiny screws. Use a magnetic tip screw driver. Take the faceplate off. You will see a litlle lever in the center. Just push it aside and your cassette will pop out with no problem. That simple. So don't waste your money!!!

I have replaced battery to my car Avalon 2012..after that the stero .CD. message have appeared (the pro gramme can not read please consult service dealer)o please can you advise me what i do .


Hi Anonymous!,
  • Your stereo has TDS (theft deterrent system). With a sudden lost of power it assumes theft or unauthorized removal and goes into a protection mode.
  • The code might also be built into the Service Card or written in the trunk in some cases.
  • Call or go to the dealer to get your player reactivated.
  • They can also give you the code for future lock out. Put it somewhere safe.

Just bought a used 1997 Jetta with 6 disk CD changer. The changer once was selectable through the Mode button on the Dash Radio, but it was unable to read the disk. Now the dash radio doesn't even select...


Your car is 13 years old. The lens on your disc reader is also 13 years old . They get extremely dirty. Especially if the changer is in the trunk. I'd try using a disc lens cleaner to see if that fixes the issue. Could be that its just worn out. Hard to say . Have you taken it to a stereo shop ? I'd take it to one of those before you take it to the dealer. The dealer will waaaaaaay over charge you for diagnostics on a cd changer where as a local stereo shop would Probly fix it for ya for next to nothing.

Where is the compact disc changer located in my 2001 toyota avalon


It depends on which system you have, there sometimes a BOSE CD Changer inside the Trunk, mounted UP under the read horizontal.

On some radio's, they are internally... so you just eject each one.

2007 Toyota Camry When I put disk in the CD player after about 30 seconds of it flashing saying reading disk it then shows an ERROR 1!?? Any help??? Thks


It can be dirty or faulty disk,but if that's not the case the problem relates to cd player lens.Its not reading the disk.The inside lens which reads and detects the cd is either got dirty or its faulty and unit has to be replaced.-------So whether is dirty lens or faulty that can be confirmed once the unit is inspected.Try running lens cleaning cd in your cd player unit and see if that is helping.========For more help i suggest refer the help links mentioned below:------

I want to upgrade my stereo in my 1997 toyota avalon but don't know if I can bypass the security -it says that the radio will not work if it is removed. Does it mean the factory radio or any stereo I put...


Hi.
The 'factory' radio has the security feature built into it.

You can add any type of aftermarket radio with no problems.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Help - can't use it!


usually there is a button combo you press on the stereo in the car to tell it to enter CD changer mode, his combo is dependent on the manufacturer of Stereo in your car, on mine you press the CD button while turning on, once in CD changer mode you should be able to select CD and track. Yes the CDs have to be a particular way up, although there is only a choice of 2 different ways so trial and error should suffice :)
