Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Pretty common problem, most likely the laser optics are wearing out, or the laser lens could be dirty, have dust on it, clean the lens with a q-tip and 70% rubbing alcohol. Use only a small amount on the tip of the Qtip. Or you can use Laser Cleaning Disc CD.

If the problem still remains, there might be a faulty capacitor on the board of the drive / unit that is preventing it from reading the disc properly. or the laser is too weak to read the disc anymore and the laser reader would need to be replaced entirely.

    The cd players laser reader needs to be replaced in that case. if you have checked what I've told you. It is very much easier for you to replace the whole cd player in that case if you can't obtain a new lens assembly for the drive.

    But If you have taken apart the cd player to check for faulty capacitors, and if you have access to the drive and you can see the lens, it may have adjustment screws on the reader that you can use to calibrate the laser. It might help but first check that the laser assembly is clean - dust free, use compressed air to clean it - To calibrate the laser find the screws that adjust the lens and screw the screws in as much as they go and test a cd, if you still get the error adjust / open the screws a little bit and then test another disc. Repeat this until the cd reads, if they do not read after you no longer can adjust the screws then the whole laser assembly needs to be replaced to get the player working again. At that point it is easier to replace the whole player.

I have found that any "burned" discs will not be read on older cd/radio combinations. The newer sets will tell you on the box what formats can be read...I also found this to be true on dvd players

The laser lens is out of place. Try using a q tip and gently pressing on the lens to see if it moves back in place.

I have 2006 chevy impala What does it means I try to put my cd in to play its say error


It means that your CD player is not reading the CD , try a different CD and preferably original CD and see if it reads it then. If the CD player works ok then, you had bad CD and if it should read error again then the CD player it self is defective.

I hav a clarion auto cd/stereo displaying err 6 please explain, thank you


Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD.
Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination.
Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable.
Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM.
Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.

For error code 6:
Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!

Boot error! please format unit


It might be cause by a corrupt firmware. You need to have a utility that restore the mp3 player to its original setting. i had exactly the same problem with my ipod shuffle 1st generation 2 years ago. Good thing Apple has that utility for me to download and until no it is still working. Try to visit and upgrade the firmware using this link for you mp3 player http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=192


Please Rate Appropriately Thanks!
