I just bought a lexus es300 and has a pioneer 12changer in the trunk with a control unit up front. The power comes on and is showing that a disc is playing but no sound. I tried to change to every station to pick it up but no sound yet. Any ideas. Thanks a lot for your help.

With the top off the unit, you can turn the tray gears manually for slow eject function. Unplug unit before touching anything inside, check internal fuses. Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams and shorts. Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate when loading, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position.

Hi Thanks for responding to my request for help. Unfortunately the problem is now academic as the CD head has decided to quit for good. I did find out however from Pioneer that these particular models were only made for the Asian market and it was unlikely that English owners manuals would be available for it.
Panasonic CD changers have a specific plug in that will not work with the Pioneer head unit. The Pioneer uses the IP-BUS plug. You will also not be able to convert the unit to work because the data between the two cannot be controlled and you won't have the ability to use the units together.
these are designed to hook to a head unit from Pioneer. There are many units that will work if they have a P as part of the unit number. There are some with some cassette units, some with CD units, some with other connections.
