Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

I have a used Sony CDX 505 RF changer that I removed from my Corvette and now trying to install in my 86 El Camino. I keep getting error code E-04 which shows dirty disks, this is not the trouble. Do I need a adaptor for this car? kenorpat@aol.com

    I hope someone else has a better answer than the one I got on this problem. I have used this changer in a Corvette, Delorean and a Winnebago Motor Home. Now you tell me I need a adapter. I have the FM Modulator and this is all that I have ever used. You can do better then say....Of course you need a adapter. Thanks Ken

    This sounds better then the adapter answer, BUT how do I clean the laser lens? Thanks Ken

No adaptor is needed, just use the supplied FM modulator and tune in the radio unit. The error code appears because the laser lens is dirty - clean it.

    Either use a CD lens cleaner disk - you can buy one at every electronics shop - or, for better results, take the charger apart, access the reading head and wipe yourself the lens with a q-tip and use a can of compressed air to blow the dust from underneath.

  • Azrael SRL Sep 02, 2010

    In that case there's nothing more you can do, the laser has baked the dirt right on the plastic lens and now it's impossible to remove. This is unfixable, either you find another laser head (a Sony repair shop should be able to order a new one at the factory) or you junk the entire unit if the price for a new head is too high.

You did not state how old your automobile is but it is likely that the Sony disc changer has failed. Trunk mounting is a tough environment.

What is an E-04 error code for a Sony CDX-454RF. How do we correct this code


E 04 means it can't read the disc. You can try to run an optical cleaner thru it, just make sure you use one that has fluid. They sell for 20 or so anywhere. Beyond that, it would need a new optic. Hope this helps

Intermittent error code E-04 - CD won't play


I looked it up at Sony.com.They say E-04 means there is a problem with the CD changer(real helpful huh).It says you can press the reset button to reset your CD changer,but you will lose all memory and have to re-program it.The diagram looks like it has a removable faceplate?It is under there.Use a fine point to press it like a pencil.There is an * though and it says CDC-X517M only though.It also is basically the only resolution they give.They say if that doesn't work,you have to send it to an authorized AIWA center.
You may need PDF to look at the page.If yo do not have it,it is a free download,just google for it.I did it and you do not get ads popping up everywhere nor is it harmful.

Code 99


e-99 indicates that there is some type of mechanical jam, the microprocessor requires reset, or the system had some major failure. try to remove power from the system for a few moments, and then reconnect. this will rest the microprocessor and possibly restore function. if there's a disc stuck in the magazine, or stuck somewhere in the loading or unloading sequence, it's sometimes possible to free this but the changer will have to be removed from the vehicle and partially disassembled.
