    bestdarngood replyed also. But I have another question. He said I have a display button on the radio (not so)unless he is referring to another named button.
    To answer your question. It tries to load all 6 discs in secquence, then stops and shows the cose 2.
    I did not reply to bestdarngood.

    If this info helps, the radio model# is KDC-2022


  • rballman May 09, 2008


    Thanks for the info. The lens cleaner disc is a no go. I used it in the radio cd and it works perfectly, but not the changer.
    Step 2, For the life of me I cannot find the lens. The case is off as instructed and the front slide door is off. I don't know what a disk clamp is. Looked for 1/2 hour with no luck. Additional suggestions would be welcome. Used flashlight & magnifier.

    Located the lens, cleaned as instructed and reassembled and installed the unit. Result is the same. At this point I assume it needs a new lens to be repaired. It becomes a throw-away unless you can convince me otherwise. thanks for hanging in there. The unit has worked well since new in 2003.

Try the following

Step 1. You need a kenwood remote that has aphone style keypad(there are many of them they have numbers and letters like a phone pad)

Step2. Turn your radio on.... it will say ENTER CODE---- and look like this CODE----

Step3. Press and hold the DISP button and the volume up button at the same time for about 4 to 5 seconds, if you did this right you will be confirmed with a beep and the screen will change from CODE---- to CODE.

Step4. Your halfway there once you get to this far... now all you have to do is enter KCAR with the remote like your texting on a cellphone

Step5. To do this press the number 5 button, you will notice that a J will appear on the screen so just press it again and aK will appear to enter the K press the track forward button >>, then press the 2 for C and so on and so on til you spell KCAR...

The 6th and final step... press the track forward button once more to enter the code and there you have it

let me know if this does or doesn't work

    Changer Error Codes
    • E-00: Poor Cable connection.
    • E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
    • E-02: No Disc in magazine.
    • E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
    • E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
    • E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
    • E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

    So with error code 2 meaning no disc in magazine, that would suggest since you do have a cd in there, that either the laser lens needs to be cleaned or that the laser itself is bad or has a bad connection. either way you will have to open it up to check it out, is there anything to suggest why this started happening?

    To clean the lens follow the below instructions

    Step 1

    Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find
    these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually
    get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails.

    Remove the outer casing of the changer.
    Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the deck,
    which houses the laser pickup lens.

    Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the disc clamp. The lens
    will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding
    the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the

    Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens.
    Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other
    end of the swab.

    Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the

    If cleaning it doesn't work then check for a loose or broken connection, let me know what you find, thanks

    do you see the spot where the disc would sit if in the player? If so, then you will find the laser/lens below this area, under the bottom of where the disc would sit. Please take a picture if you still can't find it of the inside and I would be happy to direct you from the picture.

1 Answer


Its because of the disc three is out of its potion in the tray. You have to remove the mechanism to remove the disc from the tray. You have to be very carefull while removing the mechanism because the cd loading mechanism is a very complicated part of cd players . Because when you remove the mechanism to eject the disc, the timing of of the the machanisum can be changed this will lead to malfunction of the loading arms and wheels and will cause serious damages to the mechanism. If you are not aware of how to remove the the try to contact the bose servicing centre.
If you are confident the try to remove the cd manually.

Hi, I own a VK 90D, It was satisfactory only until about 2 months back. I started gettin DVD H05 error. It became ok after i disconnected and tried again.. But only today i got error DVD H02 n no dvd...

H02,H05,H07 is an error code in Panasonic home theater system and dvd player which appear after an unsuccessful loading of DVD,CD. This is commonly caused by a faulty lens assembly and the main board. If you want to troubleshoot it yourself, here are some basic steps that may guide you. Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust build up and some tiny foreign objects the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
If you already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then the fault is either on the optical lens and the main board. It is technical to diagnose the fault between the two, I will advice you to send it to panasonic service center to isolate the problem.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!

I have a Pioneer CD player that is probably about twenty-five years old. It has a six CD holder that fits into the changer. This changer moves the CD's in and out of the player. You can play them in order...

It cycles through the CDs because it can not read any of them. The most common cause of this is the lens falling out. These players have the optics upside down. You load the CDs with the label down correct? The lens is probably floating around inside the unit. Sometimes you can reinstall the lens and the unit is OK. Please use a small amount of clear nail polish to "glue" the lens in place. Anything else will cloud up the lens making the unit junk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the unit may need a ribbon cable or just a complete alignment.

Good luck.
